======================= CALL FOR PAPERS ===================================



                                   SMR 2006

                        1st International Workshop on

            Semantic Matchmaking and Resource Retrieval:

                        Issues and Perspectives



                        Co-located with VLDB 2006

            The Convention and Exhibition Center (COEX)

                        Seoul, Korea - September 11, 2006 




Matchmaking is basically the process of discovering, based on a given
request, promising partners for some kind of purpose. It is a process common
to several scenarios in the Internet era, spanning from e-commerce to
web-services, to grid computing, to human resource management, to actual
dating services, to Peer-to-Peer computing. Both requests and partner
descriptions are usually, but not always, given some kind of structure.


Obviously, main issues emerge when the search is not limited to identity
matches but, as in real life, when the objective is finding partners
suitable at least to some extent, or -- when a single partner cannot fulfill
the request

-- find a pool of cooperating partners able to accomplish it.

As this process may lead to various possible matches, the notion of ranking
becomes central, to provide a list of potential partners ordered according
to some criteria.


--- TOPICS ---


Aims of the workshop are:

- Gather researchers from different communities and from both academia and
industry to debate and find common ground on matchmaking issues.

- Present open and emerging issues, and possible solutions to matchmaking
problems, which we summarize in the next section.

- Propose shared and acceptable methods to evaluate effectiveness of
approaches to matchmaking.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


            - approximate matchmaking

            - hybrid resource retrieval

            - web services discovery and composition

            - hybrid resource retrieval

            - approximate reasoning for resource retrieval

            - non-monotonic reasoning for resource retrieval

            - resource annotation for matchmaking

            - Efficient storage of semantic-based annotations for
matchmaking and retrieval

            - Semantic matchmaking and retrieval applications for:

                        * P2P and B2C E-marketplaces

                        * Semantic Grid

                        * Mobile commerce

                        * Workflow composition

                        * Business processes

                        * Dating systems

                        * Competencies management

                        * Multimedia






Authors are invited to submit original research contributions (not published
or under consideration in other journals or conferences) on the topics of
the workshop. All submissions must be in English. Submissions must clearly
identify the nature of the paper as research, experience, or position. All
submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by three
members of the Program Committee.


It is planned (without confirmation yet) to publish post workshop
proceedings in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series. Informal proceedings will be handed out at the workshop site.


Authors should submit their papers in PDF format through the conference
management system that can be accessed at http://www.easychair.org/SMR06/.


Submissions must not exceed 15 pages for full length papers and 6 pages for
research-in-progress proposals and must be formatted using the camera-ready
templates of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Author instructions can be found at
