GENERAL OVERVIEW

Composition of services in dynamic environments has received much 
interest for its potential to support Business-to-Business (B2B) 
or Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). One of such dynamic 
environments is the World Wide Web, which makes available a huge 
and rapidly growing number of heterogeneous services. Recent 
efforts to develop ontology languages for the Web and ways of 
describing web services semantically in this environment have 
resulted in a number of prototype systems that can dynamically 
combine services and interact with them.

There are many different types of architectures that have been 
developed around the concept of ôservices" - parties providing 
dynamic functionality to other parties. As the number of services 
increases so does the need for service reuse and service 
'composability' - creation and provision of complex value-added 
services resulting in composite services. Additional infrastructure 
may well need to be defined to support composition in these open 
architectures.

This workshop is composed of two initiatives: the third edition 
of the Workshop on Service Composition and the fifthSemantic Web 
Services Challenge.

This workshop aims to tackle the research problems around methods, 
concepts, models, languages and technology that enable composition 
of services in the context of the WWW. Of particular interest are 
the methodologies that enable automatic or semiautomatic composition 
of services, semantic web service, web services, and e-services. 
The workshop especially welcomes contributions that exploit rich 
semantic descriptions of web services for semi-automatic and 
automatic composition using web intelligence and autonomous agents 
technology.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry 
attendees (e.g. leading modelers, architects, system vendors, 
open-source projects, developers, and end-users) addressing many 
of these issues, and promote and foster a greater understanding 
of how the composition of services in the context of WWW can assist 
business to business and enterprise application integration.


TOPICS

    * requirements on service composition
    * applications of WWW service composition
    * web languages for describing services and their relevance to composition
    * web-based composition languages
    * choreography and orchestration languages
    * workflow models and languages and their relevance to WWW service composition
    * conversation models and languages for composed services
    * applicability of agent technologies to WWW service composition
    * formal models for service composition
    * reasoning about service composition
    * service composition engines and tools
    * dynamic composition methods and algorithms
    * discovery and matchmaking based dynamic composition
    * execution and lifecycle management of composed services
    * monitoring and recovery strategies for composed services
    * security and privacy for composed services
    * policies for composed services
    * mediation in composed services
    * reuse and versioning of services and compositions
    * semantic approaches to composition
    * composition modeling language standards
    * composition with Web services, eServices, Semantic Web Services, GRID services
    * relation between WWW service composition and GRID service composition
    * service composition and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)

These topics indicate the general focus of the workshop, however, 
related contributions are welcome also. Papers for the SWS Challenge 
will describe how they solve the problems in the Challenge scenarios, 
which involve various composition problems, and actually solving them
by calling the web services.


SUBMISSIONS

All submissions should be formatted in IEEE Computer Society style with 
a page limit of 4 + 1 extra, and should be submitted in electronic format 
using the link: http://wi-consortium.org/wiiat07/scripts/ws_submit.php.


All contributions will be peer reviewed by a program committee that will 
incorporate well recognized experts in the area of service composition.

The Workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society 
Press, to be indexed by EI.
