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 eGovernment Interest Group will hold its second face-to-face meeting at The American Institute of Architects in Washington, DC( USA) on 12-13 March 2009. The meeting agenda is being currently drafted and sessions will include discussion about Open Government Data, Participation and Citizen Engagement and Use of Social Media in Governments among others. Please, see the meeting page to learn more about the meeting and how to participate.
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.
