Semantic Web Services and Web Process Composition
The first international workshop on Semantic Web Services and Web Process Composition (SWSWPC 2004) intends to bring researchers, scientists from both industry and academics, and representatives from different communities together to study, understand, and explore the phases that compose the lifecycle of Semantic Web Processes. The workshop presents what can be achieved by symbiotic synthesis of two of the hottest R&D and technology application areas: Web services and the Semantic Web, as recognized at the latest the twelfth international World Wide Web conference (WWW 2003) and in industry press. The emphasis of the workshop is mainly on Web Services, Web processes and semantics which are important movements emerging in the World Wide Web. Web Services and Web processes promise to ease various of nowadays infrastructure challenges, such as data, application, and process integration. Web services are truly platform-independent and allow the development of distributed loosely-coupled applications, a key characteristic for the success of dynamic Web Processes. This volume contains all the papers presented at SWSWPC 2004, held at the Westin Horton Plaza Hotel, San Diego, California, USA, July 6, 2004, in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2004). A total of 9 papers were selected from 19 submitted papers, after a double blind revision process. In addition, we were honored by the presence of two distinguished invited speaker, namely Prof. Munindar Singh (North Carolina State University, USA) and Prof. Boualem Benatallah (The University of New South Wales, Australia). We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the authors, who provided the rich material discussed at the workshop, and the members of the Program Committee who have reviewed and assessed the scientific merit of each submitted paper, thus ensuring high quality standards.
