The Fifth International Conference on Web Engineering will be held in July 2005 in Sydney, Australia at the University of Technology, Sydney. The ICWE'05 Conference continues the tradition of ICWE'04 in Munich, Germany, ICWE'03 in Oviedo, Spain, ICWE'02 in Santa Fé, Argentina and ICWE'01 in Cáceres, Spain.

The ICWE'05 conference aims to bring together the international community of experts in Web Engineering research, practice and education, to share their experiences and to foster discussion on the present status of and future trends in this rapidly growing field.

The conference focuses on the methodologies, techniques and tools that are the foundation of Web Engineering and which support the development, evolution, and evaluation of complex Web applications.

ICWE'05 invites original submissions in the area of Web Engineering. Contributions may fall in any of the following categories: papers, demonstrations, workshops, tutorials, and panels. The submissions may cover new approaches in Web Engineering, novel viewpoints and challenges on any aspect of Web Engineering, reports on the implementation or deployment of advanced Web projects in an industrial or application scenario, or descriptions of Web Engineering education experiences. Authors of submissions will be requested, as part of their submission, to explain the relationship of their work to the Web Engineering discipline.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. The Conference proceedings will be published by Springer as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Additionally, selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the Journal of Web Engineering after the conference.

Prizes and Awards:

The following prizes will be awarded during the ICWE conference:

1.  Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award: These awards will be given to those papers which the judging panel views as contributing most to the advancement of the Web Engineering discipline. To be eligible for the best student paper award, the first named author must have been a student at the time the paper was written and the paper must be predominantly reporting their work.

2.  Best presentation Award:  This award will be given to the paper presentation which the judging panel feels best demonstrated the effective delivery of a paper, particularly in terms of informing the audience, and engaging them in developing a clearer understanding of Web Engineering concepts.

Similarly authors of short papers can indicate whether they would like their paper to also be considered for acceptance as a poster. All the accepted submissions will be included in the Conference Proceedings.

For full submission details, please consult Submissions page. The details of formatting style are available as LNCS Formatting Style

ICWE 2005 provides a forum for discussing ongoing work. We welcome poster reports on in-progress projects, demonstrations of early versions of software tools and products, invitations to cooperate on new project ideas, etc. Please submit demonstration proposals to the Posters and Demo Chair, Emilia Mendes (emilia_mendes@yahoo.com).

Accepted posters and demonstrations will have a two-page description in the Conference Proceedings.
