Abstract

   This document defines a conference event package for tightly coupled
   conferences using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) events
   framework, along with a data format used in notifications for this
   package.  The conference package allows users to subscribe to a
   conference Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).  Notifications are sent
   about changes in the membership of this conference and optionally
   about changes in the state of additional conference components.
