+<p>The Team organizes <a name="EventsW" id="EventsW">Workshops</a> and <a name=
+"EventsS" id="EventsS">Symposia</a> to promote early involvement in the
+development of W3C Activities from Members and the public.</p>
+<p>The goal of a Workshop is usually either to convene experts and other
+interested parties for an exchange of ideas about a technology or policy, or to
+address the pressing concerns of W3C Members. Organizers of the first type of
+Workshop <span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> solicit position papers for the
+Workshop program and <span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> use those papers to
+choose attendees and/or presenters.</p>
+<p>The goal of a Symposium is usually to educate interested parties about a
+particular subject.</p>
+<p>The Call for Participation in a Workshop or Symposium <span class=
+"rfc2119">MAY</span> indicate participation requirements or limits, and
+expected deliverables (e.g., reports and minutes). Organization of an event
+does not guarantee further investment by W3C in a particular topic, but
+<span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> lead to proposals for new Activities or
+groups.</p>
+<p>Workshops and Symposia generally last one to three days. If a Workshop is
+being organized to address the pressing concerns of Members, the Team
+<span class="rfc2119">MUST</span> issue the Call for Participation no later
+than <span class="time-interval">six weeks</span> prior to the Workshop's
+scheduled start date. For other Workshops and Symposia, the Team <span class=
+"rfc2119">MUST</span> issue a Call for Participation no later than <span class=
+"time-interval">eight weeks</span> prior to the meeting's scheduled start date.
+This helps ensure that speakers and authors have adequate time to prepare
+position papers and talks.</p>
+<p><strong>Note:</strong> In general, W3C does not organize <a name="EventsC"
+id="EventsC">conferences</a>. Currently, W3C presents its work to the public at
+the annual World Wide Web Conference, which is coordinated by the <a href=
+"http://www.iw3c2.org/">International World Wide Web Conference Committee</a>
+(<acronym>IW3C2</acronym>).</p>
