Conference:  May 11-14, 1999 

The WWW8 Conference, sponsored by the International World Wide Web
Conference Committee (IW3C2) and managed by Foretec Seminars, will consist
of refereed technical papers, tutorials, workshops, posters, a W3C track,
and a Developer's Day track.  Technical papers present original reports of
substantive new work in areas that can be theoretical (models, analysis
techniques, semantics), empirical (experiments, case studies), or
implementation-oriented (new systems, tools, methodologies, user
interfaces).  Papers should properly place the work within the field, cite
related work, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of the work and
its contribution to the development of the WWW.  Papers will be refereed by
an International Program Committee. 

Best Paper and Best Presentation awards will be presented at the closing
