Hello, Kunter:

W3C Teleconferences are indeed meetings we hold by telephone. We have
direct access telephone numbers in the U.S. (Boston), the U.K., and
France. Regretably, we do not have SIP (or IAX or Skype) access.

We will also utilize IRC. However, our use of IRC during our
teleconferences will be for the purpose of creating minutes of the
meeting, for managing the speaker queue, for capturing assigned action
items, and for capturing consensus resolutions on issues.
