Subject: [members] OASIS Symposium - Call for Participation

Presentation, tutorial, and panel session proposals are now being accepted online at: http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2006/call_for_participation.php


Proposal deadline:   20 December 2005  




9-12 MAY 2006



The OASIS Symposium is an annual event organized by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS, www.oasis-open.org).  Everyone is invited (members and non-members) to join OASIS in San Francisco to discuss the Meaning of Interoperability. This event is where leading experts will be brought together to share their understanding and experience on how to make e-Government and e-Business work better. 




OASIS invites proposals for presentations, panel sessions and tutorials on topics related to one or more aspect of interoperability, including but not limited to:

·         The standards perspective

·         The business perspective

·         The semantic perspective

·         The contractual perspective

·         The infrastructure and product perspective

·         The testing perspective

Full details on the different perspectives may be found at: http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2006/call_for_participation.php


OASIS also invites tutorials on topics not necessarily directly related to the Symposium theme.

Several sponsorship opportunities are available at this year’s Symposium.  OASIS relies on its event sponsorship to provide funding necessary to maintain affordable meeting fees, ensuring the widest possible level of participation.  OASIS Event Sponsors also underwrite the cost of OASIS Technical Committee meetings, allowing members to collaborate face-to-face and Committees to interact with one another.  We are offering again this year - two types of sponsorship, including a Dual Event Sponsorship and an Event Reception Sponsorship.  Details including the benefits for each sponsorship package may be found at: http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2006/sponsorship.php.


If you are able to support OASIS as a Sponsor, please contact Peter Roden – peter.roden@oasis-open.org or complete the online OASIS Event Sponsorship Request Form - http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2006/sponsorship.php




OASIS Technical Committee Meetings

OASIS Technical Committees are invited to hold face-to-face meetings in conjunction with the OASIS Symposium. OASIS will provide rooms at the hotel on 10, 11, and 12 of May for TC meetings. In order to assure availability, TC Chairs must reserve their space as soon as possible using the online meeting space reservation form found at:  http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium_2006/tc_meetings.php


OASIS Annual General Member Meeting (AGM)

The OASIS Annual General Member Meeting (AGM) will be held at the Symposium. This once-a-year event provides a members-only opportunity to review and respond to a state-of-the-union address presented by the OASIS Board of Directors. The AGM will be followed by an evening reception offering the perfect place to network with OASIS members, directors, and staff. 


OASIS TC Lightning Rounds

The OASIS Symposium will again feature an overview of the TCs, by the TCs. It promises to be a great opportunity to learn what the TCs are accomplishing, find out the status of related work, provide input, identify areas for cross-TC communication, and build support. Each OASIS Committee will be asked to designate one representative to deliver a two-three minute presentation on its work. Slides will be compiled and posted on the OASIS site following the event.


Symposium Book Table

There is a growing body of books that feature technical and executive-level information on OASIS Standards and specifications. The Symposium Book Table will showcase these books at a display in the registration area. 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 during the Symposium and raffled off to attendees at the reception.  Authors, publishers, or collectors interested in donating books should contact events@oasis-open.org by 10 April 2006.
