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,
John M. Boyer, Ph.D.
