The authors must clearly indicate the track to which the paper is being submitted. Research Papers: The conference is soliciting original research papers on all aspects of web information systems engineering. Submitted papers will be judged according to their scientific merits and evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. See below for submission details.

Industrial and Application Papers: WISE’07 encourages submissions covering the application of Web information systems engineering in practice, including papers describing innovative implementations, novel applications, and major improvements to the state-of-practice. The papers submitted to this track can range from a few page extended abstract to a full paper. The track will also include a small number of invited visionary papers.
