Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,
Web Applications Working Group members,

The Web Applications Working Group, whose charter expires until 31 July 
2016, is now closed.

The group has been working since 2008 on [Specifications] that enable 
improved client-side application development on the Web, including 
specifications both for application programming interfaces (APIs) for 
client-side development and for markup vocabularies for describing and 
controlling client-side application behaviour.

On 10 October 2015, W3C launched the Web Platform Working Group as the 
result of merging the Web Applications Working Group and the HTML 
Working Group, thus terminating the Web Applications Working Group.

We would like to invite members to join the Web Platform Working Group 
to avoid being disrupted if you're currently part of the Web 
Applications Working Group [Register].

The W3C would like to thank the group’s co-chairs, Art Barstow (Invited 
Expert) and Charles McCathieNevile (Yandex), and all the participants in 
the group for their efforts over the last seven years.

This announcement follows section 5.2.8 of the Process Document:

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Philippe Le Hegaret, Interaction Domain Lead,
Yves Lafon and Xiaoqian Wu, Web Applications Working Group Team Contacts;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
