The special track in Esports and Online Gaming invites original and novel high-quality research contributions to the area of esports and online games. The track’s emphasis is broad and invites all submissions in this area, including work that focuses on: the development and promise of new gaming technologies, the development of production tools for online games and esports, or work that focuses on understanding the psychology of gamers in this domain or how current online game technologies impacts players, communities, society, and culture. Work can range from large-scale analyses from massively multiplayer online games to small group interactions or local community-based social games. We welcome submissions from industrial researchers, especially with work that tackles pivotal topics such as toxicity and diversity. Given the rise of esports and live streaming, we furthermore encourage submissions covering these topics. Submissions will need to highlight how they relate to the future direction of the World Wide Web. Topics include (but are not limited to): - Esports - Video game live streaming - Massively multiplayer online games - Cloud gaming - Game Server Architectures - Crowdsourcing games - Game analytics and data visualization - Serious games - Mobile games - IoT and gaming - Community engagement - Extended reality (AR/VR) and location-based games - Game industry business models - Privacy and security in games - Diversity, equity, and inclusion in games - Novel game interactions over the Web

*Submission guidelines* For the special tracks, submissions are limited to 8 content pages, which should include all figures and tables, but excluding supplementary material and references. In addition, you can include 2 additional pages of supplementary material. The total number of pages with supplementary material and references must not exceed 12 pages. The papers must be formatted according to the instructions below. The papers must be formatted according to the instructions given at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template Submissions will be handled via Easychair, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thewebconf2022.

Track chairs: Jeanna Matthews (Clarkson University), Chiara Renso (ISTI – CNR) and Ricardo Baeza-Yates (Northeastern University, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Universidad de Chile)

For the last three years, The Web Conference has had a workshop on Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, Ethics and Society (FATES). For this year, we are expanding on those topics in a special track, Web For Good. Today’s web and social media solutions do not sufficiently address societal problems related to transparency, accountability, discrimination, misinformation, manipulation, environmental sustainability, climate action, and protection of living beings. We seek papers in which web and social media technologies are investigated, developed or applied to the protection of individual rights, particularly among vulnerable or marginalized communities and the fostering of sustainable development and healthy human societies. We also seek papers that take a critical look at current web and media technologies including concerns related to fairness, accountability, transparency, ethics, sustainable development and healthy society. The goal of this track is to gather researchers and developers from academia, industry, and civil society to present and debate methods for achieving a Web that is inclusive, non discriminative, sustainable, ethical, open, and that can appropriately address emergent societal challenges towards a Web for Good. To achieve this, we look for contributions that describe research results, tools, design techniques and experiments that are being developed to deal with fairness and accountability, transparency, societal impact, sustainable development and ethics on the Web. We welcome any submissions that address the broad goals of this Special Track and look forward to seeing the diverse ways in which authors will approach these themes. We especially encourage submissions in the following areas: - Algorithmic fairness and algorithmic bias, particularly on web data - Fairness, accountability, transparency, and ethics in web search and (social) web mining - Fairness-aware recommender systems and diversity in recommendation - Human-perceived consequences of surveillance algorithms - Fake news, social bots, hate speech, misinformation, and disinformation on social media - Credibility and reputation in social media - Ethics of opinion mining and opinion formation on the web - Ethical models/frameworks around web platforms and data - Innovative methods for studying/analyzing the fairness, accountability, transparency and ethics of web platforms - Impact of web platforms and algorithms on employment and the future of work - Transparency and ethics of web-scale data analysis - Transparency, fairness, and ethics of crowd-sourcing - Transparency-aware algorithms for online civic engagement - Ethics, privacy and legal audits on the use and analysis of sensitive data - Information/knowledge design/visualization for privacy - Models for ensuring transparency and responsibility of government data - Privacy-preserving and fairness-aware machine learning on the web - Transparency and Explainability in ML - Contribution of web technologies to UN Sustainable Development Goals

*Submission guidelines* For the special tracks, submissions are limited to 8 content pages, which should include all figures and tables, but excluding supplementary material and references. In addition, you can include 2 additional pages of supplementary material. The total number of pages with supplementary material and references must not exceed 12 pages. Authors may also submit short papers (up to 4 pages plus references) and discussion papers (up to 2 pages plus references). Discussion papers will not appear in the proceedings. The papers must be formatted according to the instructions given at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template Submissions will be handled via Easychair, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thewebconf2022. All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the ACM Digital Library
