W3C originally planned to hold a workshop in June in LA to be
in proximity to the WAP Forum meeting held in Beverly Hills,
but the workshop had to be postponed.

The Hong Kong Workshop is focussing on technology issues as the
mobile networks evolve through a 3rd generation and beyond. For
instance, what roles are there for XHTML, SMIL, CSS, and SVG? Can
the event handling and state management requirements for Mobile be
met in a way that also meets the needs for Voice Browsers? Should
W3C start work on a dialog modelling language for both Mobile and
Voice Browsers? What are the challenges for moving the Web into
multimodal interaction.

This workshop is being held on 5-6 September 2000 in Hong Kong, the
week before the WAP Forum plenary. The workshop is open to anyone
and you don't need to be a W3C or WAP Forum member. The web page is:

W3C is also planning to hold a second workshop a month later
with a broader focus on device independence, accessibility
and content authoring guidelines.
