Subject: You Can Help -- we are so close to getting UIMA approved as a standard.


This is our first time and we have 35 of the 44 required votes and 3 days to go. Not bad but not there yet.

Many may vote at the last minute. But you can help now to improve our chances.

Please take a look at the link below and scan all the organizational members.


Reach out to any organizational representative  whom you know personally or  to a colleague in one of the member organizations that you believe should be interested in UIMA as a standard.
Encourage them to  vote yes for UIMA by Feb 28th.

If you are reaching out to a colleague who is NOT the OASIS rep on the above list,  then ask them to contact their OASIS representative and encourage them to vote. In this case give them the name of the OASIS representative.

If you are reaching out to the OASIS representative directly, you can use the email link near the rep's name on the list.

At this point every vote counts, so if you have any contacts at these company's please reach out to them.

You can use this blurb to give them a sense about what UIMA is all about.

UIMA stands for the Unstructured Information Management Architecture. The proposed specification defines a standard for data representations, data transport formats, component classes and service interfaces to support the interoperability and integration of text and multi-modal analytics. UIMA is critical for an increasing number of applications designed to analyze content in text, speech, audio or video to extract application-specific semantics. These applications are becoming essential to every day scientific, business and social computing. They invariably use, reuse and combine independently developed component analytics. UIMA makes it possible to integrate these based on a standard and to use the popular open-source Java (and C++) UIMA framework (http://incubator.apache.org/uima/) to implement and deploy integrated solutions for a wide variety of application domains including: legal, business and government intelligence, human resources, bioinformatics, advanced search and content analysis, the semantic web and many others.

[uima] current ballot status

Hi everyone,
  I just wanted to make sure you are all aware that the ballot is still 9 votes shy as of 11:45pm ET on Wednesday 25 February. You need 44 to pass. I’m not sure if you’ve been campaigning behind the scenes but wanted to make sure you were aware of the status. A reminder notice was sent to all voters on Tuesday morning.
