1st International Workshop on Web Service Composition and Adaptation


Affiliated with 5th IEEE International Conference on Web Services 2007
(http://www.icws.org), July 9-13, 2007, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Recent advances in networks, information and computation grids, and
WWW have resulted in the proliferation of a multitude of physically
distributed and autonomously developed Web services. The W3C Web
Services Architecture defines ``Web service as a software system
designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over
a network. It has an interface described in a machine processible
format (specifically WSDL) and other systems can interact with it in a
manner prescribed by its description using SOAP messages, typically
conveyed using HTTP with an XML serialization in conjunction with
other Web-related standards''.  Correspondingly, the construction and
deployment of composite services by combining and reusing
independently developed component services is an important capability
in the emerging Web-based computing infrastructure.  Processes offer
key IT capabilities in businesses as well as in scientific research,
and key enabler of broad variety of applications including
e-Enterprise, e-Business, e-Government, and e-Science.  Since many
processes need to change to adjust with respect to changing computing
and business environments, adaptability of processes is also a key

The workshop will be held in conjunction with IEEE International
Conference on Web Services. ICWS is a ``prime international forum for
both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest
fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Web
services, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of
Web services.'' The workshop will complement this theme of the
conference and aims to conduct a focused discussion on one of the
main topics of interest in Web service research: service composition.
The discussions will not only bring out the current state of advances
in Web service composition but also provide valuable insights for
future research avenues and for work-in progress in the domain of Web
service composition.

Specific topics of interest include:

- Model-based service composition
- Static and dynamic service composition
- Reuse in service composition: compatibility and substitutability
- Adaptation and Evolution of services and processes
- Formal methods in service composition
- Verification of service composition
- Fault tolerant service composition
- Optimization in service composition and service/process adaptation
- Ontology-based approaches to service composition
- Secure service composition
- Elicitation and modeling of functional and non-functional requirements in
service composition
- Comparing and ranking of alternative solutions in service composition
- Software infrastructure for service composition
- Case studies, and applications (e.g., in e-science and scientific

Submission guidelines:

Authors are asked to submit original, unpublished research papers that are
not being considered for publication in any other forum. Papers must be
to double-column 8 pages and follow the formatting of the IEEE CS
template (
Papers can be submitted electronically via EasyChair submission management
system (http://www.easychair.org/WSCA2007). At least one author is required
attend the workshop and present the paper. A single volume of proceedings
encompassing all the workshops (held in conjunction with ICWS-2007) will be
published by the IEEE Computer Society.
