Scope of the Workshop

     The workshop will discuss technology and policy considerations for
     the future of P3P including new features or applications of P3P,
     technical problems with P3P1.0, policy goals that P3P may help
     address, requirements unmet by P3P1.0, and legal or policy
     questions that have arisen as a result of P3P implementation.

Goal of the Workshop

     We are inviting position papers that discuss technology or policy
     considerations (or both) for the future of P3P. The results of
     this workshop will inform W3C's decision making on future
     P3P-related efforts, stimulate discussions of new applications of
     P3P that are possible based on the current P3P specification, and
     facilitate coordination with organizations engaged in related

Expected Audience

We expect several communities to contribute to the workshop:

     * Organizations that develop P3P software
     * Organizations with P3P-enabled web sites
     * Technologists from academia and industry who are experimenting
       with P3P and related technologies
     * Organizations that represent industry sectors on privacy issues
       or promote industry self-regulatory efforts related to privacy
       (industry associations, privacy seal providers, etc.)
     * Privacy activists and organizations that represent individuals
       on privacy issues
     * Academic scholars who are studying privacy technology and policy
     * Organizations that are developing standards that may use P3P
     * Government regulators and policy makers (and members of their
       staff) from around the world


The results of the workshop, including submitted position papers,
presentations, and minutes, will be made public on the Web.
