*Mashups'07: First **Highlightr* <http://highlightr.org/>* Workshop on Web
APIs and Services Mashups*
*ICSOC 2007* <http://www.icsoc.org/>*, Vienna, Austria, September 17, 2007*

Mashups'07 is sponsored by

Services computing and Web 2.0 computing are converging into a programmable
Web today. The interaction and integration of services computing and
Web 2.0technologies, however, exposes various complexities that have
to be faced.
This *Highlightr* <http://highlightr.org/> workshop looks specifically at
Web APIs and Services Mashups  end-user-oriented compositions of
Web-accessible services and content.
Main challenges include:

   - Programming models (languages, frameworks, platforms) for the
   composition of Web-accessible services and data of all kinds and
   architectural styles (SOAP, REST, RSS, Atom, and Atom Publishing Protocol
   (APP)) and development of integrated user-interfaces.
   - Quality of mashups, including reliability and security, and
   management approaches to mashups.
   - Understanding social and economic factors in the creation,
   acceptance, and sustainability of services mashups, including
   software-as-services markets and services marketplaces, digital communities,
   pricing and contracting models.

This workshop aims to bring together several relevant communities:
application (mashup) developers, mashup technology developers and experts,
end-users, social networking and economics researchers, and the broader
services computing community.
In the spirit of mashups this workshop is a
*Highlightr*<http://highlightr.org/>event  using the
*Highlightr* <http://highlightr.org/> site
as a sharable, commentable, taggable, diggable, twittable, and mashable way
to keep online notes and highlights during the workshop. We encourage and
expect workshop participants to explore and use Highlightr to capture,
share, discuss, and mashup workshop contributions and outcomes.

*Call for Papers*
We are seeking two kinds of paper contributions for peer-review:

   - short papers (not to exceed 8 pages in Springer LNCS style format)
   describing mashups examples and positions on particular challenges or
   experiences relevant to the scope of the workshop, and
   - long papers (not to exceed 15 pages in the Springer LNCS style
   format) describing research and novel solutions to relevant problems in more

Topics of interest include:

   - Languages, frameworks, and (runtime) platforms for the design,
   implementation, testing and maintenance of Web APIs and services
   mashups, including dynamic languages and frameworks such as Ruby/RoR,
   Javascript/Ajax, PHP, and others.
   - Mashups examples and experience (design, architecture,
   implementation, usability and user-experience), in particular of those that
   use emerging tools such as IBM's QEDWiki, Google Web Toolkit, Google Mashup
   Editor, Dapper.net, OpenKappow, and Yahoo! Pipes, as well as using
   service marketplaces like StrikeIron.com and ProgrammableWeb.com.
   - Quality of services mashups: reliability, security, and other
   non-functional aspects.
   - Analysis of and experience with services mashups (creation,
   deployment, and usage) from social and economical perspectives; services
   markets and marketplaces, digital communities, pricing and contracting

Papers will be accepted for full presentation (*30 min.* slot) or short
presentation (*20 min.* slot) at the workshop, or for demonstration as a
All selected papers will be published in 'conventional' workshop proceedings
(details to be confirmed), and will also be advertised through the *
