Co-sponsored by WST, and hosted by our managing director, Professor Dame Wendy Hall, the “Saving the Web” symposium held yesterday at the John W Kluge Center, Washington, provided a great opportunity for Web scientists to share knowledge on preserving the ephemeral Web. The symposium featured contributions from TCP/IP co-inventor and Google Internet Evangelist, Vin Cerf, Web archivists, Abbie Grotke (Library of Congress), and Jefferson Bailey (Internet Archive), WST chair, James Hendler, and many other speakers.

Professor Hall took up the post of Kluge Chair in Technology & Society in March this year, and the Symposium, together with its associated Datathon (Archives Unleashed), marked the culmination of her 3-month tenure.

To get a taste of the Symposium, and outputs from the Datathon, view “Save the Web Symposium” on Storify.
