          *Workshop IntraWebs 2006 - Call for papers*
                  a workshop at WWW 2006 see:
         Paper submission deadline: 10th of February 2006


We call intraweb, a web comprising all HTTP nodes on an intranet.
Most large companies have intrawebs as part of their internal
information systems, enabling them to share confidential resources
with their employees e.g. organisational structure, corporate
templates, HR resources, forms, directory, agendas, news, policies,
project descriptions, expert directory,  partnerships with external
companies, law information, etc. Intrawebs offer a safe place to
publish interfaces to corporate 'legacy' data, information systems
and shared applications. In many organisations intrawebs became a
privileged means for knowledge management. The Web technologies are
used internally for servers distributing information, browsers are
used to access it and in addition to an economy of scale in terms
of building, deployment and maintenance costs, one can also recognize
an economy of scale in terms cognitive workload: reusing the same
technologies and tools as the World Wide Web to build an
organization-wide web of internal documents makes it familiar and
easier both for developers and users and from the users' stand point
the open web and the intraweb seamlessly integrate in their navigators.

Many evolutions of the world-wide web have been adopted and used in
internal webs. Even latest web tools meet application scenarios on
corporate webs: wikis are used to edit and maintain corporate documents,
blogs are used for news and technological watch, etc. Being on a private
network of the company, intrawebs can include a whole family of
applications that could not be made available on the public web for
confidentiality reasons. Within a company the existence of communities
and their shared professional interests makes the intraweb a selected
place to develop and experiment new web-based solutions. The microcosm
of intrawebs has also been used as labs and seeds for new web
applications that then spread on the open web.

The goal of this workshop is to bring designers, researchers and
practitioners together and exchange ideas and experiences concerning

intranets, internal web sites and web applications, corporate webs,
corporate portals, online corporate memories, corporate web services,
corporate semantic webs

*Possible subjects include*
- Design tools and methodologies for internal portals and web sites;
- Usage and usefulness analysis of corporate webs;
- Security, privacy, profile-based access to intrawebs resources;
- Corporate search engines, directories and novel navigation means;
- Web-based management of corporate workflows and knowledge;
- Internal web log and feedback analysis to improve accessibility
   and usability;
- Web-based corporate memories, libraries and archives;
- Corporate Web applications to foster collaboration
   (expert matching, acquaintance networks, communities of practices,
    communities of interest, etc.);
- Web-based enterprise application integration;
- Corporate wikis, corporate blogs, corporate web services, corporate
   semantic webs, etc.;
- Connection of internal webs and external web.

*Motivations and objectives*
Historically there has always been a synergy between world-wide web
evolutions and intra-webs experiments. Many evolutions of the
world-wide web have been adopted and used in internal webs and,
vice-versa, many local initiatives on intrawebs turned out to be
seeds of new web applications. Nowadays corporate webs are a de
facto central piece of corporate information systems. However many
options exist (architectures, technologies, policies, etc.) and we
should foster the exchange of experiences.

This workshops aims at providing a survey of the current trends on
intrawebs, foster exchanges of returns on experience, discuss options
available when building intrawebs, evaluation criteria and priorities
(open vs. secure, content and indexing, etc.). Ideally, it would be
the meeting point of a community of practice.

This workshop is open: any person interested should have the
opportunity to participate. We will rely on reviews by peers chosen
from an international program committee; we intend to get three reviews
per paper.

Submissions should be sent to mailto:[log in to unmask]
