Call for Submissions

The success of the World Wide Web depends on its developers. From
Hypertext and Web Browsers to the APIs that extend the capabilities of
the Web, developers have played a very important role in making the Web
as ubiquitous as it is today. To celebrate this great driving force
behind the Web, we are rebooting the Developers Day at the World Wide
Web Conference.

The Developers Day will be forum for developers by developers where
cutting edge Web technologies will be discussed. The program consists of
a round of lightning talks followed by Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions
where attendees will be able to get an in-depth look at the software
presented in the form of a hands-on tutorial as well as a discussion of
open challenges, next steps, and application areas.

We are soliciting submissions from developers who have interesting
open-source software to showcase to the Web developer community. The
