    Call for Papers: Special Issue on Web Engineering

    Web engineering has provided several important research and practical
    results especially during the last decade. However, very few of them
    have transferred to real-life projects. Engineers are unable to study
    all these results, since it is a time consuming task, difficult to be
    accomplished in the strict timeline of a project. As more research
    results come up every year, they constitute a very complex information
    space that itself need to be engineered, in order to be provided to
    developers in a meaningful and comprehensive way. The World Wide Web
    and its associated technologies have become a major implementation and
    delivery platform for a large variety of applications, ranging from
    simple institutional information websites to sophisticated supply-chain
    management systems, financial applications, e-government, distance
    learning, and entertainment, among others. Such applications, in
    addition to their intrinsic functionality, also exhibit the more
    complex behavior of distributed applications.

    Recently, there have been some advances towards re-framing the
    development - both design and implementation - of Web applications as a
    disciplined and systematic endeavor. However, the vast majority of
    existing applications have been developed in an ad-hoc way, leading to
    problems of maintainability, quality and reliability. Web applications
    are software artifacts, and as such can benefit by making use of
    established practices stemming from several related disciplines such as
    Software Engineering, Hypermedia, Information Systems and HCI, enabling
    creation, management and reuse of structures of the information space
    as well as enhancing the end user experience. In addition, it has its
    own characteristics which must be addressed, such as a varied user
    population, very short development turnaround times, diverse runtime
    environments, accessibility through multiple devices, etc.

    Web Engineering addresses these issues and focuses on systematic,
    disciplined and quantifiable approaches towards the cost-effective
    development and evolution of high-quality, ubiquitously usable
    Web-based systems and applications.
    The Special Issue of Engineering Letters on Web Engineering covers
    processes, methodologies, system design, architectures, lifecycle and
    management of large Web-based systems, as well as education and
    research issues. In addition, illustrative case studies and best
    practices showing successful employment of Web Engineering techniques
    and principles are also welcome.
    Topics include, but not limited to:

    Web application development processes and methodologies
    Collaborative Web application development
    Design models and methods
    Hypertext models and their application on the Web
    OO technology and component-based Web engineering
    Federated and cross-organizational Web applications
    Service-oriented Web application approaches
    Web application frameworks and architectures
    Peer-to-Peer approaches for Web application architectures
    Reuse and integration
    Systematic reuse of Web services
    Use and integration of meta-data in Web applications
    Web design patterns and pattern mining
    Managing Web application design, evolution and maintenance
    Web personalization
    Adaptive Web applications
    Web metrics, quality measures and evaluation
    Web application usability
    Testing automation, methods and tools for Web applications
    Web application deployment
    Performance modeling, monitoring and evaluation
    Development teams and Web project management
    Legal obligations
    Case studies
    Authors must submit an electronic copy (in Word or pdf) of their
    complete manuscript directly to the Guest Editor ( or
    ) with subject "Submission to EL".

    Submitted papers must be original and not submitted for concurrent
    consideration elsewhere. All submitted papers will be subject to the
    standard journal refereeing process and evaluated on originality,
    relevance, significance, and readability. There are no page charges for
    papers that appear in the special issue. Submission details are
    available through
    Papers will be reviewed by two independent reviewers. The indicative
