CALL FOR PAPERS
Third International Workshop on
Service Matchmaking and Resource Retrieval in the Semantic Web
8th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2009)
October 25, 2009
Washington DC, USA
Aims & Scope:
One central challenge of service coordination in the Semantic Web is how to best relate requests for services with the services that are available. This functionality is usually provided by matchmaking capabilities (which may themselves be deployed as services, brokers or middle agents) that select the services that are closest to a requested service on the basis of a declarative characterization of the capabilities of both service requested and services provided.
More generally, resource retrieval extends the notion of service matchmaking to the process of discovering any kind of resource (services, data, information, knowledge, even persons and organizations) for given settings, participating entities, and purposes. It is at the core of several scenarios in the Semantic Web area, spanning from Web services, Grid computing, and Peer-to-Peer computing, to applications such as e-commerce, human resource management, and social networking applications such as dating services.
The primary objective of this workshop is to bring together academic and industry researchers and industry practitioners who tackle semantic service matchmaking and discovery from various points of view. In particular, we intend to build bridges to the software engineering and model-driven development communities in order to share requirements, technologies, and experiences that might be helpful in advancing the state of the art in semantic service matchmaking and resource retrieval.
Going to Practice: The Third Semantic Service Selection (S3) Contest
The SMR2 workshop also integrates the third edition of the open international contest on semantic service selection (S3) <http://www.dfki.de/~klusch/s3> executed in collaboration with the Semantic Web Service Challenge. The S3 contest provides the means and a forum for evaluating the retrieval performance of Semantic Web service matchmakers in terms of recall, precision, F1, response time etc., over given test collections based on the prominent semantic service formats such as OWL-S, WSML and the standard SA-WSDL.
Accepted papers will be available online as a volume of CEUR proceedings. In addition, selected papers will be published in a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT, Springer Verlag).
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Advanced searching of services and other resources in the Semantic Web
* Novel approaches to matchmaking and brokering in the Semantic Web, with a particular emphasis on Semantic Web services
* Model-driven semantic service engineering and matchmaking
* Semantic retrieval of resources and services in P2P and Grid networks
* Matchmaking in e-commerce scenarios: auctions, e-marketplaces, supply chains
* Matchmaking in other application scenarios: e-government, biopharma, etc.
* Composition planning of Semantic Web services
* Negotiation of Semantic Web services and resources
* Interleaving of discovery, composition, and negotiation of Semantic Web services
* Semantic Web services selection
* Formal description and handling of Semantic Web services, queries, and resources
* Non-functional service properties and their use for discovery (and composition)
* Trust issues of Semantic Web service discovery
* Prototypes and tools for Semantic Web services engineering
* Practical business and user-oriented issues and experiences of implementing SW service retrieval tools
* Experimental comparative evaluation of implemented SW service retrieval tools
Contributions to the workshop can be made as technical papers addressing different issues of service and resource matching. The papers should not be longer than 12 pages using the LNCS Style:
All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and should be submitted
