 Following the WS-I Basic Profile WG meeting February 4 - 6 in Redmond, WA, authors of   
 the recently-published WS-Policy, WS-Trust and WS-SecureConversations specifications    
 will host a one-day meeting on February 7, 8am to 5pm, to discuss these and related     
 specifications (WS-PolicyAssertions, WS-Policy Attachment and WS-SecurityPolicy) and    
 general thoughts about the problem spaces addressed.                                    
 This is an ad-hoc, open forum for 1) SPECIFICATION AUTHORS to share background          
 information on the design of the specifications and to receive feedback and 2) SOFTWARE 
 VENDORS to discuss their ideas about the practicality of implementing these and related 
 Web Services specifications.                                                            
 We'd like this to be an open meeting and collect a broad range of ideas. If you are     
 interested in participating in the discussions, please reply to this mail and we will   
 make sure that there is space for you.                                                  
 The agenda is currently flexible. We will include presentations on the named            
 specifications and welcome discussions of others. We anticipate a good discussion on    
 these and welcome suggestions for other items to be included in the agenda. This should 
 give us a good opportunity to discuss the appropriate factoring of the needed work in   
 this area and the appropriate scope for key technical workgroups and specifications.    
 The authors of the WS-Policy, WS-Trust and WS-SecureConversations, WS-PolicyAssertions, 
 WS-Policy Attachment and WS-SecurityPolicy Specifications intend to submit revised      
 versions of these specifications to a standards body with a commitment to grant a       
 royalty-free license to their necessary patents.  We need assurance that your feedback  
 and discussions are consistent with that goal.  (You will need to sign the following    
 agreement as part of registration at the meeting):                                      
 The specifications listed above (“Specifications”) are expected to be discussed as part 
 of this workshop.  You are not required to provide any comments or input (“Comments”)   
 on these Specifications, but any Comments you do provide may be incorporated into these 
 Specifications.  By signing below, you (on behalf of yourself if you are an individual  
 and your company if you are providing Comments on behalf of the company) grant to the   
 authors of the Specifications (“Authors”) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, 
 perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free copyright license to copy, publish, license,       
 modify, sublicense or otherwise distribute and exploit Comments you provide. Likewise,  
 if incorporation of your Comments into any of these Specifications would cause an       
 implementation of any of such Specifications (as modified) to infringe a patent or      
 patent application that you control, you commit to grant a royalty-free license to it.  
 You warrant that (a) to the best of your knowledge you have rights to provide these     
 Comments, and if you are providing Comments on behalf of a company, you have the rights 
 to provide Comments on behalf of your company; (b) the Comments are not confidential to 
 you or to another party; and (c) to the best of your knowledge use of the Comments      
 would not cause an implementation of any of the Specifications (as modified) to         
 infringe any third-party  patent or patent application known to you.  You also          
 acknowledge that the Authors are not required to incorporate your Comments into any     
 version of any of the Specifications.                                                   
 Please reply to Sarah Jamieson (sarahj@microsoft.com)
