W3C is pleased to call for participation in:

    W3C Workshop on Permissions and User Consent
    September 18-19 2018, San Diego, CA

Thanks to Qualcomm for hosting the workshop.

This workshop brings together security and privacy experts, UI/UX 
researchers, browser vendors, mobile OS developers, API authors, Web 
publishers and users to address the privacy, security and usability 
challenges presented by the complex and overlapping variety of 
permissions and consent systems that are currently presented for 
hardware sensors, device capabilities and applications on the Web.

The scope includes:

* user consent;
* bundling of permissions;
* lifetime/duration of permissions;
* permission inheritance to iframes and other embedded elements;
* relation to same origin policy;
* UIs and controls;
* interaction with private browsing modes;
* implicit permission grants;
* progressive permission grants;
* cross-stack permissions: how OS, browser, and web app permissions 
* permission transparency;
* relation to regulatory requirements;
* special considerations for systems that use the browser as a 
pass-through (e.g. EME and Web Authentication); and
* permissions/transparency/UI as it relates to display-less devices that 
connect to the Internet.

We aim to share experiences and user studies, leading to common 
understanding of when and how to seek user consent for use of various 
Web platform capabilities. We expect this workshop to lead to concrete 
and consistent guidance for API authors and implementers and to identify 
areas for further standardization or research. An important take-away 
from this workshop should be guidance on how Permissions APIs should be 
designed, both now and in the future, considering the rapid evolution of 
the web platform.

For more information on the workshop, please see details and submission 

If you have any questions, please contact organizer Samuel Weiler
