OMG Seeking Input on How UML Should Evolve
Interested parties invited to participate in RFI Review
Needham, MA, USA - June 18, 2009 - OMG™ today issued a Call for
Participation in the UML® Futures Roadmap Workshop. Anyone who has or
plans to respond to the Request for Information (RFI) on the Future
Development of UML is invited to participate. Responses to the RFI are
due on August 17, 2009. The Workshop to discuss these responses will be
held immediately preceding the OMG Technical Meeting in San Antonio, TX on
Sunday, September 13, 2009.
The workshop will be a working, not informational, event. The purpose
of this workshop is to provide a forum for RFI responders and other
interested parties to discuss and present their views on the future of
UML. At the end of the workshop, a document capturing the major points of
agreement on the direction of UML will be created to help guide OMG's
Analysis and Design Task Force in future UML development efforts.
Interested participants who have not already responded to the RFI are
invited to submit a detailed, one-page description of their proposed UML
Futures presentation to request a time slot in the workshop. Individuals
or organizations that have already responded to the RFI should reference
their RFI response and request a presentation slot. RFI respondents are
welcome and encouraged to expand on their original responses.
Demonstrations are encouraged.
Submissions should be made to email@example.com
no later than August 17, 2009.
