CFP: Search Track

Track chairs:


We invite research contributions to the Search track at the 32nd edition of The Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be hosted at Austin, TX, US, on April 30 - May 4, 2023 (/www2023/)

The Search Track welcomes submissions of original, high-quality research related to the search and retrieval of Web content. We encourage submissions that explore how people understand, engage and interact with Web content through search systems in the wide sense, including discovery, recommendations or question answering, and how search systems should be designed to efficiently and effectively support those interactions. Research on both theoretical and applied aspects of search-related tasks is encouraged.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

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 address research challenges of searching and retrieving content on the web or web-based ecosystems/platforms.

In case you have doubts whether your paper fits the scope of this track, please contact the track chairs:
