The following is the result of a recent email exchange with David 
Megginson regarding the possibilities for an XForms day or track or 

Basically, a full co-conference sounds like it might be a more costly 
option, both in terms of funding and time for coordination.

However, David presents a number of alternatives, which we could discuss 
on the Wednesday telecon.

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 
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 
be a large vacant room (with projector, etc.) that IDEAlliance could make 
available.  We would promote this event as part of the regular conference 

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