The International Conference on Applications of Digital Information and Web Technologies was the 7th event of the series organized since 2008 with the aim of building infrastructure necessary for large-scale development of Web technologies that enable easy access to digital information in its every form regardless of the user's need. Over the years, the ICADIWT conference has created its own research community of participants from numerous countries who attend the event every time with the intention to demonstrate and discuss the essential details of their research findings.
