Due to Covid-19, my trip to Taipei to attend TheWebConf 2020
Like many colleagues I will be participating in this conference remotely hoping that there will be no computer viruses at the same time.
Sessions can be attended remotely in real time during the conference for registered persons. They also are and will be available on line.
Here is on YouTube the conference openning ceremony that was held on Wednesday April 22nd at 8:2O AM in Taipei… that is 2:20 AM French time.
Here is also the keynote given by Sir Nigel Shadbolt next morning on the thema Architectures for Autonomy: Towards an Equitable Web of Data in the Age of AI
Finally the closing ceremony and the annoucement of the 2021 edition of the conference.
Our IW3C2 meeting will be held later via video conferencing.
The positive aspect of all this will be a reduction in our carbon footprint. 😉
