2nd CALL FOR PAPERS - International Workshop on The Future of the Web
for Collaborative Science 2010

The First International Workshop on The Future of the Web for
Collaborative Science (http://esw.w3.org/topic/HCLS/WWW2010/Workshop),
co-located with WWW'10, April 26 2010, Raleigh, NC, USA


The Web was originally invented with the physics community in mind, but
rapidly expanded to include other scientific disciplines, in particular
the health care and life sciences. By the mid 1990s the Web was already
being used to share data by biomedical professionals and
bioinformaticians. The Web continues to be immensely important to these
fields, however use cases have expanded considerably. Researchers are
now looking to share extremely large data sets on the Web, extract
insights from vast numbers of papers cross sub-disciplines, and use
social networking tools to aggregate data and engage in scientific
discussion. Furthermore, individuals are beginning to store their
medical records online, and some are sharing their genetic makeup in a
bid to find others with a similar profile. These use cases are pushing
the boundaries of what is currently possible with the Web. This half-day
workshop will present how scientists are currently using the Web, and
discuss the functionality that is required to make the Web an ideal
platform for both cutting edge scientific collaboration and for managing
health care related data.

The goals of this workshop are the following:
* Foster innovation in applying the latest web technologies to
collaborative HCLS
* Explore HCLS specific requirements for collaborating on the web, e.g.
trust, privacy, intellectual property, knowledge management, and the
scale and diversity of data
* Learn about the latest developments in data modeling, tools and
technologies for web-based collaborative science
* Bridge communication and knowledge transfer between the HCLS and web


We would encourage submission of papers covering the following topics:
* Web 2.0 applications for large, heterogeneous and complex data sets
* Models for collaborative scientific annotations
* Tools and applications for aggregating information across web sites
* Provenance, attribution, trust, and intellectual property
* Policy for data access, sharing, and anonymization

We seek three kinds of submissions:
* Full technical papers: up to 10 pages
* Short technical and position papers: up to 5 pages
* Demo description: up to 2 pages


Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three members the Program
Committee. Accepted papers will be published on the workshop web site.
All submissions must be formatted using the WWW2010 templates
(http://www2010.org/www/authors/submissions/formatting-guidelines/). The
address for the online submission system will be published shortly.


* Submission deadline- February 15, 2010
* Notification of acceptance - March 8, 2010
* Camera-ready version - March 22, 2010
* Workshop date - April 27 or 28, 2010

Workshop Chairs

* Jun Zhao, Oxford University
* Kei Cheung, Yale University
* M. Scott Marshall, Leiden University Medical Center / University of
