WWW2010 Call For Papers

septembre, 14, 2009

imagesHere is a brute force copy of a part of the call for papers for WWW2010, probably the most famous conference in the field. The complete call for papers is here.

WWW2010, the premier international conference on Web research, calls for outstanding submissions along the following tracks:

  • Original and creative research papers, theoretical and/or practical
  • “Application and experience” papers involving novel, large, deployed systems
  • Tutorial proposals on any topic of interest to the community
  • Workshop proposals on any topic that is strongly related to WWW, but too nascent to cover thoroughly in the main conference
  • Demonstrations of potentially high-impact, innovative systems

All papers and proposals must be submitted electronically. Please check this site for updated information on the paper submission procedure.

Areas and Topics of Interest

This year, papers will not be partitioned into tracks at the time of submission. The program committee is not partitioned into tracks either. Instead, we have areas, and, within areas, more specific topics. Papers will be assigned to reviewers based on topics indicated by the authors at submission time. Authors may select topics from multiple areas as well as topics that cross area boundaries. A submission may belong to one or perhaps a few of the following areas and associated topics (see the list of topics for a more detailed description):


  • Web indexing, searching, query processing, scoring, ranking, query log analysis.

Data Mining and Machine Learning

  • Deriving actionable insight from Web information sources: query logs, Web graph, social networks, click trails, text documents, etc.

Bridging Structured and Unstructured Data

  • Information extraction and integration, and next-generation searching and querying techniques that exploits these.

Social Networks

  • Models, algorithms, systems and issues around social networks and collaborative environments.

Semantic Web

  • Metadata representation and standards, ontologies, reasoning and logic, agents.

Security and Privacy

  • Theory and practice of data and system security, privacy, anonymization and cloaking, information contract codification, protocols.

Internet Monetization

  • Markets, auctions, games, pricing, advertising, and other Web-specific economic activities.

Software Architecture and Infrastructure

  • Processes, principles, methods, models, and architectures supporting the design and development of Web applications.

Performance, Scalability and Availability

  • System engineering issues for traditional and emerging Web applications.

Networking and Mobility

  • Communication protocols, robustness, security, mobile applications, content distribution.

Users Interfaces and Rich Interaction

  • Designing, streamlining and evaluating the interaction boundaries between users and the system, studies in cognitive load and its mitigation, multiparty interaction.

Rich Media

  • Web-scale management of rich media such as video, images, audio, and music; interactive media and collaboration.

Web Services and Service-Oriented Computing

  • Models, methodologies and tools for analyzing, designing,  composing, publishing and discovering Web services.
