World Wide Web (The Web Conference – WWW 2018)

 

WWW 2018 Conference

The Web Conference (formerly www conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the future directions of the World Wide Web.

It began in 1994 at CERN and is organized by the International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2). The Conference aims to provide the world with a premier forum for discussion and debate about the evolution of the Web, the standardization of its associated technologies, and the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The conference brings together researchers, developers, users and commercial ventures — indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.

A new brand for the conference

Starting with 2018 edition, the conference series previously known as World Wide Web Conference (WWW) has been rebranded as The Web Conference. The IW3C2 took this decision to allow a better visibility of this event, especially on social networks. 
With the change of hashtag (#www2015, #www2016, #www2017), the communication underwent a rupture every year. The new single hashtag #thewebconf that will now persist for all future editions solves this problem. The old style hashtag (ie #www2018) should be temporarily used next to the new one to ensure the transition. A second benefit is to give the series a graphic identity that will be declined for each annual edition. This identity may also be declined for other events to be organized around the main conference.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

The 2018 edition of The Web Conference (27th edition of the former WWW conference) will offer many opportunities to present and discuss latest advances in academia and industry.

  • Research tracks abstracts submission deadline : 26 October 2017
  • Research tracks full papers submission deadline : 31 October 2017
  • Research tracks acceptance notification : 22 December 2017
  • Research tracks papers final version due : 14 February 2018

Originality of Submissions

Submissions must represent new and original work. Concurrent submissions are not allowed. Papers that have been published in or accepted to any peer-reviewed journal or conference/workshop with published proceedings, are currently under review, or will be submitted to other meetings or publications while under review may not be submitted to WSDM 2018. However, submissions that are available online and/or have been previously presented orally or as posters in venues with no formal proceedings, are allowed. Note that if available online (e.g., via arXiv) and not anonymous, their titles and abstract must be sufficiently different from the WSDM submission in order to limit the risk that a direct search break the double blind reviewing requirement. Additionally, the ACM has a strict policy against plagiarism and self-plagiarism. All prior work must be appropriately cited.

Submissions

Papers must be submitted in PDF according to the new ACM format published in ACM guidelines, selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. Submissions should not exceed eight pages including any diagrams or appendices, plus up to one additional page of references. The PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. Submissions must be self-contained and in English. After uploading your submission, please verify the copy stored on the easychair site. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines, or do not view or print properly, may be rejected without review.

PDF files submitted to WSDM 2018 must be double-blind: the submitted document should not include author information and should not include citations or discussion of related work that would make the authorship apparent. Note however, that it is acceptable to explicitly refer in the paper to the companies or organizations that provided datasets, hosted experiments or deployed solutions. In order words, instead of stating for instance that an experiment “was conducted on the logs of a major search engine”, the authors should refer to the search engine by name. The reviewers will be informed that it does not necessarily imply that the authors are currently affiliated with the mentioned organization. To support identification of reviewers with conflicts of interest, the full author list must be specified at submission time. In exceptional cases, the author list may be modified later with permission of the PC Chairs.

Review Process

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three PC members and a senior PC member. The acceptance decisions will take into account paper novelty, technical depth, elegance, practical or theoretic impact, and presentation. As an experiment this year, WSDM 2018 will use a combination of single-blind reviewing and double-blind reviewing.

Please contact the PC chairs at the address below for any questions on the submission or review process.

Reproducibility

The algorithms, resources and methods used within a paper should be described as completely as possible. Authors may reference supplementary material, including detailed descriptions, test datasets or code. However, this information is not part of the submission proper, and will be read only at the discretion of the reviewers. Wherever appropriate, the authors are encouraged to use publicly available test collections and state-of-the-art baselines. Please consider sharing your intermediate/final experimental results and code with the research community.

Publication and Presentation

All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. For every paper there must be a registered author to present it in person at WSDM 2018. At the conference, all the papers will be allocated a slot at the interactive poster session to encourage discussion. Additionally, selected papers will be presented during the plenary oral sessions as either long or short talks.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
