AWeSOMe 2005 PC Co-chairs’ Message
We wish to extend a warm welcome to AWeSOMe’05, The First International Workshop on Agents, Web Services and Ontologies Merging. This workshop will be held in conjunction with the On The Move Federated Conferences and Workshops 2005 (OTM’05).
The current and future software needs are towards the development of large and complex Intelligent Networked Information Systems, covering a wide range of issues as required for the deployment of Internet- and Intranet-based systems in organizations and for e-business. The OTM’05 Federated Conferences and Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to their background to different emerging areas such as Data and Web Semantics, Distributed Objects, Web Services, Databases, Workflow, Cooperation, Interoperability and Mobility.
Web services are a rapidly expanding approach to building distributed software systems across networks such as the Internet. A Web service is an operation typically addressed via a URI, declaratively described using widely accepted standards, and accessed via platform-independent XML-based messages.
