SOS: Stay On Saturday!

The organizers of Developer's Day would like to encourage you to "stick around" for the Saturday after the Web Conference to join in some very exciting hot-off-the-presses sessions for developers, by developers. In addition, we are proud to announce that we have scheduled two plenary speakers: Doug Cutting, the leader of the Nutch open-source search engine project, and an interactive luncheon Q&A with Tim Berners-Lee.

The main focus of the day will be four parallel tracks split along several key themes to bring developer and specialist communities together:
  • Semantic Web, a full day chaired by Eric Miller
  • Trust and Reputation Management, chaired by Jennifer Golbeck
  • Photography Markup, chaired by Greg Elin
  • RuleML & DAML-Rules, co-chaired by Benjamin Grosof
  • XForms, chaired by Steven Pemberton
  • And new for this year, "Cool Stuff," a selection of application development techniques, usability assessments, search technology, and other experience reports culled by the DevDay co-chairs, Jim Hendler and Rohit Khare
Stay tuned for more detailed schedules and talk titles in your conference bags when you get to New York - and book that extra hotel night to make the most of the bonus day in your WWW2004 Passport registration, Developer's Day!

PS. Rolling acceptances have already been issued to dozens of talks. If you have an idea for "Cool Stuff" send it in to devday@www2004.org pronto!

Call for participation

Developer/Specialists Day

The Developers and Specialists Day Committee requests proposals for individual presentations or, preferably, multi-talk tracks, for presentation at the World Wide Web Conference on Saturday, May 22, 2004.
It is expected that 5-6 parallel sessions will be offered, with presentations in each focusing on tools and techniques of application to the World Wide Web.  Preferred presentations will be of interest to a widerange of participants working on Web-related development.

Potential topics and tracks may be for a particular area of Web development-- Web Services, Semantic Web, XML tools, etc. -- or for cross-cutting topics that may be of interest to those in multiple areas -- photo and multimedia access, new browser technologies, new developments in search tools, etc.

The Developer's Day track has historically focused on late-breaking,practical, and commercial innovations to a greater degree than the mainconference. Industrial experience reports are particularly encouraged.

Submissions should be in the form of an abstract of no more than 500 words for an individual presentation.   For multiple-presentations or tracks,please be sure to indicate the approximate length and how many presentations, and include up to a 1/2 page on each presentation to occur.

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis with a final deadline of April 30.
