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


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

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


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 any

* 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.
