Important note for the authors:

At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the conference (at least three days) and present the paper at the conference.

Important note about Proceedings:

Starting in 2018, the proceedings of The Web Conference will be published as HTML5 documents. The new workflow required for this change has not been finalized yet by our publisher ACM. As a consequence, the definitive submissions guidelines are not available for the moment, but will be published on the conference website as soon as possible. At this point we can only encourage the authors to use the ‘sigconf’ ACM template for their submissions, but they may have to change the format for the final versions.

Important note about Rights and Permissions:

IW3C2 shall hold copyright in the Proceedings and in the individual articles published in the Proceedings and shall grant the public permission to use the licensed material contained in the individual articles of the Proceedings under the terms and conditions defined in the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC-BY 4.0).
The Proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library. IW3C2 will publish, on its Web site, persistent links to the Open Access versions of the articles of the Proceedings hosted in the ACM Digital Library. ACM formatted DOIs will be registered via Crossref by the ACM.
The IW3C2 Rights Form consistent with the terms stated above is available. We remind you that this agreement is signed with IW3C2 and not with the ACM. The ACM will be responsible for collecting the signed copyright transfer Agreements on behalf of the IW3C2.
