December 2001 marks the 10th anniversary of the first U.S. Web site at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). To mark this occasion SLAC is hosting a two-day symposium on December 3 and 4 entitled “The Once and Future Web.” The symposium committee has been working to make this event not just a celebration of the accomplishments of the past decade, but also a serious look forward at the technologies and issues spawned by the Web Revolution. Invited speakers have been encouraged to challenge attendees to become active participants in defining and building the next generation of the Web/Internet. This will be an open event, accessible to technologists, to the public, and to all sectors in between.
