Call For Papers

16th International Conference on Web Engineering
6-9 June 2016, Lugano, Switzerland

ICWE aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines in academia and industry to tackle the emerging challenges in the engineering of Web applications and in the problems of its associated technologies, as well as the impact of those technologies on society, media and culture.

The 16th edition of ICWE will accept contributions related to different dimensions of Web applications:

- Web application modeling and engineering
- Web applications composition and mashup
- Social Web applications
- Semantic Web applications
- Human computation and crowdsourcing applications
- Web of Things applications

ICWE 2016 seeks contributions of full research papers, vision papers, demos and posters, industry and in-practice papers, student papers to the PhD Symposium, tutorials, and workshops.

Awards will be given to the best paper, the best student paper (where the first author is a student), the best vision paper, the best poster demo presentation, the best tool demonstration as well as to the top-10% papers according to the program committee review feedback.

Submission Information

Full research 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. (max. 18 pages)

Short research papers: description of preliminary results and/or ongoing efforts that present new ideas and concepts, but lack the completeness (e.g., validation, evaluation, implementation) of full research papers. This category focuses on allowing authors of promising work and late breaking results to attend ICWE, offering a venue for discussion to obtain early feedback on early research (8 pages);

Vision papers: discussion, analysis, criticism, proposal, original positions about relevant aspects of Web engineering topics. These papers are intended to generate discussions on promising research that will impact Web engineering in the coming years. (max. 8 pages)

Web Engineering in practice papers: description of real-world applications, case studies, experiences from the field that are highly innovative, insightful and discuss trends in the market and/or challenge the community to find solutions to new problems (max 18 pages).

Demo papers: description of innovative uses of existing tools and ideas from the practice. Demonstration submissions must describe working systems, based on state-of-the-art Web technology. (max 4 pages)

Poster papers: opportunity to show-case and present in an informal setting late-breaking results, recent advances, or work in progress. (max 4 pages)

PhD Symposium papers: a forum for PhD students to present ongoing research in a collaborative environment and share ideas with other young researchers in an international atmosphere. (max 6 pages)

Papers must be formatted according to the information for Springer LNCS authors at and submitted in PDF. Accepted contributions will be included into the ICWE 2016 Springer LNCS proceedings.

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.

Submissions and reviewing are supported by the EasyChair system at

Papers submitted to ICWE 2016 must not be under review elsewhere while under consideration for ICWE 2016, nor may have been already previously published elsewhere.
