* Submission deadline: Mar 12, 2007
* OWL-S: Experiences and Future Developments 2007
* located in conjunction with the 4th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2007)
* June 6th or 7th, 2007
* Innsbruck, Austria

OWL-S has been the focus of a sizable amount of research effort, both 
from the OWL-S Coalition, which codified the ontology, as well as the 
researchers who have used OWL-S in their experimental work. Indeed, work 
on OWL-S can be found both in industry and academia, and papers on or 
using OWL-S are presented in virtually all conferences on the Web, 
Semantic Web and Web services. This workshop aims at providing a place 
where practitioners can exchange their experiences with OWL-S. 
Furthermore, the workshop will provide a forum in which to discuss the 
further evolution of OWL-S in such a way that users and communities with 
specific interests can take charge in proposing changes to the ontology 
that they believe will be helpful.

The topic of discussion will be centered around experiences in using 
OWL-S and the challenges of using OWL-S. Specific attention will be 
given to papers identifying aspects of Web services cannot be modeled 
with OWL-S, with particular regard to the interaction with SAWSDL, and 
on ways to extend the language to address these needs. Papers on 
comparison and cross-fertilization with other approaches such as WSMO 
will also be welcome.

Specifically, topics of interest at the workshop will include but not 
limited to:

 Novel applications of OWL-S
 New algorithms for service discovery and composition
 Models and mechanisms for monitoring execution of OWL-S web services
 New types of grounding
 Uses of OWL-S in novel environments, such as for mobile computing and 
networked appliances
 Relation to other Web services efforts
 Formal aspects of OWL-S and its relationship to Description Logics and 
 Semantic Web Service Mediation

The workshop will be held in Innsbruck in conjunction with the 4th 
European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2007) on the 6th or 7th of June, 2007.

We invite papers that report on completed or current work related to the 
topic of this workshop. Submissions are to be emailed in Postscript or 
Adobe PDF format to Massimo Paolucci (paolucci@docomolab-euro.com), no 
later than March 12, 2007. Papers should be formatted according to the 
official formatting guidelines of the ESWC'06 main conference (LNCS). 
Page limit is set to a maximum of 6 for short papers, and 14 for full 
papers. At least one of the paper authors of the papers is expected to 
participate in the workshop.
