Eighth International World Wide Web Conference

The Eighth International World Wide Web Conference will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from May 10-14, 1999. The conference -- a five-day forum featuring research, technology, application innovations, societal issues, governmental issues, product offerings, services, and market potential -- will provide a venue for discussions and demonstrations of the pressing issues and hottest topics concerning the Web. The conference will consist of refereed paper sessions, poster and panel sessions, keynote and invited speakers, a W3C track, an industrial track, tutorials, workshops, an exhibition, and a developers day where the most recent technology developments will be discussed. The WWW8 Conference is organized under the auspices of the International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) and managed by Foretec Seminars. More information on the conference may be found at http://www8.org.

The poster session will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to learn about innovative work in progress and to preview late-breaking research results. A two-page abstract of accepted posters will appear in a poster proceedings distributed to conference attendees. Topics of interest include: performance; user interfaces; browsers and tools; searching, querying, and indexing; hypertext and hypermedia; electronic commerce and security. Web accessibility is a issue of particular interest to the conference.

A URL for the web page, along with the poster title, and the names and affiliations of its authors, should be sent to the address below. The web page will be referenced by the review committee during the review period, January 16 to March 2, 1998. It is the author's responsibility to ensure that the web page is reasonably accessible and is not substantially modified during this period. It is also the author's responsibility to ensure that the web page is viewable with all commonly used browsers.
