ABOUT THE WEB CONFERENCE
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
For more than two decades, the International World Wide Web (WWW)
Conference has been the premier venue for researchers, academics, businesses, and
standards bodies to come together and discuss latest updates and the future of the Web.
Known earlier as the WWW conferences, the series will change title from 2018 to become
The Web Conference.

In addition to the main conference research tracks, The Web Conference 2018
(formerly WWW2018), will include several alternate tracks and a series of
collocated events. The Web Conference 2018 will offer the possibility to present,
showcase and publish results and advances about Web related research and development.
This joint call for contributions identifies the major tracks and collocated events.
The full list is available on the Web:

ALTERNATE TRACK: THE BIG WEB
.....................

Many of today's most successful Internet companies and enterprises are
built on the collection and analysis of Web data. The sheer volume and richness of
these data sets has stimulated a massive wave of innovation. In addition, this
revolution has also sparked important debate on data privacy policies, ethics and
governance. The BIG Web Alternate Track will bring together academic and industry leaders
in the Big Data space to share the state of the art and its successful applications in
businesses. This event continues the BIG (Big Data Innovators Gathering)
series of events co-located with the WWW conferences in 2014-2017, but is
incorporated for the first time as an alternate track in The Web Conf 2018. The BIG Web track will
include keynotes and a panel on hot and emerging topics. We also invite paper
submissions that are related to the theme of Big Data on the Web, and
highlight novel developments in the foundations, infrastructure, applications and
implications of Big Data.

Sometimes the less you say, the more people remember. This is the idea
behind the Minute of madness: The Web Conference 2018 participants can take the stage
for one minute to present their idea, project, or research. To ensure that the
audience grasps your story, we will ask you beforehand to send brief answers to a
couple of elementary questions, along with a single slide.

The Poster Track is a forum to foster interactions among researchers and
practitioners by allowing them to present their new and innovative work
in-progress.
The poster session will give conference attendees an opportunity to learn
novel on-going research projects through informal interactions. Submitted
posters are expected to be aligned with one or more of the relevant topics to The Web
Conference community. The Poster Track covers the same topic areas as the main
conference.
Posters will be peer-reviewed by members of the Poster Program Committee
based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

DEMOS
.....................

The Demos Track allows researchers and practitioners to demonstrate new
innovative systems implemented and tested in the interest areas of the conference.
Demos are encouraged from both academic researchers and industrial practitioners with
prototypes or in-production deployments, as well as from any W3C-related
activities.
Software (including games or learning platforms) and hardware must show
innovative use of Web-based techniques and must make clear which aspects of the
system will be demonstrated, and how. They should clearly state the significance of the
contribution to Web technology or its applications. Demos will be
peer-reviewed by members of the Demo Track Program Committee based on originality,
significance, quality, and clarity of each submission.

attendees.
It is expected that tutorials will address an audience with a varied range of
interests and background: beginners, developers, designers, researchers,
practitioners, users, lecturers and representatives of governments and
funding agencies who wish to learn new technologies. We will pay particular
attention to tutorial proposals that bridge different areas such as Web and Social
Sciences, Web and Disaster Management, Web and other fields in Computer Science.

HACKATHON / HACKATEEN
.....................

The Hackathon this year is open to all, and will accept competitors as
teams from 2 to 8 persons. It consists in writing a Web game or a demo, the theme is "our
planet". The game/demo can be very basic, it can be a strategy, an action
or a quiz-based game, single or multi player, or even zero player if it's a
demo. It can use abstract graphics or sprites (animated series of images), hi-res
graphics or adopt a pixelated retro gaming look, such as old space invader like game,
or the game/demo can be text based. It can use smooth animation techniques and an
HTML5 canvas or just rely on DOM/CSS. The challenge here consists in not using any
external game framework: just plain JavaScript and basic APIs included in
your browser to code the core of your game. External CSS/JS/WebComponents libs are
allowed, but do not use a full game framework.
