OASIS Symposium and OpenDocument Workshop

OASIS will have its annual Symposium April 15th-17th in San Diego, with the theme, “eBusiness and Open Standards: Understanding the Facts, Fiction, and Future”. It should be noted that this is not a real symposium, where guests recline in couches, drink wine and discuss philosophy to the accompaniment of flute-girls. On the other hand, it will have a lot of ODF, which is almost as good.

Bob Sutor will give the opening keynote. Scott Hudson will give a talk on, “DocTape: A Document Standards Interoperability Framework for DocBook, DITA, ODF and more!”. I’ll be joining a panel on Tuesday looking at ODF Interoperability and related topics. And Wednesday will be a half-day Workshop on ODF, with presentations on adoption, programmability, accessibility, interoperability and future directions.

Then back home on Thursday, my birthday. This gives my wife the rare opportunity to get a large present into the house without me noticing. Hint, hint…
