IWI2 is the 2nd Workshop on Innovations in Web Infrastructure, colocated with WWW2006 in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom. It starts at May 22 2006 9:00 and ends at May 22 2006 18:00. For more information, see http://www.wmin.ac.uk/~courtes/iwi2006/.
Underlying the infrastructure of the web is a communications infrastructure, which is responsible for implementing much of the structure and functionality of the document repository. Recently, there has been increasing interest in innovative network topologies and communication paradigms, such as peer-to-peer networks, content-based networking, and publish/subscribe which produce decentralization of control, decoupling of producers and consumers of information and asynchronous as well as synchronous information delivery. Yet there is little focus on how this research can benefit the web.
