Aims and Scope

In the last years, service-oriented computing and pervasive computing are emerging as the next computing paradigms. Service-oriented computing allows to easily develop, publish and use software functionalities. Pervasive computing rests on mobile and/or embedded devices, available anywhere and anytime, that can potentially provide services. Bringing these two trends together raises the new challenge of integrating/unintegrating, in an application, non-predefined services just discovered in the pervasive environment.

Three main sub-areas of this challenge are tackled in this workshop:

Previsious Edition

List of Topics

We welcome the submission of papers from the full spectrum of issues related to services integration in pervasive environments. The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

Paper Submission and Proceedings

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, which should be written in English and with a very precise and concise presentation of no more than 6 pages in ACM format. Authors are invited to send their manuscripts as an attachment (PDF or PS format) by email to the workshop chair at Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. Workshop proceedings will be included in the edition of the ICPS conference, published by ACM.
