The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Web Site Evolution
September 23-24, 2006; Philadelphia, PA
Co-located with the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance

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

Following the success of the 2005 Symposium, WSE 2006 aims to bring together members of Web engineering and software maintenance & evolution communities for an expanded two-day gathering. WSE 2006 will 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.

WSE 2006 will be held in Philadelphia, PA on September 23 and 24 and 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.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following aspects of Web based application design, development, maintenance and evolution:
Models, methodologies, and architectures
Tools, environments, and technologies
Design and implementation
Costs and benefits estimation
Testing and quality evaluation
