DISA's E-Business and Internet Conference & Exhibition Features First 
Demonstration in 2001 of New ebXML Specifications
March 7-9, 2001 Moscone Convention Center San Francisco

Alexandria, Va., February 14, 2001 - The 14th annual E-Business and 
Internet Conference & Exhibition, sponsored by the Data Interchange 
Standards Association (DISA), features a live demonstration of the emerging 
Electronic Business Extensible Markup Language (ebXML) specifications on 
March 8. This demonstration of ebXML is the first of its kind this year and 
shows a simulated supply chain, involving small-to-midsize companies, 
sending and receiving messages in standard formats.

The ebXML demo that takes place at the DISA show involves business content 
never before exchanged in any previous ebXML tests. The business content in 
the messages is based on specifications of the Papinet Consortium, an 
international paper and printing group developing business messages based 
on XML, and made available from the Graphic Communications Association.

Several companies take part in the ebXML demonstration including Extol 
Inc., Viquity Corp., and TIE Commerce. The demo, part of a larger session 
on ebXML (Thursday, March 8 at 8:30 am), features presentations by ebXML 
project team leaders Rachel Foerster and Rik Drummond, and is led by David 
Webber of XML Global Technologies.

In the demonstration, a small printing company orders paper for a print 
job, gets confirmation of the order from a local wholesaler, receives a 
ship notice when the shipment is dispatched, and then sends a receipt upon 
delivery. The wholesaler - using a pre-arranged inventory management scheme 
with a paper mill - gets its stock replaced and documented through another 
set of electronic messages. Most printing companies and paper wholesalers 
today cannot afford to use electronic business for inventory control, which 
ebXML can now make available.

The DISA conference also features a keynote address by Kevin Kail, 
President of XML Solutions, an Executive Forum of industry leaders, panel 
of top industry analysts, 64 concurrent track sessions featuring the latest 
developments and applications in business data exchange, and 10 
pre-conference tutorials. The conference also features the presentation of 
the first Electronic Business Enterprise (EBE) Award and this year's Edward 
A. Guilbert Award. See http://www.disa.org/conference/annual_conf/index.htm 
for more details and online registration.

The ebXML initiative will soon complete work on a set of specifications 
that together enable a modular electronic business framework where 
enterprises of any size and in any geographical location can meet and 
conduct business with each other through the exchange of XML-based 
messages. EbXML is a joint initiative of the United Nations Centre for 
Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) and Organization for 
the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), developed with 
global participation for global usage.

DISA, the accredited standards community for e-business, is home for the 
development of cross-industry e-business standards that provide the 
foundation enabling individuals and organizations to participate in global 
e-business. Driving an array of e-business initiatives, DISA provides
