Florence wins World Wide Web Conference 2015


At the end of the World Wide Web Conference 2012, which closed in Lyons on 20 April, it was announced that Florence won the bid to host the 2015 edition of the world’s largest academic event relating to the web. The conference discusses the web’s development and spread, as well as the standardisation of related technologies and above all the impact these have on contemporary society and culture. 

The conference, expected to attract 2,000 delegates from all over the world, will be held from 14 to 18 April 2015 in the facilities of Firenze Fiera: the bid was presented by the Florence Convention Bureau in December 2011, supported by Florence-based PCO OIC and professors Aldo Gangemi from the National Research Council (CNR) in Rome and Stefano Leonardi and Alessandro Panconesi from Rome’s La Sapienza University.

Florence won out over Ljubljana and Hanover, which were also on the final shortlist of candidate destinations: the Tuscan capital’s winning bid was supported by a very strong scientific proposal, letters of support to the conference from local and regional authorities and the presence in the region of well-known web-related organisations, including BTO Educational, Fondazione Sistema Toscana (Tuscan System Foundation) and Fondazione del Rinascimento Digitale (Digital Renaissance Foundation).

Another key factor in this success was the presentation made in Lyons last Friday of Florence and its offer for the conference by Carlotta Ferrari, director of the Florence Convention Bureau, together with Viviana Vitali from OIC and professors Gangemi and Leonardi; this was well received by delegates and contributed to secure the future edition.
