Call for Participation
Developers' Day
World Wide Web Conference 2005
Feb 28, 2005

Developer's Day at WWW2005 promises to be the most exciting yet.  We
have arranged a keynote talk by Makoto Murata and two special all day
sessions for those interested in dynamic Web Design.   However, to make
the day even more exciting, we are soliciting ideas for topics and
presentations.   In particular, we are requesting proposals for
individual presentations or, preferably, multi-talk tracks.  It is
expected that four or five parallel sessions will be offered, with
presentations in each focusing on tools and techniques for the World
Wide Web.  Preferred tracks and presentations will be of interest to a
wide range of participants working on Web-related development.

Potential topics and tracks may be for a particular area of Web
development -- Web Services, Semantic Web, RDF or XML tools, etc. -- or
for cross-cutting topics that may be of interest to those in multiple
areas -- forms, compound document and multimedia integration, so-called
"rich web apps" making innovative use of Javascript, new developments in
search tools, best and/or advanced practices in Web application
development, etc.

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 planned

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis with a final deadline of
March 25 2005.

Submissions should be sent to chair_dev@www2005.org

Paces at dawn?

Tim Converse; “And so, with a certain kind of person, the dismissal happens before the possibility of thinking arrives.”

“An open platform for developing, deploying, and accessing planetary-scale services”. Gee, how many of these does one planet need? 8-)
