The goal of this interim meeting is interoperability testing and issue resolution. Therefore, we encourage those who are participating in these activities to register.

In particular, we especially encourage those who are involved with testing HTTP/2 implementations to attend, as we’ll have a testing and interop day on Wednesday.

Those who wish to observe the meeting may also register, but we ask you to use your judgement in doing so. In particular, if you are planning to observe, consider whether other colleagues who will be actively participating can represent your views. If we become constrained by available space, observers may be asked to sit at the edge of the room.

If you wish to participate remotely, please indicate this in your registration.

If you only plan to attend for part of the interim, please indicate that when you register.

To register, please e-mail Mark Nottingham by 20 September.

Schedule and Agenda

We’ll be meeting Wednesday 9 through Friday 11 October, 2013. Meetings will begin at 9AM each day, and end at approximately 5pm on Wednesday and Thursday. We plan to finish by 1pm on Friday.
