* Workshop at ICWE 2010

Web Engineering is a specific domain in which Model-Driven Engineering
(MDE) can be successfully applied. Existing model-based Web engineering
approaches already provide excellent methods and tools for the design and
development of most kinds of Web applications. They address different
concerns using separate models (navigation, presentation, workflows, etc.)
and come with model compilers that produce most of the application’s Web
pages and logic based on these models. However, most of these Web
Engineering proposals do not fully exploit all the potential benefits of
MDE, such as complete platform independence, meta-modelling, and model

In addition, there is an increasing trend towards the incorporation of
emerging technologies like the Rich Internet Applications, Mashups,
Semantic Web and (Semantic) Web Rule Languages, which aim at fostering
application interoperability, especially within the scope of the Web 2.0
and is related technologies and richer applications. These current trends
involve new challenges both to the modelling and model-driven development
domains. However, the effective integration of all these new techniques
with the already existing model-based Web Engineering approaches is still

Accordingly, we invite original, high-quality submissions for the 2010
edition of the Model-Driven Web Engineering Workshop. The aim of this
workshop is to provide a forum to discuss the state-of-the-art in
Model-Driven Web Engineering (MDWE), where researcher and practitioners
will meet to outline a roadmap that addresses the key challenges in this


Both academia and industry are invited to submit papers about any of the
following topics of interest:

* Model Driven Architecture (MDA) in the context of Web application
* Other model-driven approaches (e.g., Software Factories) for the
development of Web systems
* Advantages of the use of MDA and Software Factories in the Web domain
* Potential problems or limitations of MDSD in the Web Engineering domain
* Metamodels for model-driven approaches used for Web application and RIAs
* Domain specific modelling languages for Web Engineering
* UML profiles for Web applications and RIAs
* Patterns in the design and implementation of Web applications
* Web systems software architecture modelling in MDSD approaches
* Model-driven code generation for Web applications and RIAs
* Model-to-model and model-to-code transformations for Web application and
RIAs development
* Model transformation languages
* Interoperability models for Web applications and resources (Web pages,
Web services, portlets, distributed components, etc.)
* Tools and frameworks for supporting model-driven Web development
* Model-driven quality analysis of Web applications and RIAs
* Maintenance, evolution and management of model-driven generated Web 
* Model-driven approaches to design distributions aspects in Web systems
* Use of Semantic Web-based approaches in model-driven Web design
* Empirical studies of modeling Web systems and model-driven Web 
* Industrial experience on model-driven Web development


Submissions should be not more than 15 pages long
in LNCS format. They have to include the authors' name, affiliation and
contact details. Submission details can be found at the workshop website.

At least one author of accepted papers should
register for the conference and participate in the workshop.

The workshop proceedings will be made available online to the participants
at least one week before the workshop. Similarly to previous editions of
the MDWE workshop we will publish the proceedings in CEUR (free online
publications with ISSN). In the tradition of the workshop, a journal
publication of a selection of the best papers is planned.


Paper submission April 21, 2010
Notification of acceptance May 21, 2010
Camera-ready version due June 7, 2010
Workshop will take place at ICWE 2010 (July 5 or July 6)
