[Micronet] Calendar scheduling between UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley Lab to stop July 31
On Saturday, July 31, 2010, the cross-campus scheduling link between
the UC Berkeley CalAgenda service and the Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory (LBNL) Calendar System, which has been in operation since
October 2007, will be discontinued.
LBNL is migrating its calendar system from Oracle Calendar to Google
Calendar during the weekend of July 31, 2010. Google Calendar is not
interoperable with CalAgenda so scheduling between the two systems
will not be possible.
On July 31, all instances of LBNL data will permanently disappear from
CalAgenda. This includes all meetings scheduled by LBNL people and the
inclusion of LBNL attendees in meetings scheduled by UC Berkeley people.
Actions for CalAgenda users who schedule with LBNL
• Do not schedule meetings with users on LBNL's Calendar System
beyond July 31, as these meetings will not be migrated over to LBNL's
Google Calendar implementation.
• Review your calendar for any future meetings created by someone at
LBNL. Re-create these meetings within CalAgenda to ensure that they
continue on your calendar.
• If you have invited LBNL people to meetings beyond July 31, contact
these invitees to ensure that they schedule them separately in their
new calendar system.
Future collaboration possibilities
UC Berkeley will implement the iSchedule protocol as part of its next
generation CalAgenda deployment later this year. iSchedule is an open
standards–based protocol for real-time server-to-server scheduling
between separate calendaring systems.
If Google chooses to support iSchedule in the future, we will be able
to resume cross-campus scheduling between UC Berkeley and LBNL. Until
that time, we hope to offer a limited form of calendar sharing via
iCalendar URL subscriptions.
iSchedule has been gaining significant traction within the calendaring
standardization community, and we expect to be able to offer real-time
scheduling between UC Berkeley and other campuses and organizations
that deploy calendar systems that implement open standards.
