Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce:

   W3C Web Annotations Workshop: Footnotes, comments, bookmarks, and
marginalia on the Web
   2 April 2014
   San Francisco, USA

The announcement today of a workshop on digital annotations for the Web is
part of our ongoing effort on enhancing the Web experience.

Annotating is the act of creating associations between distinct pieces of
information. Annotation is a ubiquitous activity online in many guises:
comments on articles, footnotes, sticky notes, “hot spots” on images,
timestamped notes on video or audio tracks, highlighted text passages in
ebook readers, evocative pictures attached to song lyrics, quotes and
links on social media, and even tagged bookmarks, are all forms of
annotation. One of the most common and engaging Web activities for the
average person is discussion of a document or piece of media.

Many projects and companies are now turning to annotations to solve a
variety of issues with communication on the Web, and is of particular
interest to the education, research, and digital publishing industries. To
address these needs, W3C's Web Annotations workshop will focus on
identifying standardization priorities for chartering a potential Web
Annotations Working Group [0], on such topics as:

* Robust anchoring to dynamic third-party documents
* Styling selections and annotations
* Data models
* Federation and syndication
* Web storage and management of annotations
* Client side APIs and methods for the implementation of annotation systems
* Practical experience with annotation systems
* Annotation of data

If you are interested in presenting, please submit a position paper by or
statement of interest by 28 February 2014.

See additional Workshop details and submission instructions:

The Workshop is collocated with I Annotate 2014 [1], and hosted by
Hypothes.is [2].
