ICWE 2014 - 14th International Conference on Web Engineering
Engineering the Web for users, developers and the crowd

Call for Papers
Quality aspects of Web applications Track
“Assessing the many qualities of Web applications”

Toulouse, France* |*July 1-4 2014*  -

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 and culture.

The 14th edition of ICWE is centered around the theme of "/Engineering
the Web for users, developers and the crowd/", hereby highlighting the
importance of all the different people that, somehow, participate in
the development process of interactive Web applications and,
ultimately, becomes the actors and the main users of the best practices
and results of the research performed in the domain of the Web

ICWE 2014 is innovating with the introduction of six major research
tracks: cross-media and mobile applications, HCI and the Web, modeling
and engineering web applications, quality aspects of Web applications,
social web applications, and Web applications composition and mashups.
In addition to the six research tracks, ICWE 2014 also welcomes
contributions as demos and posters, student papers to the PhD
Symposium, tutorials and workshops, which will be subject of individual
calls for papers. The conference will be held at Toulouse, France
Toulouse which is the 3rd university city of France and it hosts one of
the oldest in Europe (founded in 1229). Further information on the web

Track Goal
The development and usage of Web applications in different platforms
and devices are continuously increasing. Web applications have become
the most predominant form of software delivery today, with users and
businesses choosing to rent or use software rather than buy it. The
success of such applications depends on their capability to satisfy the
customer needs. This has led to increased attention on quality models,
processes and methods that facilitate understanding, evaluating, and
especially improving the overall quality of products, processes and
quality in use.

The aim of this track is to solicit contributions on methods,
techniques and tools that allow capturing user requirements and needs
effectively and ensure their fulfillment through the Web application
development and maintenance. This track regroups the topics related to
requirements, quality metrics and evaluation methods for assessing Web

Topics of Interest
Topics in this track might include (but not limited to) the following:

• Functional and non-functional requirements for Web applications
• Web requirements elicitation, analysis, validation and verification
• Empirical studies describing emerging requirements for Web
• Web Quality models, guidelines, factors, criteria, metrics, patterns,
    and recommendations
• Quality of service and metrics for Web applications development
• Quality of SaaS applications and Mashups
• Information quality assessment and quality of information integration
    on the Web
• Quality in Web engineering project management (size, cost estimation,
    risk management, measures, etc.)
• Performance modeling, monitoring, and evaluation
• Integration of quality assessment activities in the development
• Methods and tools for testing and evaluating Web applications
• Deployment and usage analysis of Web applications
• Web usability and accessibility
• Web security, trust and privacy
• Web GIS quality
• Quality of Web application development environments and case tools
• Empirical Web engineering

This call is concerned by research and industrial contributions in one
of the following categories:

* Full research papers: mature, original research contribution ideally
accompanied with some type of formal/empirical validation, evidence of
use in practice and/or demonstration of scalability (18 pages)

* Industrial papers: description of commercial solutions that are
highly innovative, discuss trends in the market and/or challenge the
community to find solutions to new problems (18 pages)

* Late breaking results: description of preliminary results and/or
ongoing efforts that present new ideas and concepts. (10 pages)

Obs.:  Accepted contributions will be included into the ICWE 2014
Springer LNCS proceedings.
