As we know, Web resources can change in real time and this has indeed  
happened.  I was speaking today with Ian Jacobs, head of the W3C  
Communications Team, and I noted the instructions for Invited Experts  
could use clarification.  We edited these as we we speaking, and  
hopefully these are now clearer.  However, the clarifications in the  
original invitation (see below) are based on the previous set of  
instructions.  I copied the previous instructions before reloading  
the Web page, and they were as follows:

Read the Uncertainty Reasoning for the World Wide Web Incubator Group  
Charter.
Read the invited expert and collaborators agreement.
Read the Policy for Approval of Invited Experts.
Contact the Chairs and Staff Contacts of this group: Ken Laskey  
<klaskey@mitre.org>, Kathryn Laskey <klaskey@gmu.edu>, ; their  
approval is a pre-requisite for going through the following steps.
If you do not already have a W3C Access Account login and password  
(check if there is an account associated with your address), complete  
the Public Access Request Form. In the "Describe the specific purpose  
for this public access name and password:" field, fill in: "To apply  
for participation in the Uncertainty Reasoning for the World Wide Web  
Incubator Group as an Invited Expert." You should receive your W3C  
login name and password within two (2) business days.
After you receive your W3C login name, complete the W3C Invited  
Expert Application. You should receive a reply within ten (10)  
business days. If your request is accepted, you will receive an  
invitation with additional instructions for formally joining the group.
You will then be able to complete the form for joining and  
participating in the Uncertainty Reasoning for the World Wide Web  
Incubator Group as an Invited Expert, at which point you may begin  
your participation in the group.
You will also be subscribed automatically to the group's mailing lists.
Either following the new instructions or the old ones should lead you  
through the same process, one we look forward to you successfully  
completing.

Let me know if there are any problems.

Ken

Dear URW3 invitee,

I am writing because of your interest in the Uncertainty Reasoning in  
the World Wide Web.  We have successfully chartered a W3C XG on  
Uncertainty Reasoning.  Our charter can be found at:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/urw3/.  Given your past  
participation in other groups and workshops, we are inviting you to  
join the XG.

Instructions for joining the group can be found at http://www.w3.org/ 
2004/01/pp-impl/40302/instructions. These instructions are generally  
straightforward but a few points of clarification follow.  The  
instructions differ slightly depending on whether you work for a W3C  
member organization.

In either case, first read the charter; then you will need to obtain  
a W3C login if you do not already have one.  This is a simple process  
(step 2 in the Member instructions or step 5 for non-Members) that  
involves filling out a web form and receiving an account name and  
password via email (this may take up to a couple of days).

After you have obtained the login, then you need to fill out the  
appropriate form at the above instructions link. If you work for a  
W3C member, have your Advisory Committee representative complete the  
form for your organization to join the Uncertainty Reasoning for the  
World Wide Web Incubator Group (substep 1 of Member step 3), and then  
complete the form for nominating individuals such as yourself to  
participate (substep 2 of Member step 3).  Note, if you are the AC  
rep, you still have to nominate yourself.

If you do not work for a W3C member, then follow the instructions to  
complete the form to join as an Invited Expert.  You should read the  
Invited Expert agreement (step 2 for non-Members) and the approval  
process (step 3). Approval from one of the co-chairs, Ken Laskey or  
Kathy Laskey, is required.  Let one of the co-chairs know you are  
applying as an Invited Expert so they can be expecting the approval  
request; this will do for step 4.  As soon as you have your W3C  
login, complete the Invited Expert application (step 6). W3C will  
contact the co-chairs asking for approval and you will be notified  
when that is complete. At that point, proceed to step 7 and you will  
have joined and be subscribed to all the group's mailing lists.

I hope you will join the URW3 and become an active participant.  For  
those of you on the Yahoo temporary mailing list, that list will no  
longer be maintained.

Regards,

Ken Laskey
Kathryn Laskey
URW3-XG co-chairs
