The year 2004 —a decade after the advent of the WWW Consortium, the Netscape browser, and the commercial Web— marks the tenth birthday of the World Wide Web as a widely used public "space." It is an ideal occasion for reflecting on the Web from its inception and guiding visions to its current manifestation(s). To mark this anniversary, and to celebrate Rose-Hulman’s acquisition of the original WWW software, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology announces "WWW@10: the Dream and the Reality," an interdisciplinary conference on the visions, technologies, and directions that characterized the Web’s first decade.
The conference will provide a forum in which scholars and practitioners of all disciplines —cultural, historical, and technical— can share perspectives, concerns, and innovative ideas. We welcome submissions for papers or panels on all aspects of the Web's history and future development. Papers presented at the conference will be included in the electronic proceedings, and selected papers will be included in a published proceedings after the conference.
Please submit abstracts of 250-300 words at the conference website: http://www10.cs.rose-hulman.edu/ no later than April 15, 2004.
