1st Workshop on Service Web Engineering (SWEng)

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

@  ICWE 2010, Vienna, Austria                 July 5-9, 2010


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

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 (services.future-internet.eu).

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:

ˇ        Service description models, including description of RESTful
services and Linked Data endpoints

ˇ        Semantics for automated service location and execution

ˇ        Mediation between services

ˇ        Negotiation with services

ˇ        Composition of services, including lightweight and mash-up
oriented ad hoc compositions

ˇ        Expressing rules and conditions for service use

ˇ        Service development methodologies

ˇ        Service testing

ˇ        Service evaluation

ˇ        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

Papers may be submitted

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.
