>Subject: Notif: NOTIFY BOF at Chicago IETF
>>A birds-of-a-feather (BOF) meeting will be held at the Chicago Internet
>Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting on the topic of Internet event
>notifications. At present, I do not yet know scheduling details for the
>BOF, but I do know that a BOF slot has been reserved. I'll email this list
>once I have final details.
>>Within the IETF, a BOF meeting such as this is a typical precursor to the
>formation of a working group to develop an interoperability standard.
>>Details on the Chicago IETF meeting, including how to register, can be found
>>http://www.ietf.org/meetings/IETF-42.html>>A brief desription, and proposed agenda for the BOF are given below.
>>>Event Notification Service BOF
>>There appears to be significant interest in Internet-scale event
>notifications. Event notifications are useful in many domains, including
>web authoring, instant messaging, buddy lists, workflow, and internet
>printing. While efforts are well underway to develop a standard protocol
>for instant messaging and personal presence, requirements for notification
>services in other domains suggest the need for development of an
>interoperable protocol for the registration, initiation, and transport of
>Internet event notifications.
>>This BOF aims to develop a better understanding among the different
>communities of interest, elicit scenarios of use for an event notification
>service, refine requirements for an event notification service, and
>enumerate the application domains that will benefit from an event
>notification service, and discussion of how standardization will occur in
>this area. The BOF will also contain a report from the recent Workshop on
>Internet Scale Event Notifications (WISEN), held in mid-July.
