Subject: RE: [regrep] [Fwd: [OASIS members] Call For Presentations: OASIS Symposium]


This is a use case for a Semantic/Knowledge Aware ebXML Registry.
Imagine a Semantic/Knowledge aware ebXML Registry sitting at the heart
of Network operations Center.

Subject: [regrep] [Fwd: [OASIS members] Call For Presentations: OASIS

Upon reading this announcement, I immediately began to consider the
OASIS TCs that this announcement might best pertain to. Several TCs
immediately came to mind, namely SAML, WS-Security, and WSRM. For some
others, it was not so clear.

Does anyone have a good idea as to whether or not our Registry TC could
apply to this in a direct way? If not, perhaps indirectly?

Perhaps OASIS could provide a list of TCs that would be most pertinent
for this call?

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

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.


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 
* 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.


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


OASIS will publish proceedings of the symposium. Authors should arrange 
for any necessary releases for publication prior to submission of their 

To submit a proposal, please send the following information by email to 

* 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.
