On 10 September, 2014 the German/Austrian Office of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) will celebrate its annual W3C Day in Berlin. This year the event will focus on the extension of W3C’s standardisation activities with regard to several economic sectors and industries.
Based on the individual interests of the participants, the event will focus on specific industries and fields that are of high relevance for the German and Austrian markets, such as:
- Automotive and Web Platform
- Web of Things
- Digital Publishing
- Web and TV
- The Web and Mobile Devices
- Web Payments
By concentrating on currently relevant economic sectors and their specific requirements, the World Wide Web Consortium is emphasising the importance of establishing new standardisation activities for these sectors. The event will trigger and increase intense national and international discussions on standards for specialised technologies for vertical markets and on their integration in the base technologies of the World Wide Web.
We invite W3C members as well as all other interested organisations and companies to participate in the event and to contribute to W3C Day by giving brief presentations, showcases, or software demonstrations.
Additionally, we invite you to get together in small face-to-face meetings with Jeff Jaffe (CEO of W3C) and Prof. Wolfgang Wahlster (CEO of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, DFKI, host of the German/Austrian W3C Office) as well as with technical experts of the W3C staff to pursue deeper discussion, follow up on questions, and discuss possibilities for cooperation.
Please sign up for the free event. Registration will close on 29 August, 2014.
The programme and venue of the event will be published soon on the German/Austrian W3C Office’s website (http://www.w3c.de). Although the majority of presentations will be in German, contributions in English are also welcome.
We are happy to answer any questions concerning this event. Just send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
