Format of the workshop

  • Case Studies to allow industries to present their understanding and discuss ongoing implementations
  • Panel session to debate few questions prepared in advance

Problem Statement and Objectives of the workshop

HTML5 and related technologies like CSS3, JavaScript, WebGL and Web Workers are expected to deliver a standardised and widely acceptable format of communicating and delivering data and content across the web. While it has certainly gained strong attention around mobile, HTML5 technologies are expected to widely impact several other endpoints. Hence, there is a strong anticipation and equal excitement to understand the implications of juggernaut that HTML5 is or is not:

  • What will be the impact of HTML 5 for the future services on the Internet? What can you do with it today?
  • What's its role in TV services?
  • Will it really be able to replace mobile applications? What is the impact of HTML5 on mobile app development and other enterprise back-end as well as cloud systems? Will it replace proprietary Web media technologies?
  • What are the security concerns and challenges around HTML?
