We invite research contributions to the Systems and Infrastructure for Web, Mobile Web, and Web of Things (WoT) track at the 32nd edition of The Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be held in Austin, Texas, USA, on April 30 - May 4, 2023.
The Systems and Infrastructure for Web, Mobile Web, and Web of Things (WoT) track solicits novel research contributions describing the performance, architecture, and construction of systems related to the Web and Web-based mobile and ubiquitous computing. This includes systems generating content and delivering content via the Web, Web technologies that can support the seamless integration of physical devices and thereby contribute to a more usable and less fragmented Internet of Things, and infrastructures enabling such systems and technologies and making them scale.
This track focuses on innovative experimental research as well as insightful experiences with real-world impacts. Our goal is to bring together professionals from academic and industrial communities to discuss emerging perspectives and new system challenges on the Web, Web of Things, and Web-related mobile and ubiquitous computing systems.
Please note that any submission for the track must make clear the relevance of the paper to the World Wide Web. Papers for which the relation to the World Wide Web is missing or unclear or implicit will be rejected. For instance, a paper on performance improvement of a general operating system would be out of scope even if it implicitly benefits Web servers, but if such a paper explicitly discusses and evaluates the effect of the proposed approaches on web servers then it would be in scope. Please also refer to the general relevance requirements as described in the general TheWebConf'23 Call for Papers.
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”. The CFP also details submission guidelines, relevant dates, and important policies.
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. For instance, a paper on performance improvement of a general operating system would be out of scope even if it implicitly benefits Web servers, but if such a paper explicitly discusses and evaluates the effect of the proposed approaches on web servers then it would be in scope.
In case you have doubts whether your paper fits the scope of this track, please contact the track chairs: firstname.lastname@example.org
