The W3C Voice Browser Working Group held their winter face-to-face 
meeting in Mandelieu, France, February 28 thorugh March-3, 2006.  On 
Tuesday, February 28, we attended the Multimodal Interaction Working 
Group meeting where we discussed and resolved issues (1) raised during 
the authoring of several example SCXML/VXML/XHTML multimodal 
applications and (2) feedback from developers of multimodal 
applications.  The two working groups also met with the Compound 
Document Framework Working Group and discussed how the multimodal 
framework relates to CDF's compound document backplane.  We also met 
with the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group where the Multimodal 
Interaction Working Group agreed to provide a set of guidelines for 
developing speech and multimodal applications.

On Thursday, March 2, the Voice Browser Working Group reviewed and 
discussed the status of each of its subgroups.  We also discussed an 
event-driven Forms Interpretation Algorithm, external events and data in 
the Data-Flow-Presentation framework to be used by VoiceXML 3.0, and an 
adapter for VoiceXML 2.0/2.1 so they can run in VoiceXML 3.0.  Several 
future telephone meetings were scheduled to clarify and resolve issues 
raised during this discussion.

On Friday, March 3, the Voice Browser Working Group reviewed several 
detailed proposals for VoiceXML 3.0, including speech identification and 
verification, extended media (including video), a new cond attribute in 
the grammar element, connection bridging, and EXPR properties.  Several 
future telephone meetings were scheduled to review final versions of 
these proposals.

Our next face-to-face meeting will be held in Atlanta on June 19-21.
