Some Ways to Contribute Ideas for New Work
W3C encourages people to propose new ideas for the Web. Some of the mechanisms set up to foster these ideas include:
Work in Scope for an Existing Group
- When new work falls within the scope of an existing group (e.g., as specified by a Working Group Charter), a group participant may contribute the work directly to the group.
Work Requiring a New Group
Working or Interest Group
- W3C Working and Interest Groups are created by the W3C Director according to Chapter 6 of the W3C Process. The Director proposes charters to the W3C Membership and where there is support, the Director creates the group.

Community or Business Group
- Anybody may propose a Community or Business Group. See the CG and BG home page for more information.
