- It seems that in the era where the vendor community is now dominated by bigger companies, the atmosphere for standards become more friendly.
- For other communities - standards have been critical success factor, e.g. web services.
- Somebody mentioned the immortal Stonbraker's phrase about SQL being "intergalactic data speak", we need the "intergalactic event speak" - and it is not an extension to SQL.
- There are different standardization issues -- event representation, meta-modelling, event processing language; as well as extensions to many existing standards possible.
- The language standardization will be trickiest - due to the variety of languages styles exist, here I think that we'll better start with a language at the PIM (platform independent model) level. In the EPIA book we provided one that can serve as a starting point.

a) Brainstorm and devise an actionable plan for evolving event processing to be a critical technology in a grand challenge that will have major impact on society, as a wide-community effort;
b) Brainstorm and devise and actionable plan for creating a community-agreed document about the value, boundaries, functions, and synergies with other areas and communities.
c) Brainstorm and devise and actionable plan for the evolution of specific event processing standards, and employ/extend existing standards.
There are a lot of follow-ups, conclusion of the Dagstuhl seminar can be found on the seminar's webpage.
More about the document and grand challenge - later.
