Since its inception in 1999, the Web Site Evolution (WSE) series
of events have provided a forum for researchers and practitioners
to present original work on subjects related to the disciplined
evolution of large-scale Web sites.
We cordially invite you to participate in the 8th IEEE International
Symposium on Web Site Evolution (WSE 2006), to be held September
23-24, 2006, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Web site evolution is a rich research area. There are enough similarities
between large-scale Web sites and traditional legacy systems that
many of the proven tools and techniques can be redeployed in this
new application area. However, there are also enough differences
that the problem requires innovative solutions to the many new
problems unique to the discipline.
As a two-day symposium WSE 2006 aims to bring together members
of both the Software Maintenance & Evolution and Web Engineering
communities. The goal is to provide researchers and practitioners
working in the areas of Web application design, development,
maintenance and evolution with an environment to discuss results
and exchange experiences about models, methods, techniques
and technologies related to the above-mentioned areas.
Topics of interest of WSE 2006 include, but are not restricted
to, the following:
- Web design models and methodologies, at various levels of abstraction.
- Tools and techniques for the analysis, reverse engineering and
reengineering of legacy Web applications.
- Environments, tools and technologies for the development and
prototyping of Web applications.
- Empirical studies on Web applications.
- Web applications documentation.
- Quality evaluation of Web applications
- Costs/benefits estimation and evaluation.
WSE 2006 is co-located with the 22nd IEEE International Conference
on Software Maintenance (ICSM 2006). ICSM is the community's
flagship event focused on the modernization of existing systems.
The technical program of WSE 2006 will include invited talks,
paper presentations, and discussion sessions.
Participants are invited to submit original research papers or
experience reports, not exceeding 4000 words (8 pages using 10-point
type) including figure and references.
