> Dear Advisory Committee Representative:
> Today we are delighted to officially welcome members of the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), the global publishing community that has developed the EPUB standard, into W3C. We made the public announcement that the combination is completed in a press release [1] on 1 February, together with supportive testimonials from W3C and IDPF members.
> We are excited to begin this new chapter to advance the future of publishing together at W3C, as we work to align publishing technologies such as EPUB 3.1 and Web technologies.  The Publishing@W3C roadmap includes the existing Digital Publishing Interest Group, the Web Annotations Working Group as well as several new groups:  a new Publishing Business Group, EPUB 3.1 Community Group, and later this year we anticipate the chartering of a Publishing Working Group.
> The experience of participating in W3C activities will be new to many members of the IDPF and greater publishing community, and we know that you will welcome them and help to create the empowering environment that has become a hallmark of W3C.  Please also join me in congratulating the IDPF and W3C teams who helped to make this exciting combination a reality.
