   Selected speakers and session topics have already been unveiled
   for the W3C Publishing Summit, and the [9]program committee
   invites submission of speaker and session proposals by 15 July
   2017. The conference will show how publishers of all types are
   using today's Web technologies, including EPUB, to make their
   publications more effective and their workflows more efficient,
   and cover developments coming soon in Web publications, EPUB
   and the overall Open Web Platform.

   Additionally, the W3C has launched a new Publishing Working
   Group, a standards-track group formed just a few months
   following the combination of IDPF and W3C. The Publishing
   Working Group's mission is to provide the necessary
   technologies on the Open Web Platform to make the combination
   of traditional publishing and the web complete in terms of
   accessibility, usability, portability, distribution, archiving,
   offline access, and reliable cross referencing.

   "We are excited to be on track with our roadmap for
   [10]Publishing@W3C," said Bill McCoy, W3C Publishing Champion.
   "Building on the best of IDPF’s long-standing digital
   publishing conferences, the new W3C Publishing Summit will be a
   critical forum for the global publishing community to discuss
   and learn about key issues in digital transformation, including
   how Web technologies are shaping publishing today, tomorrow and
   beyond. The new Working Group is a major step forward, both for
   the convergence of EPUB and Web technologies and in the
   integration of the IDPF and W3C communities to accelerate our
   work to lead the Web to its full potential."
