******** CALL FOR PAPERS ********
1st International Workshop on Web Service Choreography and Orchestration for Business Process Management to be held on September 5, 2005 at the
Third International Conference on Business Process Management Nancy, France, September 2005

This workshop aims to addresses research around methods, concepts, models, languages and technologies for Choreography and Orchestration of Web Services with special focus on Web Service technologies and solutions for Business Process Management. In order to overcome the deficiencies of current BPM technologies, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) have been identified as the basic technical building block for the next generation of web-based business solutions. A Web Service offers a modular functionality, and has a seamless usage interface that hides technical details from a user client. Web Services technologies shall allow automated discovery, composition, contracting, and execution of Web Services, thereby providing a new technology for information systems. The current Web Service technology stack allows exchange of messages between Web Services (SOAP), describing the technical interface for consuming a Web Service (WSDL), and advertising a Web Services in a registry (UDDI). However, these technologies do not explicitly describe all aspects of a Web Service’s functionality; neither do they provide support for the Semantic Web, i.e. descriptions on the meaning of the information to be interchanged between a Client and a Web Service. Consequently, the emerging concept of Semantic Web Services aims at providing more sophisticated support for automated discovery, composition, execution, and monitoring/management of Web Services. The set up of the workshop intersects the research fields of BPM and Web Services. The workshop addresses researchers, professionals and industrial practitioners, aiming at establishing a starting point for closer collaboration and exchange in future work.

PAPER SUBMISSION
For submission, two types of papers are solicited:
1. Full papers (up to 15 pages)
2. Position statements (up to 3 pages)
Full papers should comprise a solid contribution. We emphasize that a larger word count does not necessarily confer any greater likelihood of acceptance; figures that help the reader to quickly grasp the essence of complex material are strongly encouraged. Full papers will receive a peer-review. Position statements are intended to present very early or planned future work that is regarded as relevant to the workshop. Position statements are limited to 2 pages; position statements will not receive a peer-review. All accepted full papers and all position papers of attendees will be published in the proceedings of the workshop. All submissions should be formatted in Springer's LNCS style, and sent in PDF format by e-mail to michael.stollberg@deri.org
