****************** Call for participation ******************

              1st International Workshop on Automated
                   Specification and Verification
                       of Web Sites (WWV'05)

                 March 14-15 2005, Valencia, SPAIN



WWV'05 will be held in Valencia, Spain at the Technical University
of Valencia (Universidad Politecnica de Valencia):

     Universidad Politecnica de Valencia
     "Rectorado" Building - ground floor
     Congress Room number 1
     Camino de Vera S/N
     46022 Valencia (Spain)


The increased complexity of Web sites and the explosive growth of
Web-based applications has turned their design and construction into
a challenging problem. Nowadays, many companies have diverted their
Web sites into interactive, completely-automated, Web-based
applications (such as Amazon, on-line banking, or travel agencies)
with a high complexity that requires appropriate specification and
verification techniques and tools. Systematic, formal approaches to
the analysis and verification can address the problems of this
particular domain with automated and reliable tools that also
incorporate semantic aspects.

WWV'05 provides a forum for researchers from the communities of
Rule-based programming, Automated Software Engineering, and
Web-oriented research to facilitate the cross-fertilization and the
advancement of hybrid methods that combine the three areas.

The WWV'05 programme includes works on formal methods and techniques
applied to Web sites, Web services or Web-based applications such as:

  * rule-based approaches to Web site analysis, certification,
       specification, verification, and optimization
  * formal models for describing and reasoning about Web sites
  * model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web sites
  * abstract interpretation and program transformation applied
       to the semantic Web


Registration is web-based via the secure link:

The deadline for early registration is March, 4th.
