16th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2007) in Banff, Alberta, Canada
Sunday, May 13, 2007
The 16th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2007) was held this week in Banff, Alberta, Canada. For those who have not been to Banff, it is a magnificant town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The World Wide Web Confernece brings together the key innovators, decision-makers, technologists, businesses, and standards bodies shaping the Web.

This year's conference featured almost 1000 delegates from 40 countries. Topics discussed at the conference included:

Browsers and User Interfaces
Data Mining
E* Applications
Industrial Practice and Experience
Performance and Scalability
Pervasive Web and Mobility
Security, Privacy, Reliability, and Ethics
Semantic Web
Technology for Developing Regions
Web Engineering
Web Services
XML and Web Data

Of course the topic of search is of most interest to us here at SEO-Space. Discussion on search included search specific topics such as:
  • Search engine design and architecture
  • Basic search engine infrastructure: crawling, indexing, and query processing
  • Web specific technologies: the use of link analysis, click-through data, query logs, and other metadata
  • Search-based advertising and the economics of Web search
  • Data-specific web search: multimedia, blogs, news, e-commerce
  • Integration of structured and unstructured data, multifaceted search
  • Search as an enabler of higher-level applications - Implicit Search and Information Supply
  • Personalized search - location, context and activity-aware search
  • Social search and the use of "human computing" in web search
  • Query and search-user modeling
  • Search interfaces, natural language interfaces to search, summarization, post processing tools and feedback
  • Search-motivated characterizations of the web
  • Distributed and peer-to-peer search
  • Meta-search and rank aggregation
  • Enterprise and desktop search
Very interesting search track indeed. It ties in nicely with the future of search and where search is going.

Next year's (2008) World Wide Web Conference will be held in Beijing, China.
