a Track of the  25th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

22 – 26 March 2010, Sierre, Switzerland

                          CALL FOR PAPERS

Aims and scope

With the advent of new powerful and exciting concepts, protocols and
languages, such as Social Software, Web Services, Semantic Web, Ajax,
etc., Web-related technologies are becoming more and more pervasive and
powerful, paving the ground to the evolution of Web applications, that
are not just the easiest path to zero client install software but are
becoming the founding elements of an emerging class of ubiquitous
software systems, fostering the evolution of new cooperation paradigms
among people. Novel approaches and techniques, new tools and frameworks
are needed to address the increasing complexity of these applications.

This track aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from
industry and academia working on practical and foundational aspects
related to Web technologies and other technologies that in the Web
framework have found new and unexpected application fields. We seek
original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on (but not
necessarily limited to) the following aspects related to Web

   * Web engineering
   * Markup Languages and XML-related technologies
   * Cooperation on the Web: Social Software and Web 2.0
   * Expanding the reach of Social Software: Enterprise 2.0,
     Social Software and Business Process Management, ...
   * (Process-aware) Web Information Systems
   * Semantic-enhanced Web applications
   * Web searching
   * Web Metrics, Monitoring and Analysis
   * Performance, scalability and quality of service on the Web
   * Web browser extensions
   * Emerging Web technologies

Proceedings and Post-Proceedings

Papers accepted for the Web Technologies track will be published by ACM
both in the SAC 2010 proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version
of their work to an international journal (we have a pending agreement
for a special issue of Springer's World Wide Web).

Paper Submission

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be
considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original
and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing
applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government,
education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer
to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and
undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. The accepted
papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC 2010
Submit your paper electronically in either PDF or postscript format via
the eCMS web site  at http://sac.cs.iupui.edu/SAC2010/
Submissions must adhere to the template available at:
Please note: neither hardcopy nor fax submissions will be accepted.
Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper
formats such as letter and DIN A4. Please use a Postscript previewer
such as Ghostview to check the portability of Postscript documents.
The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the
paper, and self reference should be in the third person. This is to
facilitate blind review. Only the title should be shown at the first
page without the author's information.
The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using
the ACM format (guidelines will be given on the SAC website). Accepted
full papers should not exceed 5 pages in a double column format (with
the option, at additional expense of USD 80 per page, to add three more
pages). Accepted poster papers will be published as extended 2-page
abstracts in the symposium proceedings.

Relevant Dates

Sept. 8, 2009: Paper submission (strict deadline!)
Oct. 19, 2009: Author notification
Nov. 2, 2009: Camera-Ready Copy
