We invite research contributions to the Systems and Infrastructure track at the 30th edition of the Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be held April 19-23, 2021 in Ljubljana, Slovenia (

The Systems and Infrastructure track solicits exciting and unpublished original papers describing the performance, architecture, and construction of systems related to the Web.  This includes systems generating the content, delivering content via the Web, as well as enabling infrastructures behind such a process. This track emphasizes on innovative experimental research as well as insightful experiences with real-world impacts. Research at the intersection of this track with other tracks needs to address large-scale impactful problems involving significant system aspects.  Our goal is to bring together professionals from academic and industrial communities to discuss emerging perspectives and new system challenges on the Web.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Cloud and edge computing for Web systems
  • Content delivery networks
  • Distributed storage, caching, and replication
  • Highly available, reliable, and trusted Web systems and infrastructures
  • Resource management in data centers, and parallel and distributed platforms
  • Scalable cloud and Web services, and federated systems
  • Scalable machine learning systems and data-intensive processing
  • Web performance, measurement, and characterization
  • Web protocols, languages, tools, and environments
