ProWeb 2022: 6th International Workshop on Programming Technology for the
Future Web
Co-located with the ‹Programming› conference
March 21st - 25th


Full-fledged web applications have become ubiquitous on desktop and mobile
devices alike. Whereas “responsive” web applications already offered a more
desktop-like experience, there is an increasing demand for “rich” web
applications (RIAs) that offer collaborative and even off-line
functionality: Google Docs being the prototypical example. Long gone are
the days that web servers merely had to answer incoming HTTP requests with
a block of static HTML. Today’s servers react to a continuous stream of
events coming from JavaScript applications that have been pushed to
clients. As a result, application logic and data are increasingly
distributed and traditional dichotomies such as “client vs. server” and
“offline vs. online” are fading.

** Call for Contributions **

The ProWeb22 workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share
and discuss new technology for programming these and future evolutions of
the web. We welcome submissions introducing programming technology (i.e.,
frameworks, libraries, programming languages, program analyses, and
development tools) and formalisms for implementing web applications and for
maintaining their quality, as well as experience reports about their usage.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

* Applications of AI to web software development: code models, code
prediction, change impact analysis, automated testing
* Web App Quality: static and dynamic program analyses, metrics,
development tools, automated testing, contract systems, type systems,
migration from legacy architectures, web service APIs, API conformance
* Designing for and hosting novel languages on the web: compilation to
JavaScript, WebAssembly
* Multi-tier (or tierless) programming: new languages and runtimes,
tier-splitting compilers, type systems
* Principles and practice of Web UI programming: data binding, reactive
programming, virtual DOM
* Data sharing, replication, and consistency: cloud types, CRDTs, eventual
consistency, offline storage, peer-to-peer communication
* Security on the new web: security policies, policy enforcement,
membranes, vulnerability detection, dynamic patching
* Surveys and case studies using state-of-the-art web technology (e.g.,
WebAssembly, WebSockets, Web Storage, Service Workers, WebRTC, Angular.js,
React and React Native, TypeScript, Proxies, PureScript, ClojureScript,
Amber Smalltalk, Scala.js)
* Ideas on and experience reports about: how to reconcile the need for
quality with the need for agility on the web, how to master and combine the
myriad of tier-specific technologies required to develop a web application
* Position papers on what the future of the web will look like

This year, we are accepting three types of submission:

* **Full papers, position papers, and experience reports**: 6-page papers
describing novel research, which, when accepted, will be included in the
ACM Digital Library.
* **Demo papers**: 4-page papers illustrating demonstrations of tools and
* **Presentation abstracts**: 2-page extended abstracts.

Presentation abstracts will not be included in the ACM Digital Library but
will be included in an informal pre-proceedings on the website. We very
much welcome presentation abstracts about work already published elsewhere,
or giving an overview of an existing system, and the format is designed not
to preclude future publication.

Submissions should be in ACM SIGPLAN two-column format (see
https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/). References are not counted in
the page limits.

If you have any questions or wonder whether your submission is in scope,
please do not hesitate to contact the organizers.
