Members of this group may be interested in this early December
workshop on Permissions. They plan to keep the attendance relatively
small so it can be participatory and live up to the name "workshop",
rather than being a conference of lectures. If you're interested, sign
up sooner rather than later, and bring your ideas to share.

Dear Chairs,

W3C is pleased to call for participation in:

     W3C Workshop on Permissions
     December 5–6 2022, Google Munich, Germany

Thanks to Google for hosting the workshop.

The W3C Workshop on Permissions brings together security and privacy
experts, UI/UX designers and researchers, browser vendors, OS
developers, API authors, web publishers and users. We aim to address the
privacy, security and usability challenges involved in controlling
access to an increasingly powerful set of capabilities on the Web and
other platforms.

The scope includes:

* user concerns and preferences, including those of vulnerable
individuals and communities;
* better alignment of permission lifetime/duration with user tasks;
* risks and benefits of human-centric grouping/categorization of
permissions and applications;
* challenges with novel capabilities;
* capability abuse threat models and mitigations;
* scoping of permissions to origins vs. applications, relation to same
origin policy;
* UIs and controls;
* integrated permission control surfaces tailored to the capability itself;
* permission transparency, accountability, and control; and
* balancing well-specified permissions UX in standards with the ability
for implementers to meet the future user and product requirements.

We aim to share experiences and user studies, leading to common
understanding of how to ensure user comprehension and control of
powerful capabilities while managing cognitive load.

Attendance is free for all invited participants and is open to the
public, whether or not W3C members.

For more information on the workshop, please see details and submission

We look forward to seeing you there.
