W3C International Workshop [1] on the Implementation of a Device Description Repository

Position papers deadline: 31 May 2006.
Workshop Dates and Venue: 12-13 July 2006, in Madrid, Spain.
Host: Telefónica Investigación y Desarrollo.

Participants will discuss the design, implementation and use of a Device Description Repository (DDR) proposed by the MWI Device Description Working Group. The proposed DDR will provide device information to content and service providers for adapting content to suit client devices.

The Requirements [2] of the DDR were recently published by the DDWG. The results of the Workshop shall be a significant part of any future W3C activity aimed at making the proposed DDR a reality.

Background: The DDR Requirements were achieved by the Device Description Working Group through the generous participation and input from experts representing mobile operators, device vendors, software and service providers, standards bodies (OMA UAProf) and Open Source (WURFL). The DDWG now seeks to determine the best implementation strategies and is therefore holding this workshop for any interested parties to participate, especially those who have expertise/experience to share, and/or have an interest in participating in a possible future W3C/MWI activity to implement a DDR.

There is no fee for workshop participation. Space is limited to about 30 participants.

Thank you for your interest. Please share this message with others who may also be interested.

Rotan Hanrahan,
DDWG Chair and Workshop Chair
