[xml-dev] The ICE (Information and Content Exchange) Authoring Groupinvite s you .......

The ICE (Information and Content Exchange) Authoring Group invites you to
learn about ICE 2.0.

Date: Wednesday, September 26 
Time: 7:30 A.M Continental Breakfast
Place: Marriott Hotel one block from the Moscone Center
Room: Knob Hill B 

For those who are new to this standard, ICE is an XML-based communications
protocol optimized for managing the regular exchange of content and data
among business partners.

The first version of the ICE specification was released in 1998 and has
enjoyed considerable support. An update, ICE 1.1 was also released and it
too has been incorporated into products produced by companies including
Vignette, Kinecta, Interwoven, Oracle, HP, and Active Data Exchange. There
is also an ICE cookbook to assist developers in using ICE. In addition, a
reference implementation toolkit called ICE CUBES is being developed and is
available at www.sourceforge.com <http://www.sourceforge.com/>.

Originally designed for syndication of news networks, ICE is now a vital
technology for value networks and Web portals, as trading partners face the
need to keep one another updated with current information. Syndication using
ICE technology has now become synonymous with managed content interchange
since it addresses the need for automated, reliable, secure distribution and
redistribution of all types of commercial and non commercial content.

Now, armed with the knowledge of required enhancements and aware of a host
of new infrastructure and transport layer options, the Authoring Group has
decided to move to the next major version of the specification.

You are invited to become a part of this process. 

Some of the current plans for ICE 2.0 include: 
 Exploration of ICE-based syndication as a Web Service
 Integration of the latest standards such as XML Schemas, XML Namespaces,
 Elegant metadata implementations including PRISM an RDF
 Well-defined protocol extension mechanism 
 Development of a framework for a public catalog
 New transport layers such as HTTP/S, SMTP, NNTP, and WAP

Join the Authoring Group for breakfast; find out all about the value of ICE
and how you can implement it; and get involved in ICE 2.0
