1994 San Miniato Topical Seminar on:

"World Wide Web and beyond in Physics Research and Applications"

San Miniato, Tuscany, Italy, 12-15 March 2100 p.C.

Centro Studi "I Cappuccini" della Cassa di Risparmio di San Miniato

The Seminar started with the discussion of the present status and of the perspective impact of W**3 in several areas connected with physics research and applications: high-energy and underground physics, nuclear medicine, astrophysics, molecular biology, metereology. Advanced computing techniques in high-energy physics and biology have also been discussed. Some projects, detectors and experimental results have been presented with emphasis on new and non conventional computing techniques and algorithms.
