Papers must be submitted in PDF according to the new ACM format published in ACM guidelines, selecting the generic sigconf sample.

We accept two types of submissions, i.e., full papers and “disruptive” papers.

  •  Full papers can be up to six (6) pages, plus 2 additional pages if needed.
  • “Disruptive” papers will be of maximum 2 pages. They would primarily propose a disruptive idea in the framework of the workshop topics. A disruptive idea should be really novel. So, for instance, working on improving the quality on an already existing approach is not disruptive (usually), while proposing a totally new problem addressing a particularly new challenge, is disruptive. Disruptive papers will be evaluated by the PC, according to a standard review process.

Both regular and disruptive (accepted) papers will be included in the workshops proceedings, which will be published as companion proceedings of The Web Conference.

Submissions must be self-contained and in English. Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines may be rejected without review.

Please follow the submission link  and Select the full name of the workshop in the submission list.
Other than that, submission guidelines are the same as for the main conference and are available here. At least one author of an accepted paper must register, attend the workshop and present the paper.
