Workshop website:

April 21, 2010: Paper submission (23h59 Hawaii Time)

While the word "mashup" is widely used, it is not really clear what a
mashup is and what it is not. Some applications focus on integrating RSS
feeds, others on integrating RESTful services or SOAP services, others
of Atom feeds, and there are those that focus on integrating user
interfaces. However, we believe mashups - and especially mashup tools
with their models, languages and instruments for mashup development - do
bring innovation, in that they tackle integration at the user interface
level (most mashups do integrate presentation content, not "just" data),
they aim at simplicity more than completeness of features (up to the
point that advanced Web users, not only programmers, can develop
composite applications), and they allow fairly sophisticated development
tasks in the Web browser.

Over the last years, we have seen many efforts invested in research on
mashups, in both the industrial and the academic context, yet we are
still far from a common understanding of the problems that drive the
research, of the approaches that best fit given problems, and even of
the benefits of the results achieved so far.

In light of these considerations, the goal of ComposableWeb is to
stimulate the discussion of key issues, approaches, open problems,
innovative applications, and trends in the area of web mashups and
lightweight composition on the Web, so as to accelerate progress.

Areas of particular interest for the Workshop include (but are not
limited to):

- Web/service mashups
- Web composition technologies for data, services, and user interfaces
- Web composition models and languages
- Graphical support for Web composition/mashups
- Lightweight data integration
- Lightweight application integration
- Lightweight UI integration (integration at the presentation level)
- Lightweight (semantic) (meta)data or knowledge integration
- Design methodologies with/without user involvement
- New development models
- User interface aspects of Web composition
- Context-aware and personalized Web composition/mashups
- Usability and Accessibility of composite Web applications
- Evaluation/quality of composite Web applications
- Case studies and industrial experiences

ComposableWeb aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners
with different research interests and belonging to communities like Web
Engineering, Service Engineering, Business Process Management,
Databases, Semantic Web, Software Composition, and Software Engineering.

Authors are invited to submit full research papers (page limit: 12
pages) or short demo papers (page limit: 3 pages). In addition to the
traditional paper presentation sessions, there will be a session
dedicated to the demos.

Papers are submitted using the Easychair conference management system,
at All
papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format.
Submitted papers may not overlap with papers that have already been
published, or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference
or workshop.

Accepted papers will be made available on the workshop Web site ahead of
the workshop and as official Springer LNCS post-proceedings after the
workshop. For a paper to be published, at least one of its authors must
register for the main conference and participate in the workshop.
