The International World Wide Web Conference 2013 (#WWW2013) is underway and an iSchool@UBC faculty member is already making waves in Rio. Professor Heather O’Brien, presenting with Mounia Lalmas from Yahoo! Labs and Elad Yom Tov from Microsoft Research, made the list of “Highlights from Opening Day” for her tutorial on “Measuring User Engagement.” The tutorial focused on how user engagement is currently being measured as well as future considerations for its measurement.
The World Wide Web Conference is a yearly international conference on the future direction of the World Wide Web. It began in 1994 at CERN and is organized by the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2). The Conference runs from May 13-17 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
