His responsibilities at W3C include actions such as confront theory and practice in international settings and follow the evolution of the Open Web platform into a full-fledged development platform, in particular its integration on all sorts of connected objects (e.g. Web3D, mobile, TV). He is involved in Web architecture, Mobile Web, Software Development, and Standardization activities.
W3D collaborates closely with the Web3D community in the definition and promotion of standards related to the inclusion of 3D content in the Web W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device. Although the boundaries of the platform continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone for this platform. But the full strength of the platform relies on many more technologies that W3C and its partners are creating, including CSS, SVG, WOFF, the Semantic Web stack, XML, and a variety of APIs.
W3C develops these technical specifications and guidelines through a process designed to maximize consensusabout the content of a technical report, to ensure high technical and editorial quality, and to earn endorsement by W3C and the broader community.
