This meeting marked the public release of the specifications of the OAI interoperability architecture. The release represents the fixing of these specifications for a one year period of experimentation. The meeting included an overview of the organizational and historical context of the Open Archives Initiative, a detailed presentation of the OAI interoperability architecture, presentations by alpha testers who experimented with the protocol, and opportunities for break-out groups to facilitate building of communities within the OAI technical framework. A European companion to this meeting was held in Berlin on February 26, 2001. The European meeting is described at http://www.openarchives.org/meetings/Berlin2001/OpenMeeting.html.
