Challenges for Future Web Bring Experts Together at W3C Global Plenary

   All this week, the World Wide Web Consortium holds its annual
   Technical Plenary week near its European host site in France. More
   than 350 software engineers, developers, and other experts in a wide
   range of technologies such as HTML, XML, CSS, Mobile Web, Semantic
   Web, and Video in the Web, come together to address a variety of
   challenges in the development of Web standards. Tim Berners-Lee, W3C
   Director and inventor of the Web, will open the 22 October plenary
   session with a keynote and discussion on the technical direction of
   W3C for the next several years and where Web applications,
   documents, and data come together. In the keynote, Berners-Lee will
   also share thoughts on the future of HTML in the browser and how
   HTML and XML communities can learn from each other. Slides and
   minutes from the plenary day will be publicly available. Read the
   press release for more information, including information for media
   wishing to cover the event.


Incubator Group to Evaluate Research on Model-Based User Interfaces

   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the Model-Based User
   Interfaces Incubator Group, sponsored by W3C Members Consiglio
   Nazionale delle Ricerche, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, JustSystems,
   Siemens, Telefónica de España, and Université Catholique de Louvain.
   The group's mission is to evaluate research on model-based user
   interface design as a framework for authoring Web applications and
   with a view to proposing work on related standards. Read more about
   the Incubator Activity, an initiative to foster development of
   emerging Web-related technologies. Incubator Activity work is not on
