Re: Countdown to CFP / website launch

Comments on the registration survey:

0) The title we're using on the website is "W3C/OGC Joint Workshop on Maps
for the Web", should use the same wording here.

00) It currently says “Anybody with a W3C account can answer this form”. Is
there a way to support answers without an account? If not, we should add
info about account creation to the CFP.

1) Intro is great. Short & clear.

2) For bio: if we're not going to have explicit fields for name &
affiliation, there should be a statement that these will be taken from the
W3C account (in case someone needs to update that info).

Might also want to add a checkbox for “Can we publish your name,
affiliation, and bio on the workshop website?”
(The CFP currently says that we may do this for people who submit a
talk/session, but it helps to be explicit.)

3) Maybe explicitly ask people to say why they are indicating remote
“Are you planning to attend in person or remotely? For remote
participation, what factors (e.g., funding, travel restrictions) are
affecting your ability to participate in person?”

4, 5, & 6) In addition to the free-form questions about goals of
participation, it would be helpful to have a set of checkboxes for whether
the registrant is planning to submit a talk proposal, hack session
proposal, or written position statement. (That way, we know who to follow
up with!) There could be a link back to the CFP web page for information
about how to make those submissions.
