Subject: OASIS symposium agenda
Hi, Below is the email sent in January with additional information about the lightning rounds. Also, are there other TCs that we should meet with? Quite a few are planning to be there, so please let me know who we should try to meet with, and I will try to schedule a time with the Chair.

Based on TC member responses, I have reserved a room at the Symposium for our face-to-face meeting. We should also begin to think about 3-4 slides that will provide an overview and update on the ebXML Registry TC work for the OASIS TC Lightning Round Updates described below. I will be happy to present unless someone else would like to, but would like input on the material and what you think is most important to present given the limit on slides. This is also a good opportunity to identify other TCs we would like to meet with, form liaisons, collaborations, etc. Please let me know which TCs you would like to meet with, and I will start the contact.

We hope to see many of you there. To make the event as productive as possible, we're planning several special events, including two that relate to your TC leadership role and so worth a mention here: >Effectively Leading an OASIS Committee >[Wednesday evening] > OASIS staff will join new, existing, and prospective TC leaders to >discuss issues surrounding the operational issues in running a TC, >including the TC Process, IPR Policy , Kavi, membership, interops, >publicity, spec testing, and more. We plan some conversation about the > best practices for building consensus, promoting adoption, coping with > legal realities, and taking advantage of Consortium resources. All TC > chairs, secretaries, and editors are strongly encouraged to attend this > session. Anyone with an interest in a leadership role in a new or > existing TC is also welcome. > >OASIS TC Lightning Round. >[Tuesday late afternoon] > This year's Annual General Meeting for members will feature an >overview *of* the TCs, *by* the TCs--lightning round updates on each >OASIS Committee. It promises to be a great opportunity to educate >members on what your TC is accomplishing, find out the status of related > work, appeal for input, and identify areas for liaison and > development. Each TC may (and should) designate one representative to > deliver a short presentation on their work. Presentations will be > compiled and posted on the OASIS site following the AGM. Jamie's comments: For the Lightning Round, given >60 TCs, we are hoping for 3-4 slides' or 2-3 minutes worth of compact status data and pointers per committee. We think it will be a great chance to cross-fertilize and learn. Would each TC please identify someone to represent the TC at this session or, if that's not possible, provide material in advance. We will talk about each TC briefly, in any case; and of course we'd rather hear about it from its own members. For the TC Leadership session, we should have plenty to discuss, as the imminent revisions to our TC Process and IPR Policy are rolled out, along with OASIS membership database upgrades and other feature improvements. It's even possible that a few of our members will think of tough questions for us. Live microphone. Guaranteed non-boring. For both sessions, I hope you will be able to join us for an interesting discussion. Please feel free to send us any suggestions for specific issues you'd like us to address. I want to emphasize how important co-location and community-building is to our work. Standards work is significantly improved by broad cross-fertilization. Intellectual hybrid vigor consistently works better than a "bell-jar" project that keeps its heads down throughout its lifecycle. Our co-location F2F experiments at OASIS are positive: participants say they're energized and more likely to actively contribute. Some other standards groups do much more to cluster F2F activity. Doing more with co-location at OASIS may be worth further discussion. The OASIS Technical Advisory Board meets later this week in Phoenix, AZ USA. Once Mary and I return, we'll have more to report to this list, about priorities, successes, failures and predictions for our standards development infrastructure at OASIS.
