ICWE’19 is inviting for proposals for high-quality workshops to complement its scientific program. Workshop topics should fall within the broad area of Web Engineering, but we specifically welcome workshops tackling novel, cutting-edge topics, workshops covering lesser-addressed Web Engineering sub-areas, and cross-discipline workshops. The workshops are highly encouraged to include interactive and hands-on sessions.

The organizers of approved workshops are responsible for advertising their workshops, collecting papers, managing the review process, making accepted papers available to workshop participants (e.g., workshop website), and collecting the camera-ready copies and copyright forms of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with formatting rules). Organizers are expected to physically attend, run, and manage their workshops. Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals will be provided by the local organizers.

ICWE’19 provides workshop organizers with the opportunity to publish workshop proceedings as part of its dedicated post-workshop proceedings to appear in Springer’s LNCS series. Typically, workshop papers are 12 pages long and peer-reviewed; other forms of contributions can be discussed and agreed on with the workshop chairs. Organizers who prefer their own proceedings are of course welcome as well.
