The First International Workshop on
Agents, Web Services and Ontologies Merging (AWeSOMe'05)


In conjunction with OnTheMove Federated Conferences (OTM'05)


Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag
Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 31 Oct - 4 Nov 2005

Web services are a rapidly expanding approach to building distributed
software systems across networks such as the Internet. A Web service
is an operation typically addressed via a URI, declaratively described
using widely accepted standards, and accessed via platform-independent
XML-based messages.

Emerging ontologies are being used to construct semantically rich service
descriptions. Techniques for planning, composing, editing, reasoning and
analysing about these descriptions are being investigated and deployed to
resolve semantic interoperability between services within scalable, open

Agents and multi-agent systems can benefit from this combination, and can
be used for web service discovery, use and composition. In addition, web
services and multi-agent systems bear certain similarities, such as a
component-like behaviour, that can help to make their development much

This workshop is intended for researchers working in this topic who want to
interact and exchange ideas with other participants.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

* Agent-based modelling and design techniques to address problems in web
service system development;
* Architectures and infrastructure for distributed agent- or service-
based frameworks;
* Architectures for supporting agents and web services within the
semantic web;
* Infrastructure and architectures for M-services;
* Intelligent matchmaking and service brokering;
* Interoperability of web services;
* Multi-agent techniques to describing, organizing, and discovering web
* Ontology or semantic-based approaches to describing and classifying
services and capabilities;
* Pricing and payment models for Web services;
* Process modeling for service/agent composition, orchestration and
* Scaleable service composition for heterogeneous environments;
* Security support for agents and services, and agent-based approaches
to service security;
* Semantics for service delegation and knowledge aggregation;
* Semantics in Agent Communication Languages;
* Services and the semantic web, including initiatives such as OWL-S
(formerly DAML-S);
* Use of agent-based approaches for web service personalization;
* Use of context and conversations for Web services composition;
* Use of web service infrastructure and tools for building multi-agent
* Web service agreements, legal contracts, and social commitments
between trading partners;
