                  The Future of Web Applications

June 3, 1999

National Institute of Standards and Technology

_____________________________________________________________

The fifth in a series of Human Factors and the Web
conferences will be held on Thursday, June 3, 1999 at the
National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg,
Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC.

The purpose of these conferences is to provide a forum for
sharing information among a community of human factors
engineers, designers, and developers who are interested in
producing web sites that are more useful and usable.
The first four conferences were sponsored by Sandia National
Laboratories (March 1996), Microsoft Corporation (October 1996),
US West Communications (June 1997), and AT&T Labs (June 1998).
This year's conference will be hosted by NIST and sponsored, in
part, by AT&T Labs.  We are still seeking additional sponsors.

INVITATION FOR SUBMISSIONS

These conferences focus on web design and usability.
Presentations can take a variety of approaches, including
reports on empirical work, discussions of design and
evaluation methods, or reflections on what we have learned
about designing for the web.

The featured topic for this conference is "The Future of Web
Applications".  In addition to papers on general web design and
web usability, we especially encourage presentations focusing
on topics such as:

  - Usability studies of dynamic, customizable web sites
  - Innovative applications, especially for electronic commerce and
    enterprise-wide operations
  - Case studies of legacy systems re-engineered for the web,
    database-enabled sites and transaction-based applications
  - Usable design with new Web technologies such as XML and Java
  - Tools for web usability testing and  evaluation
  - Accessibility

Submissions can be either for half-hour oral presentations
or for panel discussions.  Submissions for presentations
should be papers between 2000 and 4000 words in length.
Proposed panels should be described in enough detail to be
reviewed.  All papers and presentations should be in English.

Proceedings will be published on CD and on the
conference web site. Publication versions of accepted
papers, and presentation materials, will need to be e-mailed
four weeks before the conference.

To make a submission:

1) Complete the cover sheet included at the end of this message.

2) Send cover sheet and submission via email as plain text or as

rejection by April 5, 1999.  (In a separate email we will be
requesting volunteers for the review committee.)

Review of submissions will be based on the originality of the
