W3C is pleased to announce an upcoming Workshop:

    (Third) W3C Web and TV Workshop
    19-20 September 2011
    Hollywood, California, USA
    http://www.w3.org/2011/09/webtv/

Following the success of its regional workshops in Tokyo, Japan and
Berlin, Germany, the W3C will host a third workshop on Web and TV
convergence in Hollywood, California on 19-20 September, 2011.

In the previous two workshops, participants identified opportunities
for convergence of Web and TV infrastructure and began identifying
technical challenges. This third workshop will continue these efforts,
with a particular focus on the needs of content creators and
distributors.

Additionally, there will be an opportunity to discuss and debate some
of the initial requirements arising in the Web and TV Interest Group
that began its work in February 2011. It is expected that starting
this fall, these requirements will drive W3C Working Group activity,
defining new standards for the Web.

Although we anticipate significant participation from organizations in
North America, all W3C Workshops are international and we encourage
participation from relevant industries all over the world.

See below for important dates and requirements for participation; more
information is available on the Workshop home page. If you have any
questions, please contact Kazuyuki Ashimura <ashimura@w3.org>.
