[CfP] WS-REST 2014 – Fifth International Workshop on Web APIs and RESTful Design

Thomas Steiner-3
Dear list members,

According to its description, this list's is "used by the Web Services
Description Working Group for technical discussions". It is my great
pleasure to invite you to submit to our 2014 workshop on Web APIs
and RESTful Design.

In the name of the organizers,

WS-REST 2014 – Fifth International Workshop on Web APIs and RESTful Design
WWW2014 – 7 April 2014 – Seoul, Korea

Who?    Web researchers and engineers working on API servers and clients
What?   A full-day workshop on current and future challenges for Web
APIs and their interaction
Why?    Web APIs are more important than ever, yet many unsolved
problems demand our attention
When?   Full-day workshop on 7 April 2014 – paper submissions before 7
January (hard deadline)
Where?  At the WWW2014 conference in Seoul, Korea

Thousands of APIs exist and their number is growing tremendously,
while use cases become increasingly complex. In contrast to the
human-oriented part of the Web, Web APIs are designed to be used by
machines. This makes issues surrounding their design and integration
significantly different from those of the traditional Web. However,
this also enables the provisioning of new added-value automated
solutions on the Web.
The discussion surrounding Web APIs and RESTful services is often held
outside of research communities. This workshop brings together
researchers and practitioners by providing an open discussion forum
around the design and use of the programmable Web. It is the principal
venue for discussing latests findings and research and development
results around the issues, practices, and best principles surrounding
Web APIs design and their use.

We especially welcome research and engineering work in the following areas:
- development of intelligent and generic Web API clients
- dynamic combination of and interactions between Web APIs
- novel hypermedia-driven solutions
- tackling the tremendous growth and heterogeneity of APIs
- analysis and understanding of the social and economic factors
surrounding the development, use, and adoption of Web APIs and mashups
- novel solutions for the automated discovery and profiling of Web APIs
- novel technologies for facilitating the development of mashups and
services for the Web of Things
- lessons learnt from the deployment, maintenance and evolution of Web
APIs and mashups

In addition to the topics above, this workshop is also open to:
- applications of the REST architectural style to novel domains
- design patterns and anti-patterns for Web APIs
- automated Web API composition
- inverted REST (REST for push events)
- integration of pub/sub with REST
- REST-compliant transaction models
- frameworks for Web API implementation and consumption
- modeling Web APIs
- resource design and granularity
- evolution, versioning and extension of Web APIs
- REST-protocols beyond HTTP

We welcome full papers (8 pages) and vision papers (4 pages) in the
WS-REST ACM template,
available at http://ws-rest.org/2014/cfp.

Paper submission:  Jan 7, 2014 through EasyChair
Notification:      Feb 4, 2014
