Googlers are taking an active part in the ongoing dialogue with the research community at the World Wide Web (WWW) conference, happening this week in Lyon, France. While we’ve been a member and supporter of the community for years, we’re excited to bring the research at Google discussion to Google Plus for the first time. This Wednesday, April 18 at 16:30 CET, members of our technical team will be hosting a Hangout on Air live from the Google Booth at WWW.

Tune in at Google Students page on Google+. Our technical team is taking on topics like the interplay between engineering and research required for product innovation and tips on how to be a well-rounded researcher.

We’re taking your questions too about research at Google and Google at WWW -- the very conference to which Larry and Sergey published their paper on PageRank more than a decade ago. Submit your questions (and vote on others) on the WWW 2012 Google Moderator page or via Google+ using the hashtag #GoogleWWW2012 in a publicly shared post.

After the conference, we’ll add video of the discussion to the Hangouts On Air playlist on the Google Students YouTube channel.
