Description of Working Group
The User Services Working Group provides a regular forum for people
interested in user services to identify and initiate projects designed
to improve the quality of information available to end-users of the
Internet. (Note that the actual projects themselves will be handled
by separate groups, such as IETF working groups created to perform certain
projects, or outside organizations such as SIGUCCS.)
(1) Meet on a regular basis to consider projects designed to improve services
to end-users. In general, projects should:
- Clearly address user assistance needs;
- Produce an end-result (e.g., a document, a program plan, etc.);
- Have a reasonably clear approach to achieving the end-result
(with an estimated time for completion); and
- Not duplicate existing or previous efforts.
(2) Create working groups or other focus groups to carry out projects deemed
worthy of pursuing.
(3) Provide a forum in which user services providers can discuss and identify
Goals and Milestones
