    The 2nd International Workshop on the Adaptation of Web Services
            June 25-28, 2013, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada


Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is a computing paradigm that utilizes Web
services as the basic constructs to support the development of rapid,
low-cost and easy composition of distributed applications even in
heterogeneous environments. With the advent of SOC, computing environments
have become open, and components are no longer under a single
organization’s control. Consequently, Web services based applications are
becoming difficult to adapt. Moreover, with the rapid growth of
communication and information technologies, adaptation has gained a
significant attention as it becomes a key feature of Web services allowing
them to operate and evolve in highly dynamic environments. Adaptation
mechanisms refer to different instantiations including configuration,
healing, optimization, and protection. The primary objective of this
workshop is to investigate ideas that may contribute to the adaptation of
Web services. Theoretical as well as practical aspects are welcome. The
workshop organizer welcomes participation and contributions from those
working or interested in the intersection of technologies such as agent
technology and autonomic computing with SOC.


The topics of interest for AWS’2013 include, but are not limited to:
•    Adaptation solutions to Web services
•    Applications of adaptive Web services
•    Engineering of adaptive Web services
•    Optimization of Web services
•    Configuration of Web services
•    Healing of Web services
•    Protection of Web Services
•    Self-* Web services
•    Agents vs. Web services
•    Agents for Web services
•    Design and management of self-* Web  services
•    Adaptation solutions to the Cloud
•    Autonomic Cloud
