We invite workshop proposals to be held at The Web Conference 2023 (formerly known as WWW). The conference will take place in Texas, USA on April 30 - May 4 2023.

The Web Conference 2023 will feature a number of co-located workshops that are intended to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in Web technologies to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent Web topics. Workshop participants will be given the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn cutting-edge science and technological advancements for the Web, establish common ground in research areas or applied problems, and identify new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future work.

Organizational Details for Workshops

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own review process and publicity. They must maintain an up-to-date website for their workshop that will be referenced from The Web Conference 2023 website. They are required to cooperate closely with the conference workshop chairs and with the local organizers to finalize all details and to provide input for publicity. Accepted workshops will be scheduled so as to avoid conflicts with conference sessions in similar or related areas.

Workshops will benefit from the registration process of The Web Conference 2023. Workshop organizers must inform the Workshop Chairs of the numbers of submissions and acceptances as these numbers become available. Workshops with fewer than 15 expected registrants may be cancelled or merged with other workshops at the discretion of the conference organizers and will not be part of the official/accepted conference workshops. The cancelled workshops will not enjoy the support mentioned above. Workshop timelines (deadlines for submissions, notification, and camera-ready papers) are proposed by the workshop organizers in agreement with The Web Conference 2023 workshop chairs.

The workshop organization shall follow the same guidelines as the main conference in terms of physical presence. At least one organizer should be physically present and the authors of workshop papers should be encouraged to attend the Web Conference 2023 in person.

Workshop Proceedings

The proceedings of the workshops will be published in the conference proceedings (companion volume). Workshop papers that have been previously published or are under review for another journal, conference or workshop should not be considered for publication. Workshop papers should not exceed 12 pages in length (maximum 8 pages for the main paper content + maximum 2 pages for appendixes + maximum 2 pages for references). Papers must be submitted in PDF format according to the ACM template published in the ACM guidelines, selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. The PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. Workshop papers must be self-contained and in English.

Submission Guidelines for Workshop Proposals

Workshop proposals should be in English and should contain no more than five (5) pages in length (according to the ACM format acmart.cls, using the “sigconf” option). Submissions must be in PDF and must be made through the EasyChair system at (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thewebconf2023 (select the Workshop track). Furthermore, they should follow the outline detailed below:

In particular, we also encourage the submission of workshops that do not follow the typical workshop format of a mini-conference:

Review Process for the Workshop Proposals

The decision about acceptance or rejection of workshop proposals will be made by a small program committee, the Workshop Chairs and in consultation with the General Chairs, taking into account several factors including overall quality, the topic fit with respect to The Web Conference 2023, the coverage of the topic in other tracks of the conference, the estimated number of attendees for the workshop, a clear focus, and the venue capacity. Moreover, special attention will be given to inclusion and diversity balance in the workshop PC composition and its organization. We also favour workshops that are genuine interactive events and not mini-conferences. Workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions are welcomed.

Important Dates for Workshop Organizers

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