inaugurates a series of co-located events that covers the complementary 
aspects related
to designing and deploying of applications based on IP&Web techniques 
and mechanisms.
The main conference focuses on several tracks concerning Web 
technologies, design and
development of Web-based applications, and interactions of these 
applications with other
types of systems. Management aspects related to these applications and 
challenges on
specialized domains are aided at too. Evaluation techniques and standard 
position on
different aspects are part of the expected agenda.

The call for submissions covers both theoretical and experimental 
topics. Authors are
invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under 
review in any other
conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas. 
Industrial presentations
are not subject to these constraints. Tutorials on specific related 
topics and panels on
challenging areas are encouraged.
