Call for Workshops

ICWE 2016 is looking for high-quality workshops to complement its scientific program. Interested workshop organizers are invited to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with ICWE 2016 in Lugano, Switzerland, in June 06-09. The goal of the workshops program is to provide a forum where to present and discuss ongoing work in friendly, open and informal settings.

Topics of interest include all areas of Web Engineering. ICWE 2016 specifically welcomes workshops tackling novel, cutting-edge topics, workshops covering lesser-addressed WE sub-areas, cross-discipline workshops and workshops dealing with possible and expected future evolutions of the Web. ICWE 2016 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., online), 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 and manage their workshops. Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals are provided by the local organizers.

ICWE 2016 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 (confirmation a subject of the accepted workshops). 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 or no proceedings are of course welcome as well.
