Tutorials have long been a vital component of the WWW conference series. Some of the first tutorials on technologies that we now take for granted today (e.g., Java) were presented at WWW conferences. Many attendees to past conferences have found their first exposure to important technologies and concepts have come through the conference tutorial program. Some Web “subject matter experts and gurus” got their start by presenting tutorials in the conference series. Therefore we can all benefit from an outstanding collection of tutorials.
