Continuing Global Conversation on Key Issues in Web & TV Convergence:
Third Workshop on Web and TV Scheduled

   08 July 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9146

   W3C announces the third in a series of Workshops on the Web and
   TV. The Third W3C Web and TV Workshop takes place in Hollywood,
   California, USA, 19-20 September 2011, hosted by Comcast Cable.
   In the previous two workshops (Tokyo Workshop and Berlin
   Workshop), participants identified opportunities for
   convergence of Web and TV infrastructure and began identifying
   technical challenges. This third workshop will continue these
   efforts, with a particular focus on the needs of content
   creators and distributors. Additionally, there will be an
   opportunity to discuss and debate some of the initial
   requirements arising in the Web and TV Interest Group that
   began its work in February 2011. Anyone may participate in this
   Workshop; a Position Paper is required from a presenter while a
   Statement of Interest is required from an observer. Both
   Position Papers and Statements of Interest are due 15 August
   2011. Please see the Call for Participation for further
   details.

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9147

   This is a public call for prior art on patent Application No.
   11/432,295 and on Patent 7,743,336. The W3C seeks information
   about access control systems available before October 2005 and
   content distribution systems before April 2006 that offer a
   viable solution that may apply to the use of access requests
   policy in Widgets. People who wish to provide feedback should
   refer to the call for prior art for more information. On 13
   November 2009, pursuant to its rights under W3C's Patent
   Policy, Apple, Inc. disclosed US Published Patent Application
   No. 11/432,295 and US Published Patent Application 11/409,276
   and claimed that it applies to the Web Applications WG's
   "Widget Access Request Policy specification." Apple excluded
   all claims from the W3C Royalty-Free License commitment of the
   W3C Patent Policy given by Participants of the Web Applications
   Working Group. In accordance with the exception procedures of
   the Patent Policy, W3C launched a Patent Advisory Group (PAG)
   to determine possible solutions. The PAG has advised W3C to
   issue this call for prior art.

First Draft of XML Encryption 1.1 CipherReference Processing using
2.0 Transforms Specification Published

   07 July 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9144

   The XML Security Working Group has published a First Public
   Working Draft of " "XML Encryption 1.1 CipherReference
   Processing using 2.0 Transforms" " specification. This
   specification brings the benefits of the XML Signature 2.0
   transform processing model to XML Encryption, reducing the
   attack surface and simplifying the processing model. Related
   2.0 specifications are in Last Call, including XML Signature
   2.0, Canonical XML 2.0 and the XML Signature Streaming Profile
   of XPath 1.0. The XML Security WG also has 1.1 specifications
   in Candidate Recommendation, including XML Signature 1.1, XML
   Encryption 1.1, XML Signature Properties, and XML Security
   Generic Hybrid Ciphers.

   To address patent disclosures related to the XML Signature 1.1
   and 2.0 and XML Encryption 1.1 specifications, W3C has
   chartered a Patent Advisory Group that is in progress. Learn

Ontology for Media Resources 1.0 is a W3C Candidate Recommendation

   07 July 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9143

   The Media Annotations Working Group invites implementation of
   the Candidate Recommendation "Ontology for Media Resources 1.0"
   . This document defines the Ontology for Media Resources 1.0.
   The term "Ontology" is used in its broadest possible
   definition: a core vocabulary. The intent of this vocabulary is
   to bridge the different descriptions of media resources, and
   provide a core set of descriptive properties. This document
   defines a core set of metadata properties for media resources,
   along with their mappings to elements from a set of existing
   metadata formats. Besides that, the document presents a
   Semantic Web compatible implementation of the abstract ontology
   using RDF/OWL. The document is mostly targeted towards media
   resources available on the Web, as opposed to media resources
   that are only accessible in local repositories. See the group's
   Media Ontology Test Suite. Learn more about the Video in the
   Web Activity.

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9141

   The Voice Browser Working Group has published a W3C
   Recommendation of "Voice Browser Call Control: CCXML Version
   1.0." The Call Control Extensible Markup Language (CCXML)
   provides declarative markup to describe telephony call control.
   CCXML can be used in conjunction with a dialog system such as
   VoiceXML. Learn more about the Voice Browser Activity.

Working with Time Zones Published as an updated Working Group Note

   05 July 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9140

   The Internationalization (I18N) Core Working Group has
   published an updated version of "Working with Time Zones" as a
   Working Group Note. Date and time values can be complex and the
   relationship between computer and human timekeeping systems can
   lead to problems. The working group has updated this version to
   contain more comprehensive guidelines and best practices for
   working with time and time zones in applications and document
   formats. Use cases are provided to help choose an approach that
   ensures that geographically distributed applications work well.
   This document also aims to provide a basic understanding and
   vocabulary for talking about time and time handling in
   software. Learn more about the Internationalization Activity.

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9138

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS3 Ruby Module." "Ruby" are short runs of
   text alongside the base text, typically used in East Asian
   documents to indicate pronunciation or to provide a short
   annotation. This document proposes a set of CSS properties
   associated with the 'Ruby' elements. They can be used in
   combination with the Ruby elements of HTML. Learn more about
   the Style Activity.

Incubator Group Report: Semantic Sensor Network XG Final Report

   28 June 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9134

   The W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator Group has published
   their final report. As networks of sensors become more
   commonplace there is a greater need for their management and
   querying to be assisted by standards and computer reasoning.
   Building on the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement services-based
   architecture and standards, including four description
   languages, the group produced ontologies for describing sensors
   and extended a language to support semantic annotations. The
   report lists use-cases and reviews existing ontologies leading
   to the selection of the SSN ontology, analyzes examples and
   semantic markup as well as mapping to existing standards. The
   report also includes a list of directions for future work in
   the context of Linked Sensor Data, or Semantic Internet of
   Things for work at the border of Internet of Things and
   Internet of Service. The group plans to create a W3C Community
   Group to focus on the maintenance and extension of the SSN
   Ontology.

   This publication is part of the Incubator Activity, a forum
   where W3C Members can innovate and experiment. This work is not
   on the W3C standards track.
