Teleconference Meeting Information

The teleconference dial-in details will be sent to all participants on the public mailing list before the call and can be seen below; the dial-in details come in a US standard phone number and SIP number variants, you will need to use a conference code to access the call.

Please, remember to dial "#" right after the conference code. If everything goes well, you should hear a beep meaning you've just joined the conference, and could hear other participants.

We encourage all participants on teleconference calls to also login to IRC. Please see IRC details. Please also note that the teleconference system at W3C is called Zakim. There are more detailed instructions on how to use it. Zakim has an accompanying and useful IRC bot. Please read next section to learn more about it.


Meetings are minuted and minutes are public. Scribe duties rotate among IG participants, so all should be familiar with these instructions. Scribing occurs on IRC so please take a look at the IRC instructions below.

Scribe duties

  • Taking minutes during the meeting
  • Cleaning up the minutes after the meeting
  • Circulating the minutes to the staff contact within 24h after the meeting concludes

Face-to-Face Meetings

This group does not hold Face-to-Face meetings in an effort to allow as many people as possible to participate in the group without hindrance. We may hold workshops in the future when a specific topic relies on people getting together to work through a goal in a short space of time. We have held one past Face-to-Face meeting, details of which are given below:

  • TPAC Face-to-Face - information on our TPAC Face-to-Face meeting on 14th - 15th November in Shenzhen, China.
