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.
The main outcome of the eGoverment Interest Group first face to face meeting was the characterization of the topic areas in which the Group is conducting its work. In order to identify the most common issues associated with those areas, the Group is compiling use cases that will serve as basis for the first draft of the Group Note and to draft requirements. Although compilation of use cases will be an ongoing task for the Group, use cases to be considered for the first draft should be sent no later than 20 December 2008. This call is fully open to the public, so even if you are not an official participant of the Group, you are welcome to post your use case to the Group’s public mailing list (archives) following the template.
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.
