Dear all,
during the last Web & TV workshop in Berlin, device and content discovery
and control in the home network was identified as a prerequisite for most multiple
screen scenarios and some of the participants expressed interested in outlining requirements
and make a gap analysis with currently available technologies in order to
identify areas where some specification effort may be needed.

In order to handle this discussion, we are issuing a call for participants
for a Task Force on Home Network Content Discovery and Control.

Since this is the first TF created in the IG, below you will find
more information about what a TF is and how it works (in the context of
the Web & TV IG).
Information below are tailored for this particular TF but in the next
weeks a more generic and extended version of the same information will be
published on the IG wiki and/or home page.

We apologize if we didn't manage yet to finalize and publish all information
and tools but we are working on it and they will be available soon.

If you have any comment/question on this CfP feel free to reply to this email.

Home Network TF (of the Web & TV IG)

* How to join the TF
The TF is open to all members of the Web & TV IG.
Proceedings of the TF will be public so will be
also available e.g. to the subscribers of the
Web & TV Mailing list.

Note though that some actions may require to be an official
member of the IG (i.e. a w3c member); one example is editing
the requirement document produced by the IG (see below)

In order to be able to evaluate the interest among IG participants,
interested parties are required to send a simple statement of
interest (in form of a short reply to this email).

* Goals and deliverables of the TF
In a first phase, the goal of the TF will be to identify usecases
for device and content discovery and control in the home network,
gaps in the existing technologies to address these usecases and
requirements that specifications need to address in order to cover such

Another goal for this first phase is also to identify
- if the requirements can be addressed by one ore more existing W3C WGs, OR
- if a new WG is required, OR
- if the work is out of scope for W3C

Deliverables for this first phase are a requirement document that an
existing or new group can use to begin the specification work.

In a (optional) second phase, the TF can be used to monitor and
provide feedbacks or new inputs to the WG working on the specification.

* How is the TF work organized?
- Wiki
In order to enable collaborative work, the TF will use the web & TV wiki.
The wiki will be used both to maintain the requirement document draft and
to keep information about any other relevant discussion raised.
All IG participants (i.e. w3c members) have write access to the wiki.
We may consider having one or more editors to avoid confusion.

- Phone calls
If/when needed, the TF can schedule regular phone calls in order to
discuss relevant topics. Frequency of the phone calls
is a decision for TF participants to make.

- Email discussion
For email discussion, the general Web & TV IG mailing list will be used.
In order to make easy to identify the mail related to the TF
(and allow people to filter email they are not interested to)
each mail thread MUST contain the tag [HOME_NETWORK_TF]

* Relevant links
IG Home:

P.S. attached to this mail an initial draft of a requirement document.
This is just intended as a starting point for our discussion.
Thanks to Bob Lund and Clarke Stevens for providing this initial contribution.

Best Regards,
Giuseppe Pascale on Behalf of the Web & TV IG co-chairs
