W3C Launches Rule Interchange Format Working Group

  W3C is pleased to announce the launch of the Rule Interchange Format
  (RIF) Working Group. "After years of industry and research work in
  rules languages, I'm pleased to see W3C Members working to develop a
  Web-based rules standard," said Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director. Chaired
  by Christian de Sainte Marie (ILOG) and Sandro Hawke (temporary
  co-Chair, W3C), the group is chartered through November 2007 to produce
  a language for the exchange of rules and their transfer between rule
  systems. Rules are executable pieces of declarative knowledge,
  important in managing complex and dynamic operations. Read the press
  release, about the Rule Interchange Format and visit the Semantic Web
  home page.


Candidate Recommendation: Web Services Choreography Description
Language 1.0

  W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of the "Web Services
  Choreography Description Language Version 1.0" (WS-CDL) to Candidate
  Recommendation. This XML-based language describes peer-to-peer
  collaborations between Web service participants by defining their
  behavior from a global viewpoint. Ordered message exchanges thus
  accomplish a common business goal. Comments are welcome through
  31 March. Visit the Web services home page.


Policy for Authorized W3C Translations Announced

  W3C is pleased to announce the "Policy for Authorized W3C
  Translations." For the first time, W3C will allow recognition of
  translations as "authorized" when they are developed through the
  process defined in this policy, which is based on transparency,
  community accountability, and commitment to W3C oversight. At the
  same time, W3C will continue its existing translation process which
  has produced 700 unofficial translations in 44 languages. W3C warmly
  thanks all the translators who have contributed their work.
  Translations of W3C documents are an important resource that helps
  Web standards reach more people worldwide. Read About W3C.
