At CES 2017, W3C is proud to present its 2016 activities across a
broad spectrum of industries and technologies. Come meet and discuss -
we are in Suite #313 at the Westgate Hotel. In the meantime, check
below the hot topics we are working on!
Ever seen before? - Virtual reality
Virtual Reality (VR) is the next frontier for immersive entertainment
experiences. At a recent W3C Workshop on Web and Virtual Reality, more
than 70 organizations came together to demonstrate the benefits that
that Web can bring to VR ecosystem. Learn more

The Web in your car! - W3C Automotive
The W3C Web and Automotive activities include a standards-track group
doing the technical specifications, and a Web and Automotive Business
Group that identifies use cases and requirements for potential new
standards work for vehicles. W3C has enhanced its collaborations with
Auto industry associations such as the OMA and the GENIVI Alliance.

The Web of things
Smart cars, smart cities, healthcare and smart manufacturing are already
leading the way in IoT. But interoperability remains a
challenge. For the past two years, W3C has been working to define
use cases and requirements to define global standards for an
abstraction layer for the Internet of Things (IoT) - this is the
Web of Things, which will enable open markets of services embracing
different platforms and standards. Come meet with Dave Raggett to learn more.
Checkout! - Payments
Consumers will streamline their checkout with W3C standards as early
implementations of the Payment Request API are beginning to appear. In
addition, other communities within W3C are incubating ideas around
interledger payments, verifiable credentials, digital offers,
blockchain and the Web, hardware-based secure services, and paid
content models. Learn more
or meet with Alan Bird.
Are you secured? - Web Authentication
There is a long-standing need to replace the User Name / Password
approach to security. The W3C work aims to improve security against
phishing and interception attacks by delivering a standard Web API for
strong cryptographic authentication. This work started from a Member
Submission of FIDO 2.0 from participants in the FIDO Alliance. Learn more or meet
on site with Wendy Seltzer.

Web; the API is the best option to guarantee a smooth user experience of
