           Last Call for Papers -- Deadline extension until 29th February, 2012

   1st International Workshop on Declarative 3D for the Web Architecture (Dec3D2012)

  in conjunction with WWW2012, 21st International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2012)
                           16-20 April 2012, Lyon, France

Dear Colleagues,

you are invited to submit your papers to the 1st International Workshop on Declarative 3D 
for the Web Architecture, co-located with the WWW2012 conference. The workshop aims to 
encourage researchers and practitioners from both the Web and 3D graphics communities to 
meet and talk about an integration of interactive 3D graphics capabilities into the Web 
technology stack in a declarative way. 

=== Topics ===

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Declarative 3D Use-Cases and Requirements: Discussion of the use cases, where embedding 3D 
data in HTML using declarative approach provides significant benefit; deduction of the 
requirements for the D3D specification.
* Declarative 3D and DOM: Discussion of integration of 3D with existing and future W3C 
standards, specifically: integration of high-level scene concepts; integration with client 
and server side rendering services, 3D REST; integration with existing security aspects for 
content delivery and visualization; content portability and platform independence.
* Declarative 3D in current web browsers: Exploring how the incorporation of declarative 3D 
graphics can be done in currently popular web browsers (e.g., by using WebGL in WebKit or 
Gecko); what are the possible difficulties?
* Semantics of 3D objects in DOM: Discussion of how descriptive 3D can be combined with 
semantics. This includes topics such as querying and manipulation of graphical objects, 
mash-up from several sources, integration of RDF technology, creation of useful APIs based 
on web services etc
* Declarative 3D User Interface Issues: Novel interfaces and interaction methods for online 
3D + HTML content; mobile 3D Web interfaces, interaction techniques; accessibility and 
usability of 3D Web content.

=== Submissions ===

We seek three kinds of submissions:

* Full technical papers - should not exceed eight pages in length in ACM format;
* Short technical papers and position papers - up to four pages in ACM format;
* Demo descriptions – two-page description of the application in ACM format, ideally 
accompanied with a link to a demo;

Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates. Please note that the 
author list does not need to be anonymized, as we do not follow a double-blind review 

Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. Accepted papers 
will be presented at the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings (published online 
at CEUR-WS).

Please submit papers via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dec3d2012
