variety of reasons and we do not want any of these to be a barrier to
participation. For this reason, we will offer an unlimited number of fee
waivers. The fee waiver operates on a trust basis, making no checks on
eligibility. If you are planning to participate in-person or remotely and
cannot afford the registration fee, please contact w3t-tpregister@w3.org to
benefit from the fee waiver.

Health rules

As the health situation is changing rapidly, we are constantly looking at
the guidance of health authorities and government and trying to make
decisions that can accommodate all of our attendees and ensure a safe
gathering. The safety of our attendees is a priority. We will continue to
assess our health and safety rules until the event starts.

All TPAC participants are expected to comply with the health & safety
