The 4th Workshop on Service Discovery and Composition in Ubiquitous and Pervasive Environments

To be held in Conjunction with the

10th International Conference on Mobile Web Information Systems (MobiWIS 2013)
August 26-28, 2013, Cyprus

Aims and Scope

In Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing (UPC), automatic service composition requires dealing with four major research issues: service matching and selection, coordination and management, scalability, fault tolerance, and adaptivenes to users contexts and network conditions. The service matching and selection is the first step in creating any composite service and requires a service discovery system. The discovery system should be scalable across large networks and adaptable to dynamic changes especially when services dynamically join and leave the network. Service coordination and management is the second issue to be addressed in automatic service composition. Composition platforms must have one or more brokers that coordinate and manage the different services involved in the composition. The problem of coordination and management becomes difficult when the brokers are distributed across the network and poses a scalability problem, especially when numerous users are concurrently making composite service requests. Since a composite service is dependent on many distributed elementary services, fault tolerance is another important issue to be included in service composition platforms in order to ensure its proper functioning. The platform should be able to detect and restore it. It should be noted also that in UPC environments, where services are coming up and going down frequently, the service composition platform should be able to adapt the composition by taking maximum advantage of the available services. This increases the composite service availability in dynamically changing networks.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers, students, and professionals from Software Engineering area, Agent-based Systems area and Mobile Computing area to reach a better understanding of the relationships between different issues and promote their research efforts.
