Earlier in June 2007, the XML-aligned Service Modeling Language (SML) Working Group, with oversight from the World-Wide-Web Consortium (W3C), held their first face-to-face meeting. The location of this meeting was the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington, USA. A meeting host was Mr. Pratul Dublish, who is one of the co-chairs of the SML WG.

Pratul has blogged about this first Face-to-Face meeting, here: http://blogs.technet.com/pratul

In addition to Pratul's blog, a rich set of details on the SML WG discussions, meeting plans, and tracklist of activities and work items can be found on the W3C Public site for the SML WG: http://www.w3.org/XML/SML/

Finally, Pratul has posted a link to his presentation from this June SML WG Face-to-Face meeting, with details on SML Language, sample coding, Schematron details, XPATH inter-document referencing, and model validation: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sml/2007Jun/att-0007/SML-_F2F-061107.pdf
