           JSCalendar: A JSON representation of calendar data
                      draft-jenkins-jscalendar-01

Abstract

   This specification defines a JSON representation of calendar data
   that can be used for storage and data exchange in a calendaring and
   scheduling environment.  It aims to be an alternative to the widely
   deployed iCalendar data format and to be unambiguous, extendable and
   simple to process.
