There is a lot of interest today in virtualization, with many vendors
offering virtual servers to

virtual applications and even virtual network devices. A major benefit
expected from

virtualization is dynamic scalability of Web applications based on traffic
or on clients’ demand.

Web application scalability is critical to the success of many enterprises
currently involved in

doing business on the Web and in providing information that may vary
drastically from one time

to another. Maintaining sufficient resources just to meet peak requirements
can be costly.

Virtualization-based paradigms like cloud computing provide a powerful model
that allows to

simply and securely connect users to information resources on-demand and
anywhere. Modern

Web applications are increasingly hosted in a cloud-computing
infrastructure, able to

communicate and interact with external mobile devices. Such applications
should dynamically

scale in response to changes in the workload to guarantee service level
agreements. This trend

brought about a number of new modeling, design and implementation issues for

applications, including

- Models to approximate non-functional properties of virtualized,
multi-tiered Web

applications, including performance, security and privacy.

- "Cloud-aware" techniques for designing and implementing virtualized Web

- Toolkits and framework for cloud-based Web application monitoring and

- Techniques for advanced information and data handling targeted at
virtualized storage

- Models to represent and link data in virtualized environments

Solving these key issues requires both first-class theoretical research and
careful experimental

evaluation to show that model predictions are faithful to observed
application behavior. Also,

results need to be validated in the context of hybrid provisioning on
multiple, heterogeneous

virtualized platforms and cloud stacks. Finally, Web-based information
systems rely on models

and tools for representing, integrating and linking data or resources from
heterogeneous sources

or platforms. There is a need to investigate the impact of virtualization on
these models.

Springer World Wide Web Journal solicits papers presenting original research
on Large-scale

Web applications in Virtualized Environments

The goal of this special issue is to bring together current development,
ideas, and practical

results of Web application development and deployment, as it is being
transformed by

virtualization. Manuscripts are solicited to address a wide range of topics
in Web information

management in the cloud era, including - but not limited to - to the
following topics:

- Web application development on virtualized infrastructures and platform

- Web information handling on virtualized storage

- Web applications on Cloud infrastructure

- Web applications and SLA

- Data and information quality on virtualized systems

- Deep Web and the Cloud

- Information integration on heterogeneous cloud systems

- Knowledge-based systems

- Virtualized RDF data indexing and storage

- Recommender systems on the cloud

- Virtualized Systems security, privacy, and trust

- Using Social Network Analysis on the cloud

- Data management and mining in social Web

- Filtering techniques (ranking, collaborative filtering, topic detection
and tracking, etc) for social Web

- Web advertising and community analysis

- Web-based collaboration

- Web service and information management

- Virtual communities on the cloud

- Design and analysis of social or collaborative applications

- Cloud and service computing

- Cloud and mobile services
