Well, I registered for this, but I am not sure how much time I will have to
spend at this group's meeting.

I am interested in talking about the accessibility uses of RDF - there is
work going on in several WAI groups including Authoring Tools and Evaluation
and Repair Tools, so an hour or so to chat about that would be cool. Those
groups are meeting in teh second half of the week, together on Thursday but
also with Web Content for thursday afternoon, and seperately at this stage

So I am not sure what then best way to arrange it is.

  On Wednesday, 28 February 2001, W3C will be holding a Technical
  Plenary meeting with the aim of cross-fertilization of ideas
  across the W3C Working Groups and Interest Groups.  A mixture of
  architecture, process, and current issues will be on the agenda
  for this one-day meeting.

  This Technical Plenary was scheduled in the middle of the week
  and all Working Group and Interest Group Chairs were invited to
  request space for a face-to-face meeting of their respective
  groups immediately before or after this Plenary day.  As chair
  of the RDF Interest Group, I requested and received space for
  a face-to-face meeting on Monday and Tuesday, February 26-27.

  I am now open to suggestions and proposals for how we might
  best use this opportunity to meet together.  One requirement
  I will impose is that good records be made of our meeting and
  distributed to the RDF IG mailing list for the benefit of those
  who are not able to be present, whether due to scheduling
  constraints, travel constraints, or room capacity constraints.

  Preregistration is required both for the RDF IG meeting
  and the Technical Plenary.  We anticipate that space will
  be at a premium; indeed, our guess at how many RDF IG
  participants might wish to attend was exactly that -- a guess.
  Both the Technical Plenary and the RDF IG meetings have a
  maximum cutoff threshold beyond which no further registrations
  will be accepted.  If we exceed the capacity of the meeting
  space for the RDF IG we may retrict registration to those
  who have been active participants on our mailing lists.

  The meeting details and a link to the registration page are in

  Other W3C Working Groups will be meeting at the same time and
  in the same hotel.  Some of those groups have elected to open
  their individual group meetings to observers from other groups.
  The registration form has space for you to request observer
  status in other group meeting on Thursday and Friday.  Observer
  status is also subject to room capacity.

  Suggestions to the list please; if you could maintain the subject line /
  message threading it would be appreciated. I'm offline till tuesday pm, at
  which point I'll attempt to summarise any discussion.
