Hi,

Ideally, there would be a position paper from the POI WG chair saying 
what is proposed, the charter review and commenting process of the W3C 
and explaining/proposing your next steps to the community of interested 
folks who might be attending the meeting but not be on this mailing list.

Unsafe to assume that everyone who is relevant has registered to this list.

Anyone who wishes to make a presentation at the meeting in Seoul must 
submit a position paper.

Deadline for position papers for the International AR Standards meeting 
is 5 PM UK today, Sept 13.

Regards,
