Call For Papers

One of the WebSci'24 events on the 21st of May 2024 will be the Interdisciplinary PhD Symposium, offering PhD students the opportunity to present and discuss their research plans and ongoing research for an interdisciplinary audience. We aim for a lively and engaged discussion, maximizing early-stage ideas exchange and interdisciplinary discussion on emerging or novel ideas/research.

To achieve this, we are seeking up to 5 pages (including references, appendices, etc.) single-blind submissions, and the student should be the single author. All papers should adopt the current ACM SIG Conference proceedings template (acmart.cls). Please submit papers as PDF files using the ACM template, either in Microsoft Word format (available at under "Word Authors") or with the ACM LaTeX template on the Overleaf platform, which is available at In particular; please ensure that you are using the two-column version of the appropriate template.

All contributions will be judged by the PhD Symposium Program Committee. Accepted submissions will be included in the WebSci'24 companion proceedings and allowed for oral presentation during the PhD Symposium on May 21. Further, a limited number of travel grants is foreseen (please follow the WebSci'24 dissemination channels for further details).

The Web Science conference welcomes participation from all disciplines including, but not limited to, arts, computer and information sciences, communications, economics, humanities, informatics, law, linguistics, philosophy, social and political sciences, psychology, and sociology, in pursuit of an understanding of the Web. This conference is unique in bringing these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue. We particularly welcome contributions that seek to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Theoretical, methodological, and ethical approaches for Web science
• Web practices – individual and/or collective and/or institutional
• Web science and AI
• The architecture and philosophy of the Web
