Given the dependency of OAI on XML Schema, I hope this will be
of interest to many here. Lobbying for what the OAI community
needs from Schema will be much welcome.

This workshop will gather concrete reports of user experience with
XML Schema 1.0, and examine the full range of usability,
implementation, and interoperability problems around the
specification and its test suite. Topics of discussion include, but
are not limited to, the use of XML Schema in vocabulary design, Web
Services description and toolkits, XHTML, XML Query, and XML Schema
Expected participants include schema authors, authors or users of
public or standard schemas, developers and vendors of schema-aware
code generators, schema-aware middleware, schema validators, or
other schema-related software, and the W3C XML Schema Working Group.
Desired outcomes of the workshop include:
* A plan of action for addressing existing interoperability issues
connected with XML Schema 1.0.
* A plan of action for addressing existing problems with XML Schema
1.0 through errata and clarifications.
Attendees are encouraged to bring (or provide in advance, in their
user experience reports):
* Use cases and proposed guidelines to address them using XML
* Tests (or real schemas) with interoperability issues, whether the
issues are due to a lack of clarity of the XML Schema
specification or to discrepancies in the implementations.
We look forward to your participation and contributions to this
