Subject: WS-Calendar Version 1.0 approved as a Committee Specification

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval of an OASIS Committee
Specification (CS) by the members of the OASIS Web Services Calendar
(WS-Calendar) TC:

WS-Calendar Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
30 July 2011

WS-Calendar describes
.       A semantic (or information) model for exchange of calendar
information to coordinate activities
.       A means of synchronizing and maintaining calendars

The specification includes XML vocabularies for the interoperable and
standard exchange of:
.       Schedules, including sequences of schedules
.       Intervals, including sequences of Intervals
.       Other calendar information consistent with the IETF iCalendar standards

These vocabularies describe schedules and Intervals future, present,
or past (historical).

The specification is divided into three parts.
1) The information model and XML vocabularies for exchanging schedule
2) RESTful Services for calendar update and synchronization
3) Web services for calendar update and synchronization

The Technical Committee will publish Parts 2 and 3 in a later version.
