Second International Workshop on
Lightweight Integration on the Web
In conjunction with ICWE 2010 – July 5-9, 2010, Vienna, Austria
Information integration, application integration and component-based software development have been among the most important research areas for decades. The aim of integration is that of creating new software products by integrating existing components and data, rather than entirely re-doing development from scratch. The last decade in this area has been characterized by a particular focus on web services, the very recent years by the advent of web mashups, a new and user-centric form of integration, and of lightweight composition approaches for the Web. Despite the few years of research in these latter areas, promising results have already been achieved in assisting mashup development, yet the research agenda is still full of exciting challenges.
ComposableWeb aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners that work on mashups and composition on the Web, in order to discuss past, present and especially future of the practice and to address its challenges. The workshop welcomes contributions that shed light on the area from different perspectives and particularly addresses communities like Web Engineering, Service Engineering, Business Process Management, Databases, Semantic Web, and Software Engineering.
Please have a look at the Call for Papers with a list of topics of interest and the submission instructions.
July 5, 2010: ComposableWeb held in conjunction with ICWE 2010. The workshop attracted about 30-40 participants, some of which also contributed to the discussion with live demos during the last session!
June 15, 2010: The final program of the workshop is now avaiable here. We encourage all participants in the workshop to download the accepted papers and to have a look at them before the workshop.
May 21, 2010: Due to some delays with the reviews, the notifications for authors will be sent out within the weekend, that is, by May 24 the latest. We are sorry for the inconvenience. For those who will get accepted, please have a look at this site to understand how to take advantage of the early registration fee.
May 4, 2010: In the context of a research project on quality in mashups involving Politecnico di Milan and University of Trento, we are conducting a small survey among mashup developers. Please have a look at the this questionnaire and help us a bit. It only takes few minutes!
May 3, 2010: We are proud to announce that Prof. Boualem Benatallah from UNSW, Sydney, Australia, has accepted to give a keynote at ComposableWeb 2010. Boualem has a very strong background in Web services, business processes, and data integration. Recently, he has also started working on mashups.
April 26, 2010: The submission system has been closed and review phase started. We expect to send out author notifications as expected.
April 20, 2010: Due to several requests, the deadline for paper submissions has been extended till April 26, 2010!
February 9, 2010: ComposableWeb'10 accepted for co-location with ICWE'10. Workshop web site goes online.
