December 14-16, 2009: 	Workshop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

E-commerce and m-commerce have dramatically boosted the demand for web 
applications and web services which enable ubiquitous access. Ubiquity 
offers new opportunities in terms of time-aware, location-aware, 
device-aware and personalized services not only extending traditional 
web applictions but even offering new kinds of application scenarios 
like mobile tourism guides and mobile healthcare.
   The unique character of ubiquitous web applications puts forward new 
challenges with respect to their development, requiring a holistic view 
on the issue of ubiquity. During the past 10 years, academia has 
provided various development approaches for web applications in general 
and ubiquitous web applications in specific, each aiming at 
counteracting technology-driven and ad-hoc development. However, further 
work towards methodological and engineering principles for developing 
ubiquitous web applications along the whole life cycle, backed up by 
appropriate real-world case studies is desirable, paving the way to a 
broader adoption of these approaches in industry.
   The goal of UWA|2009 is therefore to provide an international forum 
for scientists, engineers, and industry to address recent research 
results and to discuss their ideas and experiences on theoretical and 
practical issues arising in the field of ubiquitous web applications. 
UWA|2009 aims at supplementing other conferences and workshops in the 
fields of context-awareness and web engineering by its distinct focus on 
engineering, technology and empirical aspects of ubiquitous web 

Pursuing the overall goal, the workshop program will include peer 
reviewed technical papers around, but not limited to, the following topics:
Engineering Aspects of Ubiquitous Web Applications
* Model-driven development methodologies and domain specific languages 
* Generic, domain-, and application-specific context models and 
adaptivity modelling
* Bridging conceptual design and implementation
* Frameworks and architectures
Technology Aspects of Ubiquitous Web Applications
* Integration of context sources and context models
* Employment of semantic web technologies for context-awareness
* Ubiquity through aspect-oriented techniques
* Exploitation of Web 2.0 techniques
Empirical Aspects of Ubiquitous Web Applications
* Experience reports on the (model-driven) development of ubiquitous web 
* Reference examples and usability studies
* Systematic evaluations of development methods
* Evaluation metrics and evaluation criteria

UWA|2009 papers will be published together with iiWAS 2009 and MoMM 2009 
as printed proceedings by ACM Digital Library and
Austrian Computer Society (OCG).
   Authors of distinguished papers will be invited to submit an extended 
version to a special issue of the International Journal of Web 
Information Systems http://www.emeraldinsight.com/ijwis.htm

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format as instructed at 
http://www.schwinger.at/UWA2009. The submitted papers may not exceed 10 
pages and must follow the OCG guidelines 
(http://www.iiwas.org/conferences/iiwas2009/cfp.htm). Submitted papers 
must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or 
that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop. 
They will be blindly peer reviewed by at least three members of the 
program committee.
