WebSci and SIGWEB are pleased to announce the availability of a fund to help support attendance to WebSci 2023 in Austin, TX, USA.
WebSci’23 travel grants provide support up to $1,500 for students, early career scholars and other presenters from underrepresented regions, who have an accepted paper at the conference and submit scholarship applications by March 26, 2023. In the event that scholarship applications exceed available funds, preference will be given to presenters from underrepresented regions who are planning to attend the whole Web Conference. This fund offsets travel costs but won't cover registration.
To apply for the Travel Grant Program, please complete the online application at the link below no later than March 26, 2023. Notifications will be sent by March 31.
WebSci free online tickets are intended to help students to attend the conference virtually. In the event that requests exceed available tickets, preference will be given to students who are presenting a paper and those who are from underrepresented regions. To apply for a free ticket, please complete the online application at the link below by March 26, 2023.
To apply for either kind of support, kindly submit this very simple form: https://forms.gle/pLvQg7vjwYpXieXLA
This year WebSci’23 is co-located with The Web Conference, with both taking place in Austin, Texas. WebSci’23 will take place on Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 01. To participate in the WebSci’23 conference, you may choose to either register for WebSci-only at a rate of $100 for virtual participation or $450 early-bird rate for in-person participation, or register for The Web Conference, which allows for participation in WebSci’23 at no additional costs. For WebSci’23, there is only one rate for ACM members, non-ACM members, and students.
Registration is open and may be started here. For any enquiries regarding registration, please contact
In other exciting news, WebSci and SIGWEB have agreed to support students and early career scholars via travel grants and free online tickets. Details on the criteria and application procedures will be shared via mail updates and our social media channels soon, so stay tuned for this!
While we are still working on the last aspects of the conference program and the exact timings, we can promise you two conference days packed with interesting events, including keynotes by Dhiraj Murthy and David Rand (shared with The Web Conference) and attendance at The Web Conference’s keynote talk by Bob Metcalfe. WebSci’23 will close with an expert panel on Monday evening.
Front and center of the conference will, as always, of course be the authors and their submissions, discussing all aspects of this year’s theme Inequalities in the Face of Concurrent Crises. WebSci’23 will therefore have paper sessions on the full range of Web Science topics, approaching the theme from different perspectives - from Online Communities and Digital Analytics and Language and Emotions to sessions on Politics and Ideology, Harmful and Problematic Behavior, and Misinformation and Misperceptions. Over the coming weeks, we will present the individual paper sessions in more detail.
For this and everything else #WebSci23, keep an eye on the hashtag on social media, and check our website for further updates.
We are excited to announce 27 accepted tutorials at #TheWebConf 2023. The conference will take place in Texas, USA on April 30 - May 4 2023. See the complete list with teaser videos at https://www2023.thewebconf.org/program/tutorials/.
