Suggested Invitation letter solution for TPAC2013
Building a new script on the server of Beihang is technically feasible, but the data security risk is too high for an untested new system. For AC2008 and WWW Conference in Beijing, Mauro and Angel sent out the invitations with the following info and did not receive feedback stating that the visa applicants had problem with it.
- full name on the passport, e.g. Anqi Li
- organization name, e.g. Beihang University
- city and country of organization, e.g. Beijing, China
- address of the organization, e.g. No.37 Xueyuan Road, Beijing, China (optional)
We will add to the TPAC registration WBS a section for those who need an invitation letter to provide the same information. Previously it was merged with Member records but as TPAC is open to individuals with affiliation to non-Members or without affiliation we should collect it directly in the WBS.
So W3C can collect the non-private data on the registration system and send them to Beihang so that Beihang can generate the invitations and send a static PDF file to the email address used for the registration.
For those who have further requirements wrt the invitation letters, please contact TPAC2013invitation@w3.org.
Suggestions for Scribing for TPAC2013 （ from Wendy and Josh )
- 2 projectors, one for slides, the other for irc minutes
- offer accounts with cloudirc or similar service (Web service sets up a persistent connection to the irc server, so you don't lose your nick or backlog when the local connection drops)
- get everyone in the room to Present+ him/herself (or use tech,badge-in with a scanner or NFC reader)
- make name cards for the table as well as making sure name tags are
- 2-sided with large-print names and nicks, to make it easier for scribes to identify speakers
- table microphones near every participant would be great, or multiple mics with someone walking around to shuttle them to speakers
