Posters provide a forum for late-breaking research, and facilitate feedback in an informal setting. Posters are peer-reviewed. The poster area provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent web-related research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. It gives conference attendees a way to learn about innovative works in progress in a timely and informal manner. Formatting and submission requirements are available at http://www2003.org/cfp.htm. Inquiries can be sent to email@example.com.
TUTORIALS AND WORKSHOPS
A program of tutorials will cover topics of current interest to web design, development, services, operation, use, and evaluation. These half and full-day sessions will be led by internationally recognized experts and experienced instructors using prepared content.
Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers, designers, leaders, and practitioners to explore current web R&D issues through a more focused and in-depth manner than is possible in a traditional conference session. Participants typically present position statements and hold in-depth discussions with their peers within the workshop setting.
For more information and submission details see http://www2003.org/tut&ws.htm. Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Panels provide an interactive forum that will engage both panelists and the audience in lively discussion of important and often controversial issues. For more information and submission details see http://www2003.org/panels.htm. Inquiries can be sent to email@example.com.
Best Paper, Best Student Paper, Best Alternate Track Paper, Best Alternate Track Student Paper, Best Poster, Best Student Poster, and Best Presentation awards will be presented at the conference.
Developers Day (D-Day) will be devoted to the interests of web developers, and will offer in-depth discussions of technologies and tools at the forefront of the web.
