ICWE aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines in academia and industry to tackle the emerging challenges in: 1) the engineering of Web applications, 2) the problems of its associated technologies, and 3) the impact of those technologies on society and culture. The 21st edition of ICWE will accept contributions on a wide spectrum of topics related to Web Engineering, such as, among others: * Web application modelling and engineering * Web mining and knowledge extraction * Web Big Data and Web data analytics * Mobile Web applications * Web of Things applications * Social Web applications * Web crowdsourcing and human computation * Semantic Web, Web ontologies, and Linked Open Data applications * Quality and accessibility aspects of Web applications * Web composition and mashups * Web user interfaces * Web security and privacy * Web programming * Web services, computing, and standards In addition to the research track, ICWE 2021 also seeks contributions of demos and posters, student papers to the PhD Symposium, tutorials, and workshops, which will be subject of individual calls. The conference will be held at Le Bellevue congress centre in Biarritz, France. Biarritz is an elegant seaside town, with long sandy beaches, known as the resort of the kings, easily reachable by car, train, and plane.

ORGANIZATION General Chair: Richard Chbeir, Universite de Pau & Pays de l'Adour, Biarritz, France Vice-General Chair: Flavius Frasincar, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Rotterdam, the Netherlands Program Co-Chairs: Marco Brambilla, Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy Ioana Manolescu, Inria and Institut Polytechnique de Paris, Paris, France 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) * 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) Papers must be formatted according to the information for Springer LNCS authors at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html 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. The best papers will be selected to be proposed, in extended form, as part of a special issue of the following journals: Information Systems journal, Knowledge and Information Systems journal, and Journal of Web Engineering. Authors should consult Springers 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. CONTACT All questions about submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information can be found at http://icwe2021.webengineering.org/.
