Track chairs: (

We invite contributions to the Posters and Demos Track to be held at The Web Conference 2022 (formerly known as WWW). The conference will take place online, hosted by Lyon, France, on April 25-29, 2022.

Instructions for authors of Posters and Demos submissions

The Web Conference is the premier conference focused on understanding the current state and the evolution of the Web through the lens of different disciplines, including computing, computational social science, economics and political sciences.

The Posters and Demos Track is a forum to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners by allowing them to present and demonstrate their new and innovative work. In addition, the Posters and Demos track will give conference attendees an opportunity to learn novel on-going research projects through informal interactions. Demos submissions must be based on an implemented and tested system.

Posters and Demos papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Poster Committee based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Accepted papers will appear in the Companion conference proceedings. In addition, accepted work authors will be asked to create a digital poster to present their work during the Posters and Demos track at the conference.

Submitted posters are expected to be aligned with one or more of the relevant topics of The Web Conference community, including (but not limited to):

  • Web-related Economics, Monetization, and Online Markets
  • Web Search
  • Web Security, Privacy, and Trust
  • Semantics and Knowledge
  • Social Network Analysis and Graph Algorithms
  • Social Web
  • Systems and Infrastructure
  • User Modeling, Personalization and Accessibility
  • Web and Society
  • Web Mining and Content Analysis
  • Web of Things, Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing
  • Esports and Online Gaming
  • History of the Web
  • Web for good

Submission guidelines

​Posters and Demos papers are limited to four pages, including references. Submissions are NOT anonymous. It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the required format. In particular, the format cannot be modified with the objective of squeezing in more material. Submissions that do not comply with the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.

​Submissions will be handled via Easychair, at, selecting the Poster-Demo track.

​We also highly encourage to include external material related to the poster or demo (e.g., code repository on Github or equivalent) in the submission.

Formatting the submissions

​Submissions must adhere to the ACM template and format published in the ACM guidelines at Please remember to add Concepts and Keywords. Please use the template in traditional double-column format to prepare your submissions. For example, word users may use Word Interim Template, and latex users may use sample-sigconf template. For overleaf users, you may want to use

Submissions for review must be in PDF format. They must be self-contained and written in English. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines, or do not view or print properly, will be rejected without review.

Ethical use of data and informed consent

As a published ACM author, you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects.

When appropriate, authors are encouraged to include a section on the ethical use of data and/or informed consent in their paper.

Note that submitting your research for approval by the author(s)’ institutional ethics review body (IRB) may not always be sufficient. Even if such research has been signed off by your IRB, the programme committee might raise additional concerns about the ethical implications of the work and include these concerns in its review.

Publication policy

Accepted papers will require a further revision in order to meet the requirements and page limits of the camera-ready format required by ACM. Instructions for the preparation of the camera-ready versions of the papers will be provided after acceptance.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the ACM Digital Library. To be included in the Companion Proceedings, at least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper.
