Although the Web was initially conceived as a vehicle for distributing
documents, it has gradually evolved into a platform for delivering
interactive applications. Web-based applications are revolutionizing
both the features that can be delivered and the technologies for
developing and deploying applications. In the future, more and more
of the world's interesting applications will be delivered via the Web,
displacing the traditional model of installable binaries.
Web applications involve a diverse collection of issues and
technologies, and until now there have been few opportunities for
interaction and synergy across these areas. The USENIX Conference
on Web Application Development (WebApps '10) is a new technical
conference designed to bring together experts in all aspects of
developing and deploying Web applications.
For WebApps '10 we invite paper submissions on topics related to Web application development, including but not limited to:
- Computing substrates and deployment technologies ("cloud computing")
- Frameworks for developing Web applications
- Client-side toolkits, libraries, and plug-ins
- Storage systems
- Security issues for Web applications
- Management techniques for large-scale Web applications
- Languages for Web applications
- Scalability issues and techniques
- Techniques for creating highly interactive Web applications
- Software as a service
- Applications that illustrate interesting new features or implementation techniques
- Performance measurements of Web applications
- Real-time data delivery over the Web
- Web services
WebApps '10 will consist of a single track of refereed papers. Authors
are encouraged to submit technical papers describing original and
innovative ideas that advance the state of the art in Web applications.
Papers with practical significance will be given priority over purely
theoretical results. Submitted papers must be no longer than 12 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Papers
should be formatted in two columns, using 10 point type on 12 point
(single-spaced) leading, in a text block of 6.5" by 9".
The first page of the paper
should include the paper title and author name(s); reviewing is
single-blind. Papers that do not conform to these requirements
will not be reviewed. In a good paper, the authors will have:
For more details on the submission process, and for templates to use with LaTeX, Word, etc., authors should consult the detailed submission requirements.
Submit papers using the Web submission form.
- Addressed a significant problem
- Devised an interesting and practical solution
- Clearly described what they have and have not implemented
- Demonstrated the benefits of their solution
- Articulated the advances beyond previous work
- Drawn appropriate conclusions
WebApps is single-blind, meaning that authors should include
their names on their paper submissions and do not need to obscure
references to their existing work.
All papers will be available online to registered attendees before the conference. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify email@example.com. The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the first day of the conference, June 23, 2010.
Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may, on the recommendation of a program chair, take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Questions? Contact your program chair, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the USENIX office, email@example.com.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX WebApps '10 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
Note regarding registration: One author per accepted paper will receive a registration discount. USENIX will offer a complimentary registration upon request.
