What is a position paper?

Position papers should:

  • Explain the participant's perspective on the topic of the Workshop
  • Explain their viewpoint and/or explain why they should attend
  • Include concrete examples of their suggestions

Refer to the position papers submitted for a similar W3C workshop to see what a position paper generally implies.

The program committee review position papers before issuing an invite to the workshop, and the chairs will use the position papers to pull together the workshop program. We also make accepted position papers publicly available so that other attendees can get an idea of who will be attending, and what their interests are.
