I understand my note last week may have seemed abrupt and unwelcoming. 
My apologies for that.

I would be delighted to have you apply to the workshop, and I imagine 
that the program committee will be most receptive to having you join us.

As noted below, we rescheduled the workshop for the following week.  The 
new dates are September 26-27.

Dear colleagues,

Please take note of the change of date.

In order to avoid conflicts with a QUIC working group meeting and Yom 
Kippur, we have rescheduled the Workshop on Permissions and User Consent 
for Wednesday and Thursday, September 26-27 (eight days later than 
previously announced).  The venue remains in San Diego; details will be 
sent to those who are accepted.

We expect space to be limited.  The program committee will select among 
submissions based on responses to questions on the application form and 
optional position statements.  We caution you to avoid making 
non-refundable travel plans until you've received notice of acceptance.

> This workshop brings together security and privacy experts, UI/UX researchers, browser vendors, mobile OS developers, API authors, Web publishers and users to address the privacy, security and usability challenges presented by the complex and overlapping variety of permissions and consent systems that are currently presented for hardware sensors, device capabilities and applications on the Web.
> The scope includes:
> * user consent;
> * bundling of permissions;
> * lifetime/duration of permissions;
> * permission inheritance to iframes and other embedded elements;
> * relation to same origin policy;
> * UIs and controls;
> * interaction with private browsing modes;
> * implicit permission grants;
> * progressive permission grants;
> * cross-stack permissions: how OS, browser, and web app permissions interact;
> * permission transparency;
> * relation to regulatory requirements;
> * special considerations for systems that use the browser as a pass-through (e.g. EME and Web Authentication); and
> * permissions/transparency/UI as it relates to display-less devices that connect to the Internet.
> We aim to share experiences and user studies, leading to common understanding of when and how to seek user consent for use of various Web platform capabilities. We expect this workshop to lead to concrete and consistent guidance for API authors and implementers and to identify areas for further standardization or research. An important take-away from this workshop should be guidance on how Permissions APIs should be designed, both now and in the future, considering the rapid evolution of the web platform.
