Kathryn Breininger Boeing Library Services 425-965-0182 phone -----Original Message----- From: Jane Harnad [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:28 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [announce] OASIS Symposium - Deadlines Approaching OASIS SYMPOSIUM - DEADLINES APPROACHING Website: http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/ Dates: 24-29 April 2005 Location: New Orleans, Louisiana, USA Sponsored by: BEA Systems, DataPower, HP, IBM, Innodata Isogen, SAP, and Sun Microsystems REGISTRATION - EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT DEADLINE - 1 APRIL Registrations are increasing daily, so please don't delay. The early-bird discount ends 1 APRIL - THIS FRIDAY. The meeting fee includes access to all Symposium sessions, luncheons, coffee breaks, receptions, and associated materials. In addition, the meeting fee includes access to the Pre-Symposium Tutorials. Signup is required to attend the tutorials and space is limited. Additional registration information and form may be found at: http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/registration.php HOTEL RESERVATION DEADLINE - 1 APRIL The deadline for securing the OASIS group rate is 1 APRIL. The Symposium coincides with the popular New Orleans Jazz Festival again this year, so space and rates will be an issue. The rooms will be released to the general public after 1 APRIL, and the group rate will no longer be guaranteed. For additional information on the hotel, please go to http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/hotel_info.php SYMPOSIUM BOOK TABLE - 1 APRIL The Symposium Book Table will showcase the growing body of books that feature technical and executive-level information on OASIS Standards and specifications. This is not a book sale, but an opportunity to give attendees a first-hand look at the range of available titles. A handout listing all books, including information on purchasing options, will be provided. Books will be on display for two days during the Symposium and raffled off to attendees at the reception following the AGM. Authors, publishers, or collectors interested in donating books should contact email@example.com by 1 APRIL. BIRDS-OF-A-FEATHER SESSIONS - SIGNUP TO POST YOUR TOPIC IN ADVANCE Birds-of-a-Feather (BoFs) sessions will be held during the Symposium luncheons (Monday and Tuesday) and on Monday evening. Luncheon BoF sign-ups will be provided each day in the registration area. Specifically on Tuesday during the luncheon, OASIS Board of Directors and TAB members will be available to lead table discussion groups. If you are interesting in submitting a topic in advance for the Tuesday luncheon, please include that topic on your registration form (http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/registration.php) or forward it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are encouraging feedback on issues relating to the Symposium and/or the OASIS organization during this Tuesday luncheon. Evening BoF sign-ups will be held on Monday only in the registration area. If you are interested in hosting an evening BoF, please submit your request to an OASIS staff member in the registration area. A final list of Monday evening BoFs will be posted during the afternoon Symposium break. **MORE LINKS... ~KEYNOTES, PANELS, AND PRESENTATIONS http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/program.php ~OASIS ANNUAL GENERAL MEMBER MEETING (AGM) http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/related_events.php#agm ~OASIS TECHNICAL COMMITTEE MEETING SCHEDULE http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2005/tc_meetings.php ______________________________________________________ This announce list distributes news from OASIS member organizations, which are solely responsible for content.
