Workshop on Applying Adaptive Hypermedia Techniques to Service Oriented 
Environments

focusing on Pervasive Adaptive Web Services and Context Aware Computing

                                 in conjunction with
Third International Conference on Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive 
Web-Based Systems
                           (AH'2004, http://www.ah2004.org)
                      August 23, 2004 Eindhoven (The Netherlands)

                      Workshop Website: http://phaedrus.cs.tcd.ie

Adaptive Hypermedia Systems have typically acted as stand-alone 
applications fulfilling a user's informational needs, e.g. personalised 
content retrieval and delivery adaptive content and media management. 
Such Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web techniques are beginning to 
prove effective in many information based application areas, including 
eLearning, Information Retrieval, e-Commerce etc.

Services, Pervasive Computing Services, Utility Services. Such 
environments offer sets of 'potentially collaborative' services capable 
of supporting user applications and context awareness. In particular, 
research in the Semantic Web community is focusing on Semantic Web 
representation, discovery, web service orchestration and choreography. 
Whether using an Ontological approach or other knowledge driven 
approaches, adaptive web services are now the subject of intense 
research. In the case of ubiquitous or pervasive computing environments, 
the features and services available to the user are offered through the 
many devices in their physical environment creating the possibility of 
multi-modal interactions. The adaptivity required by such services is 
obvious but not always well architected.

This workshop will explore Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web 
techniques in the composition of and support for service oriented 
adaptivity. Areas which will be addressed include emergent service 
oriented environments such as Adaptive (Semantic) Web Services and 
Pervasive (Computing) Services as well as more traditional service 
oriented environments such as adaptive eCommerce, eGovernment and 
eLearning services. A key focus of the workshop will be to explore the 
common problems in adaptive composition and delivery for adaptive 
information as well as adaptive services. Through this workshop the 
connections between personalisation and (web) service paradigms will be 
investigated. This workshop also aims to identify and examine the 
strengths of AH techniques in supporting, and being the subject of, the 
semantic/ontology-driven composition of application services.

Workshop Topics
===============
Submissions are invited on original, and previously unpublished research 
in all aspects of applying adaptive techniques to service oriented 
environments, including, but not limited to:

* applying AH techniques for the personalisation of web service 
discovery, selection or composition;
* service architectures and interfaces for adaptive services;
* semantic representations of services, (information) domains, and 
contextual information;
* knowledge sharing and information model interoperability;
* reasoning techniques for adaptive planning, decision support or 
service choreography;
* semantic interoperability within the adaptive system;
* exploring the correspondence between hypermedia and composite services;
* the relationship between service oriented environments and semantic web;
* use of ontologies in service oriented environments;
* leveraging multi-modal devices in pervasive computing environments 
through AH techniques
