AWC 2013 invites papers presenting original contributions in all fields of Web related research and applications. All submissions should be in English. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the work. Paper submission will be electronic through Easychair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=awc2013).
Papers should contain original, unpublished work that is not being considered concurrently for publication elsewhere. Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length conforming to the formatting instructions for the Australian Computer Society (ACS) - Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology (CRPIT) Australian Computer Science Communications series. The preferred format for submissions is Portable Document Format (PDF). Microsoft Word and Latex style files are available at the CRPIT web site.
By submitting to the conference authors accept that they are aware of the Guidelines on Research Practice in Computer Science by the Computer Research and Education Association (CORE) and the policy listed on the CRPIT web site (http://crpit.com/). In particular, authors are encouraged to review the points on authorship.
