Call for Participation in Metaverse Interoperability Community Group

The Metaverse Interoperability Community Group is also known as “The Open Metaverse Interoperability Group”, “OMIgroup”, or simply just “OMI”. The group was founded in 2021, to discover, champion, and co-create protocols for Metaverse Interoperability.

Our mission is to bridge virtual worlds by designing and promoting protocols for identity, social graphs, inventory, and more. You can get involved directly on our Github or by checking out our website,

In order to join the W3C group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group. Our github and discord are open communities. The group works in working groups which meet at various times to accommodate for international participation. The main OMI gathering is every Wednesday at 17:00 UTC (in winter, and 16:00 UTC in the summer)  in the OMI: Open Metaverse Interoperability Group on Discord.

This is a community initiative, originally proposed on 2021-04-23 by Robert Long, Jesse Alton, and Evo Heyning. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels. If you are working on a draft protocol, please reach out as we have a simple process for reviewing and ratifying new standards for experimentation. Let’s build the open metaverse, together.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
