TPAC 2016 Registration Now Open

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
WG/IG Chairs, Advisory Board, TAG, Community Groups members who signed up  
to meet,

Registration for TPAC is now open:

   TPAC 2016
   19-23 September 2016
   Centro de Congressos de Lisboa
   Lisbon, Portugal

  **Chairs, please be sure to forward this information frequently to  
participants in your groups.
  We will seek additional information from Chairs closer to the meeting  
regarding audio visual needs and other requests.**

  We invite all TPAC participants to:

  1) Register (see below).
  2) Make your hotel reservation via the hotel booking link:

W3C has arranged discount room rates from 17 (check-in) until 24 September  
2016 (check-out) with three different hotels.
We strongly recommend to make hotel reservations before the Summer starts  
(June, early July) as September is a very busy period in Lisbon.
For booking tips and more information about hotels, see:

Thank you, Coralie Mercier
Head of W3C Marketing & Communications

Please note that registration is not complete until payment has been made.

Plenary Day 2016 (Unconference)

Plenary Day 2016 consists of unconference breakouts for TPAC participants.

We invite attendees to suggest breakout sessions via the wiki:

Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap

Group Meetings Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday:

  * 08:30-18:00: Traditional Group face-to-face meetings
  * 12:00-14:00: Lunch (each group will determine their lunch time)
  * 15:00-18:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose)

Some groups have requested guidance on when to allocate Unstructured time  
to break into parallel informal discussions within their groups, for more  
cross-group conversation, or for more hallway conversation.

We encourage groups to have these informal discussions overlap the AC  
meeting to minimize hard conflicts for AC reps, and we encourage all  
groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same time, thus creating  
more opportunities for interaction.

This year again we have scheduled the AC Meeting towards the end of the  
day from 15:00 to 18:00 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We hope this  
will minimize the likelihood of conflicts with group meetings.

AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time within their  
Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and Friday and thus avoid  
conflict with the AC meeting.

Remote participation

Working/Interest Groups may request telephone access for remote  
participants. We plan to use MIT's webex system as we have done for the  
past two AC Meetings.

If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please let  
us know on as the number of requests may play a role in  
the level of service we provide.

IRC is available for all meetings.
