At last week's telecon at least one person noted [1] that his
interest in scheduling a WG face-to-face meeting at MIT
during the week of 22 January [2] would be influenced by the
presence of other meetings nearby.

I don't know what other events there may be in Boston
around that time, but I forward with permission a list of
possible other W3C Working Groups who may meet that week:
