Fifth International Workshop on Programming Technology for the Future WebProWeb21
The ProWeb21 workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss new technology for programming these and future evolutions of the web. We welcome submissions introducing programming technology (i.e., frameworks, libraries, programming languages, program analyses, and development tools) and formalisms for implementing web applications and for maintaining their quality, as well as experience reports about their usage.
Call for Contributions
The ProWeb21 workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss new technology for programming these and future evolutions of the web. We welcome submissions introducing programming technology (i.e., frameworks, libraries, programming languages, program analyses, and development tools) and formalisms for implementing web applications and for maintaining their quality, as well as experience reports about their usage. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of AI to web software development: code models, code prediction, change impact analysis, automated testing
- Web App Quality: static and dynamic program analyses, metrics, development tools, automated testing, contract systems, type systems, migration from legacy architectures, web service APIs, API conformance checking
- Multi-tier (or tierless) programming: new languages and runtimes, tier-splitting compilers, type systems
- Principles and practice of Web UI programming: data binding, reactive programming, virtual DOM
- Data sharing, replication, and consistency: cloud types, CRDTs, eventual consistency, offline storage, peer-to-peer communication
- Security on the new web: security policies, policy enforcement, membranes, vulnerability detection, dynamic patching
- Surveys and case studies using state-of-the-art web technology (e.g., WebAssembly, WebSockets, Web Storage, Service Workers, WebRTC, Angular.js, React and React Native, TypeScript, Proxies, PureScript, ClojureScript, Amber Smalltalk, Scala.js)
- Ideas on and experience reports about: how to reconcile the need for quality with the need for agility on the web, how to master and combine the myriad of tier-specific technologies required to develop a web application
- Position papers on what the future of the web will look like
This year, we are accepting three types of submission:
- Full papers, position papers, and experience reports: 8-page papers describing novel research, which, when accepted, will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
- Demo papers: 4-page illustrating demonstrations of tools and prototypes.
- Presentation abstracts: 2-page extended abstracts.
Presentation abstracts will not be included in the ACM Digital Library but will be included in an informal pre-proceedings on the website. We very much welcome presentation abstracts about work already published elsewhere, or giving an overview of an existing system, and the format is designed not to preclude future publication.
Submissions should be in ACM SIGPLAN two-column format (see https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/). References are not counted in the page limits.
If you have any questions or wonder whether your submission is in scope, please do not hesitate to contact the PC co-chairs.
