					Intelligent Web Services meet Social Computing (IWEBSS)

				    AAAI Spring Symposium 2012, March 26-28, Stanford, California

				AAAI Website: http://www.aaai.org/Symposia/Spring/sss12symposia.php

October 7, 2011: Submission of Abstracts 
November 9, 2011: Notification of acceptance/rejection 
January 10, 2012: Submission of papers

Development of web services faces significant challenges concerning quality of design, development costs, endorsement of services by the community, integration and interoperability of services from different domains and effective sharing of services among users and developers. This spring symposium will bring together two lines of research whose combination can help in dealing with these issues, namely intelligent web services and social computing research. Social Computing is a promising approach that can help to understand user and community behaviour and related computational challenges around Web services development.

*Topics of Interest*
The topics of the symposium include the following:
-  Social and technical requirements for collaborative web service development
-  Platforms and user interfaces for crowdsourcing web service development, and verification
-  Techniques for contextualized reviewing and rating of web services
-  Methods to incentivize, boost, and influence community participation throughout the lifecycle of web services
-  Methods to define and mashup service descriptions with Linked Data vocabularies
-  Systems and techniques for context- and social-based recommendation of web services
-  Methods for collaborative authoring of semantic annotations (for example RDFa, SAWSDL)
- Argumentation frameworks and norms for reaching consensus on service implementation, description, and integration
-  Trust in collaborative web service construction
-  Mining, monitoring and analysis of behaviour and activities of web service online communities (such as ProgrammableWeb, and Seekda)
-  Analysis of web service usage patterns and associated social and technical parameters
-  Extraction of web service descriptions from tags
-  Case studies for use of social computing to construct and manage web services

Abstracts of no more than 400 words must be submitted in PDF to EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aaaisymposia2012) by October 7, 2012. Authors of accepted abstracts will need to submit either a short (3 page) or long (6 page) paper versions by January 10, 2012. 

The symposium will include presentations of short and long papers, research proposals, demonstrations, invited speakers, panel and open discussions. Researchers working in areas of semantic web, web services, linked data, intelligent agents, social networks, social computing or web science will be encouraged to participate in the symposium.
