6th Workshop on Enhanced Web Service Technologies
September 14, 2011, Lugano, Switzerland

Call for Papers

The Workshop on Enhanced Web Service Technologies (WEWST), collocated with the European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS), is the premier workshop for academic and industrial communities to discuss innovative ideas and research contributions advancing the state-of-the-art in Web service technologies.

Although the advantages of Web services to allow businesses to interact with each other while maintaining a loose coupling are well known, there are still many challenges to be solved in this important field of research. The wide variety of tools, techniques, and technological solutions presented in WEWST share one common feature: they suggest new directions for Web service research by introducing new and sometime controversial ideas into the field. The workshop allows participants to gain new insights and to start collaborations by discussing how their own work can be used in related but different areas.


The WEWST 2011 program committee seeks original, high quality papers related to Web service enhancements, including but not limited to the following topics.
  • Self-organizing SOA
  • Dynamic service discovery
  • Automated service composition
  • Dynamic service binding
  • Service evolution
  • Coordination and business transactions
  • Embedded devices and sensors as services
  • Streaming services
  • Event-driven architectures
  • Cloud and grid services
  • Middleware for SOA
  • SLA enforcement
  • Reputation mechanisms
  • Technologies for social collaborations and service markets


The workshop proceedings are published as an ICPS volume by the ACM, available in the ACM digital library.


The workshop features 3 full papers and 2 short papers.
