Service Discovery on the WWW Workshop (sdisco'06)

http://www.aswc2006.org/

THEME:

Services in open and dynamic environments have recently received 
significant interest.
They can be used to support Business-to-Business (B2B), Enterprise 
Application Integration (EAI),
and collaborations within or between Virtual Organizations. Successful 
example of such dynamic
environments includes the WWW - a dynamic environment with a huge 
heterogeneous collection
of services.

There are many different types of architectures that have been developed 
around
the concept of a ôservice" - parties providing dynamic functionality to 
other parties.
As the number of services increases so does the need for automatization 
in service discovery
- discovery of new functionalities and behaviors.

This workshop aims to tackle the research problems around methods, 
concepts, models,
languages and technology that enables discovery of services in the 
context of the WWW.
Of particular interest are the methodologies that enable automatic or 
semi-automatic
discovery of services, semantic web service, web services, and e-services.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry attendees 
addressing
many of these issues, and promote and foster a greater understanding of 
how the
discovery of services can assist business to business and enterprise 
application integration.


TOPICS:

The following indicates the general focus of the workshop. However, related
contributions are welcome as well.

- WWW Discovery and matchmaking of service, e-services, web services, 
semantic web services.
- Discovery and matchmaking in P2P and Grid environments.
