WWW 2013 submission deadline is in a week from now (27th Nov 2012) and I thought it would be good to review the accepted papers from WWW 2012 last year.
WWW 2012 was held in Lyon, France from 12th-16th August. Here is the main link to the conference: http://www2012.wwwconference.org/ . Complete list of accepted papers is available here. The conference also has poster sessions (short 2 page submissions) which are available here. The deadline for poster submission is about 3 weeks after notification of the full papers (it is 22nd Feb 2013 for WWW2013)
Paper submission to WWW is divided into various tracks. It is interesting to see the statistics of number of submissions and acceptance rate in various tracks. The statistics are available here. The “Social Networks” track has total of 185 submissions, more than combined submissions in “Web Search”(78) and “Web Mining” (100). The “Internet Monetization and Incentives” track had total of 52 submissions, with acceptance rate of 21.1%, much higher than the average acceptance rate for conference which was just 12.2%.
