International researchers, technologists, and leaders from academia,
industry, and government will gather at WWW2003 to define, refine,
present, demonstrate, and discuss the latest ideas and developments.

The technical program will include refereed paper presentations,
alternate tracks including an Industrial track (see below), plenary
sessions, panels, and poster sessions. Tutorials and workshops will
precede the main program, and a Developers Day will follow, which will
be devoted to in-depth technical sessions designed specifically for
web developers.

Hungary is situated at the heart of Europe, and has one of the fastest
growing economies in the region, especially with respect to
information technology and telecommunication. Budapest is one of the
most beautiful capitals of the world, and is easy to reach by air or
on ground. The warm hospitality of the people, excellent food,

Posters provide a forum for late-breaking research, and facilitate
feedback in an informal setting. Posters are peer-reviewed. 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. Formatting and submission
requirements are available at http://www2003.org/cfp.htm. Inquiries
can be sent to king@cse.cuhk.edu.hk.


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
