12th International Conference on Web Engineering
July 23 - 27, 2012, Berlin
*FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS*
The Twelfth International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2012) will be held on July 23 - 27, 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
ICWE aims at promoting scientific and practical excellence on Web Engineering, and at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in technologies, methodologies, tools, and techniques used to develop and maintain Web-based applications leading to better systems, and thus to enabling and improving the dissemination and use of content and services through the Web.
As of today, the vast majority of existing applications have been developed in an ad-hoc way, leading to problems and inefficiencies in granting maintainability, quality and reliability. Web applications are software artifacts, and as such can partly benefit from established practices stemming from several related disciplines such as Software Engineering, Hypermedia, Information Systems and HCI. However, the Web environment has its own characteristics that must be addressed, such as varied user population, short development cycles, diverse runtime environments, accessibility through multiple devices, etc. Recently, these aspects have become even more relevant due to the trends towards user-produced content, Web social networks and Web 2.0, massive availability of unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data on the Web, SOA and service-based redesign of enterprise software, and integration of the Web in the enterprise information systems.
Web Engineering addresses these issues and focuses on systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches towards the cost-effective development and evolution of high-quality, ubiquitously usable Web-based systems and applications.

Submission deadline: March 1st, 2012 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
Notification of acceptance: May 1st, 2012
Authors of the research and industrial papers track must explain the relationship of their work to the Web Engineering discipline in their submissions. Research papers must comprise substantial innovative discussion with respect to the related work and must be well motivated and presented.
Extension: Papers must not be longer than 15 (fifteen) pages.
Format: Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines.
Submission place: Submissions shall be accepted only through the ICWE 2012 Submission site on EasyChair at:
The ICWE 2012 program will also comprise keynote speeches, tutorials, and workshops (separate CfPs will be issued for the different tracks).
*PUBLISHING OF ACCEPTED WORKS*
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as an LNCS volume. Official proceedings will include: full papers (15 pages), demonstration papers (4 pages) and posters (4 pages). Workshop papers and contributions to the doctoral consortium will be published in a separate volume, in the Springer LNCS series too.
Final versions of accepted papers must strictly adhere to the LNCS guidelines and must include a printable file of the camera-ready version, as well as all source files thereof. No changes to such formatting rules are permitted. Authors of accepted papers must also download and sign a copyright form that will be made available on the Web site of the conference. Each paper requires at least one full registration to the main conference.
Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the JCR-indexed Journal Of Web Engineering (pending agreement).
