                              CALL FOR PAPERS

            The 8th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC),
       Software, Services, Processes and Cloud Computing Track
                May 29 - June 2, 2011, Heraklion, Greece

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference is to bring
together researchers and practitioners dealing with different
aspects of semantic technologies. ESWC 2011 builds on the
success of the former European Semantic Web Conference series
(http://www.eswc2010.org/), and seeks to extend its focus by
collaborating with other communities and research areas,
in which Web semantics play an important role, within and
outside ICT.

The software industry in Europe and beyond is preparing for
the Future Internet of Services, which is commonly is
considered to become a multi-billion market within the next years.
Despite the substantial innovations and research results on service
engineering throughout the last decade, several challenges need to
be solved in order to make the vision of the Internet of Services (IoS)
become a reality. To address this, we are particularly interested in
scientific contributions for the profitable employment of semantic
technologies for
(a) the modeling, handling, and management of business-relevant
aspects of services and service-based systems such as SLAs,
pricing models, security and trust;
(b) novel techniques for automating the complete service provision
and consumption life cycle in an efficient and large-scale manner,
esp. around light-weight RESTful services in addition to the traditional
WS-* stack as well as the integration with Web-of-Data technologies;
(c) innovative techniques for easy, light-weight, and efficient
service-based application development such as Web 2.0 inspired
service mash-up techniques, scalable service composition and the
integration with business process and workflow technologies, or
service customization and on-device support.
We also welcome contributions on other techniques or insights
that can help to overcome the burden for potential service providers
to publish their offers as services.

This track invites high-quality submissions related, but not limited to
the following topics:
   - Semantic description models for business-relevant aspects of
     services and processes
   - Semantics for service governance and quality-of-service
   - Service Science: business needs, challenges, and case studies
     on the adoption of services and semantically enabled service
     engineering techniques in industry
   - Profitable use of semantics in the service engineering process
   - 'Mash-up' approaches and/or the combination of data, services,
     and processes
   - Semantic resource-oriented architectures using services and processes
   - Scalable and efficient automation of the service life cycle
     (matchmaking, discovery, composition, ranking, selection,
     federation, data & process mediation, etc.)
   - Extraction of semantic service descriptions from un-/semi-structured

The proceedings of the conference will be published in Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and reviewing
will be electronic. Papers must not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length
and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS authors:

Papers must be submitted as PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format)
and will not be accepted in any other format. Papers that exceed 15 pages
or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk being rejected automatically
without a review. The contributions to the Software, Services and Cloud
Computing track hould be submitted through the track submission site at:
