Event details

Part of Interdisciplinary Research Week 2014

Since Professor Tim Berners-Lee had the idea for the Web in 1989, it has grown faster and huger than anyone ever imagined it would and our efforts to manage it always seem to lag slightly behind its proliferation. It allows things to happen on an enormous scale. Is it out of control? Come and hear researchers at the cutting edge as they set out the issues that the existence of the Web presents us with right now. Join Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Judith Petts as she introduces Dame Wendy Hall who has just launched the brand new discipline of Web Science; Dr Lisa Harris who is Chair of the Digital Economy USRG; Professor Les Carr, web scientist, open access advocate and Director of our Web Science doctoral training centre and Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon who specialises in Law and the Web.

Hear them, have your say and enjoy free coffee and muffins!
