JISC Representation on W3C

The W3 Consortium exists to develop common standards for the evolution of the World Wide Web (WWW). It is a global industry consortium run jointly by the Laboratory for Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and INRIA in France.

JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) have joined W3C, to ensure that the UK academic community is adequately informed as the WWW evolves and that the community has a voice to influence WWW development.

To this end they have appointed a representative, Chris Lilley of the University of Manchester. This has been funded through the Advisory Group on Computer Graphics (AGOCG). He will attend W3C meetings and WWW conferences as a representative of the community, and report back on developments.

There is a Mailbase list for discussion and announcements <agocg-w3c> and a WWW site containing reports and pointers to further information

To join the Mailbase list send a message containing the line Join agocg-w3c <your first name> <your second name>
