Call For Papers
We have witnessed the emergence of a new revolution: `The Web Revolution', which has resulted in the globalization of information access and publishing. World wide web researchers and practitioners face new technical challenges in advancing the world wide web technology from the globalization of access to the globalization of computing.

World Wide Web: Internet and Web Information Systems (WWW) is an international, archival, peer-reviewed journal which covers all aspects of the World Wide Web, including issues related to architectures, applications, Internet and Web information systems, and communities. The purpose of this journal is to provide an international forum for researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners to share their rapidly developing knowledge and report on new advances in Internet and web-based systems. The journal also focuses on all database- and information-system topics that relate to the Internet and the Web, particularly on ways to model, design, develop, integrate, and manage these systems.

Appearing quarterly, the journal publishes (1) papers describing original ideas and new results, (2) vision papers, (3) reviews of important techniques in related areas, (4) innovative application papers, and (5) progress reports on major international research projects. Papers published in the WWW journal deal with subjects directly or indirectly related to the World Wide Web. The WWW journal provides timely, in-depth coverage of the most recent developments in the World Wide Web discipline to enable anyone involved to keep up-to-date with this dynamically changing technology.

The WWW journal topical coverage includes, but is not restricted to, the following subjects as they relate to the World Wide Web:

Application program interfaces
Authoring tools and environments
Browsing and navigation techniques and tools
Collaborative learning and work
Computer-based training and teaching
Content mark-up languages, such as XML
Courseware development

In addition to the above Internet- and Web-specific topics, the WWW journal also encourages research work on all fundamental issues relating to database and information systems for the Internet and Web. The following are some sample topics of interest when they are addressed within the context of the Internet and Web:

Database and information systems support for cooperative work
Data mining and warehousing
Data models and meta-data management
Information retrieval
Interoperability and heterogeneous information systems
Multimedia database and information systems
Object-oriented and object-relational databases
Query processing
Transaction processing
Workflow systems

Special Issues
Special Issue on Mobile Crowdsourcing
Submission Date: 2017-01-31

In general, crowdsourcing is defined as the practice of obtaining needed services or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, and especially from an online community. Recently, with the rapid development of mobile Internet and mobile social networking techniques, the scope of crowd problem-solving systems using mobile devices has been broadened and the traditional Internet Crowdsourcing is evolving into a new paradigm, i.e., Mobile Crowdsourcing (MCS), which facilitates the increasing number of mobile device users to participate crowdsourcing tasks. On one hand, compared with Internet crowdsourcing, mobile crowdsourcing leverages both sensory data from mobile devices (offline community) and user-contributed data from mobile social networking services (online community). On the other hand, mobile crowdsourcing extends the original user participation scheme of crowdsourcing tasks, from explicit participation to implicit participation. As a result, quite a number of crowdsourcing tasks that are difficult to complete based on Internet crowdsourcing has now become feasible, e.g., monitoring pollution level or noise level at the city-scale, predicting the arrival time of buses, collecting the truth happenings after a disaster, etc. Meanwhile, mobile crowdsourcing also brings a number of challenges: How to build efficient infrastructure or framework to support MCS systems? How to fuse online and offline data to facilitate MCS applications? How to select workers and allocate tasks given the inherent mobility of potential MCS participants? How to accomplish MCS tasks unintentionally or with minimum user effort? How to ensure the performance of MCS (e.g., accuracy and coverage) with low quality data contributed by volunteers? What are the incentive mechanisms to encourage MCS participants? How to protect the privacy of MCS participants? This theme issue of WWWJ (indexed by SCI-E and EI) provides the opportunity for researchers and product developers to review and discuss the state-of-the-art and trends of MCS techniques and systems. Topics may include (but are not limited to): - Framework/Infrastructure for MCS systems - Data Collection and Intelligent Task Allocation for MCS - Incentive Mechanisms for MCS - Data Mining based on MCS - Data Quality, Trust, and Privacy - Knowledge Modeling and Management in MCS - Novel applications supported by MCS - Intelligent User Interfaces for MCS - Evaluation Metrics and Empirical Studies of MCS
