I would be supportive of Thursday-Friday, to avoid overlap with the Second Screen WG.

I think a F2F also this year at TPAC would be time well spent. In particular, the close proximity to the Bay Area companies means we might be able to attract new participants and implementers to the meeting. I expect the various sensor deliverables [1] to be the main topic of discussion.

The recurring theme around sensors seems to be privacy and security, so a joint meeting with the domain experts in that field sounds like a good idea.

Thanks,
