Call for TPAC Breakout sessions


The week of October 26 will be dedicated to a distributed unconference,
with a series of 1-hour breakouts whose topics are defined by TPAC

We invite attendees to suggest breakout sessions via the wiki before
October 19th:


Chairs, please encourage your groups and communities to contribute their
ideas to the wiki as early as possible; since the breakouts are virtual
this year, we need to finalize the list of breakouts by October 19th to
leave enough time to finalize their scheduling.

In addition to the usual breakout discussions organized for the traditional
TPAC community (IG/WG/BG participants, selected CG participants, W3C member
representatives), we are trying something new this year. We plan to open a
set of breakouts to the broader public, in an effort to bring more diverse
voices into the W3C community. We feel this is necessary to ensure the
fullest range of users and perspectives is represented and encoded in our
web standards.

Breakout proposers are invited to opt-in to make their breakout open to the
public in order to invite a wider and more diverse set. While there aren't
clearly defined limits to what topics would benefit from this, we encourage
Public Breakouts to focus on use cases or ergonomics of a technology, and
to provide upfront onboarding and context for any breakouts that include
deep technical dive.

Please see https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC/2020/SessionIdeas#Public_Breakout
for more details.

Registration for the public (anyone non eligible to the TPAC participation
rules [1], including CG participants not covered by these rules) to the
Public Breakouts will happen separately, starting later this month.


TPAC Diversity Fund


W3C has established once again a TPAC Diversity Fund, sponsored by W3C
Members Adobe, Samsung Electronics, Coil, Littleguy SL, Microsoft,
TetraLogical, Siteimprove; and one anonymous individual sponsor. This year,
for the first time W3C itself is contributing toward that Fund and we
expect to continue contributing in subsequent years. It is a decision that
W3C Management took last November. W3C has decided for 2020 to contribute

As an international organization, we can see the immense value we gain from
having greater gender diversity, and expertise from across multiple
countries and cultures.

Applicants should be from a group that is under-represented in the web
community, and unable to attend TPAC without financial help. Applications
are due 27 September 2020. All applicants will be notified on 5 October

Please find more information in the application form:


For any questions, please contact <w3t-tpregister@w3.org>

With kind regards,

Alexandra Lacourba

W3C Global events coordinator
