I agree: The OASIS eGov TC is also looking to do a F2F around this date too,
and there are already a number of other events clustering around...

	3 June 2005

	Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements,
accomplishments, and activities for the international standards consortium.

	Mark Your Calendars: OASIS Adoption Forum, London, 17 Oct

	This year, the OASIS Adoption Forum will be held at the Russell
Hotel in London, 17 Oct. All members, as well as the public, are
	encouraged to attend this annual European event, which will explore
open standards issues that profoundly affect government,
	healthcare, and commerce. Chaired by John Borras, CEO of the UK's
Local e-Government Standards Body, the OASIS Adoption Forum will
	deliver insight and updates on work in SOA, Web services, tax,
business process, and localisation. OASIS gratefully acknowledges
	event sponsors, BEA Systems, IBM, Innodata Isogen, SAP, and Sun
Microsystems; their support will provide meeting rooms for TCs on
	18, 19, and 20 Oct. (Space is limited, so TC chairs are advised to
reserve early.) The OASIS Adoption Forum is being held in
	conjunction with the eWorld Government and Healthcare Conference.


	OASIS Board and TAB Elections Underway 

	Eight candidates have come forward to fill five seats on the OASIS
Board of Directors. The OASIS Technical Advisory Board also has
	eight nominations for its four open seats. Elections are underway
now and will remain open until 24 June. All OASIS participants are
	encouraged to review candidates profiles, as well as Board nominees'
responses to member questions, and discuss preferences with
	their Voting Representatives. 


	Public Review of CAP v1.1 Ends 15 July

	All interested parties are encouraged to provide comments on the
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.1 Committee Draft before the
	close of its 60-day public review on 15 July. CAP, developed by the
OASIS Emergency Management TC, enables information exchange to
	advance incident preparedness and response to emergency situations.
Public review from potential users, developers, and stakeholders
	is an important part of the OASIS process to assure interoperability
and quality. 


	Presentations from OASIS Open Standards Day Amsterdam Are Now

	Slides used at the OASIS Open Standards Day, held in Amsterdam, 24
May, have been posted online. The programme featured
	presentations on the latest eGovernment projects as well as on XML
for tax-related information. It provided updates on the Web
	Services Business Process Execution Language (WSBPEL), Web Services
Distributed Management (WSDM) OASIS Standard, Web Services
	Resource Framework (WSRF) and Web Services Notification (WSN)
specifications. The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 and
	its interaction with the related profile adapters in eXtensible
Access Control Markup Language (XACML) and WS-Security were also
	explored, as was the Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS)
specification. A European Justice System's use of the ebXML Messaging OASIS
	Standard provided perspective on real-world deployment of standards.


	Members Discuss XML Education and Evangelism 

	Suggestions on ways OASIS can communicate the mission and purpose of
XML to the world is one topic currently being vetted on the
	OASIS member-discuss list. This unmoderated, open forum gives
Consortium members a place to comment on, solicit input for, and
	exchange ideas regarding topics of general interest to the OASIS
community. Any OASIS member may post to this list; archives are
	publicly accessible.


	OASIS e-Gov TC Elects New Chair

	Harm-Jan van Burg of the Netherlands Tax and Customs Administration
has been unanimously elected to chair the OASIS eGovernment TC.
	He will provide leadership to move the TC forward as a forum for
governments to articulate and coordinate requirements for XML- and
	Web services-based standards.

small-footprint, embeddable databases and enterprise
