WebS ALPSS 2009
[ARCHIVE] First International Workshop on Web Service Automated Learning:
Pragmatics, Semantics and Syntax (WebS ALPSS’ 09)
In conjunction with OnTheMove Federated Conferences (OTM'09)
AIMS and SCOPE
The purpose of the workshop WebS ALPSS’ 09, Web Services Automated Learning: Pragmatics, Semantics and Syntax, is to bring together researchers and practitioners from communities interested in the design, deployment and application of novel algorithms and theoretical foundations on the Automated Learning of patterns for discovering, composing, accessing and using Web services.
Web services are the emerging technology to easy the interoperability among programming interfaces over Internet. Beyond the information Web services provide, the goal is do simple the usage and share of information among users and software agents, so stand smooth interoperation. Thus, full interoperability among heterogeneous Web services is the challenge to deal with. The needs to find out access patterns, to learn them, but furthermore, do more agile and robust the usage is the corner stone for the current Internet computing.
In order to take this challenge in, automated learning algorithms being adapted to Web service particularities is the focus of WebS ALPSS’ 09. Methodological approaches, as well as algorithmic solutions based on pragmatics, semantics and syntax for planning, composing, choreographing and orchestrating complex Web services are encouraged.
Actually, we claim for researchers’ contributions from multidisciplinary fields: artificial intelligence, machine learning, multi-agent systems, autonomous agents, computational linguistic, semantic Web, Web service composition. A transversal approach is mandatory in order to overcome the huge challenges in order to provide the flexible but robust solution demanded in industry and commerce.
