Timed Text Working Group F2F Geneva 16-17 September 2014

The survey results [1] are now in for the TTWG F2F in Geneva on 16-17 September, to which TTCG members are also invited, with the goal of working towards the TTWG charter deliverable of a mapping between TTML and WebVTT.

The results show that 6 members of TTWG will attend every day, and 1 member of TTCG is willing to review documents and participate on-line. Additionally I have had direct communication that 1 further member of TTWG will attend, and intends to bring along some advanced work, and that 1 further member of TTCG will be able to dial-in, and a further member intends to attend in person.

This gives a total of:

7 members TTWG in person
1 member TTCG in person
2 members TTCG by dial-in

I consider this sufficient to hold the meeting and to spend a significant amount of the agenda time on the TTML <—> WebVTT mapping deliverable. Making this a resolution will be an agenda topic in this Thursday’s TTWG meeting.

We have a wiki page for this meeting at https://www.w3.org/wiki/TimedText/geneva2014 and I encourage all those attendees with permission to edit it (TTWG members I believe) to add their details, and to make agenda proposals.

For all others wishing to attend please send me any requests for changes to the wiki page and I will make them on your behalf.

It is likely that we will not spend the entire agenda working on the mapping deliverable and will also spend time working on TTWG-specific topics such as IMSC 1 and TTML 2; in that case I think I’m safe in inviting those in-person attendees who are not TTWG members to observe, noting that the normal rules for W3C Working Group contributions to Recommendations apply, e.g. for the patent policy.

Kind regards,


(co-chair, TTWG)
