Sobre estilo y redacción…

Los invito a visitar la página de español indispensable y urgente construida en la resaca de revisión de informes y documentos…. :)

Por supuesto, las fuentes básicas como la RAE, FUNDÉU o los libros de Fernando Ávila son indispensables en esta labor. No olviden que tienen versiones sobre dispositivos móviles y las contribuciones en Twitter de estas fuentes suelen ser bastante interesantes, al punto y pertinentes.

¡Ojalá sea de utilidad para todos!

   - WWW Applications and Technologies
   - Visualization
   - XML and other Extensible Languages
*** Papers ***
All papers will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. All accepted papers will be published under the ACM proceeding and will be included in the ACM Digital Library. Selected papers will be recommended for publication in several International Journals as a special RACS 2012 section.
*** Speical Workshop/Track Proposal ***
In conjunction with the RACS 2012, a number of special workshops and tracks will be organized. Workshop/track proposals which should include “Title of the workshop/track”, “Purpose of the workshop/track”, “Short bios of organizers”, “A tentative list of TPC”, and “A tentative website address” are to be sent to the program chair ( by April 10, 2012.

CAP Twelve Years Later: How the “Rules” Have Changed

The CAP theorem asserts that any networked shared-data system can have only two of three desirable properties. However, by explicitly handling partitions, designers can optimize consistency and availability, thereby achieving some tradeoff of all three.
