Browsers and User Interfaces

Here is a one-page printable PDF version of the CFP for this track.

The Web browser has become the face of cyberspace. As new uses of the Internet are invented and network bandwidth goes up, web user interfaces will need to become richer and more interactive. At the same time, the Web is moving off the desktop and into mobile phones, embedded devices, location-aware services, and large shared displays. Delivering a good experience across a variety of platforms and form factors remains a major challenge. Web users are also discovering new ways to communicate and interact (e.g., communities of trust, social networks, blogs), which present more design challenges and research opportunities. Will familiar paradigms be able to evolve to accommodate new devices, high bandwidth interaction, and new use cases, or is radical change needed in web interface design?

The Browsers and User Interfaces track at WWW2007 will provide a forum where both researchers and practitioners can share new approaches, applications, and experimental results about web user interfaces. We invite original papers describing theoretical or experimental research including (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Browsers and user experience on mobile devices
  • Browser interoperability
  • Novel client-side applications
  • Multimodal web interfaces (e.g. speech and gestures)
  • Information visualization on the Web
  • Multilingual web content design
  • Novel browsing and navigation paradigms
  • Web interaction with the real world (e.g. robotics and sensor networks)
  • Adaptative web interfaces and personalization
  • Ubiquitous web access, shared displays, and wearable computing
  • Web usability and user experience
  • Web accessibility
  • Web-based collaboration and collaborative web use
  • Blogging and social networks

Paper formatting requirements are provided on the submissions page.
