27th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing Track on Web Technologies
Track on Web Technologies, 25-29 March 2012, Riva del Garda (Trento), Italy
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 applications.
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 We seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following aspects of Web technologies: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
