NASA joins CalConnect

I’m delighted to announce that NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has joined The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium.

A two-fer in June – attend CalConnect, then WWDC

Apple’s WorldWide Developers’ Conference was just set for the second week of June (8-12), the week following CalConnect XV at Oracle in Redwood Shores. A grand chance to combine two trips and take a holiday weekend in-between in the Bay Area!

Planned outage for CalConnect server Thursday March 26

We are planning for a 4-hour outage Thursday evening March 26 from 19:00-23:00 Eastern Time. That will be 16:00-20:00 Pacific Time and 23:00-03:00 UTC. We want to be sure we are leaving enough time for any unforeseen problems and still be functional Friday morning, and the necessary talent isn’t available over the weekend.

During the outage period, none of the CalConnect services will be available including mailing lists – any e-mails to the lists will queue up until the new server is up.

Registration is open for CalConnect XV, June 1-5, 2009

Registration is now open for CalConnect XV comprised of Roundtable XV and a CalConnect Interoperability Test Event, hosted by Oracle in Redwood Shores, California, on June 1-5, 2009.

Please see CalConnect XV for logistics information and links to registration for the Roundtable and for the CalConnect Interoperability Test Event. We will meet in the Oracle Conference Center at 350 Oracle Parkway, Redwood Shores.

If you are planning on participating in the CalConnect Interoperability Test Event, it begins with breakfast on Monday morning the 1st at 08:00 and runs to noon on Wednesday the 3rd. As usual the Roundtable will begin with lunch at 12:30 on Wednesday the 3rd and run until early Friday afternoon the 5th.

A general schedule of events is provided on the logistics page; the final schedule of TC sessions, together with topical agendas, will be available by mid-May.

See you at Oracle in June!

CalConnect XV (IOP Test Event and Roundtable) will be hosted by Oracle Corporation on June 1-5, 2009, at Oracle’s HQ in Redwood Shores, California. We hope to open registration early, but in any case by the beginning of April.
