The Institute for Web Science and Technologies (WeST) at the University of Koblenz, works on issues related to the usage and the technologies of the World Wide Web. Researchers consider the technical aspects of the Web as a global networked information system, and information services, as well as the personal and social aspects of Web use. They aim at understanding the structure and evolution of the Web, in order to make the Web more useful, and to ensure its future success. WeSt researches and develops novel technologies of the Semantic Web, Web Retrieval, Multimedia Web, Interactive Web and the Software Web.
