The Protocols and Formats Working Group will hold a three-day meeting Wednesday and Thursday, 24 and 25 April 2013. The principal topic for this meeting is to focus on ARIA 1.1 development, ARIA 1.0 User Agent Implementation Guide, ARIA implementation testing, and future planning. The meeting is co-located with meetings of the HTML Working Group and Web Applications Working Group, allowing the opportunity to cross-schedule time on topics of mutual interest.


Participation in the Working Group meeting is open to participants in good standing of W3C/WAI's Protocols and Formats Working Group (PFWG). Observers are also welcome.

Remote Participation

The usual telephone bridge will be available during the meeting time and from half an hour before. We will use the usual IRC channel for managing agenda topics and action items only.
