In association with
WWW2006 is expected to attract around 1,500 - 2,000 delegates. The audience will be made up of a broad range of interest groups from around the world. The conference will mix key influencers such as CIO's, IT directors and business decision makers from the realms of commerce and the public sector with a broad array of researchers, technologists and developers from institutions and technology driven businesses. What unites them is an interest in seeking out new ideas, technologies and strategies that exploit the potential of the online world for commercial and society's gain. It is truly the event that brings the key players together.
Researchers from the world's leading universities and academic institutions, but also from the world's most significant IT companies. All these delegates are engaged in blue-sky research, and the majority of them will be submitting papers on the latest research activities to the refereed conference tracks.
The development community includes those whose work is either near-to-market or market-facing. WWW developers typically work in R&D labs in the business and commercial sector, but also include researchers who have a commitment to developing usable tools and products.
The standards community includes organizations such as W3C and OASIS, which exist to promote standards that protect and develop the Web, fostering information interchange and process inter-operation. The standards community draws on both the research and development community.
All those whose business is the Web and who make the Web their business-organizations whose business success depends on the Web, a significantly expanding sector as the Web reaches into every aspect of people lives, stretching from financial services through retail and business-to-business services, to lifestyle.
Increasingly local and national government services depend on the Web, with new opportunities rapidly emerging for e-government and e-participation. In this context, e-literacy is a major concern of the public sector.
