How to Participate
We welcome global participation in Publishing@W3C activities from any organization interested in joining the conversation about the future of publishing. For those interested in maintaining EPUB 3 technical requirements and advancing further adoption, we encourage you to join the new EPUB 3 Community Group which is free and open to all. Simply go there to sign up.
The focal point of conversations for the future of publishing will take place in the newly formed Publishing Business Group. Participation in the Publishing Business Group has a modest annual fee, quite similar to the former IDPF annual dues. To join the Publishing Business Group, please sign up here. Note: For IDPF members in good standing, participation in the Publishing Business Group is included as part of the Transitional Publishing Industry (TPI) membership. For more information about the Publishing Business Group or TPI, please contact Alan Bird <email@example.com>.
Of course, organizations may also become regular members of W3C will all the benefits that enable you to participate in any W3C group for an annual feel. To become a W3C member, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
W3C Groups Relevant for Publishing
There are many areas of technical work at W3C in which the publishing community is already participating. Among these are the Digital Publishing Interest Group, the CSS Working Group, and Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group. Participation in Interest and Working Groups is open to regular members of W3C.
There are a number of groups working on technologies that will also be of interest and the publishing roadmap evolves including Video, Audio, Graphics, Web Payments to name a few.
