HotWeb is a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of Internet systems and applications. Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and by IEEE-CS Technical Committee on the Internet, the workshop seeks to act as a conduit for the presentation of novel approaches used in support of performance, scalability, and security of Internet applications, including Web searching and indexing, content distribution and delivery networks, Web services, and edge and grid computing. 

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Content delivery architectures
  • Peer-to-Peer systems
  • Support for mobile and wireless systems
  • Web caching and replication
  • Edge services and dynamic content delivery
  • Multimedia content distribution
  • Overlay networks
  • Content placement and request routing
  • Measurement studies of deployed systems
  • Security and privacy
  • Wide-area upload and content gathering
  • Novel web-based applications
  • Web/database integration
  • Information retrieval and searching
  • Electronic commerce
  • Internet telephony

The HotWeb workshop is the successor of the WCW (Workshop on Web Content Caching and Distribution), and the WIAPP (Workshop on Internet Applications) workshops, both of which are merging to form HotWeb.

HotWeb 2006 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, by the IEEE CS Technical Committee on the Internet, by IBM Research, and by the Web and Internetworking Group at Boston University.

Submission of technical papers to HotWeb 2006 was closed on June 22, 2006. However, HotWeb 2006 is still accepting submissions of poster and demo presentations. Check here for details.
