After 13 years of successful work at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the W3C UK and Ireland Office has a new home at Nominet. Nominet runs the one of the world’s largest Internet registries, the registry for .uk domain names, with over eight million domain names. Phil Kingsland, Director of Marketing and Communications at Nominet, will be the new Office manager. He said, "We believe the work W3C does promoting Web accessibility standards, and developing other standards that help Web users to trust in the reputation of the Internet is well aligned with Nominet’s public purpose remit and vision, which is to be a leading force in making the Internet a trusted space, which everyone can be part of and has a positive impact on people’s lives." The Office plans a ceremonial launch later this year.

W3C would like to thank STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the W3C UK and Ireland Office staff, led by Michel D Wilson and his predecessors Stuart Robinson and Bob Hopgood, for their contributions to W3C and the Web.
