The International World Wide Web Conference Committee Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2) cordially invites you to participate in the 17th International World Wide Web Conference to be held on April 21-25, 2008 in Beijing, China. The first WWW conference was held in 1994 at CERN, where the Web was born. Since then, the conference series has become the premier venue for academics and industry to present, demonstrate, and discuss the latest ideas about the Web. The technical program for the five-day conference will include refereed paper presentations, plenary sessions, panels, and poster sessions. The WWW2008 program will also include Tutorials and Workshops, a "WWW in China" track, a W3C track, a Developers track, and Exhibitions.

WWW2008 seeks original papers describing research in all areas of the Web. Papers may be submitted to the following tracks:

In addition, the conference solicits original research papers to the following alternate tracks:

Submissions should present original reports of substantive new work and can be up to 10 pages in length. Papers should properly place the work within the field, cite related work, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of the work and its contribution to the field. We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. General queries regarding can be sent to: Email contact: program-chairs at

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from an International Program Committee. Accepted papers will appear in online proceedings published by the ACM Digital Library and the conference's web site. Authors of accepted papers will retain copyright to their work, but will be required to sign a copyright release form (word / pdf) to IW3C2.

Please see detailed submission information and requirements from the Submission Information and Requirements page.

The Program Committee will select a small number of excellent papers for fast-track journal publication in the ACM Transactions on the Web (ACM TWEB).


The Developers Track will focus on the WWW development community. Participants are invited to present new code and technology, with talks ranging from 5 to 45 minutes. Demos and walk-throughs of technical "nitty-gritty" are encouraged. Please submit a 1-2 page write-up of your proposed talk, slides, or a demo (url, screenshots, or video). Focus areas include, but are not limited to, mobile web, social networking, security, health, education, science, semantic web, mash-ups, web software/tools, and protocols. See more details from the Developers Track CFP page.

Panels should focus on emerging technologies, controversial issues, or unsolved problems in the World Wide Web community to stimulate lively, thoughtful, and thought-provoking debate. We expect the panelists to actively engage the audience and help them gain a deeper understanding of the issues. The goal of a panel is to debate and thus panels should always reflect more than one point of view.

All areas of interests to WWW participants are acceptable as a panel topic. Panel proposals will be accepted on the basis of their audience appeal, credentials of panelists, originality, and focus on disputed topics. See more details from the Panels CFP page.

The poster track at the WWW2008 conference will continue the established tradition of providing an interaction opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their new and innovative work-in-progress and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. It gives conference attendees a way to learn about novel on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting. It also provides poster presenters with an excellent opportunity to receive invaluable feedback from knowledgeable sources. See more details from the Posters CFP page.

Tutorial proposals are desired for both half-day and full-day sessions on topics of current and ongoing relevance to Web design, services, operation, use, and evaluation. See more details from the Tutorialss CFP page.

WWW2008 workshops are intended to advance knowledge, research, development, and professional practice in new and emerging fields of Web activity, providing a more focused, in-depth, and interactive environment than is possible in a traditional conference session.

The goal for a workshop is to bring designers, developers, information architects, practitioners and researchers together to exchange ideas and experiences, establishing common ground in research areas or practical problems and resulting in new contacts, new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future activity. See more details from the Workshops CFP page.
