We invite you to submit papers to the BROWSERS & USER INTERFACES track
of the 14th International World Wide Web Conference, to be held on May
10-14, 2005, in Chiba, Japan.

Submissions should present original reports of substantive new work.
We encourage the submission of your best work, as WWW is quite competitive
(acceptance rates are comparable to CHI).  Accepted papers will appear in
the conference proceedings published by ACM Press.

The paper submission deadline is November 8 and the submission site is
currently open.

The latest conference information (including the detailed submission
guidelines) is available at

  For many, the Web browser is a stable part of everyday life.  As
  existing applications become Web-enabled and new applications emerge,
  Web browsers and user interfaces must address new requirements and
  challenges.  Systems that facilitate interpersonal contact -
  communities, social networking sites, Web logs - are increasingly
  mainstream.  The wide availability of large displays have created new
  opportunities for group interaction through the Web, ranging from
  shared browsing sessions in meeting rooms to ambient information
  sharing between distant locations.  The spread of pervasive and
  ubiquitous computing has resulted in new types of interactions, such
  as those with embedded devices and location-aware services.  Is
  radical change needed in Web user interfaces?  Or can familiar
  paradigms evolve to support the many new devices, applications and
  types of use?

  The Browsers and User Interfaces area of WWW2005 focuses on promoting
  novel research directions and providing a forum where researchers,
  theoreticians, and practitioners can share their knowledge and
  opinions about problems and solutions related to accessing and
  interacting with data , services, and other humans over the Web. We
  invite original papers describing both theoretical and experimental
  research including (but not limited to) the following topics:

  * Automated methods Web page usability testing
  * Browsers on mobile devices
  * Information visualization on the Web
  * Interfaces for social applications
  * Methods and systems for evaluating usability and user experience
  * Multi-modal interfaces and applications
  * New approaches for improving usability and user experience
  * Novel browsing paradigms
  * Research advances in browser interoperability
  * Tools and techniques for Web personalization
  * Voice interfaces
  * Web accessibility
  * Web applications and ambient/peripheral displays
  * Web-based collaboration and collaborative Web use

  Paper submission deadline: November 8, 2004
  Author notification (papers): January 28, 2005
  Final papers due: February 28, 2005
