Web Engineering

The World Wide Web offers a global 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 e.g. supply chain management, online office tools, social networks, as well as a number of fields often simply called e-Business or Web 2.0. 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 process. This stands in contrast to the fact that today, still a vast majority of Web-based solutions are developed in an ad-hoc way. The distinct character of Web-based solutions poses requirements to the development process that forces a multidisciplinary approach, including fields like Software Engineering, HCI, Databases, Information Sciences, Distributed Systems, etc. -- As research discipline, Web Engineering focuses on systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches towards successful development, execution, and evolution of high-quality, ubiquitously usable Web-based solutions.

The Web Engineering track aims to promote research and scientific exchange related to Web Engineering. It covers processes, principles, methodologies, systems design, architectures and life cycle management of Web-based systems and 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:

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

Paper formatting requirements will be provided on the submissions page.
