Dear Advisory Committee Representative, Chairs,

The Director is pleased to announce the re-charter of the Web Platform Working Group:


The mission of the Web Platform Working Group is to continue the development of the HTML language and provide specifications that enable improved client-side application development on the Web, including application programming interfaces (APIs) for client-side development and markup vocabularies for describing and controlling client-side application behavior.

Changes from the previous charter [1] include:

New deliverables: Intersection Observers, Static Range Moved from deliverable to potential deliverable: HTML 2D canvas Removed as deliverables: Service Workers; Background synchronization (transferred to new WG) High-level user events A further 6-month extension of the Working Group Updated expected milestones Removed note aspiring to modularisation of HTML It's often a useful goal, but pragmatic decisions have shown there is no clearly right answer and the Working Group makes things externally or integrates them on a case-by-case basis.

Please use the following form to join or re-join the group; the form will also instruct you how to nominate participants:


Current participants are required to re-join this group because its scope has changed.

The Web Platform WG Co-Chairs are Adrian Bateman (Microsoft), Léonie Watson (The Paciello Group), and Charles McCathie Nevile (Yandex).

The W3C Staff Contacts are Yves Lafon ylafon@w3.org and Xiaoqian Wu xiaoqian@w3.org, for a total of 1 FTE.
