We invite contributions to the Industry 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.

The Web has proven to be a fertile ground for industrial research, and companies from small to large, from brand new to long established, are making an ongoing impact on the state of the art in science and engineering. The Web Conference 2022 Industry Track highlights such research in applied settings.

In 2022, the Industry Track will feature:

  • Presentations of research papers by authors from companies, sometimes in joint collaboration with academia, contributing original results obtained in an industrial environment, having clear industry relevance and highlighting new research challenges motivated by practical tasks and practical settings. In this setting, the track is “by invitation” only: the Chairs will invite papers that have already undergone the rigorous peer review process of the research tracks, but appeared to be distinct from typical research papers in that they focus to a greater extent on solving non-trivial real-world problems and on building of systems that are deployed or are in the process of being deployed.
  • Presentations of short papers specifically written for the Industry Track following the instructions below.

Both kinds of papers will be published in the companion proceedings of The Web Conference, in the ACM Digital Library.

Submission guidelines for short papers

For the industry tracks, submissions are limited to 4 content pages, which should include all figures and tables, but excluding references. The papers must be formatted according to the instructions below. Submissions are NOT anonymous.
