We invite the research community to submit nominations for the Seoul Test of Time Award, which will be presented at The ACM Web Conference 2023 in April-May 2023 in Austin, Texas. The award will be given to a paper that has been published in The Web Conference series, formerly known as WWW.
Inaugurated in 2015, the Seoul Test of Time Award is made possible by the generous contributions of the organizers of the WWW’2014 conference, held in Seoul, South Korea. A list of the previous award winners is available online.
This year, we will focus on papers that were published in the research track of the conference proceedings in 2013 or before, and which demonstrated a lasting significant scientific, technical, industrial, or social impact over the years.
If you intend to nominate a paper, you should have no conflict of interest with any of the authors of the paper. To nominate a paper, please upload it to EasyChair on or before Jan 20, 2023, completing the submission form as follows:
Thank you for your interest in The ACM Web Conference!
on behalf of the Selection Committee of the Seoul Test of Time Award of the Web Conference
The WebConf Steering Committee (SC) hereby invites eligible proposals to host the annual 2026 ACM Web Conference (TheWebConf 2026). The conference typically takes place in April of each year, but organizers have some flexibility in the proposed scheduling. The typical number of attendees to a WebConf is between 800-1200. More information on the Web Conference series can be found here.
The Web Conference (formerly known as WWW conference) is a yearly international conference on the topic of the World Wide Web. The conference began in 1994 at CERN and is organized each year by a local team of volunteers from different parts of the world who come together to organize the conference. The Conference aims to provide the world with a premier forum for discussion and debate about the evolution of the Web, the standardization of its associated technologies, and the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The conference brings together researchers, policymakers, developers, users, and commercial ventures — indeed all those who are passionate about the Web and what it has to offer.
Starting in 2022, the Web Conference will be formally integrated as an ACM-organized event. ACM provides extensive information for conference organizers here.

Hybrid Conference, Hosted in Atlanta, Georgia, USA
The 31st ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) provides an international forum for presentation and discussion of research on information and knowledge management, as well as recent advances on data and knowledge bases. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future directions of research by soliciting and reviewing high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. An important part of the conference is the Workshops program which focuses on timely research challenges and initiatives. CIKM has a strong tradition of workshops devoted to emerging areas of database management, IR, and related fields.
The program features five keynotes, twelve compelling workshops and seven tutorials that highlight the breadth of interesting problems being explored in the fields of Information and Knowledge management.
SIGWEB has just launched a YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/ACMSIGWEB. Among others, this channel will feature recordings of keynotes from SIGWEB sponsored and co-sponsored conferences. Currently, you can watch the TheWebConf 2022 keynotes given by Jaime Teevan, Virginia Dignum and Prabhakar Raghavan, as well as the ACM UMAP 2021 keynotes by Helen Nissenbaum, Maarten de Rijke and Julita Vassileva. Enjoy and do not forget to subscribe to our channel for future updates.
The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems & Technology (TIST) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC. TIST was established in 2010 and has been experiencing steady growth, with 355 submissions received in 2020.
Nominations, including self nominations, are invited for a three-year term as TIST EiC, beginning on July 1, 2021. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.
Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM policies. The Board relies on EiCs to ensure that the content of the journal is of high quality and that the editorial review process is both timely and fair. He/she has final say on acceptance of papers, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. A complete list of responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position Descriptions. Additional information can be found in the following documents:
Nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the nominee should be considered. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of TIST. The deadline for submitting nominations is May 20, 2021, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Please send all nominations to the nominating committee chair, V.S. Subrahmanian (
