W3C Technical Plenary and Advisory Committee (TPAC) Meetings 2023
Nearly all of them have public minutesthat document both participants, and a good portion of what was discussed. I have my own notes, and combined with recollected details of what was minuted, I have my own observations to share. I encourage everyone who participated at TPAC (whether in-person or remote) to consider either writing a summary blog post about the experience, perhaps highlighting a few things that stood out, or if there were specific technical discussions that advanced something in a positive direction, or challenges blocking progress, those are worth their own blog posts as well.
TPAC week 2023took place from Monday 2023-09-11 through Friday 2023-09-15 , in Sevilla , Spain .
Here is a summary outline of meetings, sessions, and discussions I participated in. Not listed: conversations at breakfasts, morning & afternoon breaks, lunches, dinners, and of course hallways. Unlinkedfor now, each of these has a calendar event with description, minutes , almost all of which are public.

Those are the sessions & discussions that I found in my notes. I also met a lot of new people during meetings, meals, and discussions at breaks. As I write up my notes on specific sessions and their minutes (and hyperlink the above list items), I expect to recall more context and details. If you were at TPAC in Seville, I encourage you to write-up your experiences as well, while the thoughts, feelings, and insights are fresh in your mind. By documenting & publishing our collective experiences (using the #w3cTPAC hashtag) we can build upon them together.
