************** Call For Papers ***************

1st Workshop on Service Web Engineering (SWEng)
@  ICWE 2010
July 5-9, 2010 | Vienna, Austria 

In the last years, a thriving research vision has emerged of the Service
Web, driven by the continuing trend towards service-oriented architectures
(SOA), cloud computing and Web 2.0 APIs, in which Web sites provide
programmatic access to their content and functionality. We envision a future
Web in which billions of services will be seamlessly found, composed and
executed just as how in today’s Web we can find and browse billions of
documents, enabled by the use of semantic technologies for describing richly
the functional and non-functional characteristics of services and enabling
systems to automate the requisite mediation and agreement between services. 
To achieve such a vision, current software engineering practices need to
adapt to the brave new world of Web-based services. Current content and
functionality providers need to consider the specific requirements of future
service provision on the Web, including how to address new challenges such
as the semantic description of services, means for service mediation and
negotiation, as well as models and conditions for composition with other
services. Every Web user will also be enabled to create and offer services
on this Service Web, making lightweight yet robust approaches compulsory.
The goal of this workshop will be to continue a dialogue among researchers,
software engineers and future service providers on the challenges and
solutions to future service engineering on the Service Web. 
Following on from a roadmap for Services in Industry, this workshop will
continue the efforts of STI International to explore the needs and research
challenges faced when preparing for the future Web of Services, and workshop
results will also feed into a report that will be presented to the Future
Internet activity on Services and Architectures

*Workshop format 

The workshop will be split into two parts: presentations of accepted papers
and a panel-led discussion on how to engineer the Service Web. 

*Relevant topics 

Papers are solicited containing research results and ongoing work addressing
the needs of engineering the Web of Services:

- Service description models, including description of RESTful services and
Linked Data endpoints
- Semantics for automated service location and execution
- Mediation between services
- Negotiation with services
- Composition of services, including lightweight and mash-up oriented ad hoc
- Expressing rules and conditions for service use
- Service development methodologies
- Service testing
- Service evaluation
- Scalability of service technologies on the Web


Workshop papers should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS formatting 
guidelines (see instructions for the main conference) and not exceed 12
The workshop submission system will be made available shortly on Easychair. 
The official LNCS post-proceedings for all workshops accepted at ICWE 2010
will be published by Springer. Please note authors of accepted workshop
papers will be asked to prepare a revised version of their paper taking the
discussions at the workshop into account. 

*Important Dates

- Workshop papers submission deadline: April 21, 2010 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
- Notification of authors: May 21, 2010 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
- Camera-ready submission: June 7, 2010 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
