Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce an upcoming Workshop:

	The Future of Offline Web Applications
        5 November 2011
 	Redwood City, CA, USA
        Hosted by Vodafone

The Web has rapidly evolved into a platform suitable for applications that exhibit a level of richness and interaction that could barely be envisioned 20 years ago. Word processors, email clients, navigation systems, and games are just a small sample of applications that are now a regular part of the Web experience, but there are many types of applications that are difficult to produce using Web technologies. In order to facilitate these complex applications move into the Web, additional functionality is required from the Open Web Platform.

Off-line use of Web applications is one of the key missing elements from the Web platform that application developers require. The current fragmentation in this solution space is creating confusion among would-be WebApp developers and organizations who would otherwise invest in the Open Web Platform.

The goal of this workshop is to identify a clear path forward for innovation in the Open Web Platform related to offline Web application invocation and use.

More background information for this Workshop is available:

If you have any questions, please contact the chairs: Daniel Appelquist <Daniel.Appelquist at vodafone.com> and Matt Womer <mdw at w3.org>.
