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

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, 
   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


Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot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

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

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.
