may invite panel participation from submitters of papers accepted or
not. Of particular interest are papers articulating technical innovation
on the foregoing topics. As a guideline, a nominal length for papers is 10 pages single-spaced.
All accepted papers will be published in the
conference proceedings. In addition, special issues of journals
containing outstanding papers from the conference are planned.
Papers intended for publication on the Conference Server and in the
Paper-Proceedings shall be submitted by ftp in the following format:
- syntactically correct HTML 2.0 (for conference server and for
creation of printed proceedings).
To make the Proceedings more attractive, it is important that
submitted papers follow the Guidelines as closely as possible. The
Editors cannot retype contributions for publication. However, minor
deviations from the guidelines may be accepted from authors who lack
the necessary resources.
- Only full paper submissions will be accepted.
- A cover sheet should accompany every submission. It shall
- Type of Presentation: Technical Paper or State-of-the-Art
- Assignment to conference topics (select topics only out of

an additional keyword.
- The title of the Technical Paper / State of the Art Report
- Name and postal address, phone, fax, email address of the
author(s). In case of co-authors the first listed will be used as the
contact address for future communication. (Note: The order of the
authors may be different in the paper.)
- List of keywords (as on title page)
- Name of tar (.Z) or gzip (.gz) file
The cover sheet is required for the reviewing process only. It should
be HTML only, no formatting other than numbering and paragraphs. This
page will not be published.
A State of the Art Report is a survey of an aspect of web technology, usually presented by a recognized person or team working in that technology.
