CalConnect Interoperability Test Event
Google, Zürich, Switzerland
The October 1-3 2012 CalConnect Interoperability Test Event
will take place just before and in conjunction with Roundtable XXV, hosted by
Google, in Zurich, Switzerland.
The event will take place all day (from 0830-1800) on Monday and Tuesday, and from
0830 to 1200 noon on Wednesday. Lunch and Morning and afternoon refreshments will
be served each day. All participants and observers are invited to a dinner Monday evening.

as useful as possible for members and non-members. To this end we
welcome suggestions from interested parties on what they might want to test, and with
What Will Be Tested At This Event
As of 15 June 2012 the following areas will be tested:
This list will be updated as additional testing areas are identified and requested by two or more testing organizations.
The following areas may also be tested if two or more testing organizations express interest:
- CalDAV Access
- CalDAV Calendar Sharing and Notifications
- CalDAV Scheduling (including implicit scheduling)
- iMIP and iMIP Gateways
- Timezone Service Protocol and Timezones by Reference
In all cases at least two participating organizations must be interested in testing
a particular area or scenario to form testing pairs.
- Web Services (CalWS REST and CalWS SOAP)
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
