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 Schema. * 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 workshop. -- Paul Biron, Paul Downey, David Ezell, Chris Ferris, Erik Johnson, Philippe Le Hégaret, Ashok Malhotra, Dave Remy, C. M.
