The conference will cover the different aspects of Web Engineering, including the design, creation, maintenance and usage of Web applications. ICWE2018 is endorsed by the International Society for the Web Engineering (ISWE) and belongs to the ICWE conference series owned by ISWE.

Conference

What is our goal?

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 conference will be held at the Department of Software Engineering of the University of Extremadura in Cáceres, Spain.

The 18th edition of ICWE will accept contributions related to different dimensions of Web Engineering:

  • 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 applications
  • Web of Things applications
  • Big Data and data analytics
  • Security, privacy, and identity on the Web
  • Web standards

VENUE

Cáceres is a Spanish city situated in a strategic position just in the middle between Madrid and Lisbon. It stands out for its mixture of culture, history and nature. Every corner of Cáceres transmits a calm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Conference delegates will be able to enjoy each of these corners while they walk to the conference venue or in their leisure time.
With 100,000 inhabitants, Cáceres is the second most populous city in the region of Extremadura, cradle of some of the most famous conquistadors of the world. This region stands out for its Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm summers that have facilitated the growth of truly amazing natural areas. Conference delegates will be able to enjoy a large number of outdoor activities. Cáceres is one of the four campuses of the University of Extremadura (Cáceres, Badajoz, Mérida and Plasencia). This university was founded in 1973 and has more than 25,000 students and 8,000 PhD students enrolled.

The old town was declared World Heritage in 1986

With one of the world’s most intact mediaeval and renaissance city centres, the Council of Europe declared the old town of Cáceres Europe's third historical city in 1968 (after Prague and Tallin) and the UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1986. The historical monuments inside the city walls have borne witness to the different cultures that have lived there and which demonstrate their wealth and diversity of styles. St. Mary’s Concathedral, the Veletas Palace (archaeological museum), the Golfines palaces and the House of the Sun are some of the city’s most beautiful and admirable monuments.

A city and an environment full of cultural events based on its roots and traditions

The mixture of cultures and the strong historical basis on which Cáceres is based makes it possible to offer a great number of cultural events, such as the WOMAD (World Of Music, Arts and Dance, which is the longest established cultural event in the world), the mediaeval festival (in which the three cultures on which Cáceres is founded come alive again) and the classical theatre festival (in which classical plays are held in the most emblematic places of the city). Extremadura is a land of roots and tradition that are shown in its folklore. Jaramplas, Carantoñas and Peropalo are examples of the most emblematic traditions and festivals of the region, which have been declared Festivals of National Tourist Interest. Conference delegates could enjoy a variety of cultural events in the region that will perfectly complement their stay.

Cáceres was in 2015 the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy

The gastronomy in Extremadura is one of the greatest attractions. In Cáceres, gastronomy rises to a level of "religion", given its variety and richness. Conference delegates will taste some of the most typical dishes: “Torta del Casar” cheese, “Pimentón de la Vera”, the cherries of the valley of Jerte or Fig Chocolates. There are highly qualified restaurants - some of them with Repsol “soles” and Michelin stars - with a varied offer in their menus, where the traditional recipes coexist with a new and modern cuisine. This rich and varied gastronomy, led the city to achieve in 2015 the title of Spanish Capital of Gastronomy organized by the Spanish Federation of Hospitality and the Spanish Federation of Journalists and Writers of Tourism.
