Tools and Applications Workshop (WFA)

The Tools and Applications Workshop (WFA) has traditionally been promoted as an integrated session to WebMedia. This session is an important forum where members of academia and industry can present their latest tools, prototypes, applications and demonstrations. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the WFA program committee and selected entries will be submitted during WebMedia. With practical purpose, in WFA there is an emphasis on the demonstration of applications and tools, the experience of their development, issues of deployment and use, and the perspectives they create.

You are invited to submit papers on topics of interest to WebMedia / WFA, which are the same as the main conference. Papers describing tools / applications must be submitted electronically through the JEMS system.

This year we are pleased to announce that the Special Committee on Multimedia and Web (CE-WebMedia) has the financial resources to provide cost-help to the authors of the selected papers. Detailed instructions on the conditions of the allowance will be given later, after notification of acceptance of the work.

It is strongly recommended that authors make the site available, or a download link or demo video of their tools / applications up to the evaluation period of the paper.

Papers submitted to the 2018 WebMedia Tools and Applications Workshop session must be original, and can not be submitted simultaneously in other conferences or journals, nor have they been previously published. The final acceptance is conditioned to the registration in WebMedia of at least one of the authors, who must make the presentation of the work.

The paper presenting the tool / application should contain a clear description:

of the application / tool goals;
of its architecture;
of its main functionalities;
the type of license;
of the perspectives created by it (e.g. purely academic use, free software, freeware, shareware).
Papers can have up to 5 pages, including all figures, references and attachments, and must follow the ACM format. Articles can be submitted in English or Portuguese. All articles must be in PDF format.

Approved tools / applications should be demonstrated at a specific point in time for programming. Details will be sent to the authors of the approved papers. Authors of the best tools / applications will receive certificates and / or awards after the demonstrations.
