Hi Sung Hei, Wook,

Though the work will be challenging, it's really important for Web-based signage.

I've been terribly busy this year too. Sorry about not making progress at all.
I really appliciate your poroposal.

I've read your post.
I completely agree with your poroposal.
I look forward to your work.

> -          Overview of emergency information system for digital signage: this part provides brief description of the overall lifecycle of emergency information that can be displayed in the digital signage system. Normally emergency information is officially generated by the national disaster related center such as weather center or national relief organization. This part can describe the overall structure of emergency information system and describes how the information data may be processed by the digital signage system in general.
> -          Classification of Severity Level for display: the emergency information should be displayed differently according to the seriousness and urgency. Same information can have different impact according to the circumstances. For example, emergency information such as weather, emergency status of other area is informational and can be classified as minor alarm. Information such as earthquake, tsunami, and fire that involve threats to the surrounding are classified as major alarm. This part assumes there are different levels of alerts/alarm which can vary from minor alarm (such as weather, emergency news of other area) to major alarm (such as earthquake, tsunami, fire, etc.) that involves threats to the surrounding. This part intends to classify the severity levels and suggests method of display that can be used for each level. Some display method can include such as display format, display frequency, type of sound produced, etc. We can draw some requirements for each level in this process and make some gap analysis that may be needed. This part classifies the Severity Level based on the seriousness and urgency of the emergency information. It will not classify the actual type of emergency, since this is a national regulatory matter and is out of scope of W3C. For example, it will not assign earthquake as level something.
> -          Reception of emergency information: this part can describe how the emergency information can be received by the digital signage system using web technology. We are considering WebSocket or HTTP PUSH for this.
> -          Display of emergency information: this part describes how to display the emergency information using web technology. There can be various methods to consider in displaying emergency message, from use of ticker box, small window pop-up, full screen display with warning alarm, etc. This part can list some of the related web-technology that maybe used and include some example codes.
> I believe we can work on the topics described above. I believe the work should be aligned with the core profile. For example, terminology, structure of the document, etc. There can be other topics that can be considered in this work. Any comments or ideas are welcome.

> I think we need a space to work on this proposal and also to collect comments and ideas. We will try to make a skeleton for this work in the W3C wiki, maybe by next week, if there is no objection.
