Posters provide a forum for late-breaking research, and facilitate feedback in an informal setting. Posters are peer-reviewed. Formatting and publication details will be available on

The poster area provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent Web-related research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. It gives conference attendees a way to learn about innovative works in progress in a timely and informal manner.

Tutorials and Workshops

A program of tutorials will cover topics of current interest to Web design, development, services, operation, use, and evaluation. These half and full-day sessions will be led by internationally recognized experts and experienced instructors using prepared content.

Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers, designers, leaders, and practitioners to explore current Web R&D issues through a more focused and in-depth manner than is possible in a traditional conference session. Participants typically present position statements and hold in-depth discussions with their peers within the workshop setting.

Developers Day

Developers Day (D-Day) will be devoted to the interests of Web developers, and will offer in-depth discussions of technologies and tools at the forefront of the Web. This day-long program will consist of several parallel streams focused on specific content areas. D-Day sessions are designed to be timely and state-of-the-art.
