W3C announces today a Shift into High Gear on the Web, a W3C Workshop on Web and Automotive, 14-15 November 2012, in Rome (Italy).
People today enjoy applications and services from multiple networked devices: notebook and desktop computers, smart phones, tablets, and Internet TVs. With our increasingly mobile lifestyles, it’s time to include the connected car in this mix. The Web is the ideal platform to offer a rich range of benefits and value-added services to drivers and passengers. The goal of this workshop is to explore how the Web will become the ideal platform to offer a rich range of benefits and value-added services to drivers and passengers in cars.
W3C invites automotive manufacturers and service providers, wireless carriers, insurance companies, application and solution developers and others to participate in this discussion at the workshop. W3C membership is not required to participate.
Please submit a statement of interest by 12 October and learn more about participation.
The event is hosted by Intel/OTC (Open Source Technology Center) and sponsored by Webinos.
