On behalf of the Program Committee, I would like to invite you to submit
your work to the 3rd USENIX Conference on Web Application Development
(WebApps '12).

Like the inaugural WebApps '10 and '11, WebApps '12 seeks to attract
cutting-edge research that advances the state of the art, not only of
novel Web applications but also of infrastructure,frameworks, tools, and techniques
that support the development, analysis/testing, operation, or deployment
of those applications.

Possible topics include but are not limited to: 

* Storage for Web-scale applications 
* Techniques for testing and debugging 
* Novel strategies for fault tolerance or high availability in Web apps 
* The Web as an emerging platform in new application areas 
* Making Web apps social and integrating with social utilities, e.g.,
Facebook, Twitter, Google+
* HCI techniques related specifically to Web apps 
* Measurement, modeling, workload generation, and other tools to aid
experimental research on Web apps 
* New and unusual app features or implementation techniques 
* Media delivery applications and infrastructure 
* Client-side libraries, frameworks, toolkits, plug-ins 
* Server-side frameworks 
* Languages and language engineering advances relevant to Web app
* Deployment substrates and technologies (cloud computing, infrastructure
as a service, testing as a service, etc.)

WebApps '12 will consist of a single track of refereed papers and, new
this year, a set of short paper demos. Papers with practical
significance and/or working prototypes will be preferred over purely
theoretical results. Short paper demo submissions must have a working
prototype. Submitted papers must be no longer than 12 pages for regular
papers and 6 pages for demo papers, including figures, tables, and
