Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The World Wide Web has a tremendous impact on people's daily lives. Within a few years, we have learned to use the web for a multitude of different tasks, from simply obtaining information to handling complex workflows. As a result, the World Wide Web and its underlying technologies have become ubiquitous and interwoven in different aspects of almost all everyday tasks. Subsequently, the development of progressive, dynamic, and interactive web applications is becoming increasingly important.

In the development of advanced web applications, it is not only of the utmost importance to use the latest available high technology, but it is also necessary to invent and create new approaches, as well as set future trends. It is not enough to just create fresh theories; they must be put into practice and experimentally tested so that the results can be verified by other researchers in the field.

Even today, many systems are developed mostly ad hoc and unsystematically, and the quality of these systems is not systematically ensured. Although there are well-known methods from software engineering for the design of information systems and distributed systems, these cannot be easily transferred to the development of web applications.

This Special Issue aims to publish any kind of contribution dealing with the development and innovative use of advanced web technologies, as well as the analysis, design, production, evaluation and teaching of novel web-based systems, applications, sites, and technologies. We also welcome high-quality case studies describing successful experiences with advanced web applications, as well as research papers proposing novel approaches and techniques for solving traditional and novel problems arising from their practical use.

The topics covered include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • capabilities of state-of-the-art large-scale web systems concerning scalability and resilience;
  • cloud-native and collaborative web software development practices, web architectures, and design patterns;
  • cloud deployment technologies, methods, and models;
  • data processing in Internet-scale systems;
  • web solutions for integration, usability, accessibility, microdata, and the Semantic Web;
  • HTML5 and specialized APIs;
  • HTTP2 and HTTPS;
  • web application security;
  • advanced CSS;
  • JavaScript and Typescript programming;
  • single-page web applications (SPAs) and progressive web applications (PWA);
  • WebAssembly code;
  • web components; learning management systems and electronic learning on the web.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
