This is an advance notice that the Immersive Web Community Group is 
exploring the creation of a Working Group.

In September 2017, the Director postponed the proposed chartering of a 
WebVR Working Group based on the need for further incubation and 
rescoping of the relevant WebVR Community Group:

Since then, the Community Group has extended its scope to account for 
new possibilities in the Augmented Reality space, and renamed itself 
into the Immersive Web Community Group, with its main specification now 
known as WebXR Device API:

The Community Group has now expressed its renewed interest in 
transitioning that work to the formal standardization process and has 
started discussing a charter for an Immersive Web Working Group.

The work on this charter is happening in the following github repository:

with the current draft visible at

It will be discussed on the mailing lists of the Immersive Web Community 

Members may also discuss on <w3c-ac-forum@w3.org>.

We expect to submit a charter for Advisory Committee review in July, and 
are discussing hosting a face-to-face meeting for the would-be Working 
Group during TPAC 2018.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Dominique Hazaël-Massieux <dom@w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 5.2.2 of the W3C Process Document:

Thank you,
