Abstract

The workshop focusses on the issue of what support should
provided for developing Web-aware applications.

Topics include: see http://www.cs.vu.nl/~eliens/WWW5/workshop.html

We like the workshop to result in
 * the definition of requirements for high-level APIs
and frameworks for Web programming
 * the characterization of suitable components
for Web-aware applications,
 * an overview of existing APIs for the Web

Position papers

Position papers from 3-5 (HTML-2.0) pages addressing one of
the topics mentioned are welcomed.
Position papers proposing an API must include a
brief description of the API, its intended 
application domain and preferably 
an indication of practical experience.
