8:30-9 breakfast
9:00-9:30 intros lead into ...
9:30 -10:30
Open discussion about reactions to the Device Independent Authoring 
Workshop to harvest interesting ideas, update those who did not attend, and 
give those who did attend a chance to digest.
10:30-10:45 break
10:45-12:30 Go through edits to recent draft to determine if we should
 keep as is
 modify and try again
Actual discussion of proposed changes will occur in following telecons and 
discussions on the list. This is just to get a feel for consensus on edits 
not to bring the group to consensus.

12:30-1:30 lunch
1:30-3:00 Should we consider XML in this document or keep it separate?
 KB believes that creating a new language and writing content in a 
language are two different activities for two different audiences, thus 
keep them in separate documents.
 JW believes that these documents and practices are quickly converging.
Discuss user interface metaphors and how they are influenced by changes in 
technology like Voice Browsing and XForms. How will we address these 
metaphors in WCAG 2.0?

3:00-3:30 break
3:30-5:00 Normative vs. Non-normative ( issue #17 in the issues list). As 
part of this discussion Kynn will hopefully demonstrate (or at least 
discuss) using XML/XSLT to generate multiple versions of the document.
 If multiple versions exist, how does one claim conformance? How do we 
write the conformance statement?
 How does one claim conformance on multiple views of documents? How does 
an author who is generating multiple views determine if they conform?
 Are technology-specific "checks" normative or non-normative?
 Gregory and William will present "cyber-ghetto" issues.

8:30-9 breakfast
9:00-10:30 Break into groups to discuss technology-specific techniques. As 
part of this discussion, consider how we will handle "until user agent" 
clauses. Can we get rid of? Do we need to state assumptions? Is there some 
way to say "this is ideally what we'd like but it's not supported yet so in 
the meantime..."
10:30-10:45 break
10:45-12:30 Planning
 When should we aim to go to last call?
 When would people like to see a Recommendation?
 When and where is our next face to face meeting? Volunteers to host?
 When should we publish working drafts of the techniques that we've 
 Are people interested in inviting experts in various technologies to 
present to the group to educate us and for Q&A about how our spec relates 
to other technologies? e.g., invite a MathML guru to discuss MathML so we 
can determine how well our draft will cover MathML as well as what 
techniques we should develop for MathML.

12:30-1:30 lunch
1:30-3:00 With regards to the afternoon with AU WG: ask them to review WCAG 
2.0 for dependencies with ATAG 1.0 and discuss how filling out a Web form 
can be creating Web content.
