Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
WG/IG Chairs, Advisory Board, TAG, Community Groups members who signed up to meet,

Registration for TPAC is now open:

    TPAC 2016
    19-23 September 2016
    Centro de Congressos de Lisboa
    Lisbon, Portugal

   **Chairs, please be sure to forward this information frequently to participants in your groups.
   We will seek additional information from Chairs closer to the meeting regarding audio visual needs and other requests.**

   We invite all TPAC participants to:

   1) Register (see below).
   2) Make your hotel reservation via the hotel booking link:

W3C has arranged discount room rates from 17 (check-in) until 24 September 2016 (check-out) with three different hotels.
We strongly recommend to make hotel reservations before the Summer starts (June, early July) as September is a very busy period in Lisbon.
For booking tips and more information about hotels, see:

For more details about the TPAC 2016 venue, refer to:

Please direct questions to w3t-tpregister@w3.org.

Thank you, Coralie Mercier
Head of W3C Marketing & Communications


There is a daily registration fee. The per person, per day fee is:
   * 90 EUR if registration and payment are completed by 2 September 2016.
   * 180 EUR otherwise.

As in the past, registration is a two-step process:

1) A WBS form for meeting and dietary information

2) A payment system
     https://www.w3.org/2016/09/TPAC/tpac_reg (with W3C account)
     https://www.w3.org/2016/09/TPAC/tpac_guest_reg (without W3C account)

For more information about registration fees and the payment system, see:

Please note that registration is not complete until payment has been made.

Plenary Day 2016 (Unconference)

Plenary Day 2016 consists of unconference breakouts for TPAC participants.

We invite attendees to suggest breakout sessions via the wiki:

Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap

Group Meetings Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday:

   * 08:30-18:00: Traditional Group face-to-face meetings
   * 12:00-14:00: Lunch (each group will determine their lunch time)
   * 15:00-18:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose)

Some groups have requested guidance on when to allocate Unstructured time to break into parallel informal discussions within their groups, for more cross-group conversation, or for more hallway conversation.

We encourage groups to have these informal discussions overlap the AC meeting to minimize hard conflicts for AC reps, and we encourage all groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same time, thus creating more opportunities for interaction.

This year again we have scheduled the AC Meeting towards the end of the day from 15:00 to 18:00 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We hope this will minimize the likelihood of conflicts with group meetings.

AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time within their Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and Friday and thus avoid conflict with the AC meeting.

Remote participation

Working/Interest Groups may request telephone access for remote participants. We plan to use MIT's webex system as we have done for the past two AC Meetings.

If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please let us know on acregister@w3.org as the number of requests may play a role in the level of service we provide.

IRC is available for all meetings.
