Upcoming Workshop: Digital Marketing
13 March 2015 | Archive
W3C announced today the W3C Workshop on Digital Marketing, 29-30 April 2015, in Tampa, Florida (USA). The event is hosted by Nielsen.
Digital Marketing and the ecosystem surrounding it are growing at an unprecedented pace as consumers take advantage of new devices, features, and content on the Web; our core focus. As the Open Web Platform and technologies such as HTML5 continue to expand and offer new functionalities, brands, interactive marketers, content publishers and third party providers are calling W3C’s attention to gaps and challenges.
Our goal is to better understand which changes to the Open Web Platform would help improve interoperability, increase efficiencies, enable new innovations, and enhance communications. Topics of discussion include Security, and interaction with security measures; Data-gathering and measurement; performance, etc. W3C membership is not required to participate. The event is open to all. All participants are required to submit a position paper by 6 April 2015.

The RDFa Working Group has published four Edited Recommendations for RDFa 1.1, namely HTML+RDFa 1.1, RDFa Core 1.1, RDFa Lite 1.1, and XHTML+RDFa 1.1. The HTML+RDFa 1.1 Recommendation had to be updated now that both RDF 1.1 Concepts and HTML5 are Recommendations, in order to resolve dependencies and finalize the pending normative status of some HTML+RDFa 1.1 features. Using the opportunity of a republication of this document, the few editorial errata in all the RDFa 1.1 documents have also been taken care of. The Working Group has also published a new version of the RDFa 1.1 Primer Working Group Note. Learn more about the Data Activity.
