Thanks Maryam for the offer to host, and Lukasz for volunteering to help. It seems the Newcastle University premises would be more suited for such a workshop.

As you may have noticed, we did not have time to discuss this topic in detail on our call last week. As Frederick noted [1], now we'll need to consider whether we have the resources to put together a workshop. Any other volunteers who could help organise the workshop, please get in touch.

Setting the goals and scope of the workshop right is important, but equally important is to attract a diverse group of right participants across the industry to the workshop, including (this list is not exhaustive):

* browser implementers (in plural)
* web standards people (also outside the DAS WG)
* security and privacy experts and researchers (from within the W3C and outside)
* browser UI/UX experts
* web developers and related practitioners

All - please socialise the workshop idea within your network. Note that W3C workshops are open to the public, so participants do not need to be W3C members.

> Related, I took an action [1] to investigate whether Intel could host such a combined DAS WG F2F meeting and "privacy & security" workshop in Europe, and found out we might be able to host a 3 day event at our London office in Canary Wharf. The caveat is, due to space limitations the maximum number of participants would be around 25.
