Last Call: Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0,
Implementating ATAG 2.0

   08 July 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8852

   The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has
   published Last Call Working Drafts of "Authoring Tool
   Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0" and the companion document
   "Implementing ATAG 2.0." ATAG defines how authoring tools
   should help developers produce accessible web content that
   conforms to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
   The ATAG documents also describe how to make authoring tools
   accessible so that people with disabilities can use them.
   Comments are welcome through 2 September 2010. Read the
   invitation to review the ATAG 2.0 Last Call Working Draft and
   about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WA).

RDF Workshop Report Emphasizes Support for JSON, Turtle, Other
Formats

   09 July 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8854

   The last week of June, participants at the W3C RDF Next Steps
   Workshop concluded that support for JSON, Turtle, and for
   "Named Graphs" are top priorities for any future work on RDF.
   Participants also highlighted the importance of compatibility
   with existing deployment. Read about these and other topics in
   the Workshop report. To join the discussion about organizing
   future work on RDF, please share your thoughts on the Semantic
   Web Interest Group mailing list (with a copy to the separate
   RDF Comments list). W3C thanks the National Center for
   Biomedical Ontology at Stanford, Palo Alto, USA, for hosting
   the Workshop. Learn more about the Semantic Web.

Contacts API Working Draft Published

   01 July 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8848

   The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "Contacts API." This document defines the
   high-level interfaces required to provide access to a user's
   unified address book, which may source address book data from
   several sources, both online and locally. Learn more about the
   Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8845

   The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published two
   Group Notes: "Device API Access Control Requirements" and
   "Device API Privacy Requirements." The former defines
   requirements for controlling access to device APIs, illustrated
   by corresponding use cases. The latter provides definitions,
   use cases, and requirements for making device APIs more
   privacy-friendly. Learn more about the Ubiquitous Web
   Applications Activity.

Workshops

     * 2010-07-12 (12 JUL) – 2010-07-13 (13 JUL)
       W3C Workshop on Privacy for Advanced Web APIs
       http://www.w3.org/2010/api-privacy-ws/
       London, England
       Hosted by Vodafone
       As the Web advances toward becoming an application
       development platform that addresses needs previously met by
       native applications, work proceeds on APIs to access
       information that was previously not available to Web
       developers. The broad availability of possibly sensitive
       data collected through location sensors and other
       facilities in a Web browser is just one example of the
       broad new privacy challenges that the Web faces today.
       Earlier approaches to address privacy issues for the Web,
       especially through policy languages, have not seen broad
       implementation in current-generation Web browsers.
       This workshop serves to investigate strategies toward
       better privacy protection on the Web that are effective and
       lead to benefits in the near term.
     * 2010-09-02 ( 2 SEP) – 2010-09-03 ( 3 SEP)
       Web on TV
       http://www.w3.org/2010/09/web-on-tv/
       Tokyo, Japan
       With the support of the Japan Ministry of Internal Affairs
       and Communications
       The demand for access to applications, video, and other
       network services continues to grow. The Web platform itself
       continues its expansion to support mobile devices,
       television, home appliances, in-car systems, and more
       consumer electronics. To meet the growing demand, the Web
       platform of the future will require smarter integration of
       non-PC devices with Web technology so that both hardware
       and software vendors can provide richer Web applications on
       various devices at lower costs.
