The Evolution of Web Engineering

ICWE 2005 The Fifth International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE2005) brought together the international community of experts in Web Engineering research, practice and education. Besides a lot of interesting talks, presentations, discussions, and demos, the community started the process of establishing an international society on Web Engineering.
Relaunch of webengineering.org In May 2005, the IT-Management and Web Engineering research group at the University of Karlsruhe redesigned the WebEngineering.org Community Site to become completely distributed, Web Service based and semantically enabled. The new Site was developed on the basis of the free WebComposition Service Linking System (WSLS).
Journal of Web Engineering (JWE) In 2002 the first international Journal related to Web Engineering was published by Rinton Press, NJ, USA. The Journal of Web Engineering (JWE) provides a forum for distribution of information in all areas of Web Engineering. Original articles, survey articles, reviews, tutorials, perspectives, and correspondence are published. Content addresses significant issues and problems, and potential solutions, in developing Web-based applications.
2003 - The Twelth International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2003) Web Engineering became an area of the Refereed Paper Track at the WWW2003 conference - demonstrating the emerging need for a discipline on development, operation, and evolution of Web applications.
International Conference on Web Engineering Series In 2001 - the ICWE'01 held in Càceres, Spain was the start in the series of successful conferences. The conferences aim at bringing together the international community of experts in Web Engineering research, practice and education, to foster the exchange of experience and discussion about the present status and future trends of this emerging and rapidly growing field. Check the events section for further details about current and previous ICWE conferences.
2002 - The Eleventh International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2002) For the first time Web Engineering became part of the main program. The Web Engineering Track was a successful track of the Alternate Paper Tracks co-chaired by Yogesh Deshpande, Martin Gaedke, San Murugesan and Daniel Schwabe. The WWW2002 proceedings are available online. Papers of the Web Engineering Track are marked with the session codes WE-1 to WE-4.
2001 - WebEngineering.org Redesigned In 2001 the IT-Management and Web Engineering research group at the University of Karlsruhe redesigned the WebEngineering.org Community Site. The new Site was developed using the Web-Based Component Technology WCML (WebComposition Markup Language) and the Evolution-oriented Service-Based Web-Application Architecture (Evolutionbus). The new system powered by the WCML3-Evolutionbus Runtime Engine supported XML, XPath, XLinks, XSL/T, WebDAV, and Scripting.
2001 - International Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technology In 2001 Daniel Schwabe organized the first international Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technology. The local organization was done by Oscar Pastor and his group. The goal of this "by invitation only" workshop was smart: Everyone had to solve the same common problem-scenario - the development of a conference review system. Check out the site to find out more about the approaches.
1998-2001 Ongoing Progress In the years from 1997 to 2001 several other events were organized with focus on Web Engineering. These events include series of Workshops at the World Wide Web Conferences and the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), and Minitracks at the Hawaii'n International Conference on System Science.
WebEngineering.org registered In 1997 the WebEngineering Homepage was published and hosted at the Telecooperation Office at the University of Karlsruhe for students interested in this research. The site evolved due to several requests from researchers, students and others in the following months. In 1998 these activities and the demand from the still young but growing community lead to the registration of WebEngineering.org
1998 - First Workshop on Web Engineering At the 7th World Wide Web Conference in Brisbane, Australia in 1998 San Murugesan organized the first workshop on Web Engineering.
The Early Beginnings First Papers about Web Engineering related problems appear at the World Wide Web Conferences in 1995/1996. At the fifth World Wide Web Conference 1996 in Paris, France, Bebo White organized a tutorial about Web Document Engineering. Gellersen, Wicke, and Gaedke talked about the Web Engineering life-cycle at the sixth World Wide Web Conference in Santa Clara, CA, USA.
