Smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, in-car systems, games consoles, interactive whiteboards: the range and sophistication of Internet-enabled devices that users are working and learning with has expanded dramatically in recent years, and when discussing personal and institutional technologies we now mean a whole range of form factors and features, some of which did not exist in usable form only 5 years ago.

However we've also seen a convergence of the types of capabilities these devices bring to users, and in particular how a strong role is emerging for web standards like HTML5 in creating the next generation of software applications for all kinds of platforms.

In this talk we'll look at the roadmap for flexible applications (widgets) based on current and planned work in W3C, and explore some of the challenges that have emerged in current projects for using widget technologies to deliver compelling mashups that take advantage of the features offered by today's - and future - devices.
