ICWE’18 is inviting for proposals for high-quality workshops to complement its scientific program. Workshop topics should fall within the broad area of Web Engineering, but we specifically welcome workshops tackling novel, cutting-edge topics, workshops covering lesser-addressed Web Engineering sub-areas, and cross-discipline workshops. The workshops are highly encouraged to include interactive and hands-on sessions.

The organizers of approved workshops are responsible for advertising their workshops, collecting papers, managing the review process, making accepted papers available to workshop participants (e.g., workshop website), and collecting the camera-ready copies and copyright forms of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with formatting rules). Organizers are expected to physically attend, run, and manage their workshops. Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals will be provided by the local organizers.

ICWE’18 provides workshop organizers with the opportunity to publish workshop proceedings as part of its dedicated post-workshop proceedings to appear in Springer's LNCS series. Typically, workshop papers are 12 pages long and peer-reviewed; other forms of contributions can be discussed and agreed on with the workshop chairs. Organizers who prefer their own proceedings are of course welcome as well.

  • General Information
    • Title of the workshop
    • Organizers and primary contact (name/affiliation/email)
    • Abstract (200 words), intended for the ICWE’18 website
    • Expected length of the workshop (full day, half day)
    • Relation and connection to ICWE, its topics, and its community
  • Objectives and Scope
    • Goals of the workshop including a list of possible workshop topics; if available, outcomes and results of previous editions of the workshop
    • Plans for advertising the workshop and making the workshop visible to the community
    • Estimated number of submissions and of papers to be accepted. If applicable, relevant information on previous editions of the workshop
    • Estimated number of participants. If applicable, relevant information on previous editions of the workshop
  • Organization Details
    • Information about workshop organizers: names, addresses, affiliations, short bio, and name of the main contact person. (Including relevant past experience in workshop organization)
    • Planned/ list of PC members
  • Workshop Format
    • Format of the workshop (paper-based, discussion-based, invitation-based, work sessions, or similar) – at least 1 hands-on session is highly recommended (see following point)
    • Format of hands-on session(s) (demos, hackaton, brainstorming, discussions, case elaboration, etc.)
  • Workshop web page (URL of the draft web page, if one exists)
  • Draft Call for Papers for the workshop (the Call for Papers that you intend to send out if your workshop is accepted)

Workshops 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

Workshops 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 (extended): January 18, 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.
