         First International Joint Workshop SMR2 2007 on
Service Matchmaking and Resource Retrieval in the Semantic Web

Co-located with the 6th International Semantic Web Conference ISWC 2007
              November 11, 2007 Busan, South Korea

One challenge of service coordination in the semantic Web is concerned
with how to best connect the ultimate service requester with the
ultimate service provider? Like intermediaries in the physical economy,
a special kind of software agents, so called middle-agents, is supposed
to solve this problem based on the declarative characterization of the
capabilities of both service requester and provider agents. In fact, the
standard Web service interaction life cycle corresponds to the classical
service matchmaking process.
More generally, resource retrieval extends the notion of service
matchmaking to the process of discovering any kind of resource
(services, data, information, knowledge) for given settings,
participating entities, and purposes. It is at the core of several
scenarios in the Semantic Web area, spanning from web-services, grid
computing, and Peer-to-Peer computing, to applications such as
e-commerce, human resource management, or social networks applications
such as mating and dating services.
The SMR2 workshop provides a forum for promoting, presenting, and
discussing the latest scientific advances on semantic Web service and
resource retrieval; and Establishing and fostering cross-disciplinary
relations between relevant parties in research and/or business for the
purpose of joint work on solutions to relevant problems in the domain.
