>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.

>The OASIS Plenary and Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at the
>Symposium. This once-a-year event provides a members-only opportunity to
>review and respond to a state-of-the-union address presented by the OASIS
