Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to call for participation in:

    W3C Workshop on Permissions and User Consent
    September 18-19 2018, San Diego, CA

Thanks to Qualcomm for hosting the workshop.

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
* 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.

For more information on the workshop, please see details and submission

If you have any questions, please contact organizer Samuel Weiler
<weiler at w3.org>.

W3C Members interested in sponsoring this workshop should contact Alan
Bird <abird at w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 8 of the W3C Process Document:

We look forward to seeing you there.
