Dear Advisory Committee representative,
Chairs,

The Web of Things Interest Group charter [1] is hereby extended until 30 
June 2019.

The mission of the Web of Things Interest Group is to counter the 
fragmentation of the Internet of Things by introducing a Web-based 
abstraction layer capable of interconnecting existing Internet of Things 
platforms, devices and cloud services and complementing available 
standards. The group aims to reduce costs through the global reach of 
Web standards, to enable open markets of services, and to unleash the 
power of the network effect.

The group is currently drafting a new charter:

Additionally, Matthias Kovatsch's affiliation has changed from Siemens 
to Huawei and he is re-appointed as co-Chair for the WoT Interest Group 
and Working Group. Kazuo Kajimoto (Panasonic) and Michael McCool (Intel) 
remain as co-Chairs for the Working Group [2].

Yongjing Zhang (Huawei) recently indicated his intent to step down from 
his role as co-Chair of the Interest Group. We would like to express our 
thanks to Yongjing for his past service as co-Chair of the group.

Information on how to participate in the Interest Group is available 
[3]. More information about the Web of Things Interest Group can be 
found on its home page [4] and wiki page [5].

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Kaz Ashimura <ashimura@w3.org> or Dave Raggett <dsr@w3.org>, Staff Contacts.
