Subject: FW: [OASIS members] Call For Presentations: OASIS Symposium
FYI - could the interoperability demo be run here as well? -----Original Message----- From: Karl F. Best [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Friday, December 19, 2003 2:20 PM To: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [OASIS members] Call For Presentations: OASIS Symposium The OASIS Symposium on Reliable Infrastructures for XML April 26th and 27th, 2004 in New Orleans, Louisiana Call for Presentations OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards, invites you to submit a proposal for a presentation, panel discussion or tutorial for the OASIS Symposium on Reliable Infrastructures for XML. The goals of the symposium are to: * Provide a forum for OASIS Technical Committee members to exchange ideas and present results of ongoing work, works-in-progress, etc.; * Identify areas where coordination between standards efforts is needed to promote interoperability; * Identify unaddressed topics where standards development is needed; * Enable outside experts to present issues / opportunities to OASIS members. The symposium will be followed by two days available to OASIS Technical Committees, Joint Committees and Member Sections for face-to-face working sessions. The OASIS Annual General Meeting will also be held in conjunction with the symposium. Overview Many different (and partially interchangeable) technologies are proposed or available to increase the reliability of XML-based messaging and networking infrastructure. These include technologies applied: * At the transport layer (e.g. reliable messaging specifications); * At the application layer (e.g. transaction protocols); * At intermediate levels (e.g. routing, point-to-point compared to end-to-end); * By using Message-Oriented Middleware as a carrier for XML messages. We define "reliable" to mean that implementing one or more of these technologies in an infrastructure removes some of the burden of ensuring application integrity from software programmers and architects. The OASIS Symposium is focused on exploring the current state of these technologies and exploring areas where open standards are needed. Instructions The symposium program committee invites you to submit a proposal for a presentation, panel discussion or tutorial that addresses technologies and standards for reliable XML infrastructures. Presentations should be 30 minutes long including question and answer. Sessions will consist of related presentations, ending with a question-and-answer session directed to the presenters. Panel sessions should be 60 minutes long. Proposals for panels should include the topic, 3-to-4 potential panelists (name and/or role) and proposed format (e.g. Q&A, short presentations). Tutorials should be 1/2 day sessions. Tutorial proposals should state intended audience and learning objectives. Proposals should address topics in reliability as applied to XML-based communications at the technology and implementation levels, ideally driven by usage scenarios. Special consideration will be given to proposals that: * Compare and contrast multiple related technologies (clear comparisons of published and forthcoming XML transaction protocols) with a view toward guidance for application architects; * Support and consider decisions about choice of appropriate technologies (e.g. use of reliable messaging and simpler protocols rather than transactional termination protocols); * Place OASIS technologies in a broader context of competing or complementary specifications (e.g. relating OASIS work to the variety of published reliable messaging specifications); * Consider alternative approaches to transaction management (e.g. local rollback versus compensation-based protocols); * Compare reliability techniques for environmental models containing benign threats versus malign threats; * Consider techniques for ensuring accountability of origin and receipt; * Discuss the impact of digital signatures and encryption on reliability techniques. OASIS will publish proceedings of the symposium. Authors should arrange for any necessary releases for publication prior to submission of their proposal. To submit a proposal, please send the following information by email to email@example.com: * The full contact details (name, affiliation, email, phone, postal address) of one presenter who will act as the primary contact for the proposal or panel discussion; * The full list of authors; * A 1-page abstract outlining the subject and key points of your proposal, panel discussion or tutorial. All submissions will be acknowledged.
