Short research and Vision papers

Short research papers present emerging research contributions, preliminary results, and/or ongoing research that include original concepts, but lack the completeness (e.g., validation, evaluation, implementation) of full research papers. The goal of this category is to allow authors of promising work and late breaking results to attend ICWE, with an opportunity to obtain early feedback on their research. (max 8 pages)

Vision papers are intended to generate debate on emerging issues that will impact Web engineering in the coming years. To this end, they can provide discussion, analysis, criticism, proposal, and/or original positions about relevant aspects of Web Engineering topics. (max 8 pages)

Short research and Vision papers will accept contributions related to different dimensions of Web Engineering. We are inviting authors to submit high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results in the following topics:

  • 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

Short research and Vision papers proposals should be submitted as a single PDF file in the EasyChair system as described in the SUBMISSION INFORMATION SECTION.

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: March 11, 2018
  • Acceptance notification: March 30, 2018

Submission Information

All submitted papers must be formatted in accordance to the information for Springer LNCS authors at and submitted in PDF. Accepted contributions will be included into the ICWE 2018 Springer LNCS proceedings.

Submissions and reviewing are supported by the EasyChair system.

ICWE’18 will follow the single-blind review process. Consequently, all submissions should include the names and affiliation of all authors, and this information is made visible to the reviewers. Still, the identity of the reviewers will be kept confidential from the authors.

Papers submitted to ICWE’18 must not be under review elsewhere while under consideration for ICWE’18, nor may they have been previously published elsewhere.

Submissions that do not comply with the required submission format or that fall outside the scope of the conference will be desk rejected without reviewing.

At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the conference and present the work during the corresponding session.
