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.

eGov at W3C Technical Plenary Week (TPAC)

November 17, 2010

Two weeks ago, we held a series of discussions of eGovernment topics at the W3C Technical Plenary and Advisory Committee meeting (TPAC) in Lyon, France.

The first day consisted of a broad ranging discussion across eGovernment issues, lent some shape by presentations from W3C staff members. Some of the topics provoking the most discussion were licensing, privacy, open government data, identity, and eGov outreach.

The second day was focused on Government Linked Data (GLD). In the morning, thanks to the presence of key participants in these efforts, we had presentations on GLD efforts in the UK, Spain, France, and Germany. In the afternoon, we worked through a list of possible work items for a proposed W3C Working Group in this area. That work should emerge as a draft charter in the coming weeks.
