Mashups'10

 

Associated with European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS) 2010, Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 1 December 2010

Services computing and Web 2.0 are converging into a programmable Web today. The interaction and integration of services computing and Web 2.0 technologies, however, exposes various complexities that have to be faced. This workshop looks specifically at Services Mashups end-user-oriented compositions of Web APIs, Web content and Web data sources.

 

BACKGROUND

 

The Web is now programmable. Part of this programmability comes from the many Web APIs available from Web sites and services. An interesting consequence of these APIs is the ability to combine the resulting data and process into new data and processes achieving higher-level value than originally exposed by the initial APIs.

 

A classic example is to combine mapping APIs (e.g., Google Maps) and Atom data APIs (e.g. from New York Times) to have a new service that displays listing on the map. These resulting new Web applications, or mashups, add new value to the initial Web APIs that individually they would not be able to do alone.

 

While mashups have taken off and 1000s of them are currently available for various purposes, there remains various challenges and opportunities, that if addressed would make mashups even more applicable and accessible on the Web. Some of the main challenges are:

 

1. Devising programming models (languages, frameworks, platforms)   for the composition of Web-accessible services and data of all   kinds and architectural styles (REST, Atom, RSS, AtomPub, and   SOAP/WSDL) and development of integrated user-interfaces

 

2. Ensuring quality of service for mashups, including performance,   reliability, and security

 

3. Understanding social and economic factors in the creation, acceptance, and sustainability of services mashups, including software-as-services markets, services marketplaces and   intermediaries, digital communities, and pricing, incentive and contracting models

 

4. Integrating mashups into social computing platforms, such as Facebook and OpenSocial-enabled social networks, which provide  a  huge user base with profiles and social graphs data

 

5. Scaling mashups, maybe taking advantage cloud computing infrastructure

 

6. Providing the necessary primitives to secure resulting data from mashups and also maintain privacy concerns of the original data and APIs

 

7. Simplifying mashup platforms and tools to a point that they could be generated by end-users with minimal programming

 

8. Enabling mashups for mobile platforms, such as smartphones, which also expose interesting new kind of information such as location and profile data

 

In this fourth installment of the International Mashups Workshop we will solicit contributions addressing these issues and aim to bring together several relevant communities from academia and industry working on a) mashup-based applications, b) generic mashup tools, platforms and infrastructure, c) cross-cutting concerns of software service engineering and d) related topics from areas like social networking or economics.

 

We plan to continue the tradition of the three previous Mashups workshops (2007 in Vienna, 2008 in Sydney and 2009 in Orlando) of not only selecting a broad range of papers in the space but also getting keynote speakers from leading industry groups that are currently offering mashup tools and platforms for wide-consumptions and availability.

 

Contributors are invited to submit original research papers addressing relevant aspects of mashup applications, technologies and engineering. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

 

* Languages, frameworks, and platforms for the design,  implementation, testing and maintenance of services mashups,  including dynamic languages and frameworks

* New approaches to mashup construction: dataflow-, document-,  spreadsheet- and process-oriented mashups, end-user mashup  development, mashups on the cloud

* Novel applications of mashups, e.g., mobile mashups, location-aware  mashups, wiki-based mashups

* Specific service mashup application and technology examples with  respect to design, architecture, implementation, usability and  user-experience

* Mashups within social software platforms, e.g., OpenSocial or  Facebook

* Mashups within and across enterprises

* Quality of service and mashups: performance, reliability, security,  and other non-functional aspects

* Analysis of and experience with services mashups (creation, deployment, and usage) from social and economical perspectives; services markets and marketplaces, digital communities, pricing and  contracting models

* Experience reports on short-term and long-term maintenance and  evolution of mashups

 

Peer-reviewed workshop papers will be published as part of the ACM Digital Library (Approval Pending). Two kinds of contributions are sought: short position papers (not to exceed 4 pages) describing particular challenges or experiences relevant to the scope of the workshop, and full research papers (not to exceed 8 pages) describing novel solutions to relevant problems. Papers need to comply to ACM format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and are to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mashups2010).
