The 20th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2011) shall be held from 28th March 2011 to 1st April 2011 at Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC), Hyderabad, India.
India is young and old at the same time. With a history of heritage, learning and civilization dating back to almost 5000 years or more, the Modern India presents itself as an ideal Conference and Tourist destination. From snow clad mountains to breezy sparkling blue sea side, from arid desert with shifting sand dunes to lush green country sides, from ancient relics and architectural ruins dating back into antiquity to modern cities, India has it all! It is a country of diversity and contrasts that mesmerizes one and all with its mystery, its spirituality and its magical pull.
The theme for WWW 2011 is “Web for All” to promote the all inclusive aspect of Web and is being hosted by International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore in cooperation with International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. On behalf of the WWW 2011 Organizing Committee, WWW 2011 General Co-chairs Prof. S.

In this WWW2010 Keynote, Carl Malamud will relate the story of his encounters with 7 bureaucratic institutions in his quest to convince government that if law is code, then it must be open source. Starting with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in the days before the Web and moving on to today’s Law.Gov movement, Carl will present his case that materials, be they technical standards or court opinions, must be available to all.

Creating your own ARIA compliant UI widgets with HTML and XHTML
Dave Raggett, W3C
Developers face plenty of challenges for creating cross browser dynamic web pages. Search engines provide access to plenty of examples for how to achieve particular user interface effects, but very few take into account what is needed to support assistive technologies for people with disabilities. This talk will present examples to show how easy it is to create a variety of common user interface widgets that comply to the latest draft proposals for W3C WAI-ARIA guidelines using clean markup and simple scripts. This do it yourself approach provides an alternative to using big libraries, and gives you greater freedom in picking your own look and feel. (http://www.w3.org/2010/Talks/www2010-dsr-diy-aria/)
