Poznan, Poland
April 25, 2007

Deadline for submissions: February 18, 2007

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit your work to the WS-IQS'07 workshop collocated with jubilee BIS2007 conference.

The BIS conference is by now a well-respected event joining international researchers to discuss the wide range of the development, implementation, application and improvement of business applications and systems. It is addressed to the scientific community, people involved in the development of business computer applications, consultants helping to properly implement computer technology and applications in the industry.

The theme of the workshop is motivated by the current, extremely active research conducted in the area of SOA, Web services and Semantic Web services. Specific Web services interactions, first of all: matchmaking, negotiations, SLAs and quality aspects, are crucial elements on the way to the full development and successful application of the idea of Web services and Semantic Web services. Commercialization of Web services available in the Web must be driven by an emergence of Web services marketplaces and assurance of expected quality of service. Steps taken by the leading software companies demonstrate that the workshop has a lot to offer to the people both involved in the research field and the areas oriented for commercial application of the main topics of the discussed event.

This workshop will provide a forum for interaction among researchers and practitioners working in the area of Web services and their interactions. Novel and orginal papers are welcome as well as work in progress reports. We solicit research and industrial contributions.
