W3C Launches Unified Services Description Language Incubator Group

   17 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8899

   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the Unified Service
   Description Language Incubator Group, whose mission is to
   define a language for describing general and generic parts of
   technical and business services to allow services to become
   tradable and consumable. The following W3C Members have
   sponsored the charter for this group: Attensity Europe GmbH
   (formerly Empolis GmbH), German Research Center for Artificial
   Intelligence (DFKI GmbH), SAP AG, Siemens AG. Read more about
   the Incubator Activity, an initiative to foster development of
   emerging Web-related technologies. Incubator Activity work is
   not on the W3C standards track but in many cases serves as a
   starting point for a future Working Group.

Call for Review: Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) 1.0 Proposed
Recommendation

   14 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8895

   The Timed Text Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) 1.0." The
   Timed Text Markup Language is a content type that represents
   timed text media for the purpose of interchange among authoring
   systems. Timed text is textual information that is
   intrinsically or extrinsically associated with timing
   information. It is intended to be used for the purpose of
   transcoding or exchanging timed text information among legacy
   distribution content formats presently in use for subtitling
   and captioning functions. Comments are welcome through 12
   October. Learn more about the Video in the Web Activity.

       Cambridge, MA, USA
       This workshop will explore solutions to privacy based on

       solicit contributions on techniques for `sticky policies'
       that ensure that policies constantly move along with the
       related data.

       The Multilingual Web - Where Are We?
       http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/madrid/cfp
       Madrid, Spain
       Hosted by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
       Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication
       in all walks of life. As the share of English web pages
       decreases and that of other languages increases, it is
       vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the
       World Wide Web.
       The MultilingualWeb project is looking at best practices
       and standards related to all aspects of creating,
       localizing and deploying the Web multilingually. The
       project aims to raise the visibility of existing best
       practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle
       for this is a series of four events which are planned for
       the coming two years. As the first of the four events, this
       workshop will introduce and review currently available best
       practices and standards aimed at helping content creators,
       localizers, tools developers, and others meet the
       challenges of the multilingual Web.
