Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,
Members of the Second Screen Working Group,


The Director is pleased to announce the re-chartering of the Second 
Screen Working Group:
   https://www.w3.org/2014/secondscreen/charter-2016.html

This group is chartered until 31 October 2017.

With no change in scope, this Working Group's mission continues to be to 
develop specifications that enable web pages to use secondary screens to 
display web content. This charter extends the Second Screen Working 
Group for a year so that it may finalize its work on the Presentation 
API, currently published as Candidate Recommendation, and pursue its 
work on the Remote Playback API.

Underlying protocols remain out of scope of the Working Group at this 
stage, but please note that a possible open screen protocol for the 
Presentation API and Remote Playback API will be incubated in parallel 
in the companion Second Screen Community Group.

Please use the following form to join the Working Group. The form will 
also instruct you how to nominate participants:
    https://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/74168/join

Existing participants of the Working Group under the previous charter 
remain automatically members of the group, there is no need for them to 
re-join the group.

The Working Group chair is Anssi Kostiainen (Intel). The staff contact 
is François Daoust (0.20 FTE).

Results of Call for Review

We called for review on 27 September 2016:

Thanks to the 22 Members who provided input:
    https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/33280/sswg-charter-2016/results

19 reviewers suggested that the group be approved without change, and 1 
suggested editorial changes but supported the proposal even if the 
changes were not adopted. The majority of those changes have been 
incorporated in the revised charter.

One reviewer wondered whether the list of features referenced by the 
charter was exhaustive. We clarified that the list was to be understand 
as examples of possible features that could be integrated based on past 
discussions in the Working Group. Additional features may be considered.


This announcement follows section 7.1.2 of the W3C Process Document:
    https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#ACReviewAfter

and the Call for Participation follows section 5.2.4 of the W3C Process 
Document:
