8th Latin American Web Congress (LA-WEB 2012)
Cartagena, Colombia, Oct 25th - 27th, 2012

Papers deadline: May 19, 2012

LA-Web 2012 is the eight of a series of refereed international conferences
aimed at providing a venue in Latin America for researchers and
technologists from around the world to present, demonstrate and discuss the
latest Web developments. LA-WEB 2012 is endorsed by the IW3C2 International
World Wide Web Conference Committee and its proceedings will be published
by the IEEE.

This year, the first day of LA-WEB will hold joint-sessions with SPIRE
2012. We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in all areas of web
research including, but not limited to the following areas:

- Web data mining, search, and analytics
- Multimedia, and digital libraries
- Social media, collaboration, and web communities
- Visualization, interaction, and user interfaces
- Web engineering, performance, reliability and scalability
- Usability, accessibility, and emerging regions
- Security, privacy, and rights management
- Semantic web, XML, and cloud services
- Spam characterization, detection and filtering
- E-commerce, E-Science, and E-government
- E-Learning and rural computing

Papers should describe original, unpublished, high quality research,
properly placing the work in the context of the state of the art, and
clearly indicating the work's innovative aspects and contributions to the
field. Authors may submit full papers (up to 8 pages), or short papers (up
to 4 pages). LA-WEB offers a great venue to show exciting new work that is
mature (full papers) and work that is at an early stage and can benefit
from discussion with colleagues (short papers). All submissions will be
evaluated on the basis if originality, quality, and technical contribution.

All accepted papers will by published by the IEEE and be included in the
Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers must register for and attend
the conference. Submissions specifically focused on developing regions are
highly encouraged.

LA-Web 2012 will take place Cartagena, Colombia. Cartagena is considered
the most important tourist destination in Colombia. In 1984, Cartagena's
colonial walled city and fortress were designated a UNESCO World Heritage
Site. The city encapsulates all of the charm of Spanish colonial
architecture of the republic period, and today its main attractions include
intense nightlife, cultural festivals, exotic scenery, superb beaches,
delicious food, a wide offer of hotels and an excellent tourist
infrastructure. Cartagena is well connected with daily flights from
different national and international destinations.

October 25th will be held as a joint session on Web retrieval with the 19th
Symposium on String
Processing and Information Retrieval (SPIRE 2012).
