::::::::::::::::::::::::: CALL FOR PAPERS:::::::::::::::::::::::::

We are pleased to announce that submissions to practi-O-web 2017 - The
International Workshop on the Practice of the Open Web are open.
Please refer to the http://sites.google.com/dis.un
iroma1.it/practi-o-web2017/home web site for major information.
The workshop will be held on June 5, 2017 in Rome in conjunction with the
17th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2017).
Please refer to the conference main page (http://icwe2017.webengineering.org)
for information about registration.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners,
stakeholders and users of the Open Web, meant as
a huge and easily accessible source of data, information and services. The
focus of the workshop will be on practical engineering
approaches (i) to design and develop open data and services on the Web
(i.e., the
Web seen as an output media of an organization's information system), on
the one
side, and (ii) to design and develop open source intelligence and retrieval
on the other side (i.e., the Web seen as input media of an organization's
system). We seek for papers describing practical engineering approaches,
studies, lessons learned, etc.

Important Dates
Paper submission due date: March 31, 2017
Decision notification: May 2, 2017
Camera-Ready Copy due date: May 12, 2017

Topics of interest

The main goal of the workshop is to give to the research and practicing
