       1st International Educators' Day on Web Engineering Curricula

                       July 6, 2010, Vienna, Austria



Web methodologies and technologies are evolving at a constantly high
pace. It is essential for academics on the one side, to provide proper
education for students at the undergraduate and graduate level. At
same time, industry is struggling to get adequately trained engineers
that are able to deal with the increasing complexity of today’s Web

The Educators' Day on Web Engineering Curricula (WECU 2010) will
be organised as a half-day event held in conjunction with ICWE 2010
(http://icwe2010.webengineering.org/), which takes place from July 5-9,
2010, in Vienna, Austria.

WECU attempts to get together people from academia and industry to
discuss best practise in teaching, education and vocational training of
Web Engineering methodologies and technologies.

The expected outcome of the event is to identify common concepts and
building blocks for successful Web Engineering curricula, to discuss
proposals of how to deal with the challenges in Web Engineering
education, e.g., technology evolvement, and to discover ways of
transferring new Web Engineering evolvements into continuing education
in industry.

Another main objective of the event is to act as a kick-off event
for a Memorandum for Web Engineering Curricula. The organizers want to
assemble this Memorandum for Web Engineering Curricula based on the
findings from papers and discussions of the event. In this way,
we hope to inspire and facilitate proposing new educational programs
in Web Engineering.


* Apr 28, 2010: Paper Submission Deadline
* May 21, 2010: Notification of authors
* June 7, 2010: Camera-ready submission


This event will address aspects relevant to curriculum development,
university education, and continuing education in Web Engineering and
will focus on the following topics:

* Development of curricula in the field of Web Engineering &
   Web Science
* Lessons learned from established Web Engineering curricula
* Reference curricula for Web Engineering
* Relevant topics of Web Engineering curricula
* Interdependencies and differences between Web Engineering curricula
   and Software Engineering curricula
* Interdependencies and differences between Web Engineering curricula
   and Web Science curricula
* Web Engineering as a bachelor/master study versus Web Engineering
   master set on top of a bachelor of computer science
* Level of expertise needed from other disciplines (e.g., economical,
   social, and legal aspects)
* Coping with the rapid evolution of Web technologies (degree of
   flexibility of curriculum & courses)
* Reference Web applications as running examples throughout a Web
   Engineering curriculum
* Bringing Web Engineering techniques and methodologies to industry
   (life long learning, vocational training)
* Web as a means for education (distance/blended learning)
* Web Engineering & gender aspects


Submitted papers must comprise substantial discussion with respect to
the goal and the topics of the educators' day and must be well motivated
and presented.

* Length: Papers must not exceed 10 pages.
* Format: Paper submissions are to be formatted according to Springer's
           LNCS guidelines (see instructions on ICWE website).
* Submission: Authors are requested to use the WECU submission site
           at EasyChair for the submission of the PDF version of their
           papers: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wecu2010
           Papers have to include the authors’ name, affiliation and
           contact details.

Papers will be reviewed internationally and selected based on their
originality, significance, correctness, relevance, and clarity of
presentation, as well as with respect to their ability to generate
discussions between the participants of the workshop.

At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the
