ComposableWeb 2011 : 3rd International Workshop on Lightweight Integration on the Web
Call For Papers
...to the 3rd International Workshop on Lightweight Integration on the Web (ComposableWeb 2011), to be held in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2011) in Paphos, Cyprus, from June 20-24, 2011.
Workshop Rationale and Aims
In the context of the Web, the word “mashup” is used to denote Web applications that are materialized by integrating data, services and/or presentation of other (data) sources or applications. Some applications focus on integrating RSS feeds, others on integrating RESTful services or SOAP services, others on Atom feeds, and there are those that focus on integrating user interfaces. We believe mashups – and especially mashup tools with their models, languages and instruments for mashup development – do bring innovation, in that they tackle integration at the user interface level (most mashups do integrate presentation content, not “just” data), they aim at simplicity more than completeness of features (up to the point that advanced Web users, not only programmers, can develop composite applications), and they allow fairly sophisticated development tasks in the web browser.
Over the last years, we have seen many efforts invested in research on mashups, in both the industrial and the academic context, yet we are still far from a common understanding of the problems that drive the research, of the approaches that best fit given problems, and even of the benefits of the results achieved so far.
In light of these considerations, the goal of ComposableWeb is to stimulate the discussion of key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications, and trends in the area of web mashups and lightweight composition on the Web, so as to accelerate progress. ComposableWeb aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners with different research interests and belonging to communities like Web Engineering, Service Engineering, Business Process Management, Databases, Semantic Web, Software Composition and Software Engineering.
Topics of Interest
Areas of particular interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to):
Web composition technologies
Web composition models and languages
Lightweight data integration
Lightweight application integration
Lightweight UI integration (integration at the presentation level)
Lightweight (semantic) metadata or knowledge integration
Design methodologies with/without user involvement
Domain-specific mashup approaches
New development models
Model-driven mashup approaches
End user oriented mashup approaches
User interface aspects of Web composition
Visual/graphical development metaphors
Context-aware and personalized Web composition/mashups
Usability and Accessibility of composite Web applications
Evaluation/quality of composite Web applications
Case studies and industrial experiences
Authors are invited to submit research papers and demo proposals. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages for research papers and 3 pages for demo proposals and should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format.
After the successful experience of the 2009 and 2010 editions, we explicitly dedicate at least one session of the workshop to demonstrations and hands-on discussions. Demos will be selected from the demo proposal submissions and from those accepted papers whose authors are willing to equip their presentation with an according demonstration.
Papers are submitted as PDF files via the ComposableWeb 2011 EasyChair conference management system:
Submitted research papers may not overlap with papers that have already been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
Accepted papers will be published on the workshop web site ahead of the workshop and in the ICWE 2011 workshop post-proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series. For a paper to be published, at least one of its authors must register for the main conference and register for and participate in the workshop.
Paper submissions: April 26, 2011
Author notification: May 26, 2011
Camera-ready submissions: June 13, 2011
