    Abstract:

    The World Wide Web Consortium, W3C, is known for standards like HTML and CSS but there's a lot more to it than that. Mobile, automotive, publishing, graphics, TV and more. Then there are horizontal issues like privacy, security, accessibility and internationalisation. Many of these assume that there is an underlying data infrastructure to power applications.

    In this session, W3C's Data Activity Lead, Phil Archer, will describe the overall vision for better use of the Web as a platform for sharing data and how that translates into recent, current and possible future work. What's the difference between using the Web as a data platform and as a glorified USB stick? Why does it matter? And what makes a standard a standard anyway?

    Streamlining Web Payments (panel)

    by Ian Jacobs

    Abstract:

    For many users, Web purchases can be a frustrating experience, especially on mobile devices. Poor user experiences such as typing information again and again or following complex steps to payment lead all too often to error and high rates of cart abandonment.

    W3C has begun to work on a standard API to help streamline checkout. This API will enable superior user experiences and enable merchants to take advantage of more secure payment methods to reduce liability and protect sensitive user information.

    In this Webinar we will discuss the goals of this standards effort, the emerging architecture for the payment request API, and the anticipated impact on merchants and other e-Commerce players. We will also introduce other payment-related activities and discussions at W3C that will affect merchants and other stakeholders in the global payment ecosystem.
