CALCONNECT DOCUMENT CD 1204 Type: Report Title: Report on Roundtable XXV Version: 1.0 Date: 2012-10-18 Status: Published Source: N/A
Report on Roundtable XXV, October 3-5, 2012
Roundtable XXV took place on October 3-5, 2012, hosted by Google in Zürich, Switzerland. The event was attended by 26 people from 11 members and 5 non-members. The CalConnect Interoperability Test Event was held immediately prior to the Roundtable on October 1-3. Twenty-two people from 10 members and 2 non-members were present onsite, and four members participated remotely.
The Roundtable was dedicated to technical committee sessions, and informal discussions and networking, with an all-hands Plenary meeting as the last item on Friday afternoon. The Technical Committee sessions were as usual organized sequentially, without competing parallel sessions, as is our standard practice to allow all attendees who wished to be involved in the discussions of each Technical Committee the opportunity to do so.
SPECIAL EVENTSThe Roundtable was structured with all regular TC sessions occurring in the afternoon to facilitate remote participation (in particular from North America) for the TC sessions. Thursday and Friday mornings were used for special symposia and BOFs:
The host session was presented by Fabian Schlup of Google and focused on various aspects of Google Calendar including internal and external APIs.
DOCUMENTS SINCE LAST ROUNDTABLEPublic Review Documents:
The majority of specification work in CalConnect is necessarily focused on work to become internet draft submissions to the IETF and ultimpately be progressed to become RFCs (Proposed Standards), rather than be directly published by CalConnect itself.
UPDATE ON TECHNICAL COMMITTEE WORK AND INITIATIVESRoundtable session summaries and activities and a report on the Interoperability Test Event are published after each CalConnect event as part of the CalConnect Minutes newsletter, to be published shortly. Issues of the newsletter may be found at CalConnect Minutes.
