Subject: Fwd: 1st Call for Papers: Workshop on Web Service Composition andAdaptation (WSCA-2008)

Hi folks,

Just thought I would pass this along, and let you 
know that I will be speaking on SOA-related 
Semantic Technology at the 2008 Semantic 
Technology Conference in San Jose, CA May 22, 

Chat maņana,

>2nd International Workshop on Web Service 
>Composition and Adaptation (WSCA-2008)
>Special Theme: Dynamic Services Composition and User Steering
>Website: (link to be provided)
>July 8, 2008, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
>Affiliated with IEEE International Services Computing Conference 2008
>Recent advances in networks, information and computation grids, and
>WWW have resulted in the proliferation of a multitude of physically
>distributed and autonomously developed Web services. Correspondingly,
>the construction and deployment of composite services by combining and
>reusing independently developed component services is an important
>capability in the emerging Web-based computing infrastructure.  In
>particular, ongoing research in automatic and semi-automatic
>techniques of creating and managing service compositions is paving the
>way for business processes to continually evolve and be flexible--an
>important requirement in managing Information Technology (IT)
>complexity for big and small businesses. Typically, issues related to
>dynamic service compositions include developing approaches to handling
>service failures, changes in service functionalities, and changes to
>quality of service parameters. Other related topics include
>understanding external events, which are the sources of volatility in
>service compositions. In people-oriented service compositions, the
>element of human intervention further complicates the compositions and
>the manner in which compositions may be adapted. One example of this
>is user steering, which includes human involvement in interpreting
>dynamic compositions and making decisions on how the process will
>adapt to change. Exploring novel techniques such as mash-ups that
>support incremental and dynamic process evolution due to user steering
>is also an important topic of interest.
>The workshop will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Services
>Computing Conference. SCC is a prime international forum for both
>researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest
>fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of services
>computing, which in essence, has emerged as a new cross discipline
>that shapes the thinking of performing services business more
>efficiently and effectively. The workshop truly complements this theme
>of the conference. Additionally, for this year, we are including a
>special theme for dynamic service composition and user
>steering---topics in SOC research that have been lately gaining a lot
>of momentum in both academia and industry. We believe that the
>workshop presentations and discussions will not only bring out the
>current state of  advances in service composition, adaptation and
>human involvement in constructing processes, but also provide valuable
>insights for future research and development avenues and for work-in
>progress in related areas.
>*Specific topics of interest include*
>- Formal methods in service composition
>- Verification of service composition
>- Reuse in service composition: service compatibility and substitution
>- Ontology-based approaches to service composition
>- Adaptation and evolution of services
>- Dynamic service selection and binding
>- Self aware, self-optimizing, and self-healing Web services and compositions
>- Modeling of change in functional, non-functional, and process semantics
>- Re-planning of service compositions
>- "People activities" and "People-initiated" processes
>- Service compositions in mash-ups
>- Human interaction workflow patterns
>- Case studies, and applications (e.g., in e-science and scientific workflows)
>*Submission guidelines*
>Authors are asked to submit original, unpublished research papers that
>are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Papers
>must be limited to 8 pages and following the formatting of the IEEE
>Computer Science Proceedings template
>(http://www.computer.org/cspress+instruct.htm).  Papers can be
>submitted electronically via EasyChair submission management system

>workshop and present the paper.
>*Workshop proceedings*
