Technical Summary 

This document describes how to create a conference using SIP URI-list 
services. In particular, it describes a mechanism that allows a client to
provide a conference server with the initial list of participants using an
INVITE-contained URI-list. 

Working Group Summary 

The document was originally produced by the SIPPING working group, 
but was transferred to the SIP working group due to the need to define 
a new option tag, in conformance with RFC 3427. 

Document Quality 

There is a strong requirement from OMA and 3GPP for a SIP 
solution in this area.
