3rd International Workshop on Web Service Composition and Adaptation
(WSCA-2009)

http://lsdis.cs.uga.edu/WSCA2009/

July 6th, 2009, Los Angeles, California, USA
Affiliated with the IEEE International Conference on Web Services, 2009

Recent  advances  in  networks,  information  and  computation  grids,  and
Web
languages  and  protocols   have  enabled  development   of,  and  led   to
the
proliferation of,  distributed and  autonomously developed  Web services.
These
include WSDL/SOAP based services well suited for enterprise applications as
well
as lighter-weight WebAPIs and RESTful services widely used in Web
applications.
Correspondingly,  the  construction  and  deployment  of  mashups  and
composite
services that combine and  reuse  independently developed component
services is
an  important capability  in the  emerging Web-based  computing
infrastructure.
Given  that business  and application  needs continually  change, and
component
services  may  also independently  change,  a number  of  challenges in
provide
dynamic, flexible and adaptable  approaches to such integration  and
composition
of services remains an important challenge.

Against this background, this workshop, to be held in conjunction with 2009
IEEE
International Conference on Web Services, invites manuscripts addressing
various
aspects related to  (a) discovery  or selection of component services  that
will
be integrated,  (b) use of semantics  to ease data mediation and
integration  of
component  services, (c)  developing approaches  to handling  service
failures,
changes  in  service  functionalities,   and  changes  to  quality   of
service
parameters, and  (d) understanding  external events,  which are  the
sources  of
volatility in service  compositions.  Insightful examples  of and
approaches  to
service  composition  and  adaptation  in  a  variety  of  applications
such as
scientific  and  engineering  workflows,  mobile  computing,  sensor
networks,
consumer and social networking, are  welcomed as well.  Additionally, we
invite
discussions of toolkits that support composition and adaptation objectives.




*Specific topics of interest include*

- Dynamic service discovery and selection
- Semantic annotation and mediation of services
- Ontology-based  approaches  to  service  composition  and mashups
- Domain specific languages for mashups
- Formal methods in service  composition
- Verification of service compositions
- Reuse in service composition:  service compatibility and substitution
- Adaptation and Evolution of services, including modeling of events that
impact
  service compositions and mashups, and  techniques to respond to these
events
- Case studies, and applications (e.g., in e-science, e-Business,
e-Government,
  mobile computing, social computing, sensor networks)


*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 limited
to 8
pages and  following the  formatting of  the IEEE  Computer Science
Proceedings
template     (http://www.computer.org/cspress+instruct.htm).   Papers
can   be
submitted electronically  via EasyChair  submission management  system:
http://confhub.com/conf.php?id=114. At least one author is required to
attend the
workshop and present the paper.

*Workshop proceedings*

(held  in
conjunction with ICWS/SERVICES-2009) will be published by IEEE Computer
Society.
