Each meeting will include a morning of invited presentations and an opportunity for member companies to report on their activities. There will be a lunch designed to promote networking among the attendees and invited guests, and the afternoon will be for member companies to advise W3C on how best to address the issues raised in the morning. A brief synopsis of the meetings is as follows:

Tuesday January 6: Public Policy Interest Group

The focus will be on privacy issues.

FLASH:  Security Interest Group Meeting previously planned for Wednesday has been Cancelled

The Security Interest Group meeting planned for 7 January, 1998 has been canceled. We anticipated insufficient content to merit the significant amount of travel involved for many members, after the fairly thorough set of presentations made at the last meeting. We apologize for any problems caused by this late notification.

Thursday January 8: Electronic Commerce Interest Group

The focus of the meeting will be EDI on the Web through XML.

Dress for the meetings is business casual.
