The Open Web is a mix of technologies and concepts. Open web technologies and protocols (HTTP, HTML, CSS, Javascript, ...) have carried the World Wide Web to success by implementing decentralization, transparency, extendibility, third party innovation, bidirectional communications and end-user usability and integration.

The NLUUG fall conference (expect around 280 attendees in Ede, the Netherlands) is on the Open Web this time around; if you're working on web standards, web tools, interoperability or anything else covered by the call for abstracts (PDF, 817k, low information density), do drop the programme committee a note (and an abstract of around 200 words). Even policy wonks can have their say there. Deadline for submissions is the end of this month.
