ICWE2021 – Submissions to the research track 

This call addresses research contributions in one of the following categories:

  • Full papers: mature, original research contribution. Reported results should be supported by some type of validation, and also include a justification about the choice/suitability of the validation method. In addition, evidence of use in practice and/or demonstration of scalability is regarded as a plus. (15 pages including references)
  • Short papers: short papers presenting a discussion – analysis, criticism, proposal, etc. – about relevant aspects of Web engineering topics. These papers are intended to generate discussions that promise potential for research that will impact Web engineering in the coming years. (8 pages including references)

Papers must be formatted according to the information for Springer LNCS authors and submitted in PDF. Papers submitted to ICWE 2021 must not be under review elsewhere while under consideration for ICWE 2021, nor may have been already previously published elsewhere. Submissions that are not in compliance with the required submission format or that are out of the scope of the conference will be desk rejected without reviewing.

Accepted contributions will be included into the ICWE 2021 Springer LNCS proceedings. A selected number of best papers will be invited for possible inclusion, in an expanded and revised form, in the following journals

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer.

Submissions and reviewing are supported by the EasyChair system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icwe2021.


All questions about submissions should be emailed to icwe2021@easychair.org
