Domain Names and Persistence, IDCC11

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-11-08 , Tapahtuma alkaa: 2011-12-08 , uutislähde )

On 8 December 2011 at the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC), W3C is co-organizing with the Digital Curation Centre a workshop on Domain Names and Persistence, in Bristol, UK. The vulnerability of any digital material to unexpected or unintended changes in Internet domain name assignment, and hence to the outcome of domain name resolution, is widely recognised. The fact that domain names are not permanently assigned is regularly cited as one of the main reasons why http: URIs cannot be regarded as persistent identifiers over the long term. This workshop is intended to bring together interested parties to explore the dimensions of the problem and possible directions in which to look for solutions. Learn about related work by the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG).

Next week, the W3C community meets in Santa Clara, California for TPAC 2011, W3C's annual face-to-face gathering to coordinate both technical and strategic directions for the organization. We anticipate more than 350 people will participate in Working Group meetings, an Advisory Committee meeting, and a Plenary Day organized this year as a participant-driven camp. In addition to two plenary sessions (on Web and Television, and Web Content Interoperability), participants will discuss a variety of breakout topics. Although participation in TPAC is limited to those already in W3C groups, the TPAC proceedings are public and will be made available shortly after the meeting. Follow the meeting on social networking sites with tag #tpac.

WebRTC 1.0: Real-time Communication Between Browsers, ensimmäinen luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-27 , uutislähde )

The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group has published he First Public Working Draft of WebRTC 1.0: Real-time Communication Between Browsers. This document defines a set of APIs that enable video conferencing from within an Open Web Platform application. These APIs allow local media, including audio and video, to be requested from a platform, media to be sent over the network to another browser or device implementing the appropriate set of real-time protocols, and media received from another browser or device to be processed and displayed locally. This specification is being developed in conjunction with a protocol specification developed by the IETF RTCWEB group. Learn more about the Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.

Touch Events version 1, viimeinen kommentoitava versio

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-27 , uutislähde )

The Web Events Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Touch Events version 1. User Agents that run on terminals which provide touch input to use web applications typically use interpreted mouse events to allow users to access interactive web applications. However, these interpreted events, being normalized data based on the physical touch input, may not deliver the intended user experience. Native applications are capable of handling both cases with the provided system APIs. The Touch Events specification now provides a solution for Open Web Platform applications: the ability to directly handle touch events, and multiple touch points for enabled devices. Comments are welcome through 17 November. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

Unified Service Description Language, hautomotyöryhmän raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-27 , uutislähde )

The W3C Unified Service Description Language Incubator Group has published their final report. The mission of the Unified Service Description Language Incubator Group was to work on the already existing proposal for USDL in three directions: investigate similar approaches and relate them to USDL, reshape the specification to align it with W3C and feedback that was collected, and prove practical relevance by creating reference test cases by various partners. During the XG's lifetime, the group shifted the focus away from working on the language itself in order to better concentrate on use cases and adoption. The Incubator Group Report therefore contains a comprehensive overview and assessment of other languages, specifications and approaches that were considered to be related to USDL. The report also contains a description of our reference test cases and their implementations, a list of issues and ideas of improvement for the next version of USDL, and a statement from some partners about USDL. It concludes with the recommendation to follow up on the USDL specification in form of a Working Group, among others.

This publication is part of the Incubator Activity, a forum where W3C Members can innovate and experiment. This work is not on the W3C standards track.

Object Memory Modeling, hautomotyöryhmän raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-26 , uutislähde )

The W3C Object Memory Modeling Incubator Group has published their final report. This report summarizes the findings of the Object Memory Modeling Incubator Group. An XML-based object memory format is introduced, which allows for modeling of events or other information about individual physical artifacts, and which is designed to support data storage of those logs on so-called "smart labels" attached to the physical artifact. The group makes several recommendations concerning the future evolution of the object memory format at the W3C; these address connections to provenance modeling, the embedding of object memories in web pages, and potential benefits of an object memory API.

Web Storage, viimeinen kommentoitava luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Web Storage. This specification introduces two related mechanisms, similar to HTTP session cookies, for storing structured data on the client side. The first is designed for scenarios where the user is carrying out a single transaction, but could be carrying out multiple transactions in different windows at the same time. Cookies don't really handle this case well. To address this, this specification introduces the sessionStorage IDL attribute. Comments are welcome through 15 November. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

Library Linked Data, hautomotyöryhmän raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-25 , uutislähde )

The W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group has published their final report. In the report, the group characterized the current state of library data management, outlined the potential benefits of publishing library data as Linked Data, and formulated next-step recommendations for library standards bodies, data and systems designers, librarians and archivists, and library leaders. The report is supplemented by two more detailed reports. "Use Cases" describes library applications which showcase the benefits of adopting Semantic Web standards and Linked Data principles to publish library assets such as bibliographic data, concept schemes, and authority files. "Datasets, Value Vocabularies, and Metadata Element Sets" provides a snapshot of key resources available for creating library Linked Data today. The group moved several documents to the W3C's Semantic Web wiki and expects the discussion to continue on the public-lld mailing list, both of which are open to participation by all interested members of the public.

PROV Data Model and Abstract Syntax Notation, ensimmäinen luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-18 , uutislähde )

The Provenance Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of The PROV Data Model and Abstract Syntax Notation. PROV-DM is a core data model for provenance for building representations of the entities, people and processes involved in producing a piece of data or thing in the world. PROV-DM is domain-agnostic but with well-defined extensibility points allowing further domain-specific and application-specific extensions to be defined. It is accompanied by PROV-ASN, a technology-independent abstract syntax notation, which allows serializations of PROV-DM instances to be created for human consumption, which facilitates its mapping to concrete syntax, and which is used as the basis for a formal semantics.

Uusi työryhmä: Model-Based User Interfaces Working Group

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-17 , uutislähde )

W3C announces today the new Model-Based User Interfaces (MBUI) Working Group. The mission of the Model-Based UI Working Group is to develop standards as a basis for interoperability across authoring tools for context aware user interfaces for Web-based interactive applications. Application developers face increasing difficulties due to wide variations in device capabilities, in the details of the standards they support, the need to support assistive technologies for accessibility, the demand for richer user interfaces, the suites of programming languages and libraries, and the need to contain costs and meet challenging schedules during the development and maintenance of applications. The Model-Based UI Working Group will start from extensive experience with model-based user interface design solutions, and will provide a strong basis for interoperable authoring tools for interactive application front ends, with HTML5 as a key delivery platform. Learn more about the Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.

Uusi aktiviteetti: Web Testing

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-13 , uutislähde )

W3C announces the launch of a new Web Testing Activity. For years, W3C has been testing technologies independently in a variety of Working Groups. Each specification follows its own methods for testing the underlying technology and there has been minimal coordination between Working Groups on testing methods. Technologies such as HTML, CSS, and APIs must be tested in the same user agents, at times in combination. Therefore, as the number of technologies and the number of devices using them increase, it has become vital to quality on the Web that W3C take a broader view of testing. To this end, W3C has launched two groups. The Browser Testing and Tools Working Group will produce technologies for use in testing, debugging, and troubleshooting of Web applications running in Web browsers. The Web Testing Interest Group will develop and deploy testing mechanisms and collateral materials for testing of Web technologies across different devices (desktops, mobile, TV, etc.).

CSS Fonts Module Level 3, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-10-04 , uutislähde )

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a Working Draft of CSS Fonts Module Level 3. This specification describes how font properties are specified and how font resources are loaded dynamically. Font resources may be local, installed on the system on which a user agent is running, or downloadable. For local font resources descriptive information can be obtained directly from the font resource. For downloadable font resources (sometimes referred to as web fonts), the descriptive information is included with the reference to the font resource. Families of fonts typically don't contain a single face for each possible variation of font properties. The CSS font selection mechanism describes how to match a given set of CSS font properties to a given font face. Learn more about the Style Activity.

Ontology for Media Resources 1.0, alustava suositusehdotus

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-07-07 , uutislähde )

The Media Annotations Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation Ontology for Media Resources 1.0. This document defines the Ontology for Media Resources 1.0. The term "Ontology" is used in its broadest possible definition: a core vocabulary. The intent of this vocabulary is to bridge the different descriptions of media resources, and provide a core set of descriptive properties. This document defines a core set of metadata properties for media resources, along with their mappings to elements from a set of existing metadata formats. Besides that, the document presents a Semantic Web compatible implementation of the abstract ontology using RDF/OWL. The document is mostly targeted towards media resources available on the Web, as opposed to media resources that are only accessible in local repositories. See the group's Media Ontology Test Suite.

Semantic Sensor Network XG Final Report, hautomotyöryhmän raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-06-28 , uutislähde )

The W3C Semantic Sensor Network Incubator Group has published their final report. As networks of sensors become more commonplace there is a greater need for their management and querying to be assisted by standards and computer reasoning. Building on the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement services-based architecture and standards, including four description languages, the group produced ontologies for describing sensors and extended a language to support semantic annotations. The report lists use-cases and reviews existing ontologies leading to the selection of the SSN ontology, analyzes examples and semantic markup as well as mapping to existing standards. The report also includes a list of directions for future work in the context of Linked Sensor Data, or Semantic Internet of Things for work at the border of Internet of Things and Internet of Service. The group plans to create a W3C Community Group to focus on the maintenance and extension of the SSN Ontology.

This publication is part of the Incubator Activity, a forum where W3C Members can innovate and experiment. This work is not on the W3C standards track.

Cascading Style Sheets -standardi (CSS) edistää yhteentoimivuutta

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-06-07 , uutislähde )

W3C announced new levels of support today for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the language for adding style to Web content. W3C released an update to the core CSS standard, CSS 2.1, to reflect the current state of support for CSS features, and to serve as the stable foundation for future extensions. CSS has been in widespread use as an Open Web technology for more than a decade, but it took many years for implementations and the specification to converge. The collective efforts of the CSS Working Group, implementers, contributors to the CSS Test Suite, and the W3C CSS community have made interoperable CSS a reality for the Open Web. More than 9000 CSS tests have made it easier for designers to create style sheets that work across browsers, and across devices. "This publication crowns a long effort to achieve very broad interoperability," said Bert Bos, co-inventor of CSS and co-Editor of CSS 2.1." Now we can turn our attention to the cool features we've been itching to bring to the Web." The CSS Working Group also published two other Recommendations today: CSS Color Module Level 3 and A MathML for CSS Profile. Read the press release and testimonials, and learn more about Cascading Style Sheets.

Points of Interest Core, ensimmäinen luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-05-13 , uutislähde )

The Points of Interest Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of Points of Interest Core. In general terms, a "point of interest" is a location about which information is available. A POI can be as simple as a set of coordinates and an identifier, or more complex such as a three dimensional model of a building with names in various languages, information about open and closed hours, and a civic address. POI data has many uses including augmented reality browsers, location-based social networking games, geocaching, mapping, and navigation systems. This document describes a generic data model and one normative format. This format is based on XML and is likely insufficient to cover all POI use cases, therefore, it is expected that the data model will be mapped to other formats, such as JSON, GML, RDF, GeoRSS, or HTML.

Uusi W3C-työryhmä: Provenance Working Group; RDF Web Applications Working Group saa jatkoa

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-31 , uutislähde )

W3C announced today a new Provenance Working Group, whose mission is to support the widespread publication and use of provenance information of Web documents, data, and resources. The Working Group will publish W3C Recommendations that define a language for exchanging provenance information among applications. See the Provenance Working Group Charter for more information.

W3C also renewed the RDF Web Applications Working Group, formerly the RDFa Working Group. The mission of the group is to support the developing use of RDF for embedding and handling structured data in Web documents in general. The Working Group will publish W3C Recommendations to extend and enhance the currently published RDFa 1.0 documents, including an API, as well as a general RDF API aimed at ECMAScript. The Working Group will also support the HTML Working Group in its work on incorporating RDFa in HTML5 and XHTML5 (as a followup on the the currently published Working Draft for RDFa 1.0 in HTML5). See the RDF Web Applications Working Group Charter for more information, and read more about the Semantic Web.

RDFa Core 1.1, XHTML+RDFa 1.1, viimeinen kommentoitava luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-31 , uutislähde )

The RDFa Working Group has published Last Call Working Drafts of RDFa Core 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1. The current Web is primarily made up of an enormous number of documents that have been created using HTML. These documents contain significant amounts of structured data, which is largely unavailable to tools and applications. When publishers can express this data more completely, and when tools can read it, a new world of user functionality becomes available, letting users transfer structured data between applications and web sites, and allowing browsing applications to improve the user experience.

RDFa Core is a specification for attributes to express structured data in any markup language. XHTML+RDFa 1.1 is one such language; it is a superset of XHTML 1.1 intended for authors who want to create XHTML Family documents that embed rich semantic markup. There was a very wide review of the First Last Call for RDFa 1.1 by key members of various standards communities, large companies and independent Web developer communities. Due to the large amount of solid feedback by the various respondents, numerous improvements and enhancements were made to RDFa 1.1 to reflect the desires of the developer community.

Comments are welcome through 21 April. Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity.

Federated Social Web Europe

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-24 , Tapahtuma alkaa: 2011-06-03 , uutislähde )

Social networking has transformed the Web. However, most Social Web applications today limit relationships to those with accounts in the same system. As with many other communications tools (telephone, email, Web) people will ultimately prefer Social Web applications without such barriers, where anyone can communicate seamlessly with anyone else, whatever application they are using. W3C will be exploring how to achieve "One Social Web" at Federated Social Web Europe.

The conference, which takes place 3-5 June in Berlin, Germany, is made possible with the help of the PrimeLife project and is hosted by the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung. It follows the 2010 Federated Social Web Summit and is designed to bring together diverse communities interested in Social Web, identity, and privacy. The agenda will include talks, presentation of position papers, and opportunities for on-the-ground agenda building. Participants are invited to submit position papers, due 2 May. Proposals received after that date may be added to the part of the agenda determined at the event.

Media Fragments URI 1.0, viimeinen kommentoitava luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-17 , uutislähde )

The Media Fragments Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Media Fragments URI 1.0. Audio and video resources on the World Wide Web are currently treated as "foreign" objects, which can only be embedded using a plugin that is capable of decoding and interacting with the media resource. Specific media servers are generally required to provide for server-side features such as direct access to time offsets into a video without the need to retrieve the entire resource. Support for such media fragment access varies between different media formats and inhibits standard means of dealing with such content on the Web. This specification provides for a media-format independent, standard means of addressing media fragments on the Web using URIs. Comments are welcome through 10 April. Learn more about the Video in the Web Activity.

W3C-workshop: Web Tracking and Privacy

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-03 , Tapahtuma alkaa: 2011-04-28 , uutislähde )

Tracking (e.g., for behavioral advertising) has come to the forefront recently as part of the overall Web privacy conversation in the broader Web and policy community. Several software vendors (including Microsoft, Mozilla, and Google) are offering measures that are intended to permit users to opt out of this tracking, or to prevent tracking by Web sites that are known to engage in these practices. Similar technology is deployed in a number of plugins (including NoScript, AdBlock plus, TACO, and PrivacyChoice). As part of ongoing efforts in the area of user privacy on the Web, W3C is organizing a Workshop on Web Tracking and User Privacy, 28-29 April 2011 in Princeton, New Jersey (USA). Topics are likely to include: whether a do not track proposal is advisable or other means might accomplish the same goals; benefits and challenges of browser-bade approaches; other approaches to better user privacy in the face of frequent online tracking. Anyone may participate in this Workshop; a position paper is required and space is limited. Position papers are due 25 March 2011 but expressions of interest sooner than that are appreciated. Many thanks to the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University for hosting the meeting. Please see the the Call for Participation for further details.

Describing Linked Datasets with the VoID Vocabulary, muistio

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2011-03-03 , uutislähde )

The Semantic Web Interest Group has published a Group Note of Describing Linked Datasets with the VoID Vocabulary. Semantic Web and other technologies have made it easy and beneficial to publish and share datasets. When someone wants to select a dataset, one of the fundamental questions is, what does it offer? There are datasets such as DBpedia that cover quite a range of topics, whereas there are others that only talk about a certain domain (books, places, etc.). VoID provides a bridge between the publishers and users of datasets. VoID addresses a variety of needs, ranging from data discovery to cataloging and archiving of datasets. Most importantly, VoID helps users find the right data for their tasks. Today's publication provides advice about deployment of dataset descriptions and discusses the discovery as well.

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) vahvisti tänään verkkosisällön saavutettavuusohjeiden virallisen suomenkielisen käännöksen. Käännöstyötä johtivat Tampereen teknillinen yliopisto, Hypermedialaboratorio ja W3C Suomen toimisto.

Verkkosisällön saavutettavuusohjeet 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines [WCAG] 2.0) kattaa laajan joukon suosituksia, joiden avulla verkkosisällön saavutettavuutta voidaan parantaa. Ohjeiden noudattaminen tekee sisällön saavutettavaksi laajalle joukolle ihmisiä, joilla on vammoja tai rajoitteita. Tällaisia ovat mm. sokeus ja heikkonäköisyys, kuurous ja huonokuuloisuus, oppimisvaikeudet, kognitiiviset rajoitteet, liikuntakyvyn rajoitteet, puhevaikeudet, valoherkkyys sekä näiden yhdistelmät. Ohjeiden noudattaminen tekee verkkosisällöstä usein myös yleisesti käytettävämpää.

Käännös tehtiin yhteistyössä suomalaisten sidosryhmien kanssa. Työtä tukivat Liikenne- ja viestintäministeriö sekä Valtionvarainministeriö. Käännös suoritettiin W3C:n virallisen käännösohjeen mukaisesti. (Ks. Policy for Authorized W3C Translations.) W3C:n verkkosisällön saavutettavuusohjeet ovat aihepiirin de facto -standardi ja ne on käännetty lukuisille eri kielille (ks. WCAG 2.0 Translations). Mm. Euroopan Unioni (EU) ohjeistaa jäsenvaltioitaan W3C:n verkkosisällön saavutettavuusohjeiden noudattamiseen.

Verkkosisällön saavutettavuusohjeiden (WCAG 2.0) virallisia käännöksiä nyt kuudella kielellä

Today two more Authorized Translations of WCAG 2.0 were published, bringing the total to six languages. These were developed through the Policy for Authorized W3C Translations and they can be used for official purposes. W3C encourages translation of specifications and resources into all languages; see W3C Translations. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) particularly encourages the development of W3C Authorized Translations of WCAG 2.0 and other technical specifications to facilitate their adoption and implementation internationally; see Translating WAI Documents. To find out if WCAG is available in your language, see the WCAG 2.0 Translations list, which also lists unofficial translations.
