Dear Gina,

Thanks for your interests in our workshop.
Like all W3C workshops and meetings i'm aware of, the participation is 
free, but with a limited audeince size. On this workshop, the limit has 
been set to 100 participants.
The process of sponsorship is the following:

1- in order to apply for a grant, you have to submit an abstract and 
some paragraphs explaining why you want to join the event (what you 
would bring in, bring out, and your objectives).
obviously, don't forget to mention that you need travel support.
Note that we are not requesting a full position paper yet, but only an 
abstract with headliens of your future papre. Selected abstracts will be 
developed as full papers after Program committee decision.

2- based on these information, the program committee will rank the
applicants, and based on the sponsorship budget we will be able to 
raise, we will select the first ranked applicants, till we run out of 
budget.

FYI, we are about to announce an extension of the deadline till January 
21. Please let us know if you or your colleagues are working on a 
submission.

Best Regards
Stephane
