The program committee for the Sixth International World Wide Web Conference invites the submission of papers for inclusion in the conference poster session. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (both hardcopy and online); and authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work in the conference poster session.

The official poster session, when all authors are expected to be available to discuss their posters with conference attendees, will be held on Monday evening (April 7th). Posters will however continue to be displayed throughout the week of the conference. There will be some limited availability of power, network hookups, and possibly other equipment available for those wishing to include interactive demos as part of their poster presentation. There may also be an opportunity for some poster presenters to lead informal "work-in-progress" discussions during the conference.
