For the past twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, and is hosted this year by Seoul National University in Seoul and Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do, Korea.
The increasing popularity and advances in Web technologies (XML, Web services, semantic Web, etc.) are enabling the development of new classes of applications and new trends in the design of Information systems. This track focuses on emerging Web technologies, architectures, and methodologies for building and managing advanced Web information systems. The Internet and the related technologies have created an interconnected world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, communities of users with similar interests can be formed to achieve efficiency and improve performance, while security threats are present more than ever before.
The goal of this track is to bring together researchers from academia and industry who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of Web Technologies. It will present an opportunity for researchers to get together and share recent developments and techniques in order to identify the critical problems and the most promising research avenues. This track addresses the challenging Web technologies issues focusing on exploring novel methods, techniques, and trends to build up and manage information systems. We solicit original research and industrial papers in the area of web-based information technologies with a special interest in the following topics:
