Submission instructions

Authors of the research and industrial papers track must explain the relationship of their work to the Web Engineering discipline in their submissions. Research papers must comprise substantial innovative discussion with respect to the related work and must be well motivated and presented.
Extension: Papers must not be longer than 15 (fifteen) pages.
Format: Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines.
Submission place: Submissions shall be accepted only through the ICWE 2012 Submission site on EasyChair.

Publishing of accepted works

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as an LNCS volume. Official proceedings will include: full papers (15 pages), demonstration papers (4 pages) and posters (4 pages). Workshop papers and contributions to the doctoral consortium will be published in a separate volume, in the Springer LNCS series too.

Final versions of accepted papers must strictly adhere to the LNCS guidelines and must include a printable file of the camera-ready version, as well as all source files thereof. No changes to such formatting rules are permitted. Authors of accepted papers must also download and sign a copyright form that will be made available on the Web site of the conference. Each paper requires at least one author to register to the main conference.

Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the JCR-indexed Journal Of Web Engineering (pending agreement).
