       Do Not Track and Beyond
       Berkeley, California
       Hosted by UC Berkeley and TRUST Science and Technology
       This workshop serves as a forum for the W3C membership and
       the public to discuss the Consortium's next steps in the
       area of tracking protection and Web privacy. What have we
       learned from Do Not Track standardization and real-world
       implementations? Furthermore, undoubtedly support for
       privacy on the Web platform cannot end with Do Not Track:
       what should we look at next and beyond DNT?

       Electronic Books and the Open Web Platform
       New York (USA)
       Hosted by O'Reilly Media
       Today’s eBook market is dynamic, fast-changing and strong.
       eBooks compete with printed versions, and there is a wide
       choice of hardware and software available for eBook
       readers. Nevertheless, publishers face major business and
       technical challenges in this market, some of which could be
       reduced or removed by standardization.

       Making the Multilingual Web Work
       Rome, Italy
       Hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the
       United Nations (FAO).
       The MultilingualWeb community develops and promotes best
       practices and standards related to all aspects of creating,
       localizing, and deploying the Web across boundaries of
       language. It aims to raise the visibility of existing best
       practices and standards for dealing with language on the
       Internet and on identifying and resolving gaps that keep
       the Internet from living up to its global potential.
