Working Groups

Working Groups are the heart of the W3C Process. The W3C Team spends a certain amount of resources reviewing Submissions, running Workshops, and otherwise 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 Working 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.

Working Groups and Interest Groups produce Recommendations and other technical reports, and sample code.

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

There are currently 41 open Working Groups.
