The Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems (WWV,
http://users.dsic.upv.es/grupos/elp/wwv/) is a yearly workshop that aims at
providing an interdisciplinary forum to facilitate the cross-fertilization 
and the advancement of hybrid methods that exploit concepts and tools drawn 
from Rule-based programming, Software engineering, Formal methods and 
Web-oriented research.

Nowadays, many companies and institutions have diverted their Web sites into
interactive, completely-automated, Web-based applications for, e.g., e-business,
e-learning, e-government and e-health. The increased complexity and the explosive
growth of Web systems has made their design and implementation a challenging task.
Systematic, formal approaches to their specification and verification can permit
to address the problems of this specific domain by means of automated and
effective techniques and tools.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
- Rule-based approaches to Web system analysis, certification, specification,
  verification, and optimization.
- Languages and models for programming and designing Web systems.
- Formal methods for describing and reasoning about Web systems.
- Model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web systems.
- Analysis and verification of linked data.
- Abstract interpretation and program transformation applied to the semantic Web.
- Intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications authoring.
- Middleware and frameworks for composition and orchestration of Web services.
- Web quality and Web metrics.
- Web usability and accessibility.
- Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications.


Participation to WWV is open. The workshop is intended for, but not limited to,
researchers from the communities of Rule-based programming, Software engineering,
Formal methods and Web-oriented research.


Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot be under
review for publication elsewhere. Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation 
by at least three reviewers, chosen by the Program Committee. 
Contributions should be submitted through the EasyChair online submission system
in PDF format, and should be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS-style format and
should not exceed 15 pages (typeset 11 points).
Submission is a firm commitment that at least one of the authors will attend the
workshop, if the paper is accepted.


Accepted papers will be included in the pre-proceedings, which will be made
available in electronic form through the WWV web site. 
After the workshop, authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare, by
incorporating insights gathered during the event, a final version of their paper
to be published in the post-proceedings.

We plan to publish the workshop post-proceedings as a volume of the EPTCS series.

The previous 7 editions of WWV attracted high quality papers that were published
in ENTCS (WWV'05, WWV'07, WWV'08), IEEE (WWV'06) and EPTCS (WWV'11,WWV'12). 
After WWV'09, a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation on the topics
of the WWV has been organized. Similarly, a special issue of the Journal of
Applied Logic has been organized after WWV'10, and a special issue of the Journal
of Logic and Algebraic Programming is being organized after WWV'11 and WWV'12.
