Journal of Applied Logic
Special Issue on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems

Published as volume 10, issue 1 of the JAL, 2012.

This special issue of the Journal of Applied Logic is related to the topics of the workshop WWV'10: Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems, which took place in Vienna on July 30-31, 2010. Both participants of the workshop and other authors are invited to submit contributions.
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.
We solicit original papers on logic-based methods and techniques applied to Web sites, Web services or Web-based applications, such as:

We expect original articles (typically 15-25 pages; submission of larger papers will be evaluated depending on editorial constraints) that present high-quality contributions that have not been previously published and that must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.
Submissions must comply with JAL's author guidelines. They must be written in English and should be prepared using the Elsevier LaTeX package.
Submissions are encouraged via the EasyChair submission system:
