It's too early for me to commit to being in Sapporo this year. Between this group, Houdini, and other standards related topics I have my fingers in, I'd say there's a decent chance. 

For this group in particular, I think a face to face meeting of some variety is a good idea to bootstrap the work for a V2 spec.  Perhaps sooner than TPAC though.  Microsoft (probably) could host a WG F2F either in Redmond or Mountain View if there's interest.  That doesn't necessarily preclude meeting at TPAC also.


* I know I know, we say this every year. But every year the question is asked before we know what travel budget we'll have. :-)

Hi, folks–

As mentioned on the Web Annotation WG telcon today, TPAC is in Hokkaido, Sapporo, Japan this year, 1–6 November.

The meeting planners need to know which working groups plan to have a meeting there.

If you think you might be able to attend, or know you can't, please say so on this thread, so we can make an informed decision on whether there are enough Pointer Events WG participants to justify having a meeting there.

The deadline is in 3 weeks, so we need to know ASAP.

We ask Group Chairs to start discussions to determine whether and when your group(s) would like to meet during this week.

Please complete the following questionnaire by 30 April 2015:

   *** NOTE: If you chair more than one group, you will need to appoint
   alternate(s) to complete the questionnaire for the other group(s) to
   avoid overwriting your replies for the first group. ***

   Plenary Day: Wednesday 08:30 - 18:00

There will be an early-bird registration fee of USD 85 per day to defray a portion of the meeting costs.

We look forward to another successful meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact <w3t-tpregister@w3.org>.

For the W3C TPAC 2015 Meeting Team;
