Workshop WWV 2009 logo
5th Int'l Workshop on Automated Specification and
Verification of Web Systems

Castle of Hagenberg, Austria
July 17, 2009
Part of the RISC Summer 2009

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.

The WWV series 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.


We solicit original papers on formal methods and techniques applied to Web sites, Web services or Web-based applications, such as:

Registration via the RISC Summer 2009 registration page.

Early registration deadline: June 26.


The workshop will take place at the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC), which is an institute of the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. It is located in the Castle of Hagenberg, a romantic, medieval castle amidst the lovely, hilly landscape of the Mühlviertel 20 km north east of Linz, the provincial capital of Upper Austria, located halfway between Salzburg and Vienna.

More information about RISC can be found on the institute's web page and also on the folder.

Travel information, maps, and transport schedule can be found on the RISC portal.
