Call For Papers

The 2nd International Workshop on the Adaptation of Web Services (AWS'2013)
June 25-28, 2013, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
in conjunction with ANT’2013 conference

Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is a computing paradigm that utilizes Web services as the basic constructs to support the development of rapid, low-cost and easy composition of distributed applications even in heterogeneous environments. With the advent of SOC, computing environments have become open, and components are no longer under a single organization’s control. Consequently, Web services based applications are becoming difficult to adapt. Moreover, with the rapid growth of communication and information technologies, adaptation has gained a significant attention as it becomes a key feature of Web services allowing them to operate and evolve in highly dynamic environments. Adaptation mechanisms refer to different instantiations including configuration, healing, optimization, and protection. The primary objective of this workshop is to investigate ideas that may contribute to the adaptation of Web services. Theoretical as well as practical aspects are welcome. The workshop organizer welcomes participation and contributions from those working or interested in the intersection of technologies such as agent technology and autonomic computing with SOC.

The topics of interest for AWS’2012 include, but are not limited to:
• Adaptation solutions to Web services
• Applications of adaptive Web services
• Engineering of adaptive Web services
• Optimization of Web services
• Configuration of Web services
• Healing of Web services
• Protection of Web Services
• Self-* Web services
• Agents vs. Web services
• Agents for Web services
• Design and management of self-* Web services.
• Adaptation solutions to the Cloud
• Autonomic Cloud
