ICOM for Interoperable Collaboration Services V1.0 Committee Specification 01 published

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS Integrated Collaboration Object Model for Interoperable Collaboration Services (ICOM) TC [1]:

Integrated Collaboration Object Model (ICOM) for Interoperable Collaboration Services Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
31 January 2013

Overview:

The Integrated Collaboration Object Model (ICOM) for Interoperable Collaboration Services defines a framework for integrating a broad range of domain models for collaboration activities in an integrated and interoperable collaboration environment.

The framework is not intended to prescribe how applications or services conforming to its model implement, store, or transport the data for objects. It is intended as a basis for integrating a broad range of collaboration objects to enable seamless transitions across collaboration activities. This enables applications to maintain a complete thread of conversations across multiple collaboration activities. The model integrates a broad range of collaboration activities, by encompassing and improving on a range of models which are part of existing standards and technologies. The model is modular to allow extensibility. The core concepts, metadata concepts, and their relations are included in the Core, while the specific concepts and relations for each area of collaboration activities are defined in separate extension modules
