Heavily used by various industries and services (including payments/commerce, media distribution, video conferencing, connected cars, etc.), the Web is becoming a promising platform for IoT interoperability. In the context of the current global sanitary context, there are great expectations for smarter and easier integration of various technologies from multiple vendors related to IoT devices and Web services. W3C organizes a W3C workshop on 25 June 2021 to discuss applications and use cases of W3C's Web of Things standards for smart city services.

Since 1996, color on the Web has been locked into a narrow-gamut, low dynamic-range colorspace called sRGB. Display technologies have vastly improved since the bulky, cathode-ray tube displays of the 1990s. Content for the Web needs to be adaptable for different gamuts, different peak luminances, and a very wide range of viewing conditions. To understand what next steps are envisioned to enable Wide Color Gamut and High Dynamic Range on the Open Web platform, W3C organizes a virtual workshop in April-May 2021 with pre-recorded talks and interactive sessions from browser vendors, content creators, color scientists and other experts.
