WADL 2023 will continue the WADL tradition to provide a forum and collaboration platform for international leaders from academia, industry, and government to discuss challenges, and share insights, in designing and implementing concepts, tools, and standards in the realm of web archiving. Together, we will explore the integration of web archiving and digital libraries, over the complete digital resource life cycle: creation/authoring, uploading, publishing on the web, crawling/collecting, compressing, formatting, storing, preserving, analyzing, indexing, supporting access, etc.

WADL 2023 will cover all topics of interest and specifically invite contributions from practitioners. Topics include but are not limited to:
