Call for Review: Media Queries Proposed Recommendation Published

   26 April 2012 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2012#entry-9430

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Proposed Recommendation of "Media Queries." HTML and CSS
   support media-dependent style sheets tailored for different
   media types. For example, a document may use sans-serif fonts
   when displayed on a screen and serif fonts when printed. Media
   queries extend the functionality of media types by allowing
   more precise labeling of style sheets. Please see the Working
   Group's implementation report and the Media Queries Test Suite.
   Comments on the Proposed Recommendation are welcome through 23
   May. Learn more about the Style Activity.

W3C Workshop: Web-Based Signage

   26 April 2012 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2012#entry-9432

   W3C announces today a Workshop on Web-Based Signage, 14-15 June
   in Tokyo (Chiba), Japan, and hosted by NTT. W3C is organizing a
   workshop to share perspectives, business use cases, and
   technology requirements so that the Open Web Platform can be
   used on large digital displays (such as those found in city
   squares and at sporting events). We invite operators of
   consumer electronics companies, digital signage platforms,
   advertisers, browser vendors, sign owners, and others to
   participate in this discussion. W3C membership is not required
   to participate in this workshop. Please submit a statement of
   interest by 16 May and learn more about participation.

Last Call: Server-Sent Events

   26 April 2012 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2012#entry-9429

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call
   Working Draft of "Server-Sent Events." This specification
   defines an API for opening an HTTP connection for receiving
   push notifications from a server in the form of DOM events. The
   API is designed such that it can be extended to work with other
   push notification schemes such as Push SMS. Comments are
   welcome through 17 May. Learn more about the Rich Web Client
   Activity.

       W3C Workshop on Web-Based Signage
       http://www.w3.org/2012/06/signage/cfp
       Tokyo (Chiba), Japan
       Hosted by NTT
       The Web is at a turning point with the emergence of the
       Open Web Platform, the set of technologies used to create
       highly interactive experiences and social apps on a broad
       range of devices. W3C has helped foster the deployment of
       Web technology on mobile devices and, for the past two
       years, has made the convergence of Web and TV a priority
       (see the Web and TV Interest Group). We now see an
       opportunity to extend the Web to a new class of devices:
       very large digital displays. We invite operators of
       consumer electronics companies, digital signage platforms,
       advertisers, browser vendors, sign owners, and others to
       participate in this discussion.
     * 2012-06-19 (19 JUN) – 2012-06-20 (20 JUN)

       Brussels, Belgium
       Hosted by the European Commission
       For many years, W3C has been a keen promoter of Open Data,
       fostering a culture in which public administrations make
       their data available, ideally in machine-processable
       formats. Many governments have embraced the idea with
       enthusiasm, setting up national data portals. As part of
       the FP7-funded Crossover Project, W3C and the European
       Commission are running a Workshop in June, just ahead of
       the Digital Agenda Summit, to ask a simple question: what
       is all the 'new' government open data being used for?
