Call for Participation in Service Discovery Community Group

The Service Discovery Community Group has been launched:

The internet has several service discovery mechanisms, such as SRV records and mDNS which are not exposed to web clients.

The purpose of this CG will be to define a browser API allowing service discovery via these and other relevant mechanisms.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2023-02-08 by Peter Linss. The following people supported its creation: Peter Linss, Bob Wyman, Laker Turner, Daniel Lipton, Scott Corzine. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

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
