The Demo Track offers a full day focused exclusively on innovative WWW-relevant projects from academic labs, national and regional funding programs, as well as corporate, start-up, and nonprofit channels. We seek to bring together a diverse community of applied researchers, as well as partnerships in the social and physical sciences/arts, to show the state-of-the-art in research and applications.

We are soliciting submissions from a broad spectrum of projects, whether publicly or privately funded. We will give preference to open innovation, especially contributions to open source, open data, or contributing to socially impactful goals. However, we welcome submissions from especially interesting projects that do not exactly fit these criteria if they provide new insights and compelling demonstrations.

Projects will be given 5-15 minute pitch/presentation slots, plus demonstration time, and a poster slot. All projects must provide instructive and compelling demonstrations, NOT marketing.

Submit extended abstracts (1-2 pages) to   Demo Track:

  • Brief description of the application, goals, and partners;
  • What is the main innovation that you would like to show?
  • How does this fit with the WWW ecosystem?
  • If available, provide links to online demonstrations (recommended), or a description of what you plan to show interactively to the audience;
  • If available, provide links to the project URL, repositories, and other dissemination materials you have available (optional);

Evaluation of projects will be based on the level of innovation and research breakthroughs, fit with WWW, how compelling the demonstrations/additional information are, and the need to create an event with a broad array of themes.
