The full day workshop schedule is planned with two half-day sessions that will be split by the conference planned lunch break.

Note that our tentative schedule currently has this planned for 12:30-13:30, but we will update accordingly once provided further guidance as to the standardized workshop schedule for WWW’24.

Our program will consist of the following main components: 1) invited keynotes from experts in the field of data-centric AI coming from both industry and academia to create a synergistic atmosphere and to stimulate collaborations, 2) contributed research oral talks selected from the set of accepted works into DCAI, 3) future directions panel discussion that will be composed of our keynote speakers given their expertise in this domain, 4) contributed poster sessions both before lunch and after the final remarks to allow all those with works accepted into the workshop (not just those selected for oral talks) to present their work and socialize stimulating new ideas and potential collaborations.

Selection Process

The six invited keynote speakers from both academia and industry (three each) are planned to be well recognized in the WWW community, especially in the subcommunity focused on data-centric AI. We note that each keynote will be presented as a lecture with slides and there will be a short Q/A session at the end of each keynote.

This workshop CFP is for paper submissions that will undergo the standard double-blind peer-review process. We will invite a well-experienced set of program committee members for DCAI to first guarantee each paper submission will be reviewed by at least two PC members and second to ensure an informed and fair evaluation of the work being submitted. Based upon the reviews provided by PC members, the final recommendation of acceptance or rejection to DCAI at WWW’24 will be made by the workshop organizers.

The detailed review comments and notification letter will be sent to the authors accordingly along with detailed information as to whether they have been accepted for an oral or poster presentation (as noted above in the tentative workshop schedule).

Online Materials

A website for this workshop will be made available online if our workshop is accepted into WWW’24, which will include all the relevant information and materials including CFP, schedule, organization and PC member lists, keynote speaker and talk information, presentation slides and posters, accepted papers, etc. We will extend the website from DCAI at WWW’24 to include the details for our proposed second iteration to be held at WWW’24.
