Florence will hold the main Internet forum of the world
The 25th International WWW World Network Conference in 2015 will be held in Florence. The famous Italian city will host one of the key global Internet events from 14 to 18 April, 2015.

First International Internet Conference was held in 1994 in Geneva. It is believed that WWW World Conference was initiated by a legendary scientist Robert Cailliau from the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN). Robert Cailliau is known worldwide as one of the developers of the basic WWW network technology along with Tim Berners-Lee.

Due to the development of the Internet the event started to gain authority. Today the conference is the most representative scientific event of the global network, which attracts leading scientific minds, technologists, engineers, network security specialists and many others.

Florence will become the first Italian city to host the WWW Conference.

The possibility of hosting the WWW 2015 was provided to the "Renaissance City" by the Florence Convention Bureau and OIC - the agency that organizes major business events and exhibitions in Florence. One of the key factors that influenced Florence success in determining the WWW 2015 host city was active promotion of the application by such eminent Italian digital technology scientists as Professor Aldo Gangemi and Roman scholars Stefano Leonardi and Alessandro Pankonesi from the La Sapienza University.

The right to host the WWW 2015 Florence won from two other European centers - Slovenian capital Ljubljana and famous for its fairs Hannover in Germany.

It is expected that the Internet forum will attract to Florence more than 2,000 professionals from around the world.

This year the main Internet forum of the planet will be held in French Lyon. Next year WWW 2013 will be organized in Rio de Janeiro.
