> Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap
> ------------------------------------------
> 
> Group Meetings Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday:
> 
> * 08:30-18:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings
> * 12:00-14:00: Lunch (each group will determine their lunch time)
> * 15:00-18:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose)
> 
> Some groups have requested guidance on when to allocate Unstructured time to break into parallel informal discussions within their groups, for more cross-group conversation, or for more hallway conversation.
> 
> We encourage groups to have these informal discussions overlap the AC meeting to minimize hard conflicts for AC reps, and we encourage all groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same time, thus creating more opportunities for interaction.
> 
> This year we have scheduled the AC Meeting towards the end of the day from 15:00 to 18:00 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We hope this will minimize the likelihood of conflicts with group meetings.
> 
> AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time within their Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and Friday and thus avoid conflict with the AC meeting.
> 
> 
> TPAC 2015 Meeting feedback will help us determine the 2016 structure.
> 
> 
> ------------------------------------------
> Remote participation
> ------------------------------------------
> 
> Groups may request telephone access for remote participants. We plan to use MIT's webex system as we have done for the past two AC Meetings.
> 
> If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please let us know on acregister@w3.org as the number of requests may play a role in the level of service we provide.
> 
> IRC is available for all meetings.
