Workshop Goals

The goal of this workshop is to identify and prioritize directions for
SIV standards work as a means of making SIV more useful in current and
emerging markets. The Voice Browser Working Group is considering
following three activities:

* Identify application requirements for SIV in VoiceXML 3.0
* Identifying SIV standards relevant to VoiceXML 3.0
* Integrate existing and in-process standards with VoiceXML 3.0

The main outcome of the workshop will be the publication of a document
that will serve as a guide for meeting thee above goals.

Scope of the Workshop

This workshop is focused on SIV within VoiceXML 3.0. The scope of this
workshop is restricted in order to make the best use of participants'
time. In general, discussion at the workshop and in the position
papers should stay focused on the workshop goal. We may identify new
standards for SIV in addition to the existing or in-process SIV

We expect SIV to support a wide variety of privacy policies, but the
topics of the relative merits of various privacy policies and which
policies are subject to legislation are outside the scope of this
