                            CALL FOR PAPERS

             27th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

                       Track on Web Technologies

            25-29 March 2012, Riva del Garda (Trento), Italy



Aims and rationale

The World Wide Web is changing. The advent of HTML 5, the increasing
importance of AJAX and client-side scripting, the new frontiers of
Semantic Web, the explosion of Web-based Social Networks as well as the
advent of the Federated Social Web are only some examples of this
general trend.

Web applications are progressively evolving into rich and flexible
environments where users can easily access documents, publish content,
listen to music, watch videos, draw pictures and even play directly via
browser. This new class of ubiquitous software systems is gaining
momentum and fosters the evolution of new ways for people to interact
and cooperate. Novel approaches and techniques, new tools and
frameworks are needed to address the increasing complexity of these

The Web Technologies track of ACM SAC aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners from industry and academia working on
practical and foundational aspects of Web technologies as well as 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 We seek original, unpublished contributions that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 of Web technologies:

- Collaboration on the Web: Wikis, Social Software, and Web 2.0
- Electronic Publishing on the Web
- Emerging Web Technologies
- Expanding the reach of Social Software: Enterprise 2.0, Social
  Software, Business Process Management, ...
- Hypertext, hypermedia, markup languages, and XML-related technologies
- Performance, Scalability and Quality of Service on the Web
- Web Metrics, Monitoring and Analysis
- (Process-aware) Web Information Systems
- Rich User Experiences and Human Computer Interaction in Web
- Semantic-enhanced Web applications
- Web Browsers and Web Interfaces
- Web Accessibility
- Mobile Web and Cross-device Content Delivery
- Web Searching

Proceedings and Post-Proceedings

Papers accepted for the Web Technologies track will be published by ACM
both in the SAC 2012 proceedings and in the ACM Digital
Library. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their work of an international journal.

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;
3. reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.

Each submitted paper will undergo a blind review process and will be
refereed by at least three referees.  Accepted papers in all categories
will be published in the ACM SAC 2012 proceedings.

The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using
the ACM format (guidelines are given on the SAC 2012 web site).
Accepted full papers should not exceed 6 pages in a double column
format (with the option, at additional expense of USD 80 per page, to
add 2 more pages).

The submission system is not open yet.
