CERN wants to bring the line-mode browser experience back to life so that people can step back in time and relive what it was like to browse the web in its earliest days. No images, no colours, no clicking – just content. An unimpressive medium to a modern audience, the line-mode browser is nevertheless a key cultural asset associated with the story of how the web began.
Applications are welcome from anyone - whether you are from a CERN member state or not. We welcome applications from people of all ages, but if you are under 18 you will need the consent of a guardian, and you will need to be accompanied to CERN by a guardian.
Before you sign up: CERN is working to find sponsors to help provide flat bursaries for participants to offset travel and accommodation expenses. Please note, however, that participants will need make their own travel arrangements and book their own accommodation, and that bursaries may not fully cover expenses.
Application deadline: 15 July 2013
