Fourth International Workshop SMR2

Service Matchmaking and Resource Retrieval in the Semantic Web

@ 9th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2010)

November 8, 2010; Shanghai, China

Workshop Web page: http://www.dfki.de/~klusch/smr2-10/



 Aims & Scope: 

One central challenge of service coordination in the Semantic Web is how to
best relate requests for services with the services that are available. This
functionality is usually provided by matchmaking capabilities (which may
themselves be deployed as services, brokers or middle agents) that select
the services that are closest to a requested service on the basis of a
declarative characterization of the capabilities of both service requested
and services provided. 

More generally, resource retrieval extends the notion of service matchmaking
to the process of discovering any kind of resource (services, data,
information, knowledge, even persons and organizations) for given settings,
participating entities, and purposes. It is at the core of several scenarios
in the Semantic Web area, spanning from Web services, Grid and cloud
computing, and Peer-to-Peer computing, to applications such as e-commerce,
human resource management, and social networking applications such as dating

The primary objective of this workshop is to bring together academic and
industry researchers and industry practitioners who tackle semantic service
matchmaking and discovery from various points of view. In particular, we
intend to build bridges to the software engineering and model-driven
development communities in order to share requirements, technologies, and
experiences that might be helpful in advancing the state of the art in
semantic service matchmaking and resource retrieval. 


Going to Practice: The 4th International Semantic Service Selection (S3)

The SMR2 workshop also integrates the fourth edition of the open
international contest on semantic service selection (S3) which is in
collaboration with the SEALS SWS tool evaluation campaign. The S3 contest
provides the means and a forum for evaluating the retrieval performance of
Semantic Web service matchmakers in terms of recall, precision, F1, response
time etc., over given test collections based on the prominent semantic
service formats such as OWL-S, WSML and the standard SA-WSDL. 

Publication: The proceedings of SMR2 will be available as a CEUR volume

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 

• Semantic resource and service matchmaking and brokering 

• Semantic retrieval of resources and services in P2P, Grid networks and
Cloud Computing 

• Model-driven semantic service engineering and matchmaking 

• Privacy-preserving and trusted semantic service discovery 

• Composition planning of semantic services and workflows 

• Formal description and handling of semantic services, queries, and

• Prototypes and tools for semantic services engineering, discovery and

• Negotiation of semantic services and resources

• Interleaving of discovery, composition, and negotiation of semantic
services and resources 

• Practical applications of semantic services 

• Evaluation of implemented semantic service retrieval tools 

• Middleware solutions for semantic service search and composition 



Contributions to the workshop can be made as technical papers, addressing
different issues of service / resource matching and retrieval. The papers
written in English should be not longer than 16 pages using the LNCS Style:

All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and should be submitted
through the workshop submission site at:
