Bob attended an OpenID/SAML/XRI/Liberty convergence meeting last week; a writeup is at http://www.xmlgrrl.com/blog/archives/2007/01/21/openid-and-saml-a-swirling-nexus/.
Neal (firstname.lastname@example.org) is still taking suggestions for the program for the April 17-19 PKI R&D Workshop; see http://middleware.internet2.edu/pki07/program.html.
The group discussed coordinating work on VOs. Bob suggested that VOs be the topic for the June Advanced CAMP. There was also interest in getting VO coordination on the agenda for the March 28-29 TF-EMC2 meeting. In particular, Leif noted that OMII-Europe (http://www.omii-europe.com/) is planning to use VOMS (http://www.globus.org/grid_software/security/voms.php); the TF-EMC2 meeting could be a good opportunity to coordiate with them. Diego noted that many of the Scandinavians interested in VOs will be coming to the April 17-18 EuroCAMP in Helsinki (http://www.terena.org/activities/eurocamp/april07/).
Scott noted that http://openliberty.org/ is now live.
ITANA (http://www.itana.org/) is now getting support from Internet2, and had its first conference call last week. An initial face-to-face meeting is planned for New York City on May 22 (the day before CSG starts).
