International Workshop on Multilingual Web Access (MWA 2015)
http://www.multilingualwebaccess.org/
held In conjunction with the 24th International World Wide Web Conference, Florence, Italy, May 19, 2015.

--------
Motivation and Goals
--------

Over the past 25 years, the World Wide Web (WWW) has developed into a truly transnational information medium for users from across the globe. As of July 2013, Asia accounts for the largest share of online users in the world at 48.4%, followed by 21.8% from the Americas, and 19% from Europe. With this global development, the diversity of user languages on the Web has increased dramatically, leading to new challenges and opportunities for information access providers and consumers.

The MWA workshop will bring together researchers working on Cross-/Multilingual Search & Discovery, the Multilingual Social Web, as well as the Multilingual Semantic Web, in order to promote the exchange of complementary ideas and applicable/transferrable techniques between these areas. The goal of the workshop is to advance the current state of the art in Multilingual Web Access techniques, and, most importantly, to increase the adoption of multilingual techniques, methods, and tools in real-world Web applications.
