The Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems 
(WWV, http://users.dsic.upv.es/grupos/elp/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.


Participation to WWV is open. The workshop is intended for, but not 
limited to, researchers from the communities of Rule-based programming, 
Software engineering, Formal methods and Web-oriented research.

Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot be 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 submitted through the EasyChair 
online submission system in PDF format, and should be prepared in LaTeX 
using the EPTCS-style format and should not exceed 15 pages (typeset 11 
points). 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.

We plan to publish the workshop post-proceedings as a volume of the 
EPTCS series.

The previous 7 editions of WWV attracted high quality papers that were 
published in ENTCS (WWV'05, WWV'07, WWV'08), IEEE (WWV'06) and EPTCS 
(WWV'11,WWV'12). After WWV'09, a special issue of the Journal of 
Symbolic Computation on the topics of the WWV has been organized. 
Similarly, a special issue of the Journal of Applied Logic has been 
organized after WWV'10, and a special issue of the Journal of Logic and 
Algebraic Programming is being organized after WWV'11 and WWV'12.
