The Fourth International Workshop on Lightweight Composition on the Web will take place on 23 July 2012 in Berlin, Germany.

The word 'mashup' is used for web applications that integrate data, services and/or presentation of other (data) sources or applications. Some applications focus on integrating RSS feeds, others on integrating representational state transfer services or simple object access protocol services, while other focus on Atom feeds and integrating user interfaces.

Mashups, and resulting tools, foster innovation by helping integration at the user interface level (most mashups do integrate presentation content, not just data). They aim at simplicity more than completeness of features, and allow fairly sophisticated development tasks in a web browser.

Research on mashups, in both industrial and academic contexts, has increased in recent years, but the field is still far from a common understanding of research-related problems, approaches and results.

The event will highlight the discussion of key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications, and trends in the area of web mashups and lightweight composition.For further information, please visit: http://sites.google.com/site/composableweb2012
