February 1-3 2010
The February 1-3 2010 CalConnect Interoperability Test Events of The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium
will take place just before and in conjunction with Roundtable XVII, hosted by
the University of California at Irvine in Irvine, California.
CalConnect Interoperability Test Events
The events will take place all day (from 0800-1800) on Monday and Tuesday, and from
0800 to 1200 noon on Wednesday. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks at breaks will
be served each day.
This IOP Test Event will include both a "regular" event testing calendaring
servers and desktop clients, and a Mobile Calendaring IOP Test Event primarily
testing synchronization between mobile devices and servers. The testing will be
conducted in parallel. A single registration fee covers both the regular and the
mobile IOP test events; however you may require additional participants to do both.
Testing scenarios at this regular Interoperability Test Event will continue to evolve but at this
point we are planning the following for the "regular" IOP Test Event:
In all cases at least two participating organizations must be interested in testing
a particular area or scenario to form testing pairs.
- iCalendar/iMIP/iTIP testing
- CalDAV testing, especially CalDAV Scheduling and implicit scheduling
- Freebusy Read URL Protocol testing
- CardDAV testing
- Possible preliminary iSchedule testing
For information and schedule for the Mobile Calendaring IOP Test Event going on in parallel,
please see Mobile Calendaring IOP Test Event February 2010.
Please note that you do not need finished or polished code to participate
in the IOP testing; in fact as soon as you have something working at all, testing
against other participants can help debugging and code development,
especially in identifying red herrings and wrong decisions.
Who May Participate or Observe
Any vendor or organization wishing to test a calendaring and
scheduling implementation, or a mobile calendaring server or client, is welcome to participate whether or not
they are a Consortium member. Note that Consortium members
receive a substantial discount on their CalConnect Interoperability Test Event registration
Any vendor or organization wishing to observe the
IOP Test Event is welcome whether or not they are a Consortium member. Note
that an organization, member or not, may only observe one IOP Test Event.
Venue and Logistics

Interoperability Event Scenarios
If you are planning to participate, please contact us to let us know which interoperability event
scenarios you wish to pursue or if you would like to propose a new scenario.
CalConnect will invite all registered participants to two or three conference calls prior
to the event to discuss logistics, testing scenarios, etc.
Co-Located Consortium Roundtable
CalConnect Interoperability Test Event participants who are not Consortium members will not be able to participate in the
other Consortium activities unless their organization is an observer at this Roundtable.
However, a non-member organization
participating in the IOP Test Events can join the
Consortium at the event, become a member immediately,
and be able to participate as a member in the technical committee and
More information including logistics, testing goals and
scenarios will be posted on this page as soon as it is available.
Please check this page frequently for updates.
If you have any question, please contact Dave Thewlis
at the Consortium.
