Here is the information on the Symposium again, in case you need it. For those working on proposals, the submission information is at the end of the announcement below. -----Original Message----- From: Carol Geyer [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Monday, January 19, 2004 8:23 AM To: email@example.com Subject: [OASIS members] OASIS Symposium OASIS SYMPOSIUM Reliable Infrastructures for XML 26-27 April 2004 * New Orleans, Louisiana, USA http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium/ All OASIS members are strongly encouraged to attend the OASIS Symposium on Reliable Infrastructures for XML. The event is open to members and the general public and will feature: * Presentations from experts on XML-based messaging and networking standards, a two-day program developed by the OASIS Technical Advisory Board. * OASIS Plenary and Annual General Meeting, where members review a state-of-the-union address from the OASIS Board of Directors and offer open feedback on the issues affecting the Consortium and standards development. * Evening reception, the perfect place to network with OASIS members, directors, and staff--New Orleans style. * OASIS Technical Committee Meetings, two days of face-to-face working sessions. Space is extremely limited! Members are advised to register for the Symposium and make hotel reservations EARLY as the event coincides with the popular New Orleans Jazz Festival. ____________________________________________________ Call for Presentations Today, many different--and partially interchangeable--technologies are available that propose to increase the reliability of XML-based messaging and networking infrastructure. The OASIS Symposium on Reliable Infrastructures for XML brings together experts and developers from around the globe to discuss the alternatives, determine the fit behind the specifications, and assess just how close the solutions lie. The Symposium provides attendees with a forum to exchange ideas and present results of standards work-in-progress. It also offers the opportunity to identify unaddressed topics in need of standardization and areas where coordination between standards efforts would promote interoperability. Deadline for proposals: 9 Feb. http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium/program.php ____________________________________________________ OASIS Technical Committee Meetings Space will be available for OASIS TCs wishing to conduct face-to-face working sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, 28-29 April.
