HotWeb 2008:
Second IEEE Workshop on Hot Topics in Web Systems and Technologies

Evanston, Illinois, USA
October 13-14, 2008

HotWeb is a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners
interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of Internet
systems and applications.

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE-CS Technical
Committee on the Internet, the workshop seeks to act as a conduit for
the presentation of novel approaches used in support of performance,
scalability, and security of Internet applications, including Web
searching and indexing, content distribution and delivery networks,
Web services, and edge and grid computing.

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Content delivery architectures	
- Peer-to-Peer systems
- Support for mobile and wireless systems
- Web caching and replication
- Edge services and dynamic content delivery
- Multimedia content distribution
- Content placement and request routing
- Overlay networks		
- Measurement studies of deployed systems
- Security and privacy
- Wide-area upload and content gathering
- Novel web-based applications
- Web/database integration
- Internet telephony
- Information retrieval and searching
- Electronic commerce

HotWeb 2008 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, by the IEEE CS
Technical Committee on the Internet, and by the AquaLab Group in
Distributed Systems at Northwestern University.

Papers describing timely research contributions in HotWeb's areas of
interest are solicited. Papers reporting on initial results as well as
papers discussing mature research projects or case studies of deployed
systems are equally sought out.

Submitted papers must be neither previously published nor under review
by another workshop, conference or journal. Only electronic
submissions in PDF will be accepted. Submitted papers must be written
in English, must be no longer than 6 pages (minimum 10pt font), must
render without error using standard PDF viewing tools, must print on
US-Letter-sized paper, and must conform to standard IEEE conference
submission guidelines.

Notice that at least one of the authors of each paper accepted for
presentation in HotWeb 2008 must be registered. All papers presented
at the workshop will be published in formal workshop proceedings and
will be part of the IEEE Digital Library.
