Hi, SVG folks-

In case any of you are interested in InkML, I'm forwarding on the 
following information on the upcoming InkML Workshop in Ontario:

-Doug Schepers
W3C Team Contact, SVG and WebApps WGs

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I am pleased to announce the:

    Workshop on using Ink in Multimodal Applications within the W3C's
        Multimodal Architecture and Interfaces
    10-11 July 2009
    Grand Bend, Ontario (Canada)
    Hosted by the University of Western Ontario

Call for Participation:


* Stephen Watt,
    the editor of InkML (University of Western Ontario)

* Kazuyuki Ashimura,
    Multimodal Interaction Activity Lead (W3C)

The W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group seeks to extend the Web
to allow users to dynamically select the most appropriate modes of
interaction for their current needs, including (a) needs of the
specific users (e.g., users with disabilities) (b) across interactions
(e.g., use keyboard instead of speech in a noisy environment) and (c)
within interactions (e.g., speak a command and point to select the
object of the command). Multimodal modes of input are especially
important for devices with small displays and small or nonexistent

We are looking forward to your participation and contributions to
this Workshop. Important dates and Workshop scope are summarized

This announcement follows section 9 of the W3C Process Document

For Kazuyuki Ashimura, Multimodal Interaction Activity Lead;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications

Scope of the Workshop

This workshop is focused on Ink in multimodal applications within MMI
Architecure. The scope of this workshop is restricted in order to make
the best use of participants' time. In general, discussion at the
workshop and in the position papers should stay focused on the
workshop goal. Descriptions of new requirements with usage scenarios
and clear explanations of the problems to be solved is of top priority
for the workshop, while examples of Ink syntax extensions is secondary

Attendees does not have to be familiar with the MMI Architecture but
expertise on Ink technology is expected.

Expected Participants

We expect several communities to contribute to the workshop:

* Handwriting device/software vendors
* Ink technology experts
* Multimodal device vendors
* Web browser vendors
* Developers of applications using multimodal interfaces
