W3C Workshop on a Device Description Repository

Madrid, Spain, 12-13 July 2006

With ever-increasing diversity of Web-enabled devices, it is expected that content adaptation will play a significant role in the delivery of content. The successful adaptation of content to the capabilities of a device depends on reliable knowledge about the target device. For example, the selection of columns of a table may depend on the physical width of the screen. The goal of this Device Description Repository workshop is to discuss the design, the implementation and use of a repository of device information (DDR) for content and service providers, as part of W3C's Mobile Web Initiative.
