Biography

Bebo White is a Departmental Associate (Emeritus) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the U.S. national laboratory for high-energy physics and basic energy science at Stanford University. Working as a computational physicist, he first became involved with the emerging Web technology while on sabbatical at CERN in 1989.

Upon his return he was part of the team that established the first non-European Web site at SLAC (the fifth site in the world). Ever since, his academic research interests have evolved in parallel with Web technology and he has become internationally recognized as a WWW pioneer and visionary. He is often considered to be the "first American Webmaster" and one of the founders of the discipline of Web Engineering.

In addition to his work at SLAC, he also holds faculty appointments at several other institutions, is a member of the organizing committees of a number of major conferences series, and is a frequent conference speaker and paper reviewer. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has selected him to be a part of their Distinguished Speaker Program.

He is the author (or co-author) of nine books, and over 100 papers and journal articles.  Bebo White has lectured and spoken internationally to academic and commercial audiences.

Bebo White is married, has two adult sons, and lives in San Francisco. He has a BS in Physics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and an MS in Physics from the California State University, San Jose. In his spare time he is an amateur beer and winemaker, a beekeeper, and plays banjo and jug in The Tarantulas Jug Band.
