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.
Earlier this month, the W3C staff proposed that the eGovernment Interest Group be re-chartered and a new Working Group be formed to create W3C Recommendations for Government Linked Data (GLD).
For more details, see the Activity Proposal. Members of the W3C Advisory Committee are encouraged to provide feedback before 29 April using WBS.
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.
