The Team organizes Workshops and Symposia to promote early involvement in the charles@96: development of W3C Activities from Members and the public.

charles@96:

The goal of a Workshop is usually either to convene experts and other charles@96: interested parties for an exchange of ideas about a technology or policy, or to charles@96: address the pressing concerns of W3C Members. Organizers of the first type of charles@96: Workshop MAY solicit position papers for the charles@96: Workshop program and MAY use those papers to charles@96: choose attendees and/or presenters.

charles@96:

The goal of a Symposium is usually to educate interested parties about a charles@96: particular subject.

charles@96:

The Call for Participation in a Workshop or Symposium MAY indicate participation requirements or limits, and charles@96: expected deliverables (e.g., reports and minutes). Organization of an event charles@96: does not guarantee further investment by W3C in a particular topic, but charles@96: MAY lead to proposals for new Activities or charles@96: groups.

charles@96:

Workshops and Symposia generally last one to three days. If a Workshop is charles@96: being organized to address the pressing concerns of Members, the Team charles@96: MUST issue the Call for Participation no later charles@96: than six weeks prior to the Workshop's charles@96: scheduled start date. For other Workshops and Symposia, the Team MUST issue a Call for Participation no later than eight weeks prior to the meeting's scheduled start date. charles@96: This helps ensure that speakers and authors have adequate time to prepare charles@96: position papers and talks.

Note: In general, W3C does not organize conferences. Currently, W3C presents its work to the public at charles@96: the annual World Wide Web Conference, which is coordinated by the International World Wide Web Conference Committee charles@96: (IW3C2).
