Welcome to the website devoted to the International World Wide Web Conference.

It is an annual international conference which concerns the topics such as the future direction of the World Wide Web. It represents an outstanding international forum where major experts of the field present and discuss progress regarding research, development, standards, and applications of the newest developed technologies related to the Web. It is important to point out that all WWW Conferences aim to offer high-quality technical activities that involve research and poster sessions, as well as numerous workshops, and tutorials. In addition, these Conferences include special programs such as research track, posters track, demonstration track, developers track, industry track, panels, Ph.D. symposium track, tutorials, web science track, workshops, and W3C track.

International World Wide Web Conference is an excellent event for sharing the latest academic insights but also experiencing the unique culture of the host countries and their cities, which change every year. The conference is established in order to bring together scientists from the industry and help make an impact on the standardization of its associated technologies as well as the effect of these technologies on both society and culture.

This is the place were developers, researchers, internet users but also commercial ventures and organizations come together to discuss the latest achievements of the Web and how will it affect uses and trends, like, for instance, the development and popularization of the eTV and eBusiness.

Here you can find out everything you need to know about these conferences which usually last couple of days and include a variety of events. These conferences are mainly organized by the IW3C2 which collaborate with Local Organizing Committees and Technical Program Committees.

Topics and content vary from year to year concerning the latest developments and researches and because of these things the World-Wide Web Conference continues to be the number one venue for all researchers, academics, businesses, and standard bodies as well where the evolutionary path of the industry can be discussed.

Software Infrastructure

In terms of dealing with performance, scalability and also reliability issues within web systems and its software infrastructure it is necessary to observe several topics. This includes everything ranging from web protocols as well as content distribution systems to the architecture of large-scale systems used for web data serving, analysis, and cloud computing and storage as well.

History of the International World Wide Web Conference

WWWThe first International World Wide Web Conference was held in 1994 at CERN, and it was organized by Robert Cailliau. Later that year IW3C2 was founded by Joseph Hardin, and Robert Cailliau and this organization became responsible for the conference series ever since.
