“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Sergey’s and Larry’s paper in 1998. I cannot think of any scientific paper that has had such an impact on society.” 
-  Professor Dame Wendy Hall, International World Wide Web Conference Committee Chair

Congratulations to Google founders +Larry Page and +Sergey Brin, who have received the inaugural Seoul Test-of-Time Award at the 24th International World Wide Web Conference in Florence, Italy!

In 1998, Larry and Sergey introduced Google to the world with their research paper The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine (http://goo.gl/PCPZK4), presented at the 7th World Wide Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

The award was presented on May 22, and was accepted on behalf of our founders by Google Distinguished Scientist +Andrei Broder. See the #www2015  conference announcement at http://goo.gl/A71sFt.
