Call for Papers – WEB TECHNOLOGIES, 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seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on, but not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:

  • 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, …
  • 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
  • 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 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, at additional expense of USD 80 per page, to
add 2 more pages).

The submission system is not open yet.

Relevant Dates

  • August 31, 2011: Paper submission deadline
