Agreed. I promoted it on G+ and Twitter, earlier, today as well ...

> Some of you should submit papers.

A bit unsure, about this. I mean, depending on the definition of 'some' ;)
The reason why I'm unsure is that, as you know, you're chairing this and I'm serving on the PC, there and I simply don't know if, say, you and or me would be allowed to submit something as well ... can you check back with Ian, please?

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce an upcoming Workshop:

   W3C Workshop on Data and Services Integration
   20-21 October 2011
   Bedford, MA, USA
   Hosted by Mitre

Integration of heterogeneous data and services has always been a concern for creators and managers of services. With the emergence of the Web, the need for reusing data and services has become even stronger as the number of available services has grown. Different services stacks now exist from Web Services to Cloud-based services.

The goal of this Workshop is to bring together people with different ways of looking at the issues left unsolved by the existing stacks, to investigate the possible paths to help bridging services built using different paradigms, and to identify points where standardization would help integration of services and data.

See below for important dates and requirements for participation; more information is available on the Workshop home page. If you have any questions, please contact Yves Lafon <>.

More background information for this Workshop is available:

This announcement follows section 9 of the Process Document:
