The Web Conference (formerly known as WWW conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the World Wide Web
The conference began in 1994 at CERN and is organized each year by a local team of volunteers in different parts of the world who come together to organize the conference in collaboration with the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2). The Conference aims to provide the world with 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, policy makers, developers, users and commercial ventures — indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.
In 2019, The Web Conference will be hosted in San Francisco, California, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Web. We come together on May 13-17, 2019 at a time when more than 50% of the world's population will have access to the Web via internet. We seek to seize these moments to reflect on the past 30 years of the Web and plan together for the future of it, to rethink a Web that is truly inclusive and open, a Web for Good.
