CFP: Workshop on Service Composition & SWS Challenge (SerComp & SWS Challenge 2007)


International Workshop on Service Composition & SWS Challenge
(SerComp & SWS Challenge '07)

at the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
(WI 2007)

November 2-5, 2007, Silicon Valley, USA


Composition of services in dynamic environments has received much
interest for its potential to support Business-to-Business (B2B)
or Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). One of such dynamic
environments is the World Wide Web, which makes available a huge
and rapidly growing number of heterogeneous services. Recent
efforts to develop ontology languages for the Web and ways of
describing web services semantically in this environment have
resulted in a number of prototype systems that can dynamically
combine services and interact with them.

There are many different types of architectures that have been
developed around the concept of �services" - parties providing
dynamic functionality to other parties. As the number of services
increases so does the need for service reuse and service
'composability' - creation and provision of complex value-added
services resulting in composite services. Additional infrastructure
may well need to be defined to support composition in these open

This workshop is composed of two initiatives: the third edition
of the Workshop on Service Composition and the fifthSemantic Web
Services Challenge.

This workshop aims to tackle the research problems around methods,
concepts, models, languages and technology that enable composition
of services in the context of the WWW. Of particular interest are
the methodologies that enable automatic or semiautomatic composition
of services, semantic web service, web services, and e-services.
The workshop especially welcomes contributions that exploit rich
semantic descriptions of web services for semi-automatic and
automatic composition using web intelligence and autonomous agents

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry
attendees (e.g. leading modelers, architects, system vendors,
open-source projects, developers, and end-users) addressing many
of these issues, and promote and foster a greater understanding
of how the composition of services in the context of WWW can assist
business to business and enterprise application integration.


    * requirements on service composition
    * applications of WWW service composition
    * web languages for describing services and their relevance to composition
    * web-based composition languages
    * choreography and orchestration languages
    * workflow models and languages and their relevance to WWW service composition
    * conversation models and languages for composed services
    * applicability of agent technologies to WWW service composition
    * formal models for service composition
    * reasoning about service composition
    * service composition engines and tools
    * dynamic composition methods and algorithms
    * discovery and matchmaking based dynamic composition
    * execution and lifecycle management of composed services
    * monitoring and recovery strategies for composed services
    * security and privacy for composed services
    * policies for composed services
    * mediation in composed services
    * reuse and versioning of services and compositions
    * semantic approaches to composition
    * composition modeling language standards
    * composition with Web services, eServices, Semantic Web Services, GRID services
    * relation between WWW service composition and GRID service composition
    * service composition and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)

These topics indicate the general focus of the workshop, however,
related contributions are welcome also. Papers for the SWS Challenge
will describe how they solve the problems in the Challenge scenarios,
which involve various composition problems, and actually solving them
by calling the web services.


All submissions should be formatted in IEEE Computer Society style with
a page limit of 4 + 1 extra, and should be submitted in electronic format
using the link:

All contributions will be peer reviewed by a program committee that will
incorporate well recognized experts in the area of service composition.

The Workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
Press, to be indexed by EI.
