At this year’s 19th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010 – Raleigh, NC, USA), W3C will organize two “camps”: the “HTML 5 camp” and the “Linked Open Data (LOD) camp” (29 and 30 April 2010). The “camp” format of the W3C Track, first adopted in Madrid in 2009, received positive feedback and so we are continuing, and improving, that format.
Each camp is one day. The morning sessions will feature talks from experts and surprise guests. In the afternoon of each session, the participants themselves will choose the topics they wish to discuss during the breakouts.
Wikis are available to submit topics of discussion in advance. There is one wiki per camp: LODCampW3CTrack and HTML5campW3CTrack. Apart from technical topics, we are also looking for lightning talks (very short presentations) proposals: anything from announcements, forward thinking ideas, controversial statements, observations, short demos, etc. Note too that the breakout session outcomes will be recorded in the same wikis.
So, if you’re planning to attend the WWW conference, please register through the WWW2010 online registration system and let’s W3Ccamp there!
