W3C opened today registration for its first ever W3C Publishing Summit to be held 9-10 November 2017 in San Francisco, California, co-located with the W3C’s Technical Plenary and Advisory Committee meetings (TPAC 2017), and calls for speakers by 15 July 2017. The inaugural W3C Publishing Summit will show how publishers are using today's Web technologies to make publications more effective and workflows more efficient.

W3C launched last week its new Publishing Working Group, just a few months following the combination of IDPF and W3C, with a mission to provide the necessary technologies on the Open Web Platform to make the combination of traditional publishing and the Web complete in terms of accessibility, usability, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, and reliable cross referencing.
