The IT industry is building the future web platform at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Open global standards for web technology are starting to be deployed in browsers, and the web community is enthusiastic about several new features such as location-based services. W3C is organizing this workshop to bring the television industry and other producers of consumer electronics into the discussion. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to share their own perspectives, requirements, and ideas to ensure that emerging global standards meet their needs.
Additionally, a W3C Interest Group on "Web and TV" is currently being created, and the results of this second workshop will be fed into the work of this interest group.
