Welcome! The World Wide Web Consortium invites all who work within governments or those who work or engage with governments to participate in the many opportunities sponsored by W3C and the Web community.
W3C's eGovernment Activity currently offers speakers, discussion forums, educational information, and guidelines focused on helping governments to publish data in open, standards-based formats so that information can be more easily accessed on the Web.
W3C Advisory Committee Representatives have just received a Proposal to create a new eGovernment Activity. This proposal includes a draft charter for the eGovernment Interest Group.
As part of ensuring that the community is aware of proposed work at W3C, this draft charter is public during the Advisory Committee review period. W3C invites public comments through 19 May 2008 on the proposed charter. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, which has a public archive.
Other than comments sent in formal responses by W3C Advisory Committee Representatives, W3C cannot guarantee a response to comments. If you work for a W3C Member, please coordinate your comments with your Advisory Committee Representative. For example, you may wish to make public comments via that list and have your Advisory Committee Representative refer to it from his or her formal review comments.
If you should have any questions or need further information, you can also contact me directly.
eGovernment is the use of the Web and other information technologies by governments to interact with the citizenry, between departments and divisions, and with other governments.
