CFP: Adaptation of Web Services (AWS'2010)

[Apologies if you receive this more than once]

******************************************  Call For Papers
*              First International Workshop on the Adaptation  of Web
Services (AWS'2010)        *
*                                August 31st, Toronto, Canada,
2010                                                 *
*                                   within WI/IAT’2010 conference

Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is a computing paradigm that utilizes Web
services as the
basic constructs to support the development of rapid, low-cost and easy
composition of
distributed applications even in heterogeneous environments. With the advent
of SOC,
computing environments have become open, and components are no longer under
a single
organization’s control. Consequently, Web services based applications are
becoming difficult
to adapt. Moreover, with the rapid growth of communication and information
adaptation has gained a significant attention as it becomes a key feature of
Web services
allowing them to operate and evolve in highly dynamic environments.
Adaptation mechanisms
refer to different instantiations including configuration, healing,
optimization, and protection.
The primary objective of this workshop is to investigate ideas that may
contribute to the
adaptation of Web services. Theoretical as well as practical aspects are
welcome. The workshop
organizers welcome participation and contributions from those working or
interested in the
intersection of technologies such as agent technology and autonomic
computing with SOC.

The topics of interest for AWS’2010 include, but are not limited to:
* Adaptation solutions to Web services
* Applications of adaptive Web services
* Optimization of Web services
* Configuration of Web services
* Healing of Web services
* Protection of Web Services
* Self-* Web services
* Agents vs. Web services
* Agents for Web services
* Design and management of self-* Web  services.</font>

Authors should submit their contributions electronically in PDF format by
using the WI-IAT CyberChair system by the
deadline given below. Papers should
be written in English with a maximum of 15 pages. All submitted papers will
be reviewed on the basis of technical
quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. Accepted papers will be
included in the Workshop Proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the
workshop. Depending on the quality of
contributions, we are planning to publish a post-proceedings of the papers
either as a book or a special issue of
an  international journal.
