International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services

ICIW 2006

February 23-25, 2006 - Guadeloupe, French Caribbean

Call for Papers

The ICIW 2006 (International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services) inaugurates a series of co-located events that covers the complementary aspects related to designing and deploying of applications based on IP&Web techniques and mechanisms. The main conference focuses on several tracks concerning Web technologies, design and development of Web-based applications, and interactions of these applications with other types of systems. Management aspects related to these applications and challenges on specialized domains are aided at too. Evaluation techniques and standard position on different aspects are part of the expected agenda.   

The call for submissions covers both theoretical and experimental topics. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas. Industrial presentations are not subject to these constraints. Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The ICIW will have the following tracks:
