Dear TC chairs,

The Consortium is making plans now for an exciting fall/winter with some great opportunities for OASIS InterOps. These public interoperability demonstrations showcase multi-vendor implementations of approved OASIS work. Usually hosted in connection with a conference or trade show, OASIS InterOps are official Consortium activities, endorsed by one or more OASIS TCs, and mutually supported by OASIS staff and OASIS InterOp participants.

Staff will provide assistance in promoting and organizing these events, but the real energy (and scripts) comes from the TC leadership and members.  TC participants demonstrate the usefulness of a spec, and its practical availability across a range of vendor platforms. 

Prior InterOps have generated tremendous energy and strong trade press for the work product.  Public InterOp events are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate real, shippable standards-based solutions for e-business problems.    

Several conference organizers are interested in featuring OASIS InterOps, they include:

1) Delphi (4-7 Oct, BPX 2004)
2) OASIS Open Standards Days (4-8 Oct.)
3) Gartner (15-17 Nov, Applications Integration and Web Services Summit)
4) IDEAlliance (XML 2004, 16-18 Nov) <http://www.xmlconference.org/xmlusa/>
5) RSA (23-27 Feb) <http://2004.rsaconference.com/us/c4p/>

If your TC has an approved OASIS Committee Draft or OASIS Standard, or expects to be at that stage prior to these events, we encourage you to consider conducting a multi-member InterOp.  However, in order to make arrangements, we need to hear from you by June 15. If there is another conference at which you'd like to demonstrate, please let us know. We are ready to work with you to coordinate logistics, participation, and promotion.

Clearly, conferences organizers want OASIS InterOps because they recognize the quality of the work of OASIS TCs and the growing market power of open standards. Your diligence and efforts to advance open standards are much appreciated.
