How do we Improve Internet Privacy? IAB, ISOC, MIT, W3C Join Forces
in Workshop

   21 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8902

   W3C is pleased to announce a Workshop on Internet Privacy: How
   can Technology help to improve Privacy on the Internet?, which
   takes place at MIT in Cambridge, MA (USA) on 8-9 December 2010.
   Who we are (e.g. our thoughts, dreams, feelings, DNA sequence),
   what we own (such as financial property), what we have
   experienced and how we behave (audio/visual/olfactory
   transcripts), and how we can be reached (location, endpoint
   identifiers) are among the most personal pieces of information
   about us. More and more of this information is being digitized
   and made available electronically. The question for us
   therefore is: How can we ensure that architectures and
   technologies for the Internet, including the World Wide Web,
   are developed in a way that respects users’ privacy? See the
   Workshop home for more information about participation.
   Position papers are due 5 November. The Workshop is jointly
   organized by these organizations: Internet Architecture Board
   (IAB), Internet Society (ISOC), Massachusetts Institute of
   Technology (MIT), and W3C. Learn more about W3C work on Privacy
   and W3C Workshops.

W3C Launches Object Memory Modeling Incubator Group

   27 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8905

   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the Object Memory
   Modeling Incubator Group, whose mission is to define an object
   memory format, which allows for modeling of events or other
   information about individual physical artifacts - ideally over
   their lifetime - and which is explicitly designed to support
   data storage of those logs on so-called smart labels attached
   to the physical artifact. The following W3C Members have
   sponsored the charter for this group: 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.

RDFa API Draft Published

   23 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8904

   The RDFa Working Group has published the First Public Working
   Draft of "RDFa API." RDFa enables authors to publish
   structured information that is both human- and
   machine-readable. Concepts that have traditionally been
   difficult for machines to detect, like people, places, events,
   music, movies, and recipes, are now easily marked up in Web
   documents. While publishing this data is vital to the growth of
   Linked Data, using the information to improve the collective
   utility of the Web for humankind is the true goal. To
   accomplish this goal, it must be simple for Web developers to
   extract and utilize structured information from a Web document.
   This document details such a mechanism; an RDFa Application
   Programming Interface (RDFa API) that allows simple extraction
   and usage of structured information from a Web document. Learn
   more about the Semantic Web Activity.

Multimodal Architecture and Interfaces Draft Updated

   21 September 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8901

   The Multimodal Interaction Working Group has published an
   updated Working Draft of "Multimodal Architecture and
   Interfaces (MMI Architecture)," which defines a general and
   flexible framework providing interoperability among
   modality-specific components from different vendors - for
   example, speech recognition from one vendor and handwriting
   recognition from another. The main changes from the previous
   draft are (1) the inclusion of state charts for modality
   components, (2) the addition of a 'confidential' field to
   life-cycle events and (3) the removal of the 'media' field from
   life-cycle events. A "diff-marked version" of this document is
   available. Learn more about the W3C Multimodal Interaction
   Activity.

Workshops

     * 2010-10-04 ( 4 OCT) – 2010-10-05 ( 5 OCT)
       Workshop on Privacy and Data Usage Control
       http://www.w3.org/2010/policy-ws/
       Cambridge, MA, USA
       This workshop will explore solutions to privacy based on
       controlling data usage and on data handling. We also
       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.

       Cambridge, MA, USA
       Jointly organized by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB),

       personal pieces of information about us. More and more of
       this information is being digitized and made available
