Here is some good news about XForms and the upcoming XML conference.

There are points of discussion of course, so we will talk about this on 
tomorrow's telecon.

RE: XForms and XML Conference






John,
 
We are pleased you will take the opportunity to do an XForms session at 
XML 2007.  You mentioned holding your session on December 4th; however, we 
now have a conflict on that evening that might limit attendance.  Can you 
do December 3rd?
 
We will hold one of our larger rooms for the event.  We can talk about 
room set up and audio-visual at a later date. 
 
We?d like to have this as part of the program so could you send at your 
earliest convenience:
 
1.      Promotion copy of 8 to 10 sentences about the program
2.      List the speakers
3.      Send a logo that you use for XForms
 
I think that should get us started.
 
Look forward to working with you.
 
David Steinhardt
IDEAlliance

Hi Dave, 

I've discussed the possibilities with the Forms WG, and we are quite 
interested in proceeding with option #2, to hold an XForms evening on Dec. 
4.   

Could you please let me know what are the next steps that we would need to 
perform to move forward with that option? 

Thank you,

Thanks for getting back in touch, John, and apologies for not responding 
sooner.  We're still trying to finalize the conference format, but for now 

here are a few options off the top of my head:

1. Hold an XForms Day on Sunday 2 December, the day before the conference 
begins, at the same location.  I don't know that the business arrangements 

(if any) would be -- that's up the David Steinhardt -- but we could 
certainly promote the two together as a package, and I'm sure that the 
hotel 
would extend any room discounts for attendees.

2. Hold an XForms evening on Monday 3 December or Tuesday 4 December.  You 

would be competing against other evening activities, but there should 
still 
be a large vacant room (with projector, etc.) that IDEAlliance could make 
available.  We would promote this event as part of the regular conference 
program.

3. Offer XForms tutorials/overviews during our (tentative) 
teaching/learning 
afternoon on Wednesday 5 December (the regular program ends at noon). 
Again, you'd be competing against other activities, but again, you would 
be 
part of the main program.

Please let us know if any of this sounds useful.  If you're interested in 
something bigger, more along the lines of a full co-conference, it would 
be 
best to talk to David Steinhardt directly about business requirements, 
funding, etc.  In addition to these options, we will, of course, welcome 
XForms submissions for the main program, especially in the Web and 
Enterprise tracks.


Thanks, and all the best,


David
