Aims and rationale
The World Wide Web is changing. The advent of HTML 5, the increasing importance of AJAX and client-side scripting, the explosion of Web-based Social Networks as well as the advent of the Federated Social Web, the new frontiers of Semantic 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 play directly via browser. This 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.
This track aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia working on both 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 We seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following aspects of Web technologies:
- 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, Business Process Management, ...
- Federated Social Web software and protocols
- 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
- Web Engineering
- 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 2015 proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
Paper registration for the conference is required and allows the paper to be printed in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers will result in excluding the papers from the ACM/IEEE digital library.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to an international journal.
Student Research Competition (SRC) Program
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts, of maximum 4 pages in length, thought the START Submission system (see instructions below). Accepted abstracts are limited to 2 pages in ACM camera-ready format. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. Submissions must address original and unpublished research work related to a SAC track, with emphasis on the innovation behind the research idea.
All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners with expertise in the track to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to share their research work through poster and oral presentations and compete for the three top winning places. The SRC committee will evaluate the posters and oral presentations and select first, second, and third place winners. The winners will receive medals, cash awards, and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet dinner. Invited authors will receive $500 from ACM toward their travel to SAC. Furthermore, invited authors are eligible to apply for the SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) for support. The top three winners can proceed to the ACM National SRC Program for the grand finals.
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions:
- original and unpublished research;
- reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry;
- reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.
Each submitted paper will undergo a (double) blind review process and will be
refereed by at least three referees. To ease blind review, you shall remove
author names from your paper before submitting it.
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC 2015 proceedings.
The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using the
ACM format (guidelines are given on
the SAC 2015 web
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).
Regular papers can be submitted online at http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2015/Paper-SubmissionUploadPage.htm.
Papers for the Student Research Competition can be submitted online at http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2015/SRC-SubmissionUploadPage.htm .
