Amaya is intended to be a comprehensive client environment for testing and evaluating new proposals for Web standards and formats. A large part of the intended features of Amaya are implemented in this release, but some of them are not complete yet.

Check out the list of new features.

The Amaya binary distribution is available for PC Linux, Windows (NT, XP, 2000) and Mac OS X. Users having other architectures are expected to compile the Amaya source code.

Release schedule

There are about three Amaya releases a year. Between each major release, we may generate patch releases or snapshots which fix important bugs.

Each time a new release is available, an email is sent to the www-amaya mailing list.

W3C’s Editor/Browser

Amaya is a Web editor, i.e. a tool used to create and update documents directly on the Web. Browsing features are seamlessly integrated with the editing and remote access features in a uniform environment. This follows the original vision of the Web as a space for collaboration and not just a one-way publishing medium.

Work on Amaya started at W3C in 1996 to showcase Web technologies in a fully-featured Web client. The main motivation for developing Amaya was to provide a framework that can integrate as many W3C technologies as possible. It is used to demonstrate these technologies in action while taking advantage of their combination in a single, consistent environment.

Amaya started as an HTML + CSS style sheets editor. Since that time it was extended to support XML and an increasing number of XML applications such as the XHTML family, MathML, and SVG. It allows all those vocabularies to be edited simultaneously in compound documents.

Amaya includes a collaborative annotation application based on Resource Description Framework (RDF), XLink, and XPointer. Visit the Annotea project home page.

Amaya – Open Source

Amaya is an open source software project hosted by W3C. You are invited to contribute in many forms (documentation, translation, writing code, fixing bugs, porting to other platforms…).

The Amaya software is written in C and is available for Windows, Unix platforms and MacOS X.

A public irc channel #amaya is available on irc.w3.org (port 6665).

Amaya Team

The application is jointly developed by W3C and the WAM (Web, Adaptation and Multimedia) project at INRIA. The core team includes: Irène Vatton (Project lead, INRIA), Laurent Carcone (W3C), Vincent Quint (INRIA).

Semantic Web Health Care and Life Sciences (HCLS) Interest Group

Semantic Web Health Care and Life Sciences (HCLS) Interest Group


The mission of the Semantic Web Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group, part of the Semantic Web Activity, is to develop, advocate for, and support the use of Semantic Web technologies for biological science, translational medicine and health care. These domains stand to gain tremendous benefit by adoption of Semantic Web technologies, as they depend on the interoperability of information from many domains and processes for efficient decision support.

The group will:

  • Document use cases to aid individuals in understanding the business and technical benefits of using Semantic Web technologies.
  • Document guidelines to accelerate the adoption of the technology.
  • Implement a selection of the use cases as proof-of-concept demonstrations.
  • Explore the possibility of developing high level vocabularies.
  • Disseminate information about the group’s work at government, industry, and academic events.


Communications of the HCLS IG are public. This includes public meeting records and access to the archives of the public-semweb-lifesci@w3.org mailing list.

The HCLS IG welcomes active participation from representatives of W3C Member organizations. If you are part of a W3C Member organization and you already have a W3C user account, you can join the HCLS IG by filling in the participation form. Otherwise, please follow the instructions on how to become a W3C Member. Active participation means participating at the weekly phone meetings, joining the discussions on the mailing list and, possibly, and participating at the face to face meetings.
