The event is free for members and guests; however, advance registration is required. The CloudAuthZ TC will be holding a face-to-face meeting at Cloud Connect, and the CAMP TC will be meeting in the area as well.


2013 Board election schedule posted

Five seats on the OASIS Board of Directors and two seats on the Technical Advisory Board will be open for election this year. Any member may serve; only organizational members may nominate candidates. Nominations open 8 Apr. Questions for candidates will be accepted until 3 May.


UBL 2.1 public review begins

Universal Business Language is a generic XML interchange format for business documents that can be restricted or extended to meet the requirements of particular industries. Version 2.1 includes 65 business documents used in the procurement and transportation domains (e.g.: invoices, purchase orders, waybills, transportation status messages, etc.). This public review ends 2 Apr.


TC approves WS-Calendar SOAP-based Services

This new Committee Specification describes standard messages and interactions for service interactions with a system that hosts calendar-based information using SOAP. Hosted information can be either traditional personal and enterprise calendar information or services that support XML payloads developed in conformance with the WS-Calendar specification. Congratulations to WS-Calendar TC co-chairs, Toby Considine of the University of North Carolina, and Gershon Janssen, and to all TC members for accomplishing this milestone.

OASIS eGov seeks Steering Committee candidates

Nominations are now open for five seats, at least three of which must be filled by public sector representatives. The eGov Member Section serves as a focal point for discussions of governmental and public administration requirements for e-business standardization. Bringing together representatives from global, regional, national and local government agencies, OASIS eGov provides a platform for those who share a common interest in directing and understanding the impact of open standards on the public sector. All OASIS eGov Member Section participants are invited to nominate Steering Committee candidates by 21 Mar.
