The World Wide Web Conference is a yearly international conference on the topic of the future direction of the World Wide Web. It began in 1994 at CERN and is organized by the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2).
The Conference aims to provide the world a premier forum for discussion and debate about the evolution of the Web, the standardization of its associated technologies, and the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The conference brings together researchers, developers, users and commercial ventures—indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.
The International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2) is hosting the World Wide Web Conference on May 13 – 17 in Rio de Janeiro.
The conference aims to provide a premier forum for discussion and debate about the evolution of the Web.
