> for Participation)
> I am pleased to announce an upcoming W3C Workshop:
>  Access Control Application Scenarios
>  17-18 November 2009
>  Abbaye de Neumünster -- Luxembourg (City)
> The Workshop is sponsored by W3C and the European Commission Primelife
> Project [1].
> Some important dates:

>  * 30 October 2009: Acceptance notification sent.
>  * 06 November 2009: Program released, deadline for registration
>  * 17-18 November 2009: Workshop
> This Workshop brings together worldwide research and user communities
> to explore evolving application scenarios for access control
> technologies, such as XACML. Results form a number of recent European
> research projects in the grid, cloud computing, and privacy areas show
> overlapping use cases for these technologies that extend beyond
> classical intra-enterprise applications. At this Workshop, we will
> explore commonalities between different application scenarios, and
> standardization needs (at W3C and elsewhere) above and beyond the
> technology substrate that exists today. It is also the fruit of
> cooperation between multiple research projects and the NESSI[2]
> European Technology Platform standardization initiative.
> This Workshop is intended to explore the wider space of access control
> applications. It is W3C's goal to facilitate a broad dialogue of
> relevant industry and research players. By identifying commonalities
> between access control applications across diverse use cases, the
> Workshop will help identify standardization opportunities in the
> access control space, both at W3C and elsewhere.
> Hal Lockhart, co-Chair of the XACML TC at OASIS is currently exploring
> the possibility to co-chair the Workshop. Rigo Wenning (W3C) and
> responsible for the Primelife Project within W3C will also co-chair.
> The Program Committee has key persons from access control, privacy and
> services area with major industry participation. We look forward to
> your participation and contributions to this Workshop.
> If you have any questions, please contact Rigo Wenning <>.
