Hi Everyone,

First off an introduction, I am Andy Braun from Sony Ericsson. I have been tagged to chair this POI working group. In addition to this group, my responsibilities in Sony Ericsson include researching emerging web and application technologies for the office of the CTO.

I hope those of you who are Advisory Committee representatives have already seen that a Points of Interest WG charter [1] has been submitted for review. The charter details three main deliverables: a "Points of Interest" Recommendation, a WG Note detailing AR specific POI properties, and another note that covers how AR and Web standards can converge.  There are other potentially separate deliverables, such as best practices, use cases/requirements, a 'landscape' document, test suite, etc.

The review period ends on the 24th of September, so please be sure that you or your AC rep fill in the survey [2] as soon as possible.  If you haven't joined W3C yet, now is the time.  Once the review ends, there is a two week period where W3C management reviews the results and creates the new WG.  So, the WG should be ready to go the week of 11 October.  While we could have our first teleconference during the week of 11 October, many of the group's participants will likely be at ISMAR that week. So I recommend we have our call during the week of 18 October.  Before then, I'll send out a poll for selecting the time and date. I'll follow up with an agenda about a week or so before the meeting.

With regards to the first face to face meeting, we did talk about meeting at TPAC in Lyon during November. However, for a number of reasons which I am happy to discuss, this will not be possible. I would like to meet face to face this year. With holidays approaching I believe the best chance would be during the first week or second week of December.  I will provide more details about the site and logistics in a future note.

I look forward to a continued interesting and fruitful discussion.

Thanks,

Andy Braun
