Aims and rationale
Web-related technologies are becoming more and more pervasive and powerful, with the advent of new exciting concepts, protocols, languages, and technologies such as Social Software, Web Services, the Semantic Web, AJAX. Web applications are progressively evolving into rich and flexible environments where users can easily access documents, publish new content, share resources, and interact with others. This new class of ubiquitous software systems is emerging, and 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.
Technologies track of ACM SAC aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners from industry and academia working on practical and
foundational aspects of Web technologies as well as other technologies
that in the Web 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seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on,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 of Web
- Web Engineering
- Collaboration on the Web: Wikis, Social Software, and Web 2.0
- Electronic Publishing on the Web
- Emerging Web Technologies
- Expanding the reach of Social Software: Enterprise 2.0, Social Software, Business Process Management, ...
- Hypertext, hypermedia, markup languages, and XML-related technologies
- Performance, Scalability and Quality of Service on the Web
- Web Metrics, Monitoring and Analysis
- (Process-aware) Web Information Systems
- Rich User Experiences and Human Computer Interaction in Web applications
- Semantic-enhanced Web applications
- Web Browsers and Web Interfaces
- Web Accessibility
- Mobile Web and Cross-device Content Delivery
- Web Searching
Proceedings and Post-Proceedings
Papers accepted for the Web
Technologies track will be published by ACM both in the SAC 2011
proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
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 This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of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 2011 proceedings.
The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using the ACM format (guidelines are given on the SAC 2011 web site). Accepted full papers should not exceed 6 pages in a double column format (with the option, at additional expense of USD 80 per page, to add 2 more pages).
The submission system is now open at https://www.softconf.com/b/sac2011/.
