Fourth International Workshop on Programming Technology for the Future WebProWeb20
Because the safety and well-being of conference participants is our priority, we decided to not hold the conference on March 23–26, in Porto, Portugal, and therefore the presentations scheduled for March 23–26, in Porto, Portugal, will not take place. Journal publications are available online and their authors will be invited to present at 2021 in Cambridge, UK. The 2020 Companion Proceedings (ACM Digital Library) will be available online around May 2020. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.

Accepted Papers & Talks
Call for Contributions
The ProWeb20 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) 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:
- Quality on the new web: 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: frameworks for isomorphic applications, new languages and runtimes, tier splitting compilers, type systems, …
- 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, Meteor, WebRTC, Angular.js, React and React Native, TypeScript, Proxies, 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 two types of submission:
- Full papers and experience reports: 6-page papers describing novel research, which, when accepted, will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
- Presentation abstracts: 1-2 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. Page limits do not include bibliographies.
If you have any questions, or wonder whether your submission is in scope, please do not hesitate to contact the PC co-chairs.
