Submission Procedure

We welcome papers describing original contributions in all fields of Web-related research. Its contribution should be clearly explained in both general and technical terms, and authors should make every effort to ensure that its technical content is understandable by a broad audience without taking away from its impact and significance.

All submissions will be reviewed by the programme committee for inclusion in the AWC 2015 proceedings. Each paper will be judged on its originality, significance, technical quality, relevance to AWC 2015, and presentation. Papers should be *no more than 10 pages* in length conforming to the formatting instructions for the Australian Computer Society (ACS) (http://www.acs.org.au/) - Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology (CRPIT) (http://crpit.com/) Australian Computer Science Communications series..

Submission to AWC 2015 will only be accepted electronically using EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=awc2015). Authors are requested to submit an abstract first, then to upload the full paper using the paper-id assigned by the system.

By submitting to the conference authors accept that they are aware of the Guidelines on Research Practice in Computer Science by the Computer Research and Education Association (CORE) (http://www.core.edu.au/) and the policy listed at CRPIT (http://crpit.com/). In particular, authors are encouraged to review the points on authorship.

Best Student Paper

A prize will be awarded to the best student paper as chosen by the programme committee. The student paper award is given on the conditions that:

(1) all other non-student co-authors confirm to the program chair(s) that the nominated author has had a substantial participation into the paper; and

(2) the student academic supervisor confirms to the program chair that the contribution reflected in the paper is the result of a major component from progress for a research higher degree 

The proceedings will be included in the ACM digital library and indexed on Scopus and DBLP.
Please note that it is ACSW conference policy that at least one author of all accepted papers to the conferences and workshops in the series would both register and present at the event concerned. Failure to do so without a reason acceptable to the organisers of the event will result in the paper being retrospectively withdrawn from both the proceedings and all citation sources.
