Digital Publication Community Group
This Community Group closed on 5 December 2013. For discussion on this topic, please refer to the Digital Publishing Interest Group: http://www.w3.org/dpub/IG/
The initial aim of the Digital Publication Community Group will be to determine if W3C should invest more heavily in digital publication, and if so, what role it should play. The CG will establish and strengthen active liaisons with existing digital publishing fora, such as the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) which oversees the ePUB specification, as well as digital publishers and distributors of all types.
The Digital Publication Community Group will also explore the idea of one or more workshop on the topic, and provide a forum for open discussions on the future of digital publishing, specifically:
* reducing market fragmentation
* describing traditional and emerging publishing workflows, from the technology perspective
* creating scenarios and requirements to drive future standardization in W3C Working Groups, including layout, internationalization, security, accessibility, content protection, metadata, and vocabularies.
This group will not publish Specifications.
