This volume is a collection of papers presented at the four Workshops IWWOST, AHCW, WQ, and DIWE, held in conjunction with the 4th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE'04). Web Engineering is a new emergent discipline, which focuses on the definition of methodologies, techniques and tools for the design, development and evaluation of complex Web applications. Novel results in this area have been presented and discussed during the ICWE'04 Workshops, with special attention on advanced application domains. This volume presents a selection of the best contributions, providing an updated view on the Web Engineering researches and applications.
