W3C Workshop on the Role of Mobile Technologies in Fostering Social Development — 28 February 2008

W3C is proud to announce the organization of a public Workshop on the Role of Mobile Technologies in Fostering Social Development.

We are currently in the process of launching a new Interest group on the topic of using mobile phones and Web technologies in socio-economic development projects in Developing Countries. This workshop will serve as input to this future group, which will aim at identifying the key challenges of mobile Web access in Developing Countries and the most promising way to resolve them.

It is also a follow-up of a first similar event we organized in December 2006 in Bangalore (W3C workshop on the Mobile Web in Developing Countries)
