 First International Workshop on Mediation in Semantic Web Services
                             (MEDIATE 2005)

in conjunction with the 
3rd International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2005)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, December 12th 2005


Important Dates:
2005-09-02 Submission of papers
2005-10-07 Notification of acceptance
2005-10-21 Camera-ready versions due
2005-12-12 Workshop (confirmed)

Description of the Workshop Topic:
The usage of computer systems is widely characterized by decentralized
design and autonomous evolution, i.e. if we look at system components from a
global perspective, they are often developed and modified without alignment
in the design stage. Also, components follow individual paths of evolution
during their life-cycles. It can be observed that this is a major cause for
interoperability problems, contributing to the brittleness of systems
integration efforts. If we want to increase the degree of automation in
general, it seems important to provide software components that can help
overcome occurring interoperability conflicts and this in an automated
fashion. This functionality is known as mediation and the respective
components are called mediators. Mediation can take place on a multiplicity
of levels, e.g. on data, ontologies, processes, protocols, or goals. To a
great extent, it will depend on the availability of sophisticated,
industry-strength mediation support whether the promise of Semantic Web
services can become reality.

In this workshop we want to advance the theoretical and practical knowledge
about the design and implementation of mediators in the Semantic Web and
Semantic Web services.

Focus of the Workshop:
Possible topics include, but are not limited to
-   Conceptual Aspects of Mediation
-   Data Mediation
-   Ontology Mediation
-   Process Mediation
-   Protocol Mediation
-   Goal Mediation
-   Architecture and Implementation of Effective Mediation Services
-   Evolution, Learning, and Adaptability of Mediators
-   Versioning Issues
-   Grounding of Semantic Web Services

Submission Format:
Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English,
following the LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Papers must not exceed 16 pages. Shorter papers, presenting preliminary
results, are welcome. Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two
members of the program committee. Please send your submissions in PDF format

For accepted submissions, at least one author must register for the workshop
in order for the paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled in
the workshop program. Postproceedings in the form of a book will be
