a Track of the  27th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

25 – 29 March 2012, Riva del Garda (Trento), Italy

Call for Papers

Aims and rationale

The World Wide Web is changing. The advent of HTML 5, the increasing importance of AJAX and client-side scripting, the new frontiers of Semantic Web, the explosion of Web-based Social Networks as well as the advent of the Federated Social Web are only some examples of this general trend.

Web applications are progressively evolving into rich and flexible environments where users can easily access documents, publish content, listen to music, watch videos, draw pictures and even play directly via browser. This new class of ubiquitous software systems is gaining momentum and fosters the evolution of new ways for people to interact and cooperate. Novel approaches and techniques, new tools and frameworks are needed to address the increasing complexity of these applications.

The Web 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 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 We seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following aspects of Web technologies:

Proceedings and Post-Proceedings

Papers accepted for the Web Technologies track will be published by ACM both in the SAC 2012 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.

Paper Submission

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 original and unpublished research;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;
  3. reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.

Each submitted paper will undergo a blind review process and will be refereed by at least three referees.
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC 2012 proceedings.

The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using the ACM format (guidelines are given on the SAC 2012 web site).
Accepted full papers should not exceed 6 pages in a double column format (with the option, for an additional per-page fee, to add 2 more pages).

Papers can be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/c/sac2012/.
