The "Quality in Web Engineering" workshop (QWE) is aimed at bringing
together professionals and researchers interested in discussing recent
trends and perspectives in the role of quality in Web Engineering. The purpose of
QWE is to assess the effectiveness of existing approaches for evaluating
and managing the quality of Web resources (e.g., quality models, quality evaluation
methods, information quality tools, logging tools, automatic metric
capture tools, etc.), with the final objective of allowing researchers and
practitioners to discuss recent trends and open issues. An issue of
particular importance is when

and how the different quality characteristics should be exploited and
integrated into a well-defined Web development process. In this sense,
we are looking for contributions that discuss not only technical and theoretical
aspects, but also methodological and practical issues related with
quality for Web applications.

More information on the Workshop can be found at the Workshop Web site:


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

* Quality definition and assessment
- Information quality dimensions: estimation of information age,
provenance, validity, coverage, and completeness or correctness.
- Web sources reputation and trustworthiness
- Quality assessment and improvement methods
- Comparative analysis of quality metrics
- Theoretical/empirical validation of quality metrics
- Tools for automatic quality assessment

* Quality-aware design and development
- Quality guidelines, factors, criteria, metrics, patterns, and
- Ergonomic/HCI criteria and principles
- Usability and accessibility
- Quality of information integration on the Web
- Management of quality requirements in Web projects
- Role of groups, communities
- Integration of quality assessment activities in the development processes
- Early quality assessment (e.g., based on models, user interfaces
prototypes, etc.)
- User Experience
- Empirical studies
- Industrial experiences


The proceedings of ICWE 2013 workshops will be published by Springer in
its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper length is 12 pages. For
formatting guidelines and submission instructions please consult the
Paper Submission page at

We are also reaching an agreement with an international journal for a
post-workshop special issue.
