Rohit will be attending W3C 10 on December 1…

Speakers and panelists will discuss the history of the Web, W3C’s central role in the Web’s development, and their visions of the Web’s future. The program is built on two themes:

The world of W3C is leading the Web to its full potential. W3C is the steward of the World Wide Web. The organization’s vision, mission, collaborations, and specifications have and will make a difference. During the symposium, speakers will relate stories about the Web’s origins and describe its impact over the past ten years. Members will be thanked and congratulated for their accomplishments. Speakers will present their visions and dreams for the future of W3C and the Web.

One Web with access for all. The Web is a universal, open and easily accessible medium that empowers people. One of W3C’s primary goals is to make the Web’s benefits available to all people, whatever their hardware, software, network infrastructure, native language, culture, geographical location, or physical or mental ability. W3C’s Activities illustrate the consortium’s commitment to universal access. During the symposium, speakers will present the Web of meaning — the Semantic Web — and Web access for everyone, everywhere.
