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

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

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

November 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 architectures.

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

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 technology.

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


    * requirements on service composition
    * applications of WWW service composition
    * web languages for describing services and their relevance to
    * web-based composition languages
    * choreography and orchestration languages
    * workflow models and languages and their relevance to WWW service
    * 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
    * 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


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.
