comments from previous discussion have been incorporated into updated draft - now under review by W3C management and advisory committee. Likely to be some requests for change.
13:38:14 [Vivienne]
zakim, mute me
13:38:14 [Zakim]
Vivienne should now be muted
13:38:29 [davidsloan]
may require further group discussion to deal with requests. Charter should be in place by 1st July so fast turnaround required
13:38:34 [davidsloan]
zakim, mute me
13:38:34 [Zakim]
davidsloan was already muted, davidsloan
13:39:08 [davidsloan]
feedback from group on frequency of symposia - 3 or 4 per year?
13:39:16 [Vivienne]
it all seemed okay to me when I read it
13:39:28 [Vivienne]
I'd rather be safe and say 3
13:39:38 [silvia_mirri]
I agree with Vivienne
13:40:00 [davidsloan]
yehya - organising symposia is a lot of work, so going up to 4 is a significant extra activity
13:40:50 [davidsloan]
shadi - 3 symposia might be too restrictive in terms of subjects covered
13:40:51 [Justin]

zakim, acc me
13:41:36 [Zakim]
I don't understand 'acc me', annika
13:41:48 [annika]
zakim, unmute me
13:41:48 [Zakim]
annika should no longer be muted
13:41:49 [davidsloan]
justin - is it possible to include a conditional premise on number of symposia - e.g. "4 if time allows"
13:42:47 [davidsloan]
annika - we are moving towards a scientific conference structure for soliciting, reviewing and accepting papers - maybe review this to reduce effort required?
13:43:17 [davidsloan]
annika - could we experiment with different formats?
13:43:25 [annika]
zakim, mute me
13:43:25 [Zakim]

yehya, christos - query from authors about upload process of final versions of submissions. shadi - Simon might be able to advise
13:47:25 [davidsloan]
13:48:36 [davidsloan]
shadi - need to ensure that authors submit final rtf or doc fomat papers; symposium organisers should generate clean, valid, accessible HTML from these

david: for text customization we asked people to send contributions to the mailing list
13:51:17 [shadi]
...this way it has a referenceable UR I
13:51:44 [shadi]
13:53:15 [shadi]
...looked at the contribution and assessed where we can fit them within the flow of the symposium
13:53:29 [christos]

13:54:00 [shadi]
...introduced points at logical points in the symposium
13:54:16 [shadi]
...also clarified that these are additional non-reviewed contributions
13:54:26 [shadi] make sure it is clear to listeners
13:54:38 [shadi]
...but to allow them to introduce their points
13:55:03 [shadi]
...important to brief the authors about when we expect their input

shadi - good to encourage additional email contributions from knowledgeable people in the field
13:58:26 [davidsloan]
shadi - additional contributions should help symposium achieve its objectives
13:59:16 [davidsloan]
TC4R did not have a break - it carried on for 3 hours, IIRC
14:00:35 [davidsloan]
shadi - participation for more than 2 hours can lead to concentration lapses
14:01:05 [davidsloan]
...but need enough time to allow each author to contribute adequately
