Aim and Scope

To harness the power of web services and to realize their promise of universal interoperability and integration, the functionalities of multiple web services must be combined to create web processes that allow representing complex interactions among organizations and their workflows. Semantic technologies are key enablers that offer a flexible, adaptable and maintainable means to make this vision come true. The synergies between the two technologies called Semantic web services (SWS) is poised to allow the semi-automatic/automatic annotation, advertisement, discovery, selection, composition and execution of inter-organizational business logic, and enable the development of a global common platform where organizations, individuals and the like communicate among each other to carry out various commercial activities and to provide value-added services. Though significant research in SWS has been reported during the pre- and post-ISWC eras, a number of challenges still remain in realizing real-world SWS applications.

This workshop will focus on the 'In Practice' aspect of Semantic Web Services, and bring together researchers and practitioners working on all related disciplines, to share their experiences, exchange new ideas as well as to identify key emerging topics and define future directions.

Research papers are invited on all aspects of Semantic Web Services in Practice, including but not limited to the following:

    * Semantic Service Discovery
    * Semantic Service Composition
    * Semantic Service Provisioning
    * SWS Advertising, Matchmaking, Selection, Mediation and Brokering
    * Ontology Standards, Design and Reuse related to SWS
    * Demos, Case Studies and Real-world Applications
    * Industrial Ecosystems for SWS
    * Security and Privacy in SWS
    * Cost models for SWS
    * Issues in User Adoption
    * Applications to E-business, E-science, E-governance, Mobile computing, Sensor networks, Web 2.0
    * Synergies with Cloud computing, Grid computing

Work-in-progress, industry applications/experiences and position papers are also welcome.
