This year's big international web conference is in Beijing next month, and hundreds of innovators from around the world will see the Chinese internet first hand.

The 17th Annual International World Wide Web Conference, held by a nonprofit that puts together these confabs somewhere on Earth every year, has given the conference the theme of "One World, One Web"--playing on the Olympic slogan "One World, One Dream."

Though the majority of the program is, as usual, devoted to innovations in the world wide web, several speeches and panels will take up the Chinese internet. The program doesn't have many details on the China track yet, but if it's as in-depth as the other tracks appear to be, this could be a very interesting conference.
