The Web Conference (formerly www conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the future directions of the World Wide Web.

It began in 1994 at CERN and is organized by the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2). The Conference aims to provide the world with a premier forum for discussion and debate about the evolution of the Web, the standardization of its associated technologies, and the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The conference brings together researchers, developers, users and commercial ventures — indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.

Starting with 2018 edition, the conference series previously known as World Wide Web Conference (WWW) has been rebranded as The Web Conference. The IW3C2 took this decision to allow a better visibility of this event, especially on social networks. With the change of hashtag (#www2015, #www2016, #www2017), the communication underwent a rupture every year. The new single hashtag #thewebconf that will now persist for all future editions solves this problem. The old style hashtag (ie #www2018) should be temporarily used next to the new one to ensure the transition. A second benefit is to give the series a graphic identity that will be declined for each annual edition. This identity may also be declined for other events to be organized around the main conference.
