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.
In Decmeber 2013 the eGov Activity was subsumed by the
W3C Data Activity. That activity has a larger scope encompassing eGovernment, open data and more.
