Organizations are continuously overwhelmed by a variety of new
information  technologies, many are Web based.  These new technologies are
capitalizing on the widespread use of network and communication technologies for
seamless integration of various issues in information and knowledge sharing
within and among organizations.  This emphasis on integrated approaches is
unique to this journal and dictates cross platform and multidisciplinary
strategy to research and practice.

The Mission of the Journal
The main objective of the journal is to publish refereed papers in the
area covering Information Technology (IT) concepts, tools, methodologies,
and ethnography, in the contexts of global communication systems and Web
engineered applications.  In accordance with this emphasis on the Web
and communication systems, the journal publishes papers on IT research and
practice that support seamless end-to-end information and knowledge
flow among individuals, teams, and organizations.

This end-to-end strategy for research and practice requires emphasis
on integrated research among the various steps involved in data/knowledge
(structured and unstructured) capture (manual or automated),
classification and clustering, storage, analysis, synthesis, dissemination,
display, consumption, and feedback.  The secondary objective is to assist in
the evolving and maturing of IT-dependent organizations, as well as
individuals, in information and knowledge based culture and commerce, including

Topics to be included are the following.  Please refer to the web site
for more detailed list of topics.

* Web systems architectures, including distributed, grid computer, and
communication systems processing
* Web systems design and performance engineering studies
* Web user interfaces design, development, and usability engineering
* RFID research and applications in web engineered systems
* Mobile, location-aware, and ubiquitous computing
* Ontology and semantic Web studies
* Software agent-based for web-engineered applications
* Integrated user profile, provisioning, and context-based processing
* Security, integrity, privacy and policy issues
