CCMP: A Novel Standard Protocol for Conference Management in the XCON Framework

This paper presents the design and implementation of CCMP, a conference management protocol currently under standardization within the IETF, conceived at the outset as a lightweight protocol allowing conferencing clients to access and manipulate objects describing a centralized conference. The CCMP is a state-less, XML-based, client-server protocol carrying in its request and response messages conference information in the form of XML documents and fragments conforming to the centralized conferencing data model schema. It represents a powerful means to control basic and advanced conference features such as conference state and capabilities, participants and relative roles and details.
