Description

The Advances in Web Services Research (AWSR) Book Series features only the latest research findings and industry solutions dealing with all aspects of Web services technology. The overall scope of this book series will cover the advancements in the state of the art, standards, and practice of Web services, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of Services computing, including Web services on Grid computing, Web services on multimedia, Web services on communication, etc. AWSR provides an open, formal series for high quality books developed by theoreticians, educators, developers, researchers and practitioners for professionals to stay abreast of challenges in Web services technology.

Web services are network-based application components with services-oriented architecture using standard interface description languages and uniform communication protocols. Due to the importance of the field, standardization organizations such as WS-I, W3C, OASIS and Liberty Alliance are actively developing standards for Web services. Considering these developments, the Advances in Web Services Research (AWSR) Book Series seeks to further emphasize the importance of web services research and expand the availability of comprehensive resources in the advancing field.
