As in the past, registration is a two-step process:

      https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35125/TPAC2014/

2) A payment system
      https://www.w3.org/2014/11/tpac_reg

For more information about registration fees (including who is not
required to pay registration fees) and the payment system, see
   http://www.w3.org/2014/11/TPAC/#registration

------------------------------------------
Plenary Day 2014 (Unconference, W3C20)
------------------------------------------

Plenary Day 2014 consists of two parts:

1) Unconference breakouts for TPAC participants
    https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2014

    We encourage you to propose breakout sessions in our wiki:
    https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2014/SessionIdeas

2) W3C20, a public Symposium and Gala Dinner at the occasion of W3C's
    20th anniversary. TPAC attendees are invited to W3C20 and must
    register to attend.

    For more information about W3C20, see http://www.w3.org/20/

    Mid-June we plan to open W3C20 registration to the general
    public for a limited number of seats.

------------------------------------------
Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap
------------------------------------------

This year we are building "unstructured time" into the middle of the day 
for two reasons:

* to avoid overlap between the AC meeting and Working Group meetings.

* in response to requests from some groups for sanctioned time to
   break into parallel task forces within their groups, for more
   cross-group interaction opportunities, and for hallway
   conversations.

The Working/Interest Group schedule for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and
Friday will thus be:

* 08:30-11:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings
* 11:00-15:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose). This 
includes lunch.
* 15:00-18:00: Traditional Group ftf meetings

Encouraging all groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same
time creates more opportunities for interaction.

The AC meeting will take place during the 11:00-15:00 slot on Tuesday
and Thursday. AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time
within their Working Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and
Friday and thus avoid conflict with the AC meeting.

In late 2013 and early 2014 there was significant discussion on
w3c-ac-forum about this proposal, including some support and some
counter-proposals. We hope this arrangement will reduce AC/Group
overlap, and provide groups and AC Representatives sufficient
scheduling flexibility so that we can avoid extending TPAC to evenings
and weekends, or further shortening the AC meeting portion of the
week.

TPAC 2014 Meeting feedback will help us determine the 2015 structure.

------------------------------------------
Remote participation
------------------------------------------

Working and Interest Groups may request telephone access for remote
participants.

We do not yet have information on other W3C-provided remote
participation options during TPAC 2014. Assuming a positive
experience at AC 2014, we would anticipate providing remote
participation options during TPAC 2014. Groups may also arrange their
own solutions; please inform us so that we can accommodate bandwidth
demands. We will reach out to group chairs in September to learn more
about remote participation needs.

If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please
let us know on acregister@w3.org as the number of requests may play a
role in the level of service we provide.

We are planning to webcast the W3C20 Symposium.

IRC is available for all meetings.
