CalConnect works year-round to meet its goals. It holds three events each year that consist of Interoperability Test Events and the main CalConnect Conference. Between conference dates, members of the technical committees meet regularly via conference calls and collaboration tools to work on CalConnect's major projects.
The CalConnect Year
Although CalConnect is not a formal standards body, over the last five years, most of the calendaring standards development and discussion have taken place in CalConnect. We have collaborated and cooperated with the IETF and OASIS on CalDAV, RFC 5545 (iCalendar bis), iSchedule, calendaring web services, XML and JSON representations of iCalendar, timezone services, vCard 4.0 and CardDAV, to list some of our most recent work.
In addition to three regular events a year, from time to time we hold workshops to bring together the CalConnect membership and other leading experts to explore specific technical areas, such as vCard and time zones.
