The Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems
(WWV) is a yearly workshop that aims at providing an interdisciplinary
forum to facilitate the cross-fertilization and the advancement of hybrid
methods that exploit concepts and tools drawn from Rule-based programming,
Software engineering, Formal methods and Web-oriented research.

Nowadays, many companies and institutions have diverted their Web sites
into interactive, completely-automated, Web-based applications for, e.g.,
e-business, e-learning, e-government and e-health. The increased complexity
and the explosive growth of Web systems has made their design and
implementation a challenging task. Systematic, formal approaches to their
specification and verification can permit to address the problems of this
specific domain by means of automated and effective techniques and tools.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not
limited to:
- Rule-based approaches to Web system analysis, certification,
specification, verification, and optimization.
- Languages and models for programming and designing Web systems.
- Formal methods for describing and reasoning about Web systems.
- Model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web systems.
- Analysis and verification of linked data.
- Abstract interpretation and program transformation applied to the
semantic Web.
- Intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications
- Middleware and frameworks for composition and orchestration of Web
- Web quality and Web metrics.
- Web usability and accessibility.
- Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications.




Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot be
under review for publication elsewhere. Each paper will undergo a thorough
evaluation by at least three reviewers, chosen by the Program Committee.
Contributions should be in PDF format and prepared in LaTeX using the
EPTCS-style format (http://style.eptcs.org/) and should not exceed 15 pages
(typeset 11 points).

Submissions are handled using the EasyChair online system and can be
uploaded using the following link:

Submission is a firm commitment that at least one of the authors will
attend the workshop, if the paper is accepted.


Accepted papers will be included in the pre-proceedings, which will be made
available in electronic form through the WWV web site. After the workshop,
authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare, by incorporating
insights gathered during the event, a final version of their paper to be
published in the post-proceedings.

Workshop post-proceedings will be published as a volume of the EPTCS
(Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science, http://eptcs.org/)

An open call for a special high-quality journal issue on the topic of the
WWV workshop is envisaged.
