WWV 2012 : 8th International Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems
Conference Series : Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Sites
Call For Papers
The Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems (WWV) is a yearly workshop that aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum to facilitate the cross-fertilization and the advancement of hybrid methods that combine Rule-based programming, Automated software engineering, and Web-oriented research. Started in 2005, the series of this workshop established itself as a lively, friendly event with many interactions and discussions.
The increased complexity of Web sites and the explosive growth of Web-based applications has turned their design and construction into a challenging problem. Nowadays, many companies have diverted their Web sites into interactive, completely-automated, Web-based applications (such as Amazon, on-line banking, or travel agencies) with a high complexity that requires appropriate specification and verification techniques and tools. Systematic, formal approaches to the analysis and verification can address the problems of this particular domain with automated and reliable tools that also incorporate semantic aspects.
We solicit original papers on formal methods and techniques applied to Web sites, Web services or Web-based applications, such as:
Rule-based approaches to Web system analysis, certification, specification, verification, and optimization.
Languages, models and techniques for designing, programming, and maintaining web systems.
Formal methods for describing and reasoning about Web systems.
Model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web systems.
Automatic processing of Web systems, including filtering, bloc detection and information retrieval from Web pages.
Analysis and verification of linked data.
Abstract interpretation and program transformation applied to the semantic Web.
Intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications authoring.
Middleware and frameworks for composition and orchestration of Web services
Web quality and Web metrics.
Web usability and accessibility.
Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications.

Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot be under review for publication elsewhere. Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation by at least three reviewers, chosen by the Program Committee. Contributions should be in PDF format and prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS-style format (http://style.eptcs.org/) and should not exceed 15 pages (typeset 11 points).
Submissions are handled using the EasyChair online system. Papers should be submitted to the submission website for WWV 2012.
Accepted papers will be included in the pre-proceedings, which will be made available in electronic form through this web site. Submission is a firm commitment that at least one of the authors will attend the workshop, if the paper is accepted.
After the workshop, authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare, by incorporating insights gathered during the event, a final version of their paper to be published in the post-proceedings.
Workshop post-proceedings will be published as a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
