Subject: OASIS News 6 January 2006

6 January 2006

Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements, accomplishments, and activities for the international standards consortium.

EML and WS-Security Submitted for Consideration as OASIS Standards

OASIS members are asked to review two new candidates for OASIS Standards. Election Markup Language (EML) v4.0, submitted by the
OASIS Election and Voter Services TC, is designed to enable the exchange of data for public and private election services. The
WS-Security v1.1 specification, developed by the OASIS Web Services Security (WSS) TC, delivers a technical foundation for
implementing security functions such as integrity and confidentiality in messages implementing higher-level Web services
applications. The familiarization period for both specifications ends 15 Jan, and a call for voting will be issued 16 Jan.


Public Review of WS-Topics Specification Begins

The OASIS Web Services Notification (WSN) TC has approved the WS-Topics v1.3 specification for public review. All interested parties
are encouraged to provide comments on this document, designed to advance a pattern-based approach allowing Web services to
disseminate information to one another. Comments on WS-Topics must be received by 20 Jan.


OASIS Extends Symposium Call for Participation Deadline

Due to the recent holidays and a number of requests from potential contributors, the deadline to submit topics for this year's OASIS
Symposium has been extended. Proposals for presentations, panel sessions, and topics related to the different facets of
interoperability may be submitted through the event web site until 13 Jan.


PKI Steering Committee Nominations Open

The OASIS PKI Member Section will elect five representatives to its Steering Committee. Nominations are open until 17 Jan. Elections
will be held 18 Jan - 1 Feb. Steering Committee members serve one-year terms and must be OASIS members in good standing. Each
organizational member of the OASIS PKI Member Section is eligible to participate in the voting process.


Volunteers Work to Translate WSBPEL into Japanese

The BPEL Seminar, a volunteer group, is currently translating the OASIS Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WSBPEL)
specification into Japanese. In order to avoid duplication, all those interested in translating WSBEL or BPEL4WS into Japanese are
asked to review the BPEL Seminar wiki at http://wiki.livedoor.jp/the_pandas_panda/d/Translation. 
OASIS encourages volunteer efforts like this to translate or fund the translation of OASIS Standards, specifications or other
documents. Review the OASIS Translation Policy for details.
