<H3><HR>SCOPE </H3>
In the last year, there has been an increasing interest into the integration
of audio and video into the Web. The Web offers the unique opportunity of
fully integrating audio/video with many other media types (hypertext, images,
...), making Web technology a contender for the &quot;television of the
future&quot;. <BR>
However, lacking both a forum for standardisation and a common reference
implementation, current solutions for audio/video integration into the Web
tend to be piecemeal and non-interoperable. The purpose of this workshop
is to provide a forum for exploring future directions of standardisation
process in this area within the W3C (WWW Consortium). Participants will
be representatives of W3C member organisations and other qualified experts
from research and industry.<BR>
We solicit short position papers (one to maximally five pages) describing
anything from a &quot;wild idea&quot; to a complete specification or implementations.
The main areas of interest include (see also &quot;<A HREF="http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/AudioVideo/Activity">W3C
Activity: Audio and Video</A>&quot;):

There will be a limit of 70 participants. There is no registration fee.
Potential participants should submit to the workshop chair short position
papers of one to five pages. Most importantly, the paper should state clearly
your potential contribution to/idea on the integration of real-time multimedia
into the Web. The papers can be submitted via e-mail (preferred) or in paper
form. Allowed formats for e-mail submissions are, in order of preference:
a URL to the paper, HTML, Postscript, PDF, RTF and ASCII.<BR>
Papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Based on the reviews,
we will ask a subset of participants to present talks. To maximize the time
spent in interactive discussions, not all attendees will make presentations.
However, all position papers will be included on the workshop website, and
will appear in the printed participants' proceedings. W3C may also publish
accepted papers.<BR>
Note: The website will be available ot the general public, so position papers
must be available for public dissemination. <BR>
Workshop participants may also be interested visiting the <A HREF="http://www.isi.edu/pfhsn96/">&quot;Protocol
for High-Speed Networks&quot;</A> conference, which is scheduled at INRIA
Sophia-Antipolis in the week after theW3C workshop.<BR>
Papers will be made available on the Web. Printed participants' proceedings
will be distributed to workshop attendees. W3C may also publish accepted
papers in other media.<BR>
Today: Send a message the workshop chair stating your intention to submit
a paper, or your general interest in the workshop. <BR>
