OK, http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/interest/meetings/tp2004#agenda is getting 
closer to final. I've allocated topics to timeslots, so it should be clearer 
what's when. The RDF-calendar session has been brought forward to monday am.

Detailed agenda-tweaking discussion follows. First some logistic
points:

 * if anyone here expects to be at the Tech Plenary but hasn't registered
   yet, please contact me ASAP since the registration forms have been
   closed.

* if anyone is attending but still looking for accomodation, I believe 
   the venue hotel, http://www.w3.org/2003/08/allgroupoverview.html#Venue
   still has room allocations for W3C attendees. See URL for details.

* I have accepted all 'observer' requests for meeting attendence. As a
   public Interest Group, the distinction between observers and quiet 
   participants is not particularly distinct. The room has seating for 
   35 participants plus about 35 more around the edge of room. The Tech 
   Plenary registration system knows of 19 IG participants registered, 
   plus ~26 observer requests.



Agenda issues (see http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/interest/meetings/tp2004#agenda)

I've (after discussion with SW Coordination Group folks and Steven 
Pemberton today, [1]) allocated 1 hour after lunch on monday for a joint 
session with the HTML Working Group, who have just circulated a proposal 
for RDF-in-XHTML. The monday session is intended largely for
presentation of this work, as well as the GRDDL efforts. Further
discussion will happen via the (proposed) SW Best Practices WG, who will 
be addressing this topic later in the week (likely Fri AM, per [2]). 

The agenda consists largely of short topical sessions and discussion,
with a number of "lightning talk" presentations of interesting work.
There is currently unallocated time, so if other attendees would like to 
give short, informal talks on an RDF / Semantic Web topic or project,
let me know. We can leave a bit of flexibility in. 

I've tried to judge (based on mailing list and previous f2f discussion)
which topics needed more than a 5 minutes lightning talk allocation.
Previously we've found that lightning talks are a fun way to give a
brief taster for a project/issue; please don't try to infer any sense of 
implied importance from the length of the timeslots allocated. 

Jeremy, Patrick, I've included a slot for contexts/named graphs, but not yet for 
Trix (http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/2003/HPL-2003-268.html). Given
the email discussions it generated, I'd be happy to have a lightning
talk on that topic from you or Patrick. It relates to the RDF-in-XHTML 
syntax proposal the HTML folks will be presenting on monday afternoon (sorry
you'll likely miss that), so I wonder if we should fit it in monday 
morning. If you'd like do do this, let me know.

Graham, I've included 20 mins for RDF datatyping on monday morning. I'd
like to hear about your work on datatype-aware inference, but if you
could include a brief overview of the new RDF datatyping machinery, I
expect that'd be appreciated. It'd also be useful to have some
round-the-table discussion in that slot to get a sense for how people
are implementing this new aspect of RDF.

Janne, you asked about API discussion. I'm not sure what's best to do on
that topic. Could you (and/or anyone else who'll be there) make a
concrete proposal for a short session on this topic?

I don't expect the agenda to change a great deal now, but I shall
continue fleshing out that page with materials, links and any new 
agenda items through tommorrow. I'll also try to leave in some space 
tuesday afternoon so we can allocate the time during the meeting
according to the direction our discussions take. 

Thanks to everyone for their input. See some of you next week,

cheers,

Dan
