The Web Conference third Special track CFP: History of the Web

The 2022 edition of The Web Conference is the 31st in the series and takes place on the 32nd anniversary of the Web. During this period, the Web and its applications have become widely available around the world and many new technologies have emerged. The evolution of the Web has been made of great scientific advances, but also of anecdotal events that have contributed to build the Web as we know it today.

After more than thirty years, it is time to keep track of all these events with “History of the Web” Special track.

History of the Web chairs:

  •  Dame Wendy Hall (University of Southampton, UK)
  •  Luc Mariaux (École Centrale de Lyon – France (retired))

CFP is now open, submit your abstract before November 11th at

Tutorials are intended to provide a high-quality learning experience to conference attendees. It is expected that tutorials will address an audience with a varied range of interests and backgrounds: beginners, developers, designers, researchers, practitioners, users, lecturers, and representatives of governments and funding agencies who wish to learn new technologies.

Submit your Tutorial proposal by Thursday 4 November 2021 at and select the Tutorial track.

Industry Track

The track features presentations of research papers by authors from many companies, contributing original results obtained in an industrial environment, having clear industry relevance and highlighting new research challenges motivated by practical tasks and practical settings.

There is no specific CFP for the Industry Track. Some papers will be selected among those proposed for research tracks.

In 2022, the Industry Track will feature two kinds of contributions:

  •  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.

Submit your short paper abstract by Thursday 11 November 2021 at and select the Industry track.

Industry Track Chairs:

  •  Petra Selmer (Neo4j, UK)
  •  Joshua Shinavier (LinkedIn, USA)
