Subject: Call for participation: UBL 1.1

Hello UBL community,

With the ratification of UBL 1.0 as an OASIS Standard, work is now
beginning on UBL 1.1.  In this phase, scheduled for completion at
the end of 2005, the emphasis shifts to deployment of 1.0 and
enhancements to an already completed initial specification.  This
transition provides an excellent opportunity for anyone who wishes
to get in at the beginning of what promises to become a
significant web technology.

The following UBL team and subcommittee positions are currently

   TC secretary: takes minutes, keeps attendance records, helps
   maintain the UBL TC web page

   UBL Software Subcommittee (SSC): implementations,
   interoperability, best practices, documentation, internal

   UBL Human Interface Subcommittee (HISC): UBL input forms and
   output formatting

   NDR Team: maintaining and enhancing the UBL Naming and Design

   Code List Team: further developing the ground-breaking UBL code
   list specifications (joint project with NIST eBSC)

   Liaisons: from organizations wishing to work with UBL,
   especially ones that wish their requirements reflected in UBL

   Localization Subcommittees: helping with our existing Chinese,
   Japanese, Korean, and Spanish LSCs, or forming a new one for
   the languages we haven't covered yet

   The UBL TC itself: policy, submission screening and processing,

Face-to-face UBL TC meetings for the coming year include:

   Feb 2005 in Washington, D.C.
   May 2005 in Beijing
   Aug 2005 in Ottawa
   Nov 2005 in Santa Clara

Attendance at the face-to-face meetings is encouraged, but regular
phone conferences make it possible to meaningfully contribute to
the work without traveling.  The TC meets every week in two
two-hour sessions, one intended for members in the U.S. and
Europe, and the other intended for members in the U.S. and
Asia-Pacific.  The "Atlantic" TC call takes place every Wednesday
at 08h00-10h00 in San Francisco (16h00-18h00 in London), and the
"Pacific" TC call takes place every Thursday at 08h30-10h30 in
Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing, and Perth (09h30-11h30 Thursday in
Tokyo and Seoul, 16h30-18h30 Wednesday afternoon in San
Francisco).  The teams and subcommittees hold additional weekly
calls at times designed to accommodate the schedules of their

Participation in OASIS TCs is limited to OASIS members or
employees of OASIS member organizations.  Individual OASIS
memberships are still just USD 250 per year, and organizational
memberships begin at USD 1000 for nonprofits.

If you are an expert in XML, data input/output, EDI, or a
particular business domain, and you wish to join the UBL 1.1
project, please contact me at the address above.

Jon Bosak
Chair, OASIS UBL Technical Committee
