The conference proceedings, including all accepted papers, will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages in LNCS format, including references. All submissions must be in PDF format. Authors should avoid the use of non-English fonts to avoid problems with printing and viewing the submissions. All accepted papers MUST follow strictly the instructions for LNCS Authors. Springer LNCS site offers style files and information: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.
Submissions for APWeb must be original (not previously published and not under review in other forums). This applies to papers on all tracks of the conference. Authors are advised to interpret these limitations strictly and to contact the PC chairs in case of doubt. Each accepted paper must be accompanied by at least one full registration.
Please note APWeb program has significant changes in 2016:
For the first time in APWeb conferences, we will adopt an oral-poster program model. All the accepted full papers will be classified into either oral paper or poster paper based on reviewers’ recommendations, where oral papers are selected at a more competitive rate. Oral paper authors will be given opportunity to present their work to all audience in the conference plenary session (NOT parallel session). All accepted paper authors can disseminate their research more interactively in poster sessions. Both oral and poster papers are full research papers with the same length in the conference proceedings.
Best paper awards (including best paper award and best student paper award) will be presented during conference. All the best papers and a few selected oral papers will be recommended to the following journals with reasonable extensions:
APWeb is a leading international conference on research, development and applications of Web technologies, database systems, information management and software engineering, with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region. The APWeb 2016 Demo program aims to bring together researchers, developers, and database users from the data management and Web communities. It offers an exciting and highly interactive way of demonstrating your databases, systems, services, middleware, and Web research and is an excellent way of advertising the applicability of your results. Proposals for demonstrations of products or prototypes based on innovative research results are solicited.
It is mandatory that all demo proposals describe clearly what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. Optionally, proposals can include a URL that shows a preliminary version of the demo (e.g., screen shots or, even better, an interactive program). A BEST DEMO AWARD will also be given out to the best demo(s) presented in the demo session during the conference.
All submitted demo proposals must be formatted according to the instructions for submission format for research submissions and must be no longer than four (4) pages in the Springer LNCS format. This page limit includes all parts of the paper: title, authors and affiliation, abstract, body, and bibliography. Demos will be selected based on (i) the novelty of the demo system, (ii) the novelty and the technical quality of the underlying research, and (iii) the demonstration scenario and applications of the presented system or technology. All submissions must go through Microsoft cmt system via the following link:
Please note that for every accepted demo, it is required that at least one person registers for the conference and presents the demo. All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings published as Springer's LNCS series.
