Call for Book Chapters

REST: From Research to Practice

to be published by Springer in 2011

The goal of the "REST: From Research to Practice" book is to provide an
introduction to REST itself and the current state of the art and
application areas of REST, as well as to contribute to the establishment
of a strong foundation for future research around the REST architectural

REST has gained popularity not only as an alternative approach to
building Web Services, but it also has now become a buzzword that is
often used to denote a lightweight and loosely coupled approach to
design and implement Service-Oriented Architectures. In this book we are
focusing on applying REST beyond public Web applications (e.g., in
enterprise environments), and on reusing established and well-understood
design patterns when doing so. The goal is to establish a good
understanding of what REST is about, and the constraints it focuses on
as an architectural style. The reader will be able to understand how
RESTful systems can be designed and deployed, and what the results are
in terms of benefits and challenges encountered in the process.

Since REST is relatively new as an approach for designing Web Services,
the more advanced part of the book collects a number of challenges to
some of the assumptions and constraints of REST, and looks at current
research work on how REST can be extended and applied to scenarios that
often are considered not to be a good match for RESTful architectures.

In summary, the goal of the book is to allow readers to come to a deeper
understanding of REST on a practical as well as on an advanced level,
and to provide an outlook what research on REST is currently working on.
The main aim of the book is thus to serve as a starting point for people
looking for a deeper principled understanding of REST, its applications,
its limitations, and current research work in the area. It is intended
for information and service architects and designers who are interested
to learn about REST, how it is applied, and how it is being advanced.

Topics of Interest

We are seeking high quality contributions with chapters on, but not
limited to, the following topic areas:

* REST Application Case Studies
* REST Design Patterns
* REST Development Frameworks
* REST Extensions
* REST Research

Chapter Submission Procedure

Interested researchers and practitioners are encouraged to submit on or
before September 15th, 2010 a 1-2 page chapter proposal clearly
explaining the content of the proposed chapter through the easychair on

The proposal should contain the following information:

* Title of the Chapter
* Name of the Author(s), Affiliation, Email
* Topic Area Covered by the Chapter
* Abstract
* Outline of the Chapter

Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by September 20th, 2010
about the status of their proposal. Full chapters (up to 20 pages in
Springer format) will be due by October 15th, 2010. All submitted
chapters will be reviewed for technical correctness and clarity by at
least 3 reviewers. Selected contributors may also be requested to serve
as reviewers for this book project. Once reviewed, the final chapters
have to be delivered by November 15th 2010 in order to ensure that the
book can be published in the first quarter of 2011.
