In case the call is setup after Friday, here are some views on personalization in reading systems:

- currently, personalization generally includes 
	* display variants for collections of books (list/mosaic, sort order)
	* night mode
	* theme
	* font size, font, spacing, margin size, text justification, 
	* appearance of page numbers (or other way of locating the user in the book)
	* background and text color	
	* page animation (turn ...)
	* management of bookmarks and annotations

- we will study in the future additional a11y features like
	* activation of specific key controls on a desktop app
	* activation of vocal controls on a desktop app
	* activation of specific displays for cognitive impaired people (incl. dyslexic people), using enriched content

Note that Jiminy Panoz is currently working for EDRLab on a Readium CSS project, which tackles the difficult subject of the differentiation between what the author's CSS will propose and what the user choices will impose, taking into account what the reading app CSS will require (mostly pagination).

> Subject: [personalization] Call for Participation - Web Publications Personalization Task Force
>  
> Fellow webpubbers,
>  
> I would like to start drafting a skeleton specification for Personalization of Web Publications within the next 2-3 weeks.
>  
> Before setting up issues on GitHub, where we can delve into technical specifics and discussions, let's stake out definitions and requirements for personalization as it relates to a web publication. There is already quite a bit of work on personalization, primarily regarding accessibility, and part of our role is to identify intersections between our requirements and the existing work. We are not reinventing the wheel, but we must be mindful that the context for publications and dedicated reading devices might imply unique requirements.
>  
> I welcome any of you who are interested in this work to join this task force by replying to this email and/or suggesting a time, via Doodle, for our first call.
>  
> Doodle poll: https://doodle.com/poll/tt2w9ad8gigxw3zh <https://doodle.com/poll/tt2w9ad8gigxw3zh>
>  
> Early thoughts for this task force to consider (not all of these will be discussed at our first call)
>  
> Define what we mean by "personalization" and what use cases we need to consider.
> User's customization of the user agent and publication
> For accessibility needs
> For personal preferences
> For privacy reasons
> Other?
> Author/publisher's customization of the publication and prescriptions to the user agent
> Layout and rendering options – UI overrides, etc.
> Responsiveness
> Dictionaries/languages
> Other?
> Other avenues for personalization
> Restrictions to personalization
> Where does our work overlap with task forces for accessibility, manifest, metadata, navigation, and, potentially, privacy?
> Ultimately, where do we draw the line between what comprises a personalized layer (from a user experience point of view) and what falls under pure content authoring?
> Identify other groups at the W3C with whom we should coordinate, and assign people for scouting and outreach.
>  
> Please suggest items for consideration and I will compose an agenda for our call.
