The next face to face for the Automotive Web Platform Business Group will be at W3C TPAC in Lyon on 23 October, the Automotive Working Group is meeting 25 and 26 October there.

Calls are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month immediately following the Auto WG call. The Auto WG meets on a rotating schedule and when there is both a BG and WG call, the call is extended to one hour and thirty minutes with the time equally divided or decided based on agenda topics.

Task Forces may meet separately either on an ad-hoc basis established with participants or on a regular schedule as is the case with the joint task force on Automotive Web Payments.
