3rd Workshop on Software Services: Semantic-based Software Services (WoSS'11)

Szczecin, Poland, September 18-21, 2011


Sponsored by:

The goal of the series of Workshops on Software Services (WoSS) is to present and discuss the recent significant developments in the field of software services.

WoSS intends to be an open forum for academics, practitioners, and vendors, allowing them to discuss the current trends and scientific and technological challenges, such as service quality assurance, adaptability, liability, interoperability, and automating service-oriented application construction and management.

The first three editions (September 2010, June 2011, and this one, upcoming in September 2011) are organized with the support of the FP7-ICT SPRERS project, with the aim to highlight the achievements of the on-going European collaborative projects subscribing to the FP7-ICT programme and the activities of the teams from new member states in software services.

The third edition is dedicated to Semantic-based Software Services and is supported also by the FP7-ICT mOSAIC project.
