LA-WEB 2006 Fourth Latin American Web Congress
October 25-27, 2006
Universidad de las Américas-Puebla Cholula, México

LA-Web 2006 is the fourth of a series of refereed 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. Previous editions of LA-Web have taken place in Santiago, Chile (2003), São Paulo, Brazil (2004), and Buenos Aires, Argentina (2005). LA-Web 2006 will be held at the beautiful campus of the Universidad de las Americas-Puebla, in Central Mexico.

Posters are a great means for researchers and students to share their work in an interactive forum by displaying the context and preliminary results of their work in a visual manner. Posters also promote direct contact among conference participants who share research interests. Posters make research work visible during the entire conference. Additionally, specific times for poster discussion will be scheduled as part of the conference program.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Browsers and user interfaces
  • E-commerce, E-Science, E-government and E-Learning
  • Digital libraries
  • Multimedia and hypermedia
  • Mobility and ubiquitous web access
  • Performance, reliability and scalability

  • Semantic web
  • Web engineering
  • Collaboration and web communities
  • Security, privacy and copyright issues
  • XML and web services
  • Collaborative tagging
  • Blogging
  • Web visualization

Poster submissions should provide a concise description of the work to be presented, reporting original work in English. Authors must follow the IEEE Conference Publications Manuscript Formatting Guidelines (see formatting instructions) and should not exceed two pages. One-page submissions are encouraged.

A digital version of all accepted poster submissions will be provided to all conference participants. Additionally, presenters are advised to provide printed leaflets or brochures that conference participants may use for reference during or after the poster sessions. Visually attractive presentations are expected (consider a 80 cm x 120 cm area).
