Subject: New OASIS Discussion List: bws-discuss

OASIS members have requested that we open a new discussion list, regarding a possible new OASIS Biometric Web Services TC. The proposal conforms to our rules and is set forth below. Standards always are improved by broad participation. OASIS encourages open discussions about possible new TCs, by offering a dedicated e-mail list for 90 days, upon member request. The address of this list will be:


Anyone, including OASIS members and non-members, may subscribe to this list in order to discuss the merits and possibility of the proposed project.  The list is now open, and can be joined by sending a message to:

bws-discuss-subscribe@lists.oasis-open.org. [1]

The discussion list is governed by Section 2.1 of the OASIS TC Process [2], and may last up to 90 days.  Typically, participants in the list will determine whether there is sufficient interest to form an OASIS TC, and then collaborate on a draft TC charter for submission. Only subscribers to the list will have the ability to post to it. If you do not wish to subscribe, but would like to monitor the discussion, archives of the list will be visible at [3].

Please feel free to forward this announcement to any other appropriate lists. OASIS is an open standards organization, and welcomes your feedback. We look forward to assisting parties interested in joining the community of implementers, technologists, academics and end-users contributing to open standardization for e-business and information exchange.

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.

OASIS TC Discussion List Proposal (BWS-discuss)

This document is a proposal for the creation of a discussion list for evaluating the interest in proposing a new OASIS TC for biometric web services (BWS).

The name of the discussion list should be bws-discuss.

Statement of Scope
The purpose of the TC under consideration is to define, enhance, and maintain open standards that facilitate the use of biometrics and biometric operations over a services oriented architecture, such as web services. At its inception, the TC will specifically target web services for biometric devices—a specification describing a suite of sensor- and modality-agnostic ‘low-level’ acquisition operations (e.g., sensor initialization, sensor configuration, data capture, data transfer.)
