Call for for PhD Proposals 

12th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2012)



                     July 23-27, 2012, Berlin, Germany


          *** EXTENDED DEADLINE***




The ICWE 2012 Doctoral Consortium aims to improve the research of PhD
students and broaden 

their perspectives by giving them the opportunity to share and develop

their research ideas in a critical but supportive environment, get feedback
from mentors 

who are senior members of the Web engineering community, improve their
communication skills,

exchange ideas and build relationships with other Web engineering
international PhD students.


This event will bring together PhD students working on topics related to the
Web Engineering

field. The goal is to provide a forum for PhD students to present ongoing
research in a collaborative 

environment and share ideas with other young researchers in an international

Participants will discuss their research ideas and results, and receive
constructive feedback 

from an audience consisting of their peers as well as more senior
researchers experts in the 

field. The presentation of the work will be done in a relaxed atmosphere
during lunch 

with the support of a Doctoral Consortium PC member.


PhD students carrying out research in Web Engineering are invited to

submit a paper to the Doctoral Consortium, to be reviewed by

the program committee members. 

We particularly encourage submissions from students who are at the last

of their doctoral work but with sufficient time prior to completing 

their dissertation, and from those who are in the beginning stages 

but have a specific research proposal who can obtain 

valuable feedback about their research plans.


The criteria used for accepting a paper include potential quality of the

contribution of the work to the field of Web Engineering, originality

of the work, and overall quality of the position paper.


PhD proposals fitting to the conference topics are especially



    * Web application engineering

    * Processes and methods for Web application development
