Call for Research Papers

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:

In addition to the research track, ICWE 2016 seeks contributions of vision papers, demos and posters, industry and in-practice papers, student papers to the PhD Symposium, tutorials, and workshops, which are the subject of individual calls for submissions.
