17th International World Wide Web Conference

The International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2) and Beihang University cordially invite you to participate in the 17th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2008), to be held at Beijing International Convention Center in the historical and charming city of Beijing, host to the 2008 Olympics games.

The World Wide Web Conference is a global event bringing together key researchers, innovators, decision-makers, technologists, businesses, and standards bodies working to shape the Web. Since its inception in 1994, the WWW conference has become the annual venue for international discussions and debate on the future evolution of the Web.

Beijing Tianhua Company, a Beijing event management company, is serving as the professional conference organizer for WWW2008. In addition, Microsoft Research Asia, Peking University, Tsinghua University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), and several other Chinese universities are all members of the local organizing committee.

The main theme of the conference is "One World, One Web". The conference will explore how Web access is moving from the desktop to cell phones and TV screens, and how most users are moving from passive browsing experiences on the Internet to active participation in building Web communities.

Authors attending the event are invited to report their original research covering the implications of ubiquitous access to the Web through the "three screens" 鈥�7 computer, phone, and TV 鈥�7 and how such Web access will change the way we live, work, and interact in the future.

Topics of discussion will include Browsers and UI, Data Mining, Mobility, Multimedia, Performance and Scalability, Search, Security and Privacy, Semantic Web, Social Networks and Web 2.0, Technology for Developing Regions, and Web Engineering. The conference will also feature workshops, tutorials, plenary speeches by renowned speakers, and tracks devoted to developers and to recent W3C activities that are of interest to the community.
