Track chairs:


We invite research contributions to the Economics, Monetization, and Online Markets track at the 32nd edition of The Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be hosted at Austin, TX, US, on April 30 - May 4, 2023 (

The Web has transformed many businesses, such as retail, hospitality, advertising, finance, transportation, and more. It has also served as a platform for large-scale online markets such as cloud computing, crowdsourcing, and the sharing economy. This growth highlights the importance of understanding the economics of the Web, and we welcome innovative research in this space.

The track on Economics, Monetization, and Online Markets is a forum for theoretical, empirical, and applied research related to the modelling, analysis, and design of Web-related economic activities. We welcome papers that address Web-related research challenges in economics, Web monetization, and online markets. Materials that are necessary for a complete evaluation of the contribution of the paper (e.g., full proofs) should be either included in the paper or, if they would exceed the page limits, provided in a supplementary anonymized file hosted in an anonymous service as indicated in the instructions of the research call for papers.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

Authors should consult the conference’s main Research Track CFP to ensure their submissions are aligned with broader conference expectations, scope, and theme: “Web Research with Openness, Fairness and Reproducibility”.

Submissions that are out of scope or unresponsive to the call above will be rejected early during the reviewing process (“desk rejected”) with minimal feedback. This includes submissions that do not relate to the web or web-based infrastructures, technologies, or platforms.
