W3C to Examine Privacy Challenges of Advanced Web Technologies in Workshop

Author(s) and publish date


The broad availability of possibly sensitive data collected through location sensors and other facilities in a Web browser illustrates the broad new privacy challenges Web users face today. For example, new APIs in Web browsers running on a mobile device provide Web applications with access to GPS data or a camera. W3C invites the community to examine these privacy challenges at a Workshop on Privacy for Advanced Web APIs, 12-13 July 2010 in London, England, and hosted by Vodafone. Workshop participants will review recent experience and investigate strategies for effective, near-term privacy protection on the Web. Anyone who submits a position paper following the guidelines may participate, space permitting. There is no fee to participate and W3C Membership is not required. Paper submissions are due 1 June. For more information, see the Workshop home page.
