therre were some technical difficulties with getting it up today (sorry). 

Title: F2F #1 of the OASIS Security Services TC

F2F #1 of the OASIS Security Services TC

The OASIS Security Services TC (SSTC) will hold its first face-to-face meeting from 9:00am to 5:00pm ET on 2 March 2001 at the Sun Microsystems campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, USA.

Send inquiries to Eve Maler (phone +1 781 442 3190, mobile +1 781 883 5917), SSTC chair and meeting host.

Last revised 13 February 2001.

Attendance and Registration

Voting members, prospective members, and other observers (individual OASIS members and members of OASIS-member organizations) may attend; however, we are trying to keep participation numbers manageable, and do not expect many others besides voting members to attend.

The deadline for registration is Monday, 26 February so that we can arrange for enough space and food. TC members will have received an Evite invitation by email. If you are not a TC member and you would like to attend, please contact the host.

This is an official meeting of the SSTC; attendance will be noted and will count towards good standing.


The meeting will be held at:

Martha's Vineyard conference room
Sun Microsystems
1 Network Drive (driving directions, MapBlast map)
Burlington, MA 01803 USA

We're such a large group that we will probably overflow Visitor Parking; if this happens, exit Visitor Parking, turn left, and turn left again to park near Building 1, then take the sidewalk up the short hill towards the central lobby.

If you're staying in Cambridge because of the W3C event that week, note that a cab ride to Burlington will cost approximately $50, including tip. If you have an evening flight on Friday, plan about an hour for cab rides back to Logan Airport during rush hour (though it may take less time because it's nominally against the flow).

Sun will be providing continental breakfast, lunch, and afternoon coffee. If you have food restrictions: Please note them in the comments section of the Evite invitation or contact the host.

Telephones are available, but Martha's Vineyard does not have network connections or analog lines for computer access. We will have a computer projector at our disposal. If you need photocopies made for the meeting, please make every effort to arrange this with the host beforehand; however, photocopying services will also be available that day.


There are three very good hotel choices nearby, all offering Sun corporate rates. Don't be concerned that they are located in three different towns; they're all within a couple of miles of the campus. The Wyndham and Renaissance properties are newer and smaller than the Marriott. They all have pools and workout facilities.
