International Society for Web Engineering


Steering Committee

Activity lead: Geert-Jan Houben and Martin Gaedke


The purpose of ISWE is the promotion of science and research in the entire field of Web Engineering. The Steering Committee works towards this goal by endorsing, managing, supporting, and organizing Web Engineering related professional and scientific events, such as conferences, conventions, seminars, talks and related exhibitions. The Steering Committee's main responsibility is ISWE’s major conference: the International Confernece on Web Engineering (ICWE). The ICWE conference series aims to promote research and scientific exchange related to engineering content for the web, and to bring together practitioners, researchers, and those who want to learn more about Web Engineering.


The current mission of the Steering Committee is to ensure the continuation of the International Conference on Web Engineering and to control its quality.
