Please note that registration is not complete until payment has been made.

Plenary Day 2015 (Unconference)

Plenary Day 2015 consists of:

1) A brief Plenary Session in the morning from approximately 8:30-10:30.
   This will include a panel with Tim Berners-Lee, Jun Murai, and Vint Cerf
   moderated by Jeff Jaffe.

2) Unconference breakouts for TPAC participants.

   We invite attendees to suggest breakout sessions via the wiki:

Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap

Group Meetings Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday:

* 08:30-18:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings
* 12:00-14:00: Lunch (each group will determine their lunch time)
* 15:00-18:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose)

Some groups have requested guidance on when to allocate Unstructured time
to break into parallel informal discussions within their groups, for more
cross-group conversation, or for more hallway conversation.

We encourage groups to have these informal discussions overlap the AC
meeting to minimize hard conflicts for AC reps, and we encourage all groups
to schedule their unstructured time at the same time, thus creating more
opportunities for interaction.

This year we have scheduled the AC Meeting towards the end of the day from
15:00 to 18:00 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We hope this will
minimize the likelihood of conflicts with group meetings.

AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time within their
Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and Friday and thus avoid
conflict with the AC meeting.

TPAC 2015 Meeting feedback will help us determine the 2016 structure.

Remote participation

Groups may request telephone access for remote participants. We plan to use
MIT's webex system as we have done for the past two AC Meetings.

If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please let
us know on acregister@w3.org as the number of requests may play a role in
the level of service we provide.

IRC is available for all meetings.
