Participants will investigate strategies toward better privacy protection on the Web that are effective and lead to benefits in the near term. This includes discussing basic privacy UI features that will, on the long run, create a user experience that loops with user expectations. We expect certain controls and dashboards in a car. Perhaps we can create a similar clarity for the privacy dashboard of our devices.
The Workshop focus will be on users: user experience, user behavior and how we can offer controls that provide the necessary transparency of privacy-affecting interactions. We will also discuss how developers can meet users' privacy needs on the Web, including what APIs are necessary for user privacy.

Many data-driven applications have geospatial information at their core. Very often the common factor across multiple data sets is the location data, and maps are crucial in visualizing correlations between data sets that may otherwise be hidden. How can geographic information best be integrated with other data on the Web? How can we discover that different facts in different data sets relate to the same place, especially when 'place' can be expressed in different ways and at different levels of granularity? It's this desire to work with multiple data sets in different formats about different topics and link those with the powerful technologies used in geospatial information systems that is behind the linking geospatial data workshop.
The Vancouver IETF plenary concluded that pervasive monitoring represents an attack on the Internet. Pervasive monitoring targets protocol data that we also need for network manageability and security. This data is captured and correlated with other data. There is an open problem as to how to enhance protocols so as to maintain network manageability and security but still limit data capture and correlation.
The overall goal of the workshop is to steer IETF and W3C work so as to be able to improve or
strengthen the Internet in the face of pervasive monitoring. A workshop report in the form of an IAB RFC will be produced after the event.

HTML5 has paved the way for development of rich web applications and has been widely adopted by application developers. Ease of user-interaction (user experience) with applications has become a prime focus world-wide, thanks to the proliferation of new devices and platforms including mobile phones, tablet devices, eBook readers, and gaming platforms. In addition, traditional platforms such as TV's, sudio systems, and automobiles are rapidly becoming capable of much more intelligent interaction than in the past. User-interaction through speech, touch, gesture and swipe has become the key differentiator in the success of popular applications today. One of the key advantages of the W3C Multimodal Architecture (MMI) is its suitability for simple to sophisticated applications across devices in creating compelling user experiences, leveraging advances in i/o methodologies, and supporting inter-operability among multiple vendors' products.

Linked Data technology also offers a huge potential for enterprise applications, e.g., for the integration and the management of data within and across enterprises. The distributed nature of Linked Data enables loose-coupling for data sharing within and between organizations. With Linked Data, enterprises have a unique opportunity to cooperate in their use of shared data without the costs of extensive coordination. Sharing a common data model (RDF) allows us to establish design patterns for providing dereferencable resource identifiers, migrating and cloning data as business needs and data authorities evolve. These will address issues such as data distribution, query federation, access control, encryption and signature, legal problems around the access of datasets and business models in using open or closed linked data. Please join the W3C Linked Data community at this workshop to air requirements, share solutions and develop a healthy and scalable Linked Enterprise Data infrastructure.

The Web is now critical infrastructure and, as such, requires mechanisms that foster trust. For critical enterprise activity, effective government engagement, and sensitive social information accessed over the Web, a higher level of identity assurance, privacy protection, and security is required, and client-side technologies like browsers have an important role to play. There is a pressing need for trustworthy, widely-applicable digital identity management. W3C is therefore organizing a Workshop on Identity in the Browser. Participants will investigate strategies to facilitate the development and deployment of improved identity authentication and authorization technologies across the Web. Also included in the workshop will be explorations into the operational, policy, and legal issues that must be addressed by the solutions.

Tracking (e.g., for behavioral advertising) has come to the forefront recently as part of the overall Web privacy conversation in the broader Web and policy community. Several software vendors (including Microsoft, Mozilla, and Google) are offering measures that are intended to permit users to opt out of this tracking, or to prevent tracking by Web sites that are known to engage in these practices. Similar technology is deployed in a number of plugins (including NoScript, AdBlock plus, TACO, and PrivacyChoice). As part of ongoing efforts in the area of user privacy on the Web, W3C is organizing a Workshop on Web Tracking and User Privacy.

Who we are (e.g. our thoughts, dreams, feelings, DNA sequence), what we own (such as financial property), what we have experienced and how we behave (audio/visual/olfactory transcripts), and how we can be reached (location, endpoint identifiers) are among the most personal pieces of information about us. More and more of this information is being digitized and made available electronically. The question for us therefore is: How can we ensure that architectures and technologies for the Internet, including the World Wide Web, are developed in a way that respects usersâ€™ privacy?

The demand for access to applications, video, and other network services continues to grow. The Web platform itself continues its expansion to support mobile devices, television, home appliances, in-car systems, and more consumer electronics. To meet the growing demand, the Web platform of the future will require smarter integration of non-PC devices with Web technology so that both hardware and software vendors can provide richer Web applications on various devices at lower costs.
Hosted by Vodafone
As the Web advances toward becoming an application development platform that addresses needs previously met by native applications, work proceeds on APIs to access information that was previously not available to Web developers. The broad availability of possibly sensitive data collected through location sensors and other facilities in a Web browser is just one example of the broad new privacy challenges that the Web faces today. Earlier approaches to address privacy issues for the Web, especially through policy languages, have not seen broad implementation in current-generation Web browsers.
This workshop serves to investigate strategies toward better privacy protection on the Web that are effective and lead to benefits in the near term.

The goal of the workshop is to understand the limitations of the current W3C language model in order to develop a more comprehensive model. We plan to collect and analyze use cases and prioritize requirements that ultimately will be used to identify improvements to the W3C language model. Just as W3C developed SSML 1.1 to broaden the languages for which SSML is useful, this effort will result in improved support for language capabilities that are unsupported today.
Augmented reality (AR) is a long standing topic in its own right but it has not been developed on the Web platform. As mobile devices become more powerful and feature-rich, the workshop will explore the possible convergence of AR and the Web. The objective of this Workshop is to provide a single forum for researchers and technologists to discuss the state of the art for AR on the Web, particularly the mobile platform, and what role standardization should play for Open Augmented Reality.

Web application developers face increasing difficulties due to wide variations in device capabilities, in the details of the standards they support, the need to support assistive technologies for accessibility, the demand for richer user interfaces, the suites of programming languages and libraries, and the need to contain costs and meet challenging schedules during the development and maintenance of applications. Research work on model-based design of context-sensitive user interfaces has sought to address the challenge of reducing the costs for developing and maintaining multi-target user interfaces through a layered architecture that separates out different concerns. Workshop participants will collectively help to identify opportunities and challenges for new open standards in the area, particularly concerning the semantics and syntaxes of task, abstract and concrete user interface models. In addition, workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss the role of model-based approaches in relation to other standards, for instance, XForms, ANSI/CEA-2018 and MDA, and the relationship to work on standards for Web delivery including HTML5 and browser scripting APIs.
Hosted by W3C and Primelife Project
This workshop brings together worldwide research and user communities to explore evolving application scenarios for access control technologies, such as XACML. Results form a number of recent European research projects in the grid, cloud computing, and privacy areas show overlapping use cases for these technologies that extend beyond classical intra-enterprise applications. At this workshop, we will explore commonalities between different application scenarios, and standardization needs (at W3C and elsewhere) above and beyond the technology substrate that exists today.
