Call for Review: HTML5 Proposed Recommendation Published

   16 September 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4074

   The HTML Working Group has published a Proposed Recommendation
   of "HTML5." This specification defines the 5th major revision
   of the core language of the World Wide Web: the Hypertext
   Markup Language (HTML). In this version, new features are
   introduced to help Web application authors, new elements are
   introduced based on research into prevailing authoring
   practices, and special attention has been given to defining
   clear conformance criteria for user agents in an effort to
   improve interoperability. Comments are welcome through 14
   October. Learn more about the HTML Activity.

Upcoming Workshop: Privacy and User–Centric Controls

   22 September 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4089

   Today the W3C announced a Workshop on Privacy and User–Centric
   Controls, to investigate strategies toward better privacy
   protection on the Web, especially for mobile devices.

   https://www.w3.org/2014/privacyws/

   The Workshop focus will be on users: user experience, user
   behavior and how we can offer controls that provide the
   necessary transparency of privacy-affecting interactions. We
   will also discuss how developers can meet users’ privacy needs
   on the Web, including what APIs are necessary for user privacy.

   Sample Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

     * Improving the UI for stateful services, overview of states
     * Defaults for expiration of stateful situations
     * How to convey state information to the User
     * How to deal with logging and how to provide interfaces for
       logged data
     * Requirements for private browsing on mobile
     * A privacy ontology for mobile apps and their use of
       personal data
     * The value of privacy in paradigms for mobile UI
     * Selective release of personal information to apps
     * Controlling the geo-location interfaces, including UI
       challenges
     * Enforcing data expiry

   W3C membership is not required to participate. There is no cost
   to participate and the event is open to all. All participants
   are required to submit a position paper or statement of
   interest by 10 October 2014. Learn more how to participate.

W3C Invites Implementations of Encoding

   16 September 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4072

   The Internationalization Working Group invites implementation
   of the Candidate Recommendation of "Encoding." The utf-8
   encoding is the most appropriate encoding for interchange of
   Unicode, the universal coded character set. Therefore for new
   protocols and formats, as well as existing formats deployed in
   new contexts, this specification requires (and defines) the
   utf-8 encoding. The other (legacy) encodings have been defined
   to some extent in the past. However, user agents have not
   always implemented them in the same way, have not always used
   the same labels, and often differ in dealing with undefined and
   former proprietary areas of encodings. This specification
   addresses those gaps so that new user agents do not have to
   reverse engineer encoding implementations and existing user
   agents can converge. Learn more about the Internationalization
   Activity.

Workshops

     * 2014-11-20 (20 NOV) – 2014-11-21 (21 NOV)
       Workshop on Privacy and User–Centric Controls
       https://www.w3.org/2014/privacyws/
       Berlin, Germany
       Hosted by Deutsche Telekom
       Participants will investigate strategies toward better
       privacy protection on the Web that are effective and lead
       to benefits in the near term. This includes discussing
       basic privacy UI features that will, on the long run,
       create a user experience that loops with user expectations.
       We expect certain controls and dashboards in a car. Perhaps
       we can create a similar clarity for the privacy dashboard
       of our devices.
       The Workshop focus will be on users: user experience, user
       behavior and how we can offer controls that provide the
       necessary transparency of privacy-affecting interactions.
       We will also discuss how developers can meet users' privacy
       needs on the Web, including what APIs are necessary for
       user privacy.
