At the WWW2015 conference in Florence, Italy.


Thousands of APIs exist and their number is growing tremendously, while use cases become increasingly complex. In contrast to the human-oriented part of the Web, Web APIs are designed to be used by machines. This makes issues surrounding their design and integration significantly different from those of the traditional Web. However, this also enables the provisioning of new added-value automated solutions on the Web.

This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners by providing an open discussion forum around the design and use of the programmable Web. It is the principal venue for discussing latests findings and research and development results around the issues, practices, and best principles surrounding Web API design and use.
