Welcome to the 15th International Conference on Web Engineering ICWE 2015!

ICWE 2015 edition

The 15th edition of ICWE is centered around the theme of “Engineering the Web in the Big Data Era”, hereby highlighting the impact Big Data has on Web engineering research. Big Data promises new data usages contributing to a change in our business practices. As the Web is a valuable producer and consumer of Big Data, it is imperative to analyse what are the implications of the Big Data phenomenon on Web engineering.

ICWE 2015 is innovating with the introduction of eight major research tracks that are aimed to focus expertise and create a strong identity for the Web engineering community. We are welcoming research and industrial contributions in all tracks.

In addition, ICWE also welcomes demonstrations and posters, PhD Symposium papers, tutorials, and workshops proposals. Please check the submission instructions in the different tracks.

ICWE 2015 best papers will be invited for a special issue of the JCR indexed Journal of Web Engineering!

About ICWE

The International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE), is the prime yearly international conference on the different aspects of designing, building, maintaining and using Web applications. ICWE is supported by the International Society for the Web Engineering (ISWE), and brings 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.

ICWE 2015 will be held on June 23-26, 2015, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It is the 15th edition of the conference.
