Web Information Systems Quality (WISQ 2005) Workshop
-----------------------------------------------------
Workshop URL: http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/wisq05 

To be held in conjunction with the Sixth International Conference on Web 
Information Systems Engineering (WISE 2005)

20-22 November 2005, New York City, New York, USA


Key Dates 
----------
Workshop paper submission: 15 July 2005 

Notification of acceptance: 22 August 2005 

Camera Ready Papers Due: 12 September 2005 



Aims and Scope
---------------
The number of web-based applications has grown phenomenally. This in turn has 
triggered specific research and development focusing on Web information systems
(WIS), i.e., information systems (IS) that heavily rely on using (a part
of) the Web as a resource. Also recently new paradigms have evolved such as 
web services. The heavy utilization of web resources and the openness of
WIS implies that users of WIS tend to be much less well known at system
development time than users of traditional, i.e., non-Web IS are. The way 
functionality can be accessed by users, i.e., quality of applications becomes 
more important as well. 

>From a users' perspective quality can be defined as the suitability for 
intended or practical use. However, this notion of suitability is subjective 
and cannot be applied easily at a system under study. A number of quality 
aspects have been defined, already for non-WIS, for simplifying quality 
related investigations of information systems. Specific expectations of users 
regarding WIS justify a fresh look on the quality of WIS. New technologies such
as Web services seem to suggest that WIS quality should be considered
from a different angle or with different concepts, methods and tools than 
information systems in general. 

WISQ 2005 aims to continue the series of workshops held in conjunction with 
WISE since 2003 with a  focus on the quality aspects of web applications, 
systems and services - namely WQW 2003 and WIS 2004. This workshop will provide
a forum discussion and dissemination of research from a holistic and 
comprehensive perspective on quality of web information systems including web 
services. This workshop aims to promote all the areas related to the quality of
the web information systems. The topics for which submissions are solicited 
include (but are not limited to):

* WIS quality taxonomies 
* WIS/Web Services quality metrics & measurement 
* Modelling & specifying WIS/Web Service quality profiles 
* Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for Web Services/WIS
* Methods for obtaining the required quality profile for a WIS under development 
* Methods for obtaining a WIS with given quality profile 
* Methods for changing the quality profile of a deployed WIS 
* Quality and Pricing in WIS/Web Services
* Cost, Penalties and Quality in WIS/Web Services 
* Estimation and prediction of Quality of Service (QoS) Levels in WIS/Web Services
* Impact of technology on WIS-quality 
* Impact of software process on WIS-quality 
* Testing WIS
* WIS/Web Services-quality vs. software quality 
* WIS-quality vs. infrastructure quality 
* Trust and Reputation in WIS/Web Services 
* Agent-based WIS/web service architecture as a means of providing QoS attributes 
* Integration of context-awareness in to WIS/web service quality specifications
* QoS driven selection and composition of Web Services
* QoE (Quality of User Experience) and QoBiz (Quality of Business)


Publication of Proceedings
---------------------------
The proceedings of the workshop will be published by Springer Verlag as 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).


Paper Submission 
-----------------
Authors should send PDF versions of their paper by email to: 
Shonali Krishnaswamy (Shonali.Krishnaswamy@infotech.monash.edu.au) by the
deadline specified. 

Hardcopy submission is discouraged. 

Paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages in Springer format. Details of the 
Springer format are available at (http://www.springer.de/lncs). 

Submitted papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by two or more members of 
the independent program committee, based on relevance, originality, technical 
soundness, and clarity. Accepted papers will be presented during the workshop.
