QUATIC 2014 (
*** Thematic Track  on “Quality in Web Engineering” ***

The World Wide Web has become a major delivery platform for a variety of complex and sophisticated applications in several domains. In addition to their multifaceted functionality, these Web applications exhibit complex behavior and place unique requirements on their ubiquitous usability, performance, security and ability to grow and evolve. The need therefore arises for adequate models and methods addressing multiple quality aspects.

Web development can benefit from established practices for quality assessment inherited from other related disciplines. However, it also has distinguishing characteristics which are mainly due to its inherent multidisciplinary, encompassing contributions from diverse areas, such as systems analysis and design, requirements engineering, software and data engineering, distributed system design, hypermedia/hypertext engineering human-computer interaction, user experience design.

Given the importance of the above issues, the track on “Quality in Web Engineering” @QUATIC 2014 aims at collecting novel contributions on how to enhance the quality of web-based systems by means of adequate Web Engineering techniques, as well as on how to integrate quality assurance in the Web Engineering lifecycle itself. Suggested topics of interest refer to different aspects related to quality models, quality assessment methods and quality-aware development practices. They include, but are not restricted to:

* Quality requirements 
* Quality models for different classes of Web applications (traditional Web applications, Web2.0 applications, Web mashups, Web APIs, …)
* Information quality
* Reputation and trustworthiness of Web resources
* Usability and Accessibility, with specific emphasis on the new technologies and standards for the Web
* User Experience
* Quality assessment of Web application models
* Quality-aware design methods
* Quality-aware code generation
* Architectural and design patterns to enhance quality in Web applications
* Quality of Web application development environments and case tools
* Quality in Web engineering project management (cost estimation, risk management, measures, …)
* Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications (early (model-based) inspection, automated evaluation, usage analysis, …)
* Empirical studies in Web engineering

Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper at the page:
Papers must be in IEEE format and not exceed 6 pages, including figures, references, and appendices. Submissions must be original and will be reviewed by the Track Program Committee. 
Accepted papers will be published in the electronic IEEE proceedings of QUATIC 2014, subject to one of the authors registering for the conference. The authors of the 3 best papers of this thematic track will be invited to submit extended versions to the main track of the conference.
