SWIG,

A belated pre-announcement (if such a thing can exist) ...

	SemWeb Interest Group meeting at W3C Technical Plenary
	2006-03-02 (thurs) Mandelieu, France
	Agenda: to follow
	Chair: Danny Ayers
	Room: Riviera A

Every year, W3C has a Technical Plenary meeting. This years event is 
back in Mandelieu, France (27 Feb - 3rd March 2006), and we've usually
had a SWIG meeting. This year, we nearly missed the opportunity due to my 
post-W3C globetrotting, but I'm delighted to announce that Danny Ayers 
has agreed to run a Semantic Web Interest Group meeting during Tech
Plenary week. Thanks Danny! :)

The SemWeb Coordination Group agreed last week to give us a meeting slot 
(*) on Thurs 2nd March. I'm sorry this announcment comes late, and will
therefore appeal more to people who will be at the Technical Plenary
anyway for other reasons. The opportunity to go ahead with the meeting 
came late, and it seemed worth taking; sincere apologies to SWIG
members who (like me) won't be able to attend. 

Danny will circulate more agenda info later in the week, but I wanted 
to get this pre-announcement out quickly since I know folk are already
making plans. If you've agenda ideas and requests, I'd suggest simply 
following up in this thread. If you'd rather take things offlist, do 
please copy Danny too.

http://www.w3.org/2005/12/allgroupoverview.html is the page for the 
entire meeting. This page is public; there may be some W3C Member-only
pages nearby, but I think everything you'll need is public. 
http://www.w3.org/2005/10/tp6groups.html provides a list of room
allocations (ours is the first row, room "Riviera A", borrowed from
SWBPD WG). 

The room capacity is 35 participants plus 35 "observers". As we're 
a fairly informal Interest Group, not a busy busy Working Group, the 
concept of "participant" versus "observer" hasn't traditionally 
been maintained very strongly in SWIG meetings. I'll leave it to Danny
to figure out how best to structure things this time, but the basic idea
is that we have a nice big room with space for about 35 chairs in the 
middle, and 35 around the edge.

The SWIG is a public group (the closest we have to a membership 
list is the membership of semantic-web@w3.org). The meeting won't 
be restricted to W3C Membership; however we would like to know in
in advance who is attending (room logistics, agenda planning, etc).
We don't yet have the web forms set up for this; details to follow
alonside draft agenda.

I think that's about it for now. Thanks again to Danny for stepping in
to run this :)

cheers,

Dan


(*) We're using a room originally allocated to the SemWeb Best Practices and 
Deployment WG. I mention this here as it may well still show up as such 
in some of the meeting room logistics info.
