Let me first state that, I don't know anything about organizing a 
conference nor all of the variables involved to make it successful. 
Hence, this is just a request, a proposal if you will to see your 
position on what will it take for the conference to request research 
papers submissions in Web friendly formats.

I have the following in mind and I hope you can share your views on it 
publicly. For the final submission:

* Accept a document in XHTML+RDFa (+ other technologies) as well as in PDF.

* Same as above, while the print stylesheet conforms to desired 
presentation (e.g., ACM, LNCS)

* Like above, but a public URL of the document. For example, a link to 
the research, which may be along the lines of a blog post.

Needless to say at this point, if I'm not getting ahead of myself, many 
agree that something along the lines of HTML+RDFa would be ideal but we 
perceive there are some difficulties to get there. Until the perception 
and the solutions is ironed out e.g., [1], we can still work towards it 
any way.

I would like to know whether you can at least allow Web friendly formats 
from here on end. A shift in that direction would be invaluable IMHO.
