Message from the Poster Track Chair

Welcome to WWW10 in Hong Kong! I would like to take this opportunity to give a brief update on the Posters Program.

Although the posters are limited in the presentation length, they provide an ideal opportunity for conference attendees to learn about new and innovative work-in-progress, and to preview on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting.

This year we had 130 total poster submissions. 36 posters were recommended from the Refereed Paper Track by the Program Committee. Based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity, the Posters Committee selected 63 additional posters. For organizational and readability purpose, these final posters are divided into the following five categories: (1) Applications and User Interface, (2) Browsers and Tools, (3) Content and Education, (4) E-Commerce, Security, and Scalability, and (5) Searching, Querying, and Indexing.

As the success of the Posters Program is dependent on the dedication of the reviewers, I would like to express my gratitude to the members of the Posters Committee for their expert and responsible reviews which helped to guide the final poster selection process. In addition, I would like to thank Mr. Edward Cheng for his administrative support of the Poster Track throughout the review and publication process.

A quick reminder. There will be two Poster Prizes, the Best Poster and the Best Student Poster, to be awarded at the WWW10. I invite you to take part in the selection process of these two poster awards by attending the Welcome/Poster Reception on May 2. Take your time to visit these posters and interact with the presenters before you vote. Moreover, I invite you to participate in the Closing Ceremony on May 4, where the winners will be announced and the prizes awarded.

It is my sincere hope that you will not only enjoy the technical activities: tutorials, workshops, keynotes, paper sessions, poster sessions, and speeches at WWW10, but will also experience the dynamic and exciting metropolis of the Fragrant Harbour--Hong Kong.
