Invitation and dates

We invite the entire Web Conference community to submit nominations for the Seoul Test of Time Award, which will be handed out at the Web Conference 2019 to be held in May 2019 in San Francisco, California. The award will be given to a paper that has been published in the Web Conference series, formerly known as WWW. Inaugurated in 2015, the Seoul Test of Time Award is made possible by the generous contribution of the organizers of WWW’2014 held in Seoul, South Korea. A list of the previous award winners is available online.
