Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
[This announcement will be forwarded to W3C group chairs]

The W3C is pleased to announce the re-chartering of the WebAssembly 
Working Group:

The group is chartered to continue through 29 November 2025.

To have your organization join or re-join the group, use the following form:

If your organization currently has participants in the group, please 
note that
you will need to re-join the group — because the charter adds a new 
with licensing obligations under the W3C Patent Policy. This Call for
Participation triggers the start of the 45 days grace period to re-join:

Please consider diversity when choosing participants from your 
organization to
join W3C groups. Representation from a wider group of people, especially 
from under-represented groups, is vital for creating web standards that 
meet the
needs of the wider web community.

The charter adds the option for the group to develop a new deliverable 
for the
WebAssembly Component Model, which will define a standard, portable, 
finely-sandboxed, cross-language, compositional module called a “component”,
layered on top of the WebAssembly Core Specification.

The mission of the group continues to be: To standardize a size-efficient,
load-time-efficient format and execution environment — allowing 
compilation to
the web with consistent behavior across a variety of implementations.

Luke Wagner (Fastly) and Derek Schuff (Google) continue as the group chairs.

Michael[tm] Smith is the W3C staff contact for the group (0.1 FTE).

More information about the group can be found on the group home page:
