Dear SOAP Developers,


We are all excited about the great work that is being done to foster
SOAP interoperability. To further help our community achieve this goal,
Microsoft and IBM will host two events where developers can meet both in
person and on the network, to discuss and resolve interoperability
problems. Even if you can't attend the events, you are welcome to
participate via the network.


In order to achieve this important goal, the SOAP community is defining
a scenario to implement full-featured applications building on the SOAP
1.1 and W3C XML specifications. We view it as an important goal to use
these specifications as standards -- that is, to achieve
interoperability by objectively measuring implementation behavior
against the publicly-available specifications, correcting defects in
implementation and thereby reaching confidence that any two
implementations conforming to the specification will interoperate within
the scope of the specification.


The first event will be hosted by IBM and Microsoft in Raleigh, North
Carolina on April 19th and 20th. (Details of the actual room location
will be posted when we know how many people plan on participating.)


The second event, hosted by Microsoft and IBM, is from May 8th - May
10th, during  Net <http://www.key3media.com/interop/lasvegas2001/> World
+ Interop, and will be at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N108. 


All details of these events will be available at: <>   


If you would like to join the direct mailing list for these events,
kindly send email with your contact information to either of the folks
below. No information provided will be made public or shared for any
other purpose without your express permission. All information sent by
direct mail will be posted on the web site as well.


Other companies wishing to participate in sponsorship are welcome to
join us! This is an open process.
