   Web Applications on Mobile, an overview of the various
   technologies developed in W3C that increase the capabilities of
   Web applications, and how they apply more specifically to the
   mobile context.

First Draft Published for TTML Text and Image Profiles for Internet
Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0

   1 May 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3818

   Today the Timed Text Working Group (TT WG) published a First
   Public Working Draft of "TTML Text and Image Profiles for
   Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0." This document
   specifies two profiles of Timed Text Markup Language 1: a
   text-only profile and an image-only profile. These profiles are
   intended to be used across subtitle and caption delivery
   applications worldwide, thereby simplifying interoperability,
   consistent rendering and conversion to other subtitling and
   captioning formats. The text profile is a superset of TTML
   Simple Delivery Profile for Closed Captions (US). Learn more
   about Video on the Web.

CSS Will Change Module Level 1 First Draft Published

   29 April 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3813

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   First Public Working Draft of "CSS Will Change Module Level 1"
   . This document defines the will-change CSS property, which
   allows an author to inform the UA ahead of time of what kinds
   of changes they are likely to make to an element. This allows
   the UA to optimize how they handle the element ahead of time,
   performing potentially-expensive work preparing for an
   animation before the animation actually begins. Learn more
   about the Style Activity.

Workshops

     * 2014-05-07 ( 7 MAY) – 2014-05-08 ( 8 MAY)
       Seventh MultilingualWeb Workshop: New Horizons for the
       Multilingual Web
       http://www.multilingualweb.eu/documents/2014-madrid-worksho
       p/2014-madrid-cfp
       Madrid, Spain
       Hosted by UPM
       As with previous MultilingualWeb events, this workshop will
       bring together speakers and participants with an interest
       in best practices and standards aimed at helping content
       creators, localizers, tools developers, and others meet the
       challenges of the multilingual Web. This workshop will
       emphasize new technology developments that may lead to new
       opportunities for the Multilingual Web. A unique
       proposition of the workshop is that it brings together
       speakers and provides opportunities for networking across a
       wide range of communities to produce a holistic view of the
       problems faced in developing and deploying multilingual
       content and applications on the Web.
     * 2014-06-25 (25 JUN) – 2014-06-26 (26 JUN)
       Workshop on the Web of Things
       http://www.w3.org/2014/02/wot/
       Berlin, Germany
       Hosted by Siemens
       Participants in this workshop will examine the potential
       for open standards as a basis for services, either between
       devices, at the network edge, e.g. in home hubs, or in the
       cloud. They will discuss the use of web protocols and
       scripting languages for implementing services, the need for
       APIs for implementing drivers for specific IoT
       technologies, a shared approach to describing services as a
       basis for interoperability, and the underlying use of
       HTTP/COAP, Web Sockets, and EXI/JSON for RESTful services.
