Kelvin Lawrence

Based in Austin, Texas, Kelvin Lawrence is currently IBM CTO of Emerging Internet Software Standards. He is also an IBM Distinguished Engineer and a member of the IBM Academy of Technology. He is currently focused on the advancement, standardization and deployment of technologies based on XML and Web services and on other emerging internet technologies and standards. One current focus is the addition of security technologies to Web services. Kelvin is the co-chair of the Web Services Security Technical Committee at OASIS. Prior to this, Kelvin was IBM CTO for XML Technology. In that role Kelvin focused on the development and deployment (in IBM products and services offerings) of XML technology (including parsers, style sheet engines and Web services components). Kelvin was a member of the W3C XML Binary Characterization Working Group which investigated the possible creation of a binary XML format. Kelvin is also very interested in declarative application design (using XML grammars to design applications and user interfaces) and is investigating many related technologies. Kelvin also spends quite a lot of his time travelling and meeting with IBM customers world wide, a part of his job that he enjoys very much.
