Keynote by Prof. Staab in ACM WebSci 2017 – Troy, New York, USA

The evolution of the Web should move forward in an upward spiral that cylces between guiding values, engineering and science. Guiding values should comprise social values as well as system principles that further stabilization and growth of the Web. Principles I will talk about will include social inclusion, connectedness and fairness. Example efforts improve Web access for disabled, critically access Web structures and Web growth, and try to transfer knowledge about previously found patterns of Web growth to analogous cases.
