> Plenary Day 2014 (Unconference, W3C20)
> ------------------------------------------
> 
> Plenary Day 2014 consists of two parts:
> 
> 1) Unconference breakouts for TPAC participants
>    https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2014
> 
>    We encourage you to propose breakout sessions in our wiki:
>    https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2014/SessionIdeas
> 
> 2) W3C20, a public Symposium and Gala Dinner at the occasion of W3C's
>    20th anniversary. TPAC attendees are invited to W3C20 and must
>    register to attend.
> 
>    For more information about W3C20, see http://www.w3.org/20/
> 
>    Mid-June we plan to open W3C20 registration to the general
>    public for a limited number of seats.

> Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap
> ------------------------------------------
> 
> This year we are building "unstructured time" into the middle of the day for two reasons:
> 
> * to avoid overlap between the AC meeting and Working Group meetings.
> 
> * in response to requests from some groups for sanctioned time to
>   break into parallel task forces within their groups, for more
>   cross-group interaction opportunities, and for hallway
>   conversations.
> 
> The Working/Interest Group schedule for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and
> Friday will thus be:
> 
> * 08:30-11:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings
> * 11:00-15:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose). This includes lunch.
> * 15:00-18:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings
> 
> Encouraging all groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same
> time creates more opportunities for interaction.
> 
> The AC meeting will take place during the 11:00-15:00 slot on Tuesday
> and Thursday. AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time
> within their Working Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and
> Friday and thus avoid conflict with the AC meeting.
> 
> In late 2013 and early 2014 there was significant discussion on
> w3c-ac-forum about this proposal, including some support and some
> counter-proposals. We hope this arrangement will reduce AC/Group
> overlap, and provide groups and AC Representatives sufficient
> scheduling flexibility so that we can avoid extending TPAC to evenings
> and weekends, or further shortening the AC meeting portion of the
> week.
> 
> TPAC 2014 Meeting feedback will help us determine the 2015 structure.
> 
> ------------------------------------------
> Remote participation
> ------------------------------------------
> 
> Working and Interest Groups may request telephone access for remote
> participants.
> 
> We do not yet have information on other W3C-provided remote
> participation options during TPAC 2014. Assuming a positive
> experience at AC 2014, we would anticipate providing remote
> participation options during TPAC 2014. Groups may also arrange their
> own solutions; please inform us so that we can accommodate bandwidth
> demands. We will reach out to group chairs in September to learn more
> about remote participation needs.
> 
> 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.
> 
> We are planning to webcast the W3C20 Symposium.
> 
> IRC is available for all meetings.
