CFP - WAMIS 2007

______________________________Call for

The 3rd International Workshop on Web and Mobile Information Services


May 21-23, 2007, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
in conjunction with
21st IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information Networking
and Applications

Advances in the Web, Internet and mobile technologies offer new and
exciting services to users in various domains such as e-business,
healthcare, entertainment, and scientific activities. However, the
effective processing and management of the information services in a
large scale distributed and complex environment create new challenges
for the research community of the web and mobile services. This
workshop aims to bring together researchers in an effort to highlight
the state-of-the-art and discuss the issues and opportunities to
explore new research directions and develop new ideas. We welcome
submissions that include results which advance the state of the art
relating to the theme of the workshop, either through theoretical
analysis or experimental analysis. The main topics, to be addressed
include (but not limited to):

- Architectures for web and mobile services
- Data models and query languages for web and mobile systems
- Searching and discovery techniques
- Performance and reliability aspects
- Context oriented service provisioning
- Agent-based services
- Fault tolerance and exception handling
- Transaction and workflow models
- Agent and multi-agent systems and their applications
- Semantic web technologies and their applications
- Monitoring of services

Submission Instructions:

Only full papers will be accepted. The length of the paper is limited
to 8 single-spaced double column IEEE format pages (http://
computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm). Papers should be submitted by
email to the workshop organizers. All papers will be reviewed by
independent reviewers.


Accepted papers will be published by IEEE CS Press as IEEE 21st AINA
2007 Workshops Proceedings. Authors of high quality papers presented
in the workshop may be invited to submit extended versions of their
papers for publication to a journal. In previous years, selected
papers were published in two well known international journals -
Journal of Information and Software Technology and Journal of
Computer and System Sciences, Elsevier Science.
