3rd International Workshop on Web Service Composition and Adaptation

Website: http://lsdis.cs.uga.edu/WSCA2009

July 6th, 2009, Los Angeles, California, USA
Affiliated with the IEEE International Conference on Web Services, 2009

Recent  advances  in  networks,  information  and  computation  grids,  and
languages  and  protocols   have  enabled  development   of,  and  led   to
proliferation of,  distributed and  autonomously developed  Web services.
include WSDL/SOAP based services well suited for enterprise applications as
as lighter-weight WebAPIs and RESTful services widely used in Web
Correspondingly,  the  construction  and  deployment  of  mashups  and
services that combine and  reuse  independently developed component
services is
an  important capability  in the  emerging Web-based  computing
Given  that business  and application  needs continually  change, and
services  may  also independently  change,  a number  of  challenges in
dynamic, flexible and adaptable  approaches to such integration  and
of services remains an important challenge.

Against this background, this workshop, to be held in conjunction with 2009
International Conference on Web Services, invites manuscripts addressing
aspects related to  (a) discovery  or selection of component services  that
be integrated,  (b) use of semantics  to ease data mediation and
integration  of
component  services, (c)  developing approaches  to handling  service
changes  in  service  functionalities,   and  changes  to  quality   of
parameters, and  (d) understanding  external events,  which are  the
sources  of
volatility in service  compositions.  Insightful examples  of and
approaches  to
service  composition  and  adaptation  in  a  variety  of  applications
such as
scientific  and  engineering  workflows,  mobile  computing,  sensor
consumer and social networking, are  welcomed as well.  Additionally, we
discussions of toolkits that support composition and adaptation objectives.

*Specific topics of interest include*

- Dynamic service discovery and selection
- Semantic annotation and mediation of services
- Ontology-based  approaches  to  service  composition  and mashups
- Domain specific languages for mashups
- Formal methods in service  composition
- Verification of service compositions
- Reuse in service composition:  service compatibility and substitution
- Adaptation and Evolution of services, including modeling of events that
  service compositions and mashups, and  techniques to respond to these
- Case studies, and applications (e.g., in e-science, e-Business,
  mobile computing, social computing, sensor networks)
