Participation is open to members in good standing of W3C/WAI's Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG), and to individuals interested in participating in and contributing to the efforts of the EOWG. Any participants not already members of the EOWG should read the EOWG Charter and the how to join page, and send the requested information to the EOWG Chair.

For the Friday March 1 session of the EOWG meeting, the focus of this meeting will be on exchanging information about promotion and implementation of W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), primarily but not exclusively in European countries. On Friday we welcome people who are engaged in promoting implementation of WCAG in Europe but who are not involved in the EOWG. However, we request that they familiarize themselves with and be interested in coordinating their efforts with EOWG.

This EOWG meeting is held during the latter part of W3C's Technical Plenary Week, near Nice, in France. If you are interested in other parts of the Technical Plenary Week, which includes a day of general presentations and discussion on Wednesday, please note carefully the instructions regarding participation and registration for different parts of the week, and email the EOWG Chair with any questions.


Pre-registration is required of everyone attending the EOWG meeting on February 28 and/or March 1, 2002, and for any other portion of the Tech Plenary Week.

Best practices superset:
A rudimentary initial definition is highlighting a core of best practices in design or development of Web content or Web-based applications, potentially overlapping different areas such as accessibility, device independence, internationalization, use of metadata, etc. Such a "superset" might be tied together by no more than collective demonstration in model templates, or by any one of a number of more organized strategies for linkage and co-promoting.
