Subject: HTML WG F2F meeting, Nov 4-5 at TPAC 2010, Lyon, France

The W3C will be holding its Technical Plenary and AC (TPAC) week of meetings in Lyon, France on Nov 1-5, 2010.  Please see the meeting and venue information below my signature block.

WGs can meet either on Mon-Tue Nov 1-2 or on Thu-Fri Nov 4-5.  The Technical Plenary all day event is on Wed Nov 3.  The W3C Advisory Committee will meet on the evening of Tue Nov 2 and the morning of Thu Nov 4.

The WG co-chairs recommend that the HTML WG accept the TPAC offer to meet F2F in Lyon, France:

a) the HTML WG has had F2F meetings in the past at TPAC meetings in Europe, 
b) the Chairs recommend that the HTML WG meet F2F on Thu-Fri Nov 4-5 at the TPAC meetings in Lyon, France,
c) the chairs encourage WG members to attend the Technical Plenary that will be held on Wed Nov 3,
c) the Chairs propose that the following draft agenda for the WG meeting:
   - we will use an unconference style [1] similar to what we did in Nov 2009 to permit participants to propose important, timely discussion topics, 
   - the Chairs want to encourage that the testing of HTML5 (and associated specs) be one of focus areas of the meeting, 
   - coordination with other WGs such as WebApps WG, I18N WG, W3C TAG, RDFa WG, P&F WG and possibly ECMA TC39 (see below),
   - review of Last Call comments and/or change proposals (if we are in Last Call).

The Hypertext Coordination Group has discussed the scheduling of some related WG meetings and is currently using the following "tentative" schedule for the week.  Note that other WGs will be meeting at TPAC2010 as well - this is only a partial list of WGs.

Mon-Tue Nov 1-2
WebApps WG
XML Security
PF WG (possible meeting of HTML WG Accessibility TF) 
MathML WG 
I18N Core WG
ECMA TC39 (to facilitate a joint meeting with WebApps WG)
Notes: The W3C has invited ECMA T39 to meet in Lyon on Mon-Tue Nov 1-2.  This meeting is not yet confirmed.

Thu-Fri Nov 4-5
W3C Advisory Board
WebFonts WG

TPAC2010 information:

Continuing the well-received series of W3C All Working Group,
Technical Plenary, and Advisory Committee meeting weeks, I am
pleased to announce that we have negotiated a European venue for
TPAC this coming November.

The W3C Working Group, Technical Plenary and Advisory Committee
meetings week (TPAC 2010), will be held in Lyon, France at "Cité
Centre de Congrès de Lyon" [1], from 1 to 5 November.  We are aware
that these dates are the week before the ISWC and IETF meetings;\
we tried diligently to find a convenient venue that was available on
another week but unfortunately due to our late start on that task
we found few viable alternatives.

  [1] http://www.ccc-lyon.com/

The Centre de Congrès de Lyon is a very large conference facility
with many amenities in a single area.  It is also the venue chosen
for the 2012 World Wide Web conference (which fact contributed
to our getting favorable terms for the facility).

There are 3 hotels housed within the conference center proper and
many other hotels nearby and throughout Lyon.  A list of hotels at
various price ranges as well as other details will be included on an
overview page we will send shortly.

The current plan is to hold Group meetings on Monday 1 Nov, Tuesday 2
Nov, Thursday 4 Nov, and Friday 5 November.  The Technical Plenary Day
will be held all day Wednesday 3 November. The AC Executive Session
will start on the evening of Tuesday 2 November and will be continued
in the morning of Thursday 5 November.  A registration fee of 40 Euros
per day will be charged to defray a portion of the costs of the venue
and necessary services.
