Call For Papers
The International World Wide Web Conferences Steering Committee (IW3C2) and the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India cordially invite you to participate in the 20th International World Wide Web Conference to be held in Hyderabad, India.
The World Wide Web Conference is the global event that brings together key researchers, innovators, decision-makers, technologists, businesses, and standards bodies working to shape the Web. Organized by IW3C2 since 1994, the conference series is the premier venue for academics and industry to present, demonstrate, and discuss the latest ideas about the Web, its infrastructure, relevant algorithms and new innovative applications. It is most of all an annual opportunity for the international community to discuss and debate the state and the evolution of the Web.
The technical program for the five-day conference will include refereed paper presentations, plenary sessions, panels, poster, and demo sessions. The WWW2011 program will also include Panels, Tutorials, and Workshops, a W3C track, a Developers track, a PhD Symposium, and Exhibitions.

The topics in the tracks are near-disjoint. It is in your best interest to choose the track with a topic closest to the topic of the submission. A submission can be moved to a different track at any point at the discretion of the program chairs.
Formatting guidelines. Paper submissions should adhere to all Conference Policies. Submissions must
■ be written in English;
■ use the ACM SIG Proceedings templates;
■ be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform);

It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the required format.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference online proceedings published by the ACM Digital Library and the conference's web site. Authors of accepted papers will retain proprietary rights to their work, but will be required to sign a copyright release form to IW3C2.
