WWW9 Workshop - Call for Participation Making the Best Use of XML within the Enterprise
Date: Thu, 17 Feb 2000 12:18:29 -0000 From: Adrian Rivers <adrian.rivers@RIVCOM.COM> To: XML-L@listserv.heanet.ie Subject: WWW9 Workshop - Call for Participation Making the Best Use of XML within the Enterprise
RivCom, OASIS and the W3C UK Office have combined together to organise a one-day Workshop "Making the Best Use of XML within the Enterprise" on 15 May as part of the WWW9 Conference to be held in Amsterdam. We would like to invite applications for participation from people who have an interest in the strategic introduction of XML to user organisations, who would like to join XML leaders from Boeing, DataChannel, ebXML, Flash Creative Management, IBM, NATO, Sun Microsystems and others in a highly participative event. The thinking behind the Workshop is that, while XML is becoming established as a key enabler for Internet-based enterprise information exchange and distributed computing, many user organisations are finding it difficult to know how best to adopt this emerging technology that can play many roles across the whole enterprise.
The goal of the day is to bring together leading figures from the XML world representing user organisations, software vendors, consultancies and standards bodies. This group will seek to identify the technical and cultural issues involved in introducing XML to the enterprise and the options that are open to organisations in addressing these issues. The proceedings of the day will be used as input towards the development of a set of materials which will aim to support organisations setting out to establish clear strategies for the adoption of XML. These materials will be made publicly available and presented for discussion at the XML Europe 2000 conference.
More information about the workshop can be found at http://www.rivcom.com/www9workshop and more information about the WWW9 conference can be found at http://www9.org. I would also be happy to discuss any concerns, or provide further information that may be of use. We look forward to receiving applications from people with a responsibility or interest in the strategic issues relating to the application of XML. I would be happy to address any questions that you may have.
With best wishes,
