The International World Wide Web Conference (abbreviated as WWW) is a yearly international academic conference on the topic of the future direction of the World Wide Web. It began in 1994 and is organised by the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2). It is aimed at "key influencers, decision makers, technologists, businesses and standards bodies". The event usually spreads over 5 days.
The conference series is aimed at providing a global forum for discussion and debate in regards to the standardization of its associated technologies and the impact of said technologies on society and culture. Developers, researchers, users, and commercial ventures are all brought together by the conference to discuss the evolution of the Web. The conferences are organized by the IW3C2 in collaboration with Local Organizing Committees and Technical Program Committees.
Robert Cailliau lobbied inside CERN and at conferences like the Hypertext conference 1991 (in San Antonio) and 1993 (in Seattle). As he came back from the conference 1993 he announced a new conference called World Wide Web Conference 1 and was actually 23 hours faster than the NCSA announced Mosaic and the Web. After funding the IW3C2 with Joseph Hardin from the NSCA they decided the next Conferences in Geneva.
