W3C invites experts to participate in the 'Mobile Web in Developing Countries' Workshop in Bangalore, India, on 5-6 December 2006.
Participants will discuss the challenges, requirements, and use cases for mobile Web access in developing countries and thus help bridge the digital divide. The Workshop will bring together experts in mobile Web technologies and specialists on emerging countries and the digital divide.
This public Workshop is part of W3C's Mobile Web Initiative, which aims to identify and resolve challenges and issues of accessing the Web when on the move.
W3C invites support for this Workshop through a three-tier sponsorship program designed to support participation by people or organizations who might otherwise not have the financial means to attend the meeting.
Sponsors reach those who are making decisions about the future of the Web, as well as those in the public who have come to rely on the Web as critical infrastructure for development.
To participate in the Workshop, please submit a position paper by email before 1 November 2006.
