Subject: OASIS News: 22 May 2006

22 May 2006

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

ISO and IEC Approve OpenDocument OASIS Standard

The International Standards Organization (ISO) and the International
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recently approved the OpenDocument OASIS
Standard. The format was developed and continues to be advanced by the OASIS
OpenDocument TC, and its use is promoted by the OASIS ODF Adoption Committee.
Defining an open XML file format for office applications, the standard is
suitable for text, spreadsheets, charts, graphs, presentations, and databases.
The format frees documents from their applications-of-origin, enabling them to
be exchanged, retrieved, and edited with any OpenDocument-compliant software or
tool. OpenDocument has been given the designation, ISO/IEC 26300.


OASIS Board Nominations Close Tuesday

Nominations for the OASIS Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board close
23 May. To participate in the elections, all candidates must be nominated by an
OASIS member and must accept their nominations in writing by 23:45 hrs, 11:45 pm
US EDT (UTC -4) on Tuesday. 


See SPML InterOp at Burton Catalyst Conference 

Members of the OASIS Provisioning Services TC will demonstrate interoperability
of the Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) v2.0 at the Burton Catalyst
Conference, 14 June in San Francisco. The InterOp will showcase user account
provisioning scenarios, including password management, account suspension and
account reconciliation. A variety of application vendors will participate,
proving how the SPML-based identity integration interface provides simple
integration to enhance customer usability. Contact dee.schur@oasis-open.org for
