CALL FOR PAPERS: WEB TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS

Special Track of the 18th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC2003)

March 9-12, 2003, Melbourne, Florida, USA

SCOPE AND GOALS

The World Wide Web has become the standard computing platform for the
development of next-generation information systems. A new wave of
Web-based applications such as corporate portals, supply chain
automation, and online marketplaces, is driving the need for a more
open, flexible, adaptable, and distributed infrastructure. In
addition, Web applications are required to be ubiquitous, highly
scalable, reliable, accessible from different devices, usable, and
personalized with respect to various user requirements. In this
setting, Web applications are becoming increasingly complex thereby
creating a need for appropriate theoretical foundations, development
methodologies, and supporting technology, drawing on different areas
of computer science: databases, artificial intelligence and
agent-based systems, programming languages and algorithms, distributed
computing, information retrieval, semantic modeling, human-computer
interaction, etc. The "Web Technologies and Applications" track at SAC
2003 will aim at promoting research directions on novel applications
for the World Wide Web, by providing a forum where academic and
industrial researchers on different areas can share and disseminate
ideas related to innovative methods and technologies.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Original regular and applied research papers are solicited. 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 2003 proceedings.

Areas of particular interest for the track include (but are not 
limited to):

* Web services
* Semantic Web
* Languages for the Web (XML, RDF)
* Data models for the Web
* Query systems for the Web
* Web mining
* Web searching and crawling
* Web agents
* Web design methodologies
* Personalization of Web applications
* Web usability
* Multimedia on the Web
* Collaborative Web systems
* E-Learning
* E-Commerce and E-Business
* Security and integrity issues for the Web
* Mobility on the Web

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Papers must be submitted electronically. Manuscripts of no more than
5,000 words (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced), in either PDF or
Postscript format, must be sent to the e-mail address of the Special
Track (sac2003@mail2.elet.polimi.it). Submissions should be printable
on a standard printer on common paper formats. Please use a Postscript
viewer such as Ghostview to check the portability of Postscript
documents. Acceptable compression formats are Zip and Tar.

In order to facilitate blind reviews, the author(s) name(s) and
address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and
self-references should be in the third person. Authors should also
submit a separate cover sheet, reporting the title of the paper, the
author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the contact address
(including e-mail, telephone, and fax).

In case of problems with the electronic submission or for any other
question, please feel free to contact the Track Chairs.
