W3C Introduces an HTML5 Logo

   18 January 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-8992

   [] W3C unveiled today an HTML5 logo, a striking visual identity
   for the open web platform. W3C encourages early adopters to use
   HTML5 and to provide feedback to the W3C HTML Working Group as
   part of the standardization process. Now there are logos for
   those who have taken up parts of HTML5 into their sites, and
   for anyone who wishes to tell the world they are using or
   referring to HTML5, CSS, SVG, WOFF, and other technologies used
   to build modern Web applications. The logo home page includes a
   badge builder (which generates code for displaying the logo), a
   gallery of sites using the logo, links for buying an HTML5
   T-shirt, instructions for getting free stickers, and more. The
   logo is available under "Creative Commons 3.0 By" so it can be
   adapted by designers to meet their needs. See also the HTML5
   logo FAQ and learn more about HTML5.

W3C Launches RDF Working Group

   21 January 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9000

   W3C today launches the RDF Working Group, whose mission is to
   update the cornerstone standard for the Semantic Web: the
   Resource Description Framework (RDF). The scope of work is to
   extend RDF to include some of the features that the community
   has identified as both desirable and important for
   interoperability based on experience with the 2004 version of
   the standard, but without having a negative effect on existing
   deployment. Some of the anticipated features include JSON and
   Turtle serializations, and a standard model and semantics for
   multiple graphs and graphs stores. Learn more about the
   Semantic Web.

Call for Review: Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) Format 1.0 Proposed
Recommendation

   20 January 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-8998

   The Efficient XML Interchange Working Group has published a
   Proposed Recommendation of "Efficient XML Interchange (EXI)
   Format 1.0." EXI is a very compact, high performance XML
   representation that was designed to work well for a broad range
   of applications. It simultaneously improves performance and
   significantly reduces bandwidth requirements without
   compromising efficient use of other resources such as battery
   life, code size, processing power, and memory. Comments are
   welcome through 17 February. Learn more about the Extensible
   Markup Language (XML) Activity.

Workshops

     * 2011-02-08 ( 8 FEB) – 2011-02-09 ( 9 FEB)
       W3C Web and TV Workshop
       http://www.w3.org/2010/11/web-and-tv/
       Berlin, Germany
       Hosted by Fraunhofer-Fokus
       The IT industry is building the future Web platform at W3C.
       HTML5, CSS, SVG, and other open global standards for Web
       technology are starting to be deployed in browsers, and the
       Web community is enthusiastic about host of new features
       such as location-based services. W3C is organizing this
       workshop to bring the television industry and other
       producers of consumer electronics into the discussion.
       Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to
       share their own perspectives, requirements, and ideas to
       ensure that emerging global standards meet their needs.
     * 2011-04-04 ( 4 APR) – 2011-04-05 ( 5 APR)
       Content on the Multilingual Web
       http://www.multilingualweb.eu/documents/pisa-workshop/pisa-
       cfp
       Pisa, Italy
       Hosted jointly by the Istituto di Informatica e Telematica
       and Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, Consiglio
       Nazionale delle Ricerche.
       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. Following the highly successful first
       event in Madrid, this second workshop will be held in Pisa,
       Italy.
