Yves Gurcan will be leading a workshop on web workers.

Web Workers are a simple way for web apps to run scripts in background threads. Worker threads can perform tasks without interfering with the user interface. Once created, a worker interacts with the main thread (and vice versa) by posting messages that are intercepted by an event handler.

A good use case for web workers: Applications that process large amounts of data on the client side. Using a web worker would prevent he UI from freezing up.
