The Web Conference 2021
April 19 - April 23
Since the invention of the World Wide Web in 1989, The Web Conference (formerly known as The WWW Conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the World Wide Web. This conference has been the premier venue addressing the evolution and current state of the Web through the lens of computer science, computational social science, economics, public policy, and Web-based applications. The Conference assembles scholars, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and end-users with one unifying goal: to envision and create the future of the Web.
Over the past three decades, The Web Conference has been the forum where some of the most fundamental web technologies have been introduced. These groundbreaking technologies have improved our daily lives. The Conference has also inspired new ideas for business, communication, and entertainment, such as e-commerce, online-shopping, Web/mobile payments, Web TV/phones, and Web banking. Nearly all online systems today employ Web technologies, connecting every corner of the world.
The 30th Web Conference will take place in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Spring time, at the end of April 2021 is the best time to visit our green, highly sustainable and well developed country situated in the heart of Europe. We can expect beautiful spring weather, mostly sunny days with temperatures up to 20-25⁰ C (68-77⁰ F).
At a time when more than 60% of the world’s population will be connected. There we will reflect on the past 30 years of the Web, share the latest research findings, and plan for the future of Web-based technologies. The Conference will host three keynote speakers and highlight numerous research tracks, workshops and tutorials, a Ph.D. consortium, as well as several theme-based tracks: AIoT(AI+IoT+5G), History of Web, The Intelligent Web, The Web Renovation, and The Asia Silicon Valley Plan. The full program of the Conference will bring together some of the most prominent and influential researchers, developers, policymakers, and thinkers in the areas of big data, artificial intelligence, healthcare, computer science, computational social science, public policy, law, and human rights. The Conference will build upon its stellar traditions, creating the Web of the future – a Web that is diverse, neutral, and balanced, and that truly lives up to its dream of democratizing access to content.

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.
