                            CALL FOR PAPERS

             28th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

                       Track on Web Technologies

            	18-22 March 2013, Coimbra, Portugal



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 We seek original, unpublished contributions that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 2013 proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.

Paper registration for the conference is required and allows the paper
to be printed in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy
attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper
to be included in the ACM/IEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers
will result in excluding the papers from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their work to an international journal.

Student Research Competition (SRC) Program

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts
(minimum of 2-page and maximum of 4-page) following the instructions
published at SAC 2013 website.
Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. All
research abstract submissions will be reviewed by expert reviewers
and practitioners.

Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster
presentations of their work and compete for three top-winning places.
The SRC committee will evaluate and select First-, Second-, and Third-
place winners. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP
recognition certificates during the conference banquet.

Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP
Student Travel Award program for support.

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 2013 proceedings.

The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using
the ACM format (guidelines are given on the SAC 2013 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).

Papers can be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/c/sac2013/.
