As many of you, the past 4 years in Amazon, I’ve spent on building out various parts of Amazon and AWS infrastructure that will enable Amazon and other AWS users to build highly available and scalable applications.
This also gives me immense pleasure to be part of the program committee for Usenix WebApps 2011. This conference is primarily focused on building highly scalable and Web applications. Looking forward to reviewing some great submissions and the conference.
I highly recommend submitting your ideas.

The Web is now the dominant platform for delivering interactive applications to hundreds of millions of users. Such applications are now expected to scale effortlessly from tens of users to tens of millions of users in a single day while providing a responsive “always-on” experience. These demands, as well as the new possibilities opened by the proliferation of Web-capable mobile devices, requires that Web apps’ design and operation be elastic, failure-tolerant, and seamlessly scalable, supporting multiple devices and access methods.
Like the inaugural WebApps ’10, WebApps ’11 seeks to attract cutting-edge research that advances the state of the art, not only on novel Web applications but also on infrastructure, 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
- 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, toolkits, plug-ins
- Server-side frameworks
- Languages and language engineering advances relevant to Web app development
- Deployment substrates and technologies (cloud computing, infrastructure as a service, testing as a service, etc.)
