Call for Papers, Presentations and Posters

Undoubtedly, the Web plays an important role in today's modern business processes all over world. It is concurrently deeply penetrating nearly all kinds of industry branches, beginning with the software vendors, but also moving to include industries solely deploying IT technology. The W3C recommendations and standards from other bodies (IETF, OASIS, Open Mobile Alliance (formerly known as WAP forum)) form the basis of a virtual middleware whose implementations are part of the critical IT backbone of many businesses.

The WWW2003 Industrial Track seeks to bring together players from all parts of the life cycle of deploying standards into existing IT infrastructures and business processes, including

  • people knowledgable about current practices, experiments, and pitfalls
  • people informed about how standards are incorporated into products for deployment
  • experts in selecting, evaluating, and deploying available standard based products

We are interested in all contributions on all relevant topics, including:

  • Interoperability obstacles and successes
  • Usage scenarios for and experiences with emerging areas such as the Semantic Web
  • Industrialization of XML technologies (e.g. experiences with XML Schema, XQuery, XLink)
  • Voice browsing and mobile computing
  • Next generation hypertext -- practical usage of technologies such as XHTML, MathML, SVG
  • Living Web Services -- experiences from early adopters
  • The role of reference implementations at work (e.g. Jigsaw, Amaya, XMLTidy)
  • Demands for new standards

We solicit presentations by vendors, industry deployers who are not-vendors, open source developers, academic deployers, and government deployers.
These presentations may discuss web standards deployment issues from a variety of contexts, including:

  • Case studies introducing projects deploying standards
  • Lessons learned from integrating standards-based products into existing business processes
  • Experiences building commercial implementations of standards
  • Standard compliance as a criterion during the software/vendor selection process
  • Relationship between standards, standards bodies, and the open source community
  • Teaching standards
  • Web technology as part of e-government activities
  • Making business of standards specifications


Submission Details

Papers and posters should be submitted same way as for other alternate tracks
(see call for contributions: main conference)

Presentations should be proposed in a short abstract consisting of not more than a 500 words. The abstract should outline the technology or project to be presented and the problems faced during realization. Lessons learned and recommendations for further standardization should be included as appropriate. The selection will be based on relevance.
