Lyon, host city for the Web Conference 2018

From April 23, 2018 to April 27, 2018

The Université de Lyon was delighted to hear that the W3C2 (International World Wide Web Conference Committee) has entrusted Lyon for the second time with hosting the 27th year of The Web Conference (formerly WWW), the world's most prestigious web conference, from 23 until 27 April 2018 at the Lyon Convention Center.

Here, various key actors in the field will discuss the evolution of the web and its technology, as well as their impact on society, education, health and culture. Over 2,000 participants are expected to attend over the five days.

Following the incredible success of the 2012 event, the conference is set to return for the first time ever to a city that has already organized it, propelling Lyon and the French web community into the international digital spotlight once again.

A must-visit event for researchers, developers, politicians, financers and web users, the Web Conference 2018 guarantees to be a renowned, large-scale, high-profile and successful scientific event.

What is The Web Conference?

The Web Conference is a must-visit event for all web stakeholders, whether they are scientists, industrialists or users.
This is where major announcements are made, where the best-known scientific proposals are published, where you can learn about the latest technology (announced or published during previous years), such as HTML5 or Cloud Computing, and where you can gain insight into the future of the web thanks to future-orientated keynotes, as well as into its users and the societal impacts of emerging technologies. This is by far the most cited conference in publications about the web.
