How to Participate

All participants must register using the W3C conference registration system. W3C membership is not required to participate in this workshop. The total number of participants will be limited. To ensure diversity, a limit might be imposed on the maximum number of participants per organization.

Instructions for how to register will be sent to submitters of accepted position papers. These instructions will also indicate a possible limit on the maximum number of participants per organization.

Workshop sessions and documents will be in English. Position papers, presentations, minutes and the workshop report will be public.

There is no fee to participate.

Expression of Interest

To help the organizers plan the workshop: If you wish to participate, please as soon as possible send a message to with a short (one paragraph) "expression of interest" stating:

  • that a representative from your organization plans to submit a position paper
  • whether you want to send one or two participants
  • whether or not you wish to make a presentation

Note: Sending that expression of interest does not mean that you registered for the workshop. It is still necessary to send a position paper (see below), which then must be considered for acceptance by the Program Committee.

What is a position paper?

Position papers should:

  • explain your interest in the Workshop
  • align with the Workshop's stated goals as outlined above.
  • be 1 to 5 pages long
  • be formatted in (valid) HTML/XHTML, PDF, or plain text
  • be sent to

Based on a review of all submitted position papers, the Program Committee will select the most relevant and invite the submitters of those papers to the Workshop. From among all accepted papers, the program committee will choose a small number of papers judged most appropriate for fostering discussion, and ask the authors of those papers to give short presentations about them at the Workshop. After the workshop, those presentations will then be published on the workshop site.
