The Web Conference (formerly www conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the future directions of the World Wide Web.
The conference series began in 1994 at CERN and has been organized from 1994 to 2021 by the International World Wide Web Conferences 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, developers, users and commercial ventures — indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.
Starting with 2018 edition, the conference series previously known as World Wide Web Conference (WWW) has been renamed as The Web Conference or TheWebConf with a new brand and a new communication model.
A new future for the conference series
The 2022 edition marks another important change in the history of this conference series: it is now integrated into ACM SIGWEB and will be managed by a new steering committee within ACM.
