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
  https://www.w3.org/2016/09/TPAC/

 **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:
    http://www.delegatehotels.com/e/w3c2016

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:
  https://www.w3.org/2016/09/TPAC/Hotels-Transportation.html#accommodations

For more details about the TPAC 2016 venue, refer to:

Thank you, Coralie Mercier

------------------------------------------
Plenary Day 2016 (Unconference)
------------------------------------------

Plenary Day 2016 consists of unconference breakouts for TPAC participants.
  https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2016

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 acregister@w3.org as the number of requests may play a role in
the level of service we provide.

IRC is available for all meetings.
