John -- please find attached my Interest Statement for presenting at the
XForms Evening Event at XML 2007...Thanks, Charlie

-----------------

We  propose  a  programming  model  for  composing  and controlling Web 2.0
documents  based  on  the  Model-View-Controller  design of XForms. Today’s
mash-up code is tightly coupled; component interaction logic is intertwined
with  interaction  logic typically through scripting.  The current approach
suffers  from  two  disadvantages:  it  inhibits  loose-coupling and reuse.
Loose-coupling  offers  separation of concerns; it allows different authors
to  combine  various  components they might not have authored themselves in
their own application. Reuse is a side-effect of proper encapsulation; when
a  component  is  insulated  through  a well-defined API, it can be re-used
across   multiple  applications.   The  approach  we  describe  to  mash-up
authoring  is  based on a recursive composition model that leverages XForms
and  allows  the  creation of data driven XML Application Components hereon
referred  to  as XACs.  The architecture of these components satisfies four
requirements  that  we  hypothesize are essential for simplifying mash-ups:
componentization,  composition,  customization  and  reuse.  This talk will
describe  and  demonstrate  this  programming model highlighting as well an
XML-based  cross-component  controller called State Chart XML (SCXML) under
development in the Voice Browser Working Group in the W3C.

A further clarification to this call for interest:

I meant to say please use "Reply All" so that the proposals may be accessed
by the Forms WG for the purpose of evaluation and selection.

I received one so far, to be forwarded soon, which alerted me to the fact
that it had not been received  by the list.

The organizers of the XML 2007 conference (IdeaAlliance) have graciously
agreed to add a "featured evening event" on XForms to the official program.


On behalf of the W3C Forms working group, and I am making the arrangements
for this event, which is anticipated to be scheduled on Monday Dec. 3rd
from 7:30-9:30.

The theme of this special session is "XForms: End to End XML".  There will
be a 30 minute keynote (speaker to be announced at a later time), and there
are also six slots for a 15-minute presentation (12 minutes to present plus
3 minutes for questions and speaker switching).

This call for interest statements pertains to the six 15 minute speaking
slots.  We request a statement of interest in presenting from members of
the Forms community no later than Friday, July 20, 2007.  The statement
should include a proposed title and a paragraph describing the proposed
content of the talk.  Statements of interest should be sent in response to
this email.

Talks are desired that stress the business/customer impact of XForms in
addition to showing important technical advancements for XForms.  Proposals
for talks that include a software demonstration will be weighted more
heavily.  The topic of "End to End XML" can be interpreted in a fairly
broad manner in your proposal.  For example, presentations could deal with
various aspects in the lifecycle of a forms application, such as design
time, run-time behaviors, interactions with the server-side, or experiences
with deployment on mobile devices and current browsers.  Presentations
could discuss issues related to particular vertical industries, such as
government, financial, insurance, supply chain/manufacturing, and
healthcare.  Many further possibilities exist, as the main criteria used in
selection will be strength of business impact, technical innovation or
both.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
