A two-day workshop on Open Information Interchange (OII) standards in Europe is to be organized in the framework of the Community's programme for the establishment of an internal information services market (IMPACT). The workshop, one of a number of activities undertaken in the context of IMPACT to promote the development of OII, will take place in Luxembourg on 2-3 December 1993.

Intended as a follow-up to a successful OII workshop held in June 1991, the first half-day of the event will provide a progress report on IMPACT's ongoing OII activities. These include an image standards study, a reference model study, a pilot information service, and the multimedia/hypermedia workshop. The second half of the day will cover intellectual property rights, management services, what data will be required and how data will be connected to documents.

The second day will be devoted to the standardization of DTD (Document Type Descriptions) for use in SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) environments to aid the interchange of electronic SGML/ODA (Office Document Architecture) interworking, the current state of international DTD standards for publishing, standards for specific DTD fragments such as tables and mathematical notation, the possibility of extending the Text Encoding initiative to business information, and the use off SGML coding in conjunction with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

In addition, a forum for publishers and document designers will provide a valuable opportunity to discuss the issues of attaching intellectual property management information to business information and design issues in the use of SGML.
