Call for Papers
The deadline has been extended to September 15!
Aims and rationale
With the advent of new powerful and exciting concepts, protocols and languages, such as Social Software, Web Services, Semantic Web, Ajax, etc., Web-related technologies are becoming more and more pervasive and powerful, paving the ground to the evolution of Web applications, that are not just the easiest path to zero client install software but are becoming the founding elements of an emerging class of ubiquitous software systems, fostering the evolution of new cooperation paradigms among people. Novel approaches and techniques, new tools and frameworks are needed to address the increasing complexity of these applications.
aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from industry
and academia working on practical and foundational aspects related to
Web technologies and other technologies that in the Web framework have
found new and unexpected application fields. We seek original,
unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on (but not
necessarily limited to) the following aspects related to Web
- Web engineering
- Markup Languages and XML-related technologies
- Cooperation on the Web: Social Software and Web 2.0
- Expanding the reach of Social Software: Enterprise 2.0, Social Software and Business Process Management, ...
- (Process-aware) Web Information Systems
- Semantic-enhanced Web applications
- Web searching
- Web Metrics, Monitoring and Analysis
- Performance, scalability and quality of service on the Web
- Web browser extensions
- Emerging Web technologies
Proceedings and Post-Proceedings
Papers accepted for the Web Technologies track will be published by ACM both in the SAC 2010 proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to an international journal (we have a pending agreement for a special issue of Springer's World Wide Web).
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. The accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC 2010 proceedings.
