Scope and Topics
Web services (WSs) are nowadays emerging as a major technology for deploying automated interactions between distributed and heterogeneous applications. Various standards back this deployment including WSDL (Web Services Definition Language), UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration), and SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol). These standards respectively support the definition of WSs, their advertisement to the community of potential users, and finally their binding for invocation purposes.

Despite the tremendous potential of WSs to address complex problems, they still lack some capabilities that would propel them a higher level of acceptance and make them compete with traditional integration middleware like CORBA and DCOM. For instance, WSs adoption continues to be slowed down due to various recurrent issues such as the complexity of WSs discovery. To address these issues, solutions could be built upon different advanced techniques like recommender systems, case-based reasoning, fuzzy logic, business process mining, complex data matching, etc.

By organizing this workshop, we aim at shedding the light on the latest techniques that could be coupled to Web services. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

  • Recommendation systems and Web services;
  • Web services discovery and composition using recommendation;
  • Semantic matching for Web services during recommendation;
  • Semantic Web paradigm for WS description, discovery, and composition;
  • Coordination techniques for WS transactions, agreement, etc.;
  • Network techniques for WS security, performance evaluation and quality of service;
  • Multi-agent techniques for WS description, mediation, and discovery;
  • Business process modeling for WS composition, orchestration, and coordination;
  • Business process mining for WS discovery, composition, and  coordination;
  • Complex data matching for WS discovery and composition.
