The logistic and registration form for the March 1st XML Encryption FTF is 
now available:

SIMPLE EXPLAINATION (If you want to attend Encryption only):

If you want to participate in the XML Encryption meeting, follow the steps, 
and when you get to step 4 indicate:
1. if you're from a Member Organization
2. you will not attend any meetings Mon/Tues.
3. you will not attend the Wednsday plenary; select food preferences.
4. you will attend the Thur/Fri block of meetings and that you will attend 
the Encryption Thursday meeting as a WG/IG member -- Encryption is Thursday 
only, you can leave Thursday evening if you don't have participant or 
observer status in any of the other WGs.

LONGER EXPLAINATION (if you want to attend other meetings):

Please note that this meeting will happen as part of a larger Technical 
Plenary which is akin an IETF meeting. However, the important difference is 
that most W3C WGs do not have full public/open participation: Encryption is 
one of the exceptions. Also, even if you are not a WG member, you may 
request to be an observer to a meeting but that is completely at the 
discretion of the chair and will likely be dependent on his/her knowledge of 
you or your participation in related WGs.

Consequently, in step 4 please take note of the follow three issues:

1. Those that wish to participate in the XML Encryption WG but are not 
members in good standing of other W3C WGs should indicate:

>[X] I am neither the representative of a Member Organization nor an Invited 
>Expert, and thus have no obligations regarding member confidentiality. 
>(Note: This may prevent you from observing certain group meetings.)

If you are you a member of another W3C WG you should default to values 
appropriate to those WGs.

2. If you only want to participate in the XML Encryption WG, you'll note 
that since this Activity is not been formally approved yet, it is not listed 
in the list of Active WGs. HOWEVER, in the next section you must indicate 
that you will be attending the Thur/Fri Meetings and that you will be a 
WG/IG member for the single day (Thur March 1) Encryption Meeting.

3. You should also indicate whether you wish to attend the Wednesday Plenary 
meeting which is open to all folks who are attending any session on 
Monday/Tures or Thur/Fri including the Encryption. I believe space for this 
is tight and this is *not* a requirement for XML Encryption, but is more for 
folks concerned with issues/dependencies across a number of WGs.

Sorry this is a bit tricky, feel free to contact me with any questions.
