An open invitation

>This messsage is both a public invitation to the first Java RMI Community
>Meeting, and a public Call for Speaking Proposals.
>The Java RMI Community Meeting
>The Java RMI Community Meeting is an opportunity for RMI users (as well
>the Sun RMI engineers) to get together, to share advanced techniques and
>architectures, and to learn about the future directions and goals of RMI.
>With the emergence of Jini as a serious superstructure built with RMI, and
>with the anticipated additions to Java RMI such as security and custom
>references, it feels like there's a "maturity critical mass" building up
>behind RMI technology. The meeting will be a 2-day meeting of RMI
>developers, for RMI developers, discussing important practical and
>theoretical topics of this maturing technology.
>The content chairpersons are Sun's Ann Wollrath and DevelopMentor's Stu
>Halloway. They will be selecting the topics to be presented. Mark Hodapp,
>the RMI engineering manager, and 2 or 3 more RMI engineers will be
>attending and/or speaking. Rickard Oberg has indicated that he will speak
>and plans to attend. Ted Neward from DevelopMentor and myself (Brian Maso)
>will also be there, as well as may other people who's names you will
>recognize from the RMI community. I invite anyone with a serious interest
>in Java RMI to attend, learn stuff and to rub elbows with your peers.
>The first Java RMI Community Meeting will be the third week of March,
>2001, in the L.A./Orange County area. Exact dates (either 19th-20th or
>22nd-23d) and the exact venue will be announced shortly. The registration
>fee is being kept deliberately low - probably about US$300.00 - because
>the meeting is not primarily a money-making venture. Limited space is
>being reserved for no more than 300 attendees. A registration page and
>website will be available soon. (If you want to guarantee your space
>immediately, please e-mail directly to email@example.com.)
>Please address any further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
>Questions will be answered as promptly as possible.
>Call for Speaking Proposals
>You are also invited to submit speaking proposals to be presented along
>with the speakers/topics already mentioned above. There is room for 10-15
>talks of length 60-90 minutes. The RMI community is interested in hearing
>what you have to say about your experience with/design ideas
>for/limitations of RMI. Sample topics include: RMI internals and
>protocols; design and implementation techniques; developing, debugging and
>profiling RMI applciations; and using RMI or RMI-based tools in an
>enterprise system, which basically includes any techniques targeted toward
>one of the 5 cardinal enterprise system properties: security,
>maintainability, reliability, availability and scalability.
>Ann Wollrath and Stu Halloway will be selecting from amongst the
>proposals. Please send any proposals, including abstract (500 words or
>less) and a speaker bio to email@example.com. Plain text,
>HTML, StarOffice, PDF and MS Word are all acceptable formats.
>1-Day RMI University
>You may have the opportunity to attend a 1-day "RMI University" prior to
>the Java RMI Community Meeting. Provided there is sufficient interest, a
>1-day RMI University will be held one day prior to the Java RMI Community
>Meeting. The RMI University is an intensive tutorial and review of RMI,
>appropriate for Java developers who are interested in RMI but who have not
>had wide-ranging experience with this technology. Though not an integral
>part of the Java RMI Community Meeting, the RMI University will be held
>the same location as the Community Meeting and will give new- to
>intermediate-level RMI developers a large "boost" in technical proficiency
>and understanding, and will make the advanced topics discussed during the
>following 2 days at the Java RMI Community Meeting much more accessible.
>If there is sufficient interest, the RMI University will be presented by
>the very capable instructors of DevelopMentor (http://www.develop.com).
>If you are interested in the 1-day RMI University, please send e-mail to
>firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register
>your interest. Note that whether or not the RMI University will be
>presented is contingent upon sufficient attendance.
>The Java RMI Community Meeting is brought to you by Blumenfeld & Maso,
>Inc., a small software consulting company dedicated to Java technology.
>Blumenfeld & Maso is bringing you this community meeting because,
>basically, no one else has stepped forward to do it. This meeting is
>technically not endorsed by Sun or any other entity. Please remember that
>Java is a trademark of Sun.
