Refereed Papers Track

  • Browser and User Interfaces
  • At its inception the Web was designed to transmit simple, mostly static pages to browsers that were free to interpret HTML formatting tags as they saw fit. Since then the Web has been enriched by the work of, for example, designers, artists, tutorial authors, and e-commerce Webmasters. The resulting broad mixture of authors and readers has put increasing pressure on Web infrastructure and content presentation capabilities. In response, new technologies have increasingly shifted content presentation control from browsers to authors. The result is an unprecedented level of experimentation that strives to contribute high-quality, end-to-end, user-level support to the Web: from convenient authoring tools on one end, to sophisticated interactive surfaces for end users on the other. Which of these experiments work? How can we further enrich the Web, and progressively decrease the barriers between ideas and their manifestations on browsers' screens?

    The Browsers and User Interfaces area of WWW2004 focuses on promoting novel research directions and providing a forum where researchers, theoreticians, and practitioners can share their knowledge and opinions about problems and solutions related to accessing and interacting with data, services, and other humans over the Web. This year we do not include a separate Multimedia track, so this Browsers & User Interfaces track is a venue for introducing Web-related multimedia work as well. We invite original papers describing both theoretical and experimental research including (but not limited to) the following topics:

    • Browsers on mobile devices
    • Automatic generation of Web-based user interfaces
    • Browser interoperability
    • Multi-modal interfaces and applications
    • Novel browsing paradigms
    • Support for new Web standards
    • Tools and techniques for Web personalization
    • Usability and experience
    • Web-based collaboration
    • Web accessibility
    • Web page usability testing
    • Web visualization
    • Management and display of multimedia content
