Call For Industry Proposals

Track chairs:


We invite contributions to the Industry Track to be held at The Web Conference 2023 (formerly known as WWW). The conference will take place online, hosted at Austin, USA, on April 30 - May 4, 2023.

The Web has proven to be a fertile ground for industrial research, and companies from small to large, from brand new to long established, are making an ongoing impact on the state of the art in science and engineering. The Web Conference 2023 Industry Track highlights such research in applied settings.

The Industry Track welcomes contributions showcasing original results obtained in an industrial environment, having clear industry relevance, and highlighting new research challenges motivated by practical tasks and practical settings. The Industry Track is distinct from the Research Track in that submissions focus on applied work describing e.g. the implementation of a system, the acquisition of data, or the application of a methodology, that solves a significant real-world problem and demonstrates benefits as well as impact. Submissions must clearly describe how their work has been deployed or released, and for how long.

Each submission must include at least one author with a non-academic affiliation.

Accepted papers will be published in the companion proceedings of The Web Conference, in the ACM Digital Library. Please be aware that 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.

Submission guidelines

Submissions are limited to 4 content pages, which should include all figures and tables, but excluding references. The papers must be formatted according to the instructions below. Submissions are NOT anonymous, hence authors should list their names and affiliations. Submitted papers should not have been published before in an archival venue, or currently be under review in an archival venue. Authors are welcome to submit papers that have been published as a preprint on arXiv, or in a non-archival venue like a workshop.

This year we will embrace the FAIR principles by collecting structured metadata of the datasets, software, and methods generated by all paper submissions. Authors will be encouraged to add these resources in the EasyChair submission form (together with a brief description).

ACM Policy Against Discrimination: all authors and participants must adhere the the ACM discrimination policy. For full details, please visit this site:

Submissions will be handled via Easychair at

Formatting the submission of short papers

Submissions must adhere to the ACM template and format published in the ACM guidelines at the ACM double-column SIG Conference Proceedings template:

Please remember to add Concepts and Keywords.

Submissions for review must be in PDF format. They must be self-contained and written in English.

Important dates

All submission deadlines are end-of-day in the Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone.
