Dear OASIS TC Chairs:

Happy New Year!

We are sending out a final reminder to all our TCs -- to submit at least
one presentation, tutorial, and/or panel session for our annual spring
OASIS Symposium on "eBusiness and Open Standards: Understanding the
Facts, Fiction, and Future", 15-20 April 2006 in San Diego, California.
All TC Members are welcome to submit a proposal for the program.  The
deadline was extended until this Friday - 5 January 2007. Guidelines and
submission details may be found at:

TCs are also encouraged to schedule face-to-face (F2F) meetings in
conjunction with the event.  We have taken the time to evaluate all the
feedback from last year (as well as previous years) and have decided to
waive the meeting fee and adjust our offerings. Details on these
adjustments may be found on the website at:

In addition to all the above, we're planning several special
"member-related" events at the Symposium. One such event will be our
annual "OASIS TC Lightning Rounds". As you know, this is a great
opportunity to educate the 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 should designate one
representative to deliver a short presentation on the work of the TC.
Presentations will be compiled and posted on the OASIS website for
future reference. Similar to last year, we are hoping for approximately
3-4 slides or 2-3 minutes worth of compact status data and pointers per

Standards work is significantly improved by the kind of broad
cross-fertilization that the Symposium facilitates. We do hope you
consider these great opportunity for we want to emphasize how important
co-location and community-building is to our work at OASIS. We had a
great turnout last year and are very hopeful that our co-location option
will be even more positive this year.

As an OASIS Technical Committee Member, your help is needed to:

1. submit a presentation, panel session, and/or tutorial proposal by the
deadline of 5 January

2. discuss the advantages of holding a F2F at the Symposium during your
next TC meeting

3. reserve TC meeting space using the online form
as soon as possible, so space can be allocated

4. and designate a representative to deliver an update on your TC's work
during our annual TC Lightning Round Sessions

Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you all
in San Diego.
