30-day Public Review for Integrated Collaboration Object Model for Interoperable Collaboration Services V1.0

The OASIS Integrated Collaboration Object Model for Interoperable Collaboration Services (ICOM) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

Integrated Collaboration Object Model (ICOM) for Interoperable Collaboration Services Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
16 March 2011

Specification Overview:

The Integrated Collaboration Object Model (ICOM) for Interoperable Collaboration Services standard defines a framework for integrating a broad range of domain models for collaboration activities in an integrated and interoperable collaboration environment. The framework is intended to enable seamless transitions across collaboration activities. For example, applications can aggregate conversation threads in email with other conversations on the same topic in instant message, over the phone or via real-time conferencing, by discussion threads in community forum, weblog or micro blog, and activity stream of participants from all channels. ICOM encompasses and improves on a range of models which are part of existing standards and technologies. The framework lowers the barrier for independent software vendors and open source communities to integrate collaboration services and to create collaboration tools that offer seamless user experience for diverse collaboration activities with minimal context switching.

Public Review Period:

The public review starts today, 19 May 2011 and ends 18 June 2011.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
