Interest Groups

Interest Groups, like Working Groups, are the heart of the W3C Process. The W3C Team spends a certain amount of resources tracking Web developments, which culminates in the process of re-allocating W3C resources:

  1. The Director announces the development of a proposal for one or more new Interest Group charters.
  2. Advisory Committee representatives review the proposed charters.
  3. The Director announces a decision to approve the group(s) (or otherwise), as proposed or with modifications suggested by reviewers.

The primary goal of an Interest Group is to bring together people who wish to evaluate potential Web technologies and policies. An Interest Group is a forum for the exchange of ideas.

Interest Groups do not publish Recommendation Track technical reports.

More information about the role of Interest Groups can be found in the Process document.

There are currently 10 open Interest Groups.
