Call for Refereed Papers

www2012 seeks original papers describing research in all areas of the Web. Papers may be submitted to the following tracks. Please follow the links to individual tracks in the list below for further details as well as for Program Committee composition.

Submissions should present original results and substantial new work and can be up to 10 pages in length. Papers should properly place the work within the field, cite related work, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of the work and its contribution to the field, using for instance proper evaluation methods. We strongly encourage evaluations that are repeatable. Depending on the type of the paper and the proposed approach indications for repeatability may vary. For instance, theoretical papers may want to offer links to full proofs of theorems, empirical work may want to offer download of training and test data and experimental results, case study work may link to case study journals for deeper insights, system papers may provide download of the software or a Web client together with full assessments in user studies, approaches that describe algorithms may want to provide the algorithm in source code and in an easy-to-install manner.

We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference.

General queries regarding the submission process can be sent to:

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from an International Program Committee. Submissions will evaluated first within tracks; promising papers identified in each track will then be discussed in an in-person meeting of track chairs and deputy chairs, where the final selections will be made. Once the paper selection is complete, the technical sessions for the conference will be formed based on the topics of the accepted papers (regardless of which track handled them). Accepted papers will appear in the conference online proceedings published by the ACM Digital Library and the conference’s web site. Authors of accepted papers will retain proprietary rights to their work, but will be required to sign a copyright release form (pdf file) to IW3C2.

The Program Committee will select a small number of outstanding papers for fast-track journal publication in the ACM Transactions on the Web (ACM TWEB). One paper will be selected for the Best Paper Award.
