First CFP: ACM SAC 2008 Special Track on Web Technologies

Special Track on Web Technologies of the 23rd ACM Symposium on Applied
                March 16 – 20, 2008, Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil

Published by ACM
Overview : 
The increasing popularity and advances in Web technologies (XML, Web
services, semantic Web, etc.) are enabling the development of new classes of
applications and new trends in the design of Information Systems.
This track focuses on emerging Web technologies, architectures, and
methodologies for building and managing advanced Web information systems.
The Internet and the related technologies have created an interconnected
world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed
collaboratively, communities of users with similar interests can be formed
to achieve efficiency and improve performance, while security threats are
present more than ever before.
The goal of this track is to bring together researchers from academia and
industry who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects
of Web Technologies. It will present an opportunity for researchers to get
together and share recent developments and techniques in order to identify
the critical problems and the most promising research avenues. This track
addresses the challenging Web technologies issues focusing on exploring
novel methods, techniques, and trends to build up and manage information
