In recent years the Web has undergone a spectacular evolution, both in its technological aspects as well as in its social aspect. As a result, new terms and entities such as Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web, among others, have arisen. In this new scenario, a variety of new types of applications - wikis, blogs, mashups, folksonomies, social networks and so on - are developed. In all of them, the quality is become a discriminative factor and therefore a key aspect for their success. For that reason, it is necessary to carefully asses, define, and use the several dimensions that describe the New Generation Web quality.

Bearing all this in mind, we want to promote all areas related to the New Generation Web quality of web applications with the first edition of this workshop, by giving to researchers the opportunity of sharing their works and providing a forum to discuss the various aspects of this context. Moreover, we hope to identify possible future lines during the workshop related to the discussed topics.

  • Quality in content (wikis, blogs, etc.)
