Subject: FW: [chairs] OASIS Symposium - Call for Participation

I will book us a meeting space.  Perhaps this is our next F2F?

Maybe we can even present our work as a spec?

Comments anyone?

OASIS Symposium: The Meaning of Interoperability 

9-12 May 2005 
Grand Hyatt San Francisco Hotel
San Francisco, California, USA 


Interoperability is one of those terms which everyone understands within
their own particular domain of experience or expertise. Consequently,
the definition of interoperability varies greatly, even within
e-Business or e-Government applications.

The facets of interoperability also differ in importance depending on
whether we look at it from the perspective of a business or government
end-user, of a domain expert in a supply-chain, an application
developer, a standards committee, or a product manager. Yet,
interoperability is undeniably an end-to-end value proposition; failure
to address a single aspect properly may invalidate or delay an entire
deployment, sometimes casting an unfair discredit on related efforts.

With a primary focus on e-Government and e-Business applications, the
OASIS Symposium will investigate all the facets of interoperability,
their dependencies, the enabling technologies, standards and practices,
and opportunities for improvement. The event aims to help practitioners
and designers of e-Business or e-Government systems get a broader, more
aligned understanding of interoperability issues and solutions.

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

	*	standards perspective
	*	business perspective
	*	semantic perspective
	*	contractual perspective
	*	infrastructure and product perspective
	*	testing perspective

Additional details may be found on the event web site:

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


OASIS and the Program Committee invite you to submit a proposal for a
presentation, panel session and/or tutorial that offers insights on the
meaning of interoperability. The Program Committee may adapt or
restructure proposals to ensure an interesting and technically
compelling program.

Presentations should be roughly 30-40 minutes in length, including a
question-and-answer period. All presentations will be chaired by a
member of the Program Committee.

Panel sessions should be roughly 60-75 minutes in length, including a
question and answer period. Proposals for panels should include the
topic, three to four potential panelists (name and/or role) and proposed
format (e.g. Q&A, short presentations, or both). All panel sessions will
be moderated.

Tutorials should be a half-day format (roughly three hours, including a
break). Tutorial proposals should state the intended audience and
learning objectives. 


Please send the following information using the submission Web page:

	*	Full contact details (name, affiliation, email, phone,
postal address) of one presenter who will act as the primary contact for
the presentation or panel discussion

	*	Full list of authors and/or additional presenters, if

	*	Brief biography (one paragraph) for all authors

	*	2000-word maximum extended abstract outlining the
subject, title, and key points of your presentation, panel discussion,
or tutorial. 

Deadline for submission is 20 of December 2005.  All submissions will be
