Web Services in Multimedia Communication


Web services, as it is defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network. Web services build on Simple Object Access Protocol- (SOAP-) based messages, typically conveyed with HTTP with an XML serialization in conjunction with other web-related standards. It is an effort to extend the web from an infrastructure that provides services to humans to one that provides services to software looking to connect with other software. However, till date, many web services-related tasks such as automatic and dynamic discovery and composition are still challenging search areas.

We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as review articles that held with recent advances in web services technology. All topics relevant to web services are of interest, but we particularly encourage submissions related to the following aspects of web services:

  • Automatic and dynamic publishing, discovery, and selection techniques
