This edition of The Web Conference Poster and Demos track boosts open science best practices highlighting papers with the ARTIFACT badge.

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 enable conference attendees to learn novel ongoing 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):

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.

Upgrade your poster or demo to ARTIFACT level!!

In this edition, we are encouraging open science best practices by highlighting posters and demo papers that provide open artifacts to be (re)used by the community.

If you want your poster or demo to opt for the ARTIFACT badge, just select during your submission the artifact type that fits your paper`'`s main contribution :

What happens next?
