The ICWE 2014 Demos and Posters tracks provide an interactive forum for researchers and practitioners alike working in any area of Web Engineering to showcase demonstrators and present research results. ICWE provides a unique environment to discuss novel ideas, concepts and technologies, and to easily and informally get in touch with experts from all the fields of Web Engineering, allowing the authors of selected demos and posters to obtain valuable feedback and exchange their experiences.


ICWE 2014 sees significant value in demonstrations and aims to provide visibility and a discussion forum for state-of-the-art technical solutions, implementation experiences and recent research activities. The Demos track offers an exciting and highly interactive way of presenting and discussing demonstrators of promising research. It is an excellent way of showcasing prototypes and the applicability of your research. Submissions about open source software and commercial solutions are also welcome. We seek demos in all areas of Web Engineering related to the ICWE 2014 tracks. Note that demonstrations should be brief so that they can be shown repeatedly. We particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact.

New this year: It is mandatory that Demo submissions clearly describe in the Appendix what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. Ideally, submissions should include a URL that points to a preliminary version of the demo (e.g., screenshots, videos, or a running system).


The ICWE 2014 Posters track invites researchers, practitioners, PhD students and others working in any area of Web Engineering, that do not have a demonstration, to submit a poster of their research. Like Demos, Poster contributions may address any topic that fits within the ICWE 2014 topics of interest.

Submission Instructions

Demo and poster submissions should describe the innovative aspects of the work they present, highlighting the contributions and major differences to the authors’ previous as well as related work. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the Demos and Posters Program Committee, who will judge the originality, significance, quality, and clarity of each submission. Authors of accepted demos and posters will present their work in a special session embedded in the main conference program.

New this year: We strongly encourage authors to submit a demo video and/or poster draft along with their submissions highlighting the most interesting aspects of their work. Authors that intend to give a demonstration should submit to the Demos rather than the Posters track. Note that authors of accepted Demos submissions will also be given the opportunity to display a poster.

Submission details

  • Length: Papers must not be longer than 4 (four) pages including abstract and references. Demo submission must append an Appendix that clearly describes how the authors plan the demo. This Appendix will not be part of the 4-pages camera-ready version.
  • Format: Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines.
  • Submission place: Authors can use the ICWE 2014 Demo and Poster submission site at EASYCHAIR for the submission of their manuscripts.

Publication of Accepted Submissions

Camera-ready versions of accepted Demos and Posters submissions will be published in the ICWE 2014 main conference proceedings. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the conference and present the work during the demos and posters sessions.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as an LNCS volume. Along with the full papers, they will also include Demos and Posters papers (both 4 pages). The final version of each accepted paper must strictly adhere to the LNCS guidelines and must include a printable file of the camera-ready version as well as all required source files. No changes to the LNCS formatting rules are permitted. Authors of accepted papers must also download and sign a copyright form that will be made available in due time.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: March 10, 2014 March 17, 2014 (HARD deadline) 
  • Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2014
  • Camera-ready versions due: April 11, 2014 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
