Call For Papers

ICWE 2021 - Calls for Research Papers, Workshop Proposals, and Tutorials
21st International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2021)
May 18-21, Biarritz, France


* Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Northeastern University at Silicon Valley, US
* Christos Faloutsos, Carnegie Mellon University, US
* Fabrizio Silvestri, Facebook, UK


The conference will be held at Le Bellevue congress centre in Biarritz, France. Biarritz is an elegant seaside town, with long sandy beaches, known as the resort of the kings, easily reachable by car, train, and plane. Further information can be found at


The International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE) is the premier annual conference on Web Engineering and associated technologies. ICWE aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines in academia and industry to tackle the emerging challenges in: 1) the engineering of Web applications, 2) the problems of its associated technologies, and 3) the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The 21st edition of ICWE will accept contributions on a wide spectrum of topics related to Web Engineering, such as, among others:

* Web application modelling and engineering
* Web mining and knowledge extraction
* Web Big Data and Web data analytics
* Mobile Web applications
* Web of Things applications
* Social Web applications
* Web crowdsourcing and human computation
* Semantic Web, Web ontologies, and Linked Open Data applications
* Quality and accessibility aspects of Web applications
* Web composition and mashups
* Web user interfaces
* Web security and privacy
* Web programming
* Web services, computing, and standards

In addition to the research track, ICWE 2021 also seeks contributions of demos and posters, student papers to the PhD Symposium, tutorials, and workshops, which will be subject of individual calls.


This call addresses research contributions in one of the following categories:

* Full papers: mature, original research contribution. Reported results should be supported by some type of validation, and also include a justification about the choice/suitability of the validation method. In addition, evidence of use in practice and/or demonstration of scalability is regarded as a plus. (15 pages)

* Short papers: short papers presenting a discussion analysis, criticism, proposal, etc. about relevant aspects of Web engineering topics. These papers are intended to generate discussions that promise potential for research that will impact Web engineering in the coming years. (8 pages)

Papers must be formatted according to the information for Springer LNCS authors at and submitted in PDF. Papers submitted to ICWE 2021 must not be under review elsewhere while under consideration for ICWE 2021, nor may have been already previously published elsewhere. Submissions that are not in compliance with the required submission format or that are out of the scope of the conference will be desk rejected without reviewing. Accepted contributions will be included into the ICWE 2021 Springer LNCS proceedings.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer.

Submissions and reviewing are supported by the EasyChair system at


The best papers will be selected for possible inclusion after a peer-review, in extended form, in special issues of the following journals:

* Information Systems (Elsevier)
* Knowledge and Information Systems (Springer)
* Journal of Web Engineering (River Publishers)


ICWE 2021 is inviting proposals for high-quality workshops to complement its scientific program. Workshop topics should fall within the broad area of Web Engineering, but we specifically welcome workshops tackling novel, cutting-edge topics as well as workshops covering focused Web Engineering sub-areas, and cross-disciplinary workshops. The workshop organizers are highly encouraged to include interactive and hands-on working sessions.

The organizers of approved workshops are responsible for advertising their workshops, collecting papers, managing the review process, making accepted papers available to workshop participants (e.g., workshop website), and collecting the camera-ready copies and copyright forms of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with formatting rules). Organizers are expected to be present to attend, run, and manage their workshops. Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals will be provided by the local organizers.

ICWE 2021 provides workshop organizers with the opportunity to publish workshop proceedings as part of its dedicated post-workshop proceedings volume to appear in Springer’s LNCS series. Typically, workshop papers are 12 pages long and peer-reviewed; other forms of contributions can be discussed with the workshop chairs. Organizers who prefer to publish their own proceedings are of course welcome as well.


ICWE 2021 invites proposals for tutorials in a broad range of Web Engineering topics. Conference participants include researchers and practitioners who are seeking to gain insight and knowledge of up-to-date strategies, methodologies, technologies, and tools used for developing, maintaining and evolving Web applications. Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Web application development, modeling and engineering
- Web infrastructures and architectures
- Execution models, such as serverless computing
- Human computation and crowdsourcing applications
- Web application composition and mashups
- Social and Semantic Web technologies
- Web of Things middleware and applications
- Security, privacy, and identity on the Web
- Responsible Web data engineering and analytics
- Recommendations, influence maximization for the Web
- Graph Neural networks for Web applications
- Web standards

All proposed tutorials should be half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours) in length.
