RE: W3C - OGC Maps for the Web workshop schedule is live

Hi Gobe,

Welcome back from vacation!  If your day was like mine you did a lot of email…

I think we just need to tell the panelists that you have a hard stop at 8:50 and we should be good.  If there’s more to say, one of the program committee members might step up to bat for you at 8:50.

Today is my first day back from vacation.

The workshop agenda looks great!

Looking at the Maps for the Web workshop agenda, I am scheduled to moderate the “Creating accessible Web map widgets" panel on September 29th between 08:00am and 08:50am EDT.

Please note that I will have to leave the Maps for the Web workshop at 08:50am EDT (or 08:55am EDT at the absolute latest) to join a separate event that I am running that day.

So provided the schedule for the “Creating accessible Web map widgets" panel and the presentation before it does not change, I should be able to moderate the panel.

Dear W3C – OGC Maps for the Web workshop participant,

We are pleased and excited to announce that our schedule of talks, panels and demo breakout sessions,  together with participants’ position statements, is live [1] and almost complete 😊, for your review and feedback, on the workshop web site.  We are still negotiating with some panelists, and potentially also updating the schedule with late-breaking changes, notably new panelists, so please keep an eye on the Web site for updates as the workshop approaches, especially if you are a presenter, demo leader, or have volunteered to be a panelist.    We are still working on creating downloadable calendar entries available for each session, but please do mark the sessions in your calendar at this time, so that you don’t become double booked for this event.

If you would like to submit a position statement but have not done so, please send that by reply in the form of an attached PDF or HTML document that we may host on the web site. Please read the position statements of the participants, and other supporting material as possible [2], in advance, so that we may each have a better understanding of the others’ ideas in advance of the workshop. This may allow us to have more meaningful conversations during our valuable time together.

One final note to presenters and breakout leaders is to please submit your materials well in advance, ideally by September 1st (next week!), so that we may caption that material as necessary and possible.

I will be on leave next week, so if you do have questions, please submit them by reply to the email list<> for communication with your program committee.

Finally,  a reminder that the activities of the workshop will be governed according to the W3C code of ethics and professional conduct.

I would like to thank you, on behalf of the workshop program committee, for your participation in the workshop, the first of many, we hope.
