eGov meeting at W3C TPAC (November 1-2, Lyons)

From: Sandro Hawke <sandro@w3.org>
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2010 11:50:22 -0400
To: "W3C eGov Interest Group (All)" <public-egov-ig@w3.org>
Message-ID: <1286985022.5138.17.camel@waldron>
We have reserved a room as part of the W3C TPAC [1] event in Lyons,
France, in about three weeks.   None of the Interest Group chairs expect
to be there, but I will be.   My plan is to have two days of discussion,
mostly about the future of eGov @ W3C.    In particular, I'm thinking
day 1 (Monday) will be about eGov in general, and day 2 (Tuesday) will
be specifically about Government Linked Data (GLD).   

My expectation at this point is that the eGov activity will be
rechartered, with the IG running as a seminar series (as we did in the
spring), with task forces (when/if there is sufficient interest), and
with a GLD Working Group developing vocabularies, standardizing
definitions to assist in procurement, and doing some community building.
I'm thinking we can spend a day digging into each of those in some
depth, sketching out plans in more detail. 

If you're interested, please register:

I strongly recommend attending the plenary day (Wednesday), if you

If you'll be there and have ideas for agenda items, or ways you'd like
to see the event structured, please let me know as soon as possible.
We have about a dozen people currently register, so it may be mostly
discussion format, but if you have interesting material to present,
please let me know.
