WebScience@10: Celebrations

Published: 25 November 2016

The innovative discipline of Web Science was 10 years old this year, and students and staff were invited to help celebrate this important anniversary by joining the global birthday party on Tuesday 29 November.


The University has played a significant role in the development of the Web over the last 25 years, and marked the anniversary with a live event in London. A Global ‘TV Channel’ featured events and activities from around the world.

The Channel went live online and broadcast on the big screen in the foyer of Building 53, Highfield Campus, making virtual ‘visits’ to Singapore, Bangalore, London, Berlin and Chicago throughout the day.

The Channel also featured highlights of key research outputs. Contributors included Martha Lane Fox, Vint Cerf, Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Doc Searls, and other Web Science leaders.
