W3C @ WWW2011 in India: Open Web Platform for All

W3C Invites Discussion on Web and Open Society, Mobile Apps, 
Multilingual and Accessible Content, and More

http://www.w3.org/ -- 16 March 2011 -- The Web has become a critical 
resource that is transforming all industries and society at large. This 
year, W3C invites all WWW2011 participants to meet at the Hyderabad 
International Convention Centre (HICC) to discuss the regional and 
global impact of this expanding Open Web Platform for application 
development.

What are the keys to building a Web that supports Open Society? How are 
the Web and Television converging? What are the advantages of Web 
applications on mobile devices over native apps? What are some of the 
design challenges for augmented reality on mobile phones with respect to 
accessibility? Participants can discuss these topics and others with the 
W3C through several opportunities:

     * Vision. Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the Web, 
delivers a keynote on the topic of Designing the Web for an Open 
Society. The talk takes place on 31 March at 8:30 am in the H-04-Plenary 
Hall.
     * Technology. This year's W3C track addresses the conference theme 
of "Web for all" in two ways: people and devices. On 30 March, 
participants address the accessible and multilingual Web. On 31 March, 
participants discuss Web applications on mobile devices. Each track (in 
room H-01) combines speakers with topics to be determined by the 
attendees. If you are planning to attend, W3C welcomes your suggestions 
for additional topics at any time. Please see the track wikis for more 
information (WebforAll wiki and MobiWebApp wiki) W3C also watches for 
suggestions on twitter (#w3ctrack).
     * Industry. Join W3C and representatives of the ICT Industry for a 
discussion about standards in India. The meeting, organized by the W3C 
India Office, takes place at the IIIT in Hyderabad, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. 
Learn more about follow-up meetings in Delhi on 4-5 April.
     * Support. In addition to discussions with W3C staff and other 
people in the W3C community, participants can show support for W3C 
efforts by participating in a partnership program.

Meet with W3C at WWW2011 to learn about and help shape the Open Web 
Platform.

The W3C track was organized with the support of the W3C India Office and 
the MobiWebApp EU project.
