The International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) and the
Computer and Automation Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of
Sciences (MTA SZTAKI) cordially invite you to participate in the
Twelfth International World Wide Web Conference on May 20-24, 2003, in
Budapest, Hungary.

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 track presentations (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 the fastest
growing economy 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, reliable
and frequent public transportation, vivid cultural life, and rich
museums attract millions of visitors every year. Hungary has a
visitor-friendly visa policy, economically priced services and goods,
and a pleasant climate, making it one of the most popular meeting
venues worldwide.

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 http://www2003.org/.

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. Inquiries can be sen=
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

Inquiries about the WWW2003 tutorials and workshops can be sent to


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. Inquiries
