Conduct of Observers at CalConnect Interoperability Test Events
Both Consortium members and non-members may attend a single CalConenct
Interoperability Test Event as observers. Unlike observers at Roundtables,
however, observers at C.I.T.E. events cannot participate in the actual testing
and should remember that they are at the event as observers.
Observers may not participate in any testing function. They will not
communicate with IOP test participants during the event unless specifically
approached by the participants, or by the IOP test manager. During breaks,
communication is open to both participants and observers.
Observers shall not use or view any participant equipment, software, scripts,
or other materials or media, unless granted permission by the owner participants.
Confidentiality and non-disclosure is an important issue that must be taken
seriously by all participants and observers. In particular all information
generated and shared in the course of an IOP test event must remain confidential
except where explicitly revealed in the post-event C.I.T.E. public report generated
by the IOPTEST Technical Committee.
The specifics of this are set out in the
CalConnect Interoperability Test Event Confidentiality Agreement.
