Submission Instructions for Refereed Papers

The conference submission site is open for alternate paper track submissions.

  • Refereed paper track submission is closed.
  • Each article should be submitted to a single conference track; please do not submit an article multiple times to multiple tracks
  • Identify any cross-track relevance of your work in the Comments to Chair at the end of the form. This information will be used by the chairs to check the tracks and assign the most appropriate reviewers.
  • It is in your interest to choose carefully from the Technical areas checklist and provide a relevant set of Keywords. These will be used to help select appropriate reviewers for your paper.
  • Submissions can be edited up to the deadline.
  • New revisions of the article can be re-uploaded until the deadline.
  • Questions about the submission process or track area should be emailed to the track chairs

Accepted papers for the refereed papers tracks (see the Call for Papers) will appear in the conference proceedings published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Alternate track papers (Industrial Practice and Experience and Developing Regions) will appear in a separate proceedings. All accepted papers will be contained on the Conference CD, and will also be accessible to the general public via http://www2006.org/ . Authors are required to transfer copyright. Authors of accepted papers must sign and return a copyright release form. The official language of the conference is English.

Position papers

New for WWW2006: We solicit submissions of "position papers" articulating high-level architectural visions, describing challenging future directions, or critiquing current design wisdom. Accepted position papers will be presented at the conference and appear in the proceedings. Both "regular papers" and "position papers" are subject to the same rigorous reviewing process, but the emphasis may differ---regular papers should present significant reproducible results while position papers may present preliminary work rich in implications for future research.

*Papers submitted as "position papers" must have titles that begin with the words "Position Paper."*/ E.g., "Position Paper: How AI, Nanotechnology, and Wireless Will Transform the Web."

Copyright Information

Authors must assign to the International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) the copyright of the accepted papers for the full period of copyright and all renewals, extensions, revisions and revivals together with all accrued rights of action throughout the world in any form, including as part of IW3C2 and the Conference Web site, on CD-ROM and in translation, or on videocassette, broadcast, cablecast, laserdisc, multimedia or any other media format now or hereafter known.

Authors also need to accept that IW3C2 will allow the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) to distribute or sell the papers as part of WWW2005 Refereed Paper Track Proceedings in print and in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors retain all proprietary rights other than copyright, such as patent and trademark rights, as well as the rights to publish the work on authors' personal or corporate Web site.
