W3C Meeting Prepares for the Future of the Web

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) hosted its annual Technical Plenary and Advisory Committee (TPAC) Meeting for 550 web technology experts Sept. 19–23 in Lisbon, Portugal. They discussed the challenges and opportunities surrounding the future of the web. Nearly 40 sessions focused on web standards, and 40 breakout sessions focused on emerging technologies that could benefit from W3C’s standardization work. These included virtual reality, micropayments, and Bluetooth and near-field communications (NFC) for the web. Alongside the meetings of formal working groups, for the first time, W3C facilitated the meetings of more than 20 W3C Community Groups, which are incubating ideas for future web technologies.
