Since its inception in 1999, the Web Site Evolution (WSE) series of events have provided a forum for researchers and practitioners to present original work on subjects related to the disciplined evolution of large-scale Web sites.

We cordially invite you to participate in the 8th IEEE International Symposium on Web Site Evolution (WSE 2006), to be held September 23-24, 2006, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Web site evolution is a rich research area. There are enough similarities between large-scale Web sites and traditional legacy systems that many of the proven tools and techniques can be redeployed in this new application area. However, there are also enough differences that the problem requires innovative solutions to the many new problems unique to the discipline.

As a two-day symposium WSE 2006 aims to bring together members of both the Software Maintenance & Evolution and Web Engineering communities. The goal is to provide researchers and practitioners working in the areas of Web application design, development, maintenance and evolution with an environment to discuss results and exchange experiences about models, methods, techniques and technologies related to the above-mentioned areas.

Topics of interest of WSE 2006 include, but are not restricted to, the following:
- Web design models and methodologies, at various levels of abstraction.
- Tools and techniques for the analysis, reverse engineering and reengineering of legacy Web applications.
- Environments, tools and technologies for the development and prototyping of Web applications.
- Empirical studies on Web applications.
- Web applications documentation.
- Quality evaluation of Web applications
- Costs/benefits estimation and evaluation.

WSE 2006 is co-located with the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM 2006). ICSM is the community's flagship event focused on the modernization of existing systems. The technical program of WSE 2006 will include invited talks, paper presentations, and discussion sessions.
