Web Engineering

The World Wide Web offers a global implementation and delivery platform for an increasing number of applications that have a major impact on business as well as everyday life. These applications come from a diversity of domains, including inter-organizational workflows, e-Business, e-Government, e-Health, and social networks, to name a few. The elements that constitute these solutions seem to be linked with many different aspects and disciplines. Web applications rely upon the existence of a whole range of infrastructures, technologies, and tools. Furthermore, they must allow for aesthetical, psychological, and social aspects to deliver solutions that fit into the ubiquitous ecosystem of the Web.

With the growing number of fields and business-critical tasks to be supported comes a vital need for systematic approaches to the development of Web applications. This stands in contrast to the fact that today, still a vast majority of Web applications is developed in an ad-hoc manner. The distinct character of Web applications poses requirements to the development process that force a multidisciplinary approach, including fields like Software Engineering, Data Engineering, HCI, Information Sciences, and Distributed Systems. As research discipline, Web Engineering focuses on systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches towards successful development, deployment, and evolution of high-quality, ubiquitously usable Web applications.

The Web Engineering track aims to promote research and scientific excellence related to Web Engineering. It covers processes, principles, methods, models, and architectures supporting the development of Web applications. In addition, case studies of innovative applications and scenarios that are meeting today's fast moving requirements as well as best practices showing successful employment of Web Engineering techniques and principles are also welcome.

The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Processes and methods for Web application development
  • Conceptual modeling of Web applications
  • Model-driven Web application development
  • Domain-specific languages and approaches for Web application development
  • Object-oriented and component-based Web application development
  • Web application architectures and frameworks
  • Patterns for Web application development and pattern mining
  • Web content management and data-intensive Web applications
  • Web service engineering
  • Semantic Web services
  • Web service-based architectures and applications
  • Quality of service and its metrics for Web applications
  • Web usability and accessibility
  • Testing and evaluation of Web applications
  • Deployment and usage analysis of Web applications
  • Empirical Web engineering
  • Mobile Web applications and device-independent delivery
  • Adaptive and personalized Web applications
  • Web-based workflows and collaborative Web applications
  • Federated and inter-organizational Web applications
  • Case studies, best practices and experiment reports for Web application development
  • Web engineering in the context of Web science

Papers discussing relationships and interactions relating Web development with other disciplines are also invited.

Paper formatting requirements are provided on the Submission page.
