Subject: Interop Demo opportunities at XML 2004

When we last discussed this in June there was interest in doing an
Interop Demo at XML 2004.  If we are still interested (and I believe we
are!) we need to begin to make plans and determine who will be able to
participate, what other groups we might want to interoperate with, etc.
I also need to let Dee know our interest and level of participation ASAP
so that they can work on the arrangements.  (BTW, I will not be able to
attend due to a conflicting work conference at the same time).

We can also discuss this at our next telecon (briefly - we have a very
full agenda!) but it would be good to get some e-mail dialog going.

Here is Dee's original note:

Subject: [chairs] Interop Demo Opportunities
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

	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
	4) IDEAlliance (XML 2004, 16-18 Nov)
	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. 
	Dee Schur
