Everyone is welcome to join OASIS WS-I and help advance Best Practices for Web services interoperability. The only prerequisite to WS-I participation is membership in OASIS, the international open standards consortium.
How to join
If you already participate in OASIS or are employed by an OASIS member organization, getting involved in WS-I is easy and will incur no additional dues.
If you are not currently an OASIS member, getting involved in WS-I is still easy. OASIS offers a range of membership dues and benefits to enable the broadest possible participation.
- If you are not already employed by an OASIS member organization*...
You may join WS-I by joining OASIS and selecting OASIS WS-I Member Section Supporting Entity on the Membership Agreement. After your organization joins, you and an unlimited number of your co-workers may participate in WS-I and in any OASIS Committees.
- If you are already employed by an OASIS member organization*...
Your employer may elect to become an OASIS WS-I Supporting Entity by having your Primary Representative notify OASIS Member Services. If your employer chooses not to become an OASIS WS-I Supporting Entity, you may still participate in the Member Section as an Observer.
- If your employer is already an OASIS WS-I Supporting Entity...
You may personally participate in WS-I as a "Member" by notifying OASIS Member Services. As a participant in WS-I, you will receive email notifications of WS-I activities and become eligible to serve on the OASIS WS-I Steering Committee. You may also join OASIS Committees affiliated with the WS-I Member Section.
Note: Any OASIS member is free to join a Committee affiliated with WS-I; you do not have to be employed by a WS-I Member Section Supporting Entity to do so.
Cost of membership
OASIS offers a wide range of membership options and dues designed to ensure that all those affected by open standards have a voice in their creation. It costs OASIS members nothing extra to join and participate in the WS-I Member Section.
For more information
The OASIS Membership FAQ contains additional information on joining. If you still have questions, please contact Member Services.
*Individual-level membership is also available for those unable to join through their employers.
