What is iCalendar ?

iCalendar is a standard (RFC 2445 or RFC2445 Syntax Reference) for calendar data exchange. The standard is sometimes referred to as "iCal", which also is the name of the Apple Computer calendar program that provides one of the implementations of the standard.

iCalendar is heavily based on the earlier vCalendar industry specification by the Internet Mail Consortium (IMC). After iCalendar was released, IMC stated that it "hopes that all vCalendar developers take advantage of these new open standards and make their software compatible with both vCalendar 1.0 and iCalendar."
