  Special Issue on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems

This special issue is related to the topics of the workshop WWV'09: 
Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems, which took place 
in Hagenberg, Austria, on July 17, 2009. 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 symbolic methods and techniques applied to Web sites, 
Web services or Web-based applications, such as:

    * Rule-based approaches to Web systems analysis, certification, specification, 
      verification, and optimization
    * Algebraic methods for verification and certification of Web systems
    * Formal models for describing and reasoning about Web systems
    * Model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web systems
    * Abstract interpretation and program transformation applied to the semantic Web
    * Intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications authoring
    * Web quality and Web metrics
    * Web usability and accessibility
    * Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications
    * ...

Submissions describing applications of algebraic methods and techniques are especially
