Subject: WS-Calendar Platform Independent Model (PIM) Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01 published

OASIS Members,

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS Web Services Calendar (WS-Calendar) TC:

WS-Calendar Platform Independent Model (PIM) Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
09 October 2014


The Platform Independent Model is an abstract model that defines conformance and improves interoperation of calendar and schedule models with each other and with WS-Calendar and Xcal, which are in turn based on IETF RFCs.

This is a Platform Independent Model under the Object Management Group’s Model-Driven Architecture. The Platform Dependent Model to which this specification relates is the full model for WS-Calendar as expressed in XML (xCal).

The focus of this Platform Independent Model is on describing and passing schedule and interval information with information attachments.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:

Distribution ZIP file

For your convenience, OASIS provides a complete package of the prose specification and related files in a ZIP distribution file. You can download the ZIP file here:


Members of the OASIS Web Services Calendar (WS-Calendar) TC [1] approved this specification by Special Majority Vote. The specification had been released for public review as required by the TC Process [2]. The vote to approve as a Committee Specification passed [3], and the document is now available online in the OASIS Library as referenced above.

Our congratulations to the TC on achieving this milestone and our thanks to the reviewers who provided feedback on the specification drafts to help improve the quality of the work.
