Workshop Theme: Empower Web Services with Adaptability

Web services have been the main force in driving service-oriented computing that promises not only a new paradigm for B2B collaboration, but also an opportunity for the creation of value-added services and new business models. Together with Web 2.0 and utility computing, Web services are one of the key technology enablers of a new software deployment paradigm ?Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Pay-as-you-go SaaS stresses reliance on the guarantee of service level agreement for satisfying the computing needs of users, without them needing knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.

A variety of classical and emerging challenges as arise in deploying and operating services on the Web in the real dynamic environment. These include how to atomically discover and binding to a 憆ight?service; how to automatically negotiate a SLA among a group of collaborative services; how to check/resolve policy conflictions between these services; how to handle exceptions of long-running transactions across loosely coupling services etc. All of these challenges share a similar requirement for web services: building adaptability in web services so that they can adapt themselves to accommodate the heterogeneity of interface and QoS, resolve the conflictions and handle the fault in a dynamic environment at runtime.

In the previous events of this workshop series, published papers have addressed aspects of software architecture, process and test, deployment and configuration, and quality of service management. In the 3rd edition of the workshop we aim to broaden the scope by specifically addressing topics that link adaptability of Web services to the paradigm of SaaS and cloud computing. In additional to the topics covered in the previous workshops, we also encourage submissions of papers addressing relatively new technologies such as virtualization, multi-tenancy, monitoring, billing and reporting of service usages, and enterprise mashups.

The aim of SEASS 2009 is to encourage academic researchers and industry practitioners to present and discuss all adaptability-related research and experiences in a very broad spectrum of Service Oriented Computing (SOC). The topics of the workshop include but not limited to:

* Software architecture support for enhancing SOA adaptability, including standards and protocols proposal or extension for dynamic collaborations among services
* Accountability of services, including mechanisms, algorithms and methods to monitoring, analysing and reporting service status and usage profile
* Capacity planning of services running on the cloud
* Security and trustworthy in multi-tenancy service hosting environment
* Experience in using Web 2.0 and Mashup for enterprise services
* Web services for data intensive computing and scientific workflows
* Patterns, best practices and experience report in adaptation development for a class of web service applications
* Automated deployment and configuration of services on middleware
* Policy definition, confliction checking and resolving and enforcement at runtime
* Adaptive service engineering
* Negotiation protocols for SLA and dynamic service binding
* Testing, configuration and deployment for adaptive service management
* Requirement analysis for adaptation in SOA
* Adaptive service development process
