Did you see the CFP just a few days prior?
  Call for Participantion -- Second Calconnect Interop - 11-12 January
2005 - Seattle, Washington 
  David C. Thewlis (Thursday, 2 December)
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-calendar/2004Dec/0000.html

I was considering going to, but couldn't spare the travel time.
Matt May is based in Seattle, though, and MIT is a member, so he's
going as my eyes/ears, to some parts of the meeting, anyway.

Actually, it is.

see http://www.calconnect.org/tc-calsify.html


An interesting thing about the calconnect consortium is they're
in the "we don't do standards" mode that W3C passed thru a while
ago, according to their IPR policy:

  "The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium does not intend to be a
standards-setting organization."
  -- http://www.calconnect.org/iprpolicy.html


But if this TC charter isn't about standardization, I dunno what is:

"The goal of the Recurr Technical Committee is to define what a
recurring meeting is, map out how the participating vendors have
implemented recurrances, and see if we can draw from this exercise a
common ground for interoperability of recurrances across all vendors.
This recommendation will then be presented to the Calendaring and
Scheduling Consortium in April 2005."
