Webcast the Web@30 live event on 12 March

Web@30 event logo

In 1989, CERN was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers, and wrote a proposal in March 1989 called "Information Management: A Proposal". By 1991, this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web!

To celebrate 30 years since Tim Berners-Lee's proposal and to kick-start a wide series of celebrations worldwide, CERN will host a 30th Anniversary event in the morning of 12 March 2019 in partnership with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the World Wide Web Foundation.

All Ecsite members are invited to take part in the Web@30 event by hosting either a live or a recorded webcast on 12 March 2019 depending on your time zone.

All you need to host a webcast is a suitable location - your institute, university, school, library, hospital, museum… register your viewing party, invite colleagues, friends and members and simply tune in to the Web@30 webcast!
