Abstract : This book contains the proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies (WEBIST 2017), which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). The conference was held in cooperation with the Association Tunisienne pour l'Intelligence Artificielle (ATIA) and the Open Group. This conference was also technically sponsored by the European Research Center for Information System (ERCIS). The purpose of this Conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in technological advances and business applications of web-based information systems. WEBIST featured five main topic areas, covering different aspects of Web Information Systems, including “Internet Technology”, “Web Interfaces”, “Service based Information Systems”, “Web Intelligence” and “Mobile Information Systems”. WEBIST 2017 received 77 paper submissions from 30 countries, of which 27% were accepted as full papers. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified independent researchers in the WEBIST topic areas. The high quality of the WEBIST 2017 programme was enhanced by three keynote lectures, delivered by experts in their fields, including: Marco Gori (Universita degli Studi di Siena, Italy), Geert-Jan Houben (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands), and Christoph Rosenkranz (University of Cologne, Germany). The meeting was also complemented with an invited talk delivered by Roy R. Cecil (IBM Portugal, Portugal). In addition, the 2nd International Special Session on Advanced practices in Model-Driven Web Engineering – APMDWE, chaired by Julián Alberto García García, Laura Caría Borgoñon and Francisco José Domínguez Mayo, was held together with WEBIST 2017. All presented papers will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus, as well as being made available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Besides the proceedings edited by SCITEPRESS, a post-conference book will be compiled with extended versions of the conference´s best papers and published by Springer in a Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) Series book. Furthermore, a short list of presented papers at the conference venue will be selected for publication of extended and revised versions in a special issue of Springer’s Computing Journal. The best contributions to the conference and the best student submissions were distinguished with awards based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as assessed by session chairs at the conference venue. Building an interesting and successful program for the conference required the dedicated effort of many people. Firstly, we greatly thank the authors, whose research and development efforts are recorded here. Secondly, we thank the members of the program committee and additional reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. We also wish to include here a word of appreciation for the excellent organization provided by the conference secretariat, from INSTICC, which has smoothly and efficiently prepared the most appropriate environment for a productive meeting and scientific networking. Last but not least, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and deliver their talks.
