Subject: FW: Joint SE DSIG/ADTF Meeting in Montreal on August 26

Importance: High
We will be holding a joint meeting with the ADTF on Thursday morning, August 26 at the OMG Technical Meeting in Montreal.  The purpose of the meeting will be to evaluate the SysML Revised Submission. The SysML submission will be posted to the OMG Web Site on August 2 for your review. The presentation to the ADTF will be approximately a 2 hours. Additional information on SysML can be found at their public site at Logistics and registration information for the OMG meeting is included below.
This represents a critcial milestone in the SE DSIG effort, which held its kickoff meeting in Toronto on September 13, 2001. The UML for SE RFP was issued March 28, 2003 and can be found from the SE DSIG site at . SysML Partners was formed in May 2003 to respond to the RFP. The Partners includes a diverse team iof vendors, end users, and government representatives, that have been working at an intense pace throughout the last 1 year and 4 months. 
The SysML specification is intended to serve the needs of the systems engineering community. There have been a series of reviews and informational sessions to get stakeholder feedback throughout the process. Clearly, the initial joint effort between INCOSE, the ISO AP-233 WG, and the SE DSIG was critcial to establishing an agreed upon and comrehensive set of requirements in the UML for SE RFP that provided a solid foundation for the follow-on effort. The initial SysML approach was presented to the OMG on October 27, 2003. This was followed by the initial submission on February 4, 2004. There have been two technical reviews hosted by INCOSE MDSD Cochairs (Dave Oliver and Mike Dickerson) and AP-233 Chair (JIm U'Ren). The first was a 2 day intensive review at the INCOSE International Workshop on January 25 - 26, 2004 in Portland Oregon and the follow-up review was on May 25, 2004 in Pasadena. In addition, we held informational sessions on SysML at the SE DSIG meeting in St Louis on April 27 and another session at the INCOSE Sysmposium on June 21, 2004. The reviews and informational sessions have provided some excellent feedback which the Partnership has tried hard to address. The SE community has generallyprovided a high level of interest and enthusiasm for SysML and the need for a robust systems modeling language.
We look forward to seeing you in Montreal. The following meeting in Washington DC will be held in conjunction with the Mid Atlantic Regional Conference of INCOSE and should also be a very exciting event. We hope that SysML will be well along in the adoption process by that time, and are looking forward to the tool vendor implementations to support our needs. At the DC meeting, we will also lay out the follow-on plans for SysML evolution. Thanks for your interest and participation.
