Call for Demos and Posters

The ICWE 2020 Demos and Posters track will promote 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.

We aim to cover all topics in the different tracks of the conference, namely:

  • Web application modeling and engineering
  • Web mining, big data analytics and knowledge extraction 
  • Semantic Web and Linked Open Data
  • Web crowdsourcing, social and human computation
  • Mobile Web application engineering
  • Web of Things
  • Web Assembly
  • Web composition and mashups
  • Web programming languages, tools and frameworks
  • Microservice and Web API engineering
  • Web user interface design
  • Redecentralization of the Web
  • Web-based learning
  • Quality aspects of Web applications


The Demo track will cover emerging areas of Web Engineering gathering researchers to debate, propose, and elaborate the foundations and software solutions to different problems, by presenting running research and projects on these topics. We seek demos in all areas of Web Engineering related to the ICWE 2020 tracks. Note that demonstrations should be brief so that they can be shown repeatedly. We particularly encourage demos with which attendees can interact.


The 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. We solicit submission of original research, as well as experience and vision papers from both researchers and practitioners. Like Demos, Poster contributions may address any topic that fits within the ICWE 2020 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.

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.

Format: Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers ( Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer.

Submission system: Authors need to use the ICWE 2020 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 2020 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).

Together with the PDF, also a zipped archive with a self-contained “Web-first” version of the paper in HTML is allowed to be submitted. If accepted, the authors will need to provide Word/Latex sources following the standard Springer LNCS format for the camera read. See more instructions here.

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.
