IRVING, Texas - Clasma Events Inc. announced that the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) will develop and host a standards track for the BuilConn Europe and M2M Expo and Conference Europe being held Nov. 8-10, at the Amsterdam RAI.

The OASIS standards track is provided in response to the significant trend of increasing use on IT standards by the intelligent buildings industry. Originally established at the inaugural BuilConn, the OASIS oBIX (Open Building Information Xchange) Technical Committee is among several industry initiatives that are developing standards for XML and Web services, technologies critical to the advancement of the buildings industry.

OASIS will lend its expertise to the two events by developing a one-day track dedicated to the development of standards for enabling technologies such as XML and Web services. The presentations will approach the subject from a technology and business development point of view.

"Clasma Events is very pleased that OASIS will be a major contributor to what are now established events for the buildings and M2M industries," said Anto Budiardjo, BuilConn Europe and M2M Expo and Conference organizer.

"More and more we're seeing buildings and smart devices becoming an integral part of the information architecture within today's enterprises," Patrick Ganon, OASIS president and CEO, said. "The use of standards promotes industry growth, and we're pleased to be advancing interoperability through collaboration and consensus."
