9th International Workshop on Web APIs and Service Architecture (WS-REST 2018)
Hosted by The Web Conference 2018 (WWW2018), April 23-27, 2018, Lyon, France
April 23, 2018,
The 9th International Workshop on Web APIs and Service Architecture (WS-REST 2018) is the 2018 edition of the WS-REST Workshop Series. Hosted by the renowned WWW conference series at the 2018 event in Lyon, France, WS-REST 2018 brings together a community of researcher and practitioners interested in Web APIs and service architecture.
Bringing Research and Industry Together
In keeping with the history of WS-REST events, the 2018 edition strives to bring together vital content from both the Web Services and REST communities. This year we will host two individual tracks (Research and Industry) as a way to continue and strengthen this collaboration between academic and applied experience.
The research track submissions (up to six page papers) will receive careful peer-review and, if accepted, will be published in the Web Conference proceedings. Industry track submissions focused on field-tested examples and use-cases in the form of extended abstracts or position papers (up to three pages) will be reviewed and selected by the organizers with advice from select program committee members.
APIs, Services, and REST
APIs have become the connective fabric of the Web and any application area that uses Internet or Web technologies. The goal of WS-REST 2018 is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners where they can openly and freely exchange ideas about how they are using Web technologies in their APIs, what works and what does not work for them, and what challenges they see in the current landscape of standards and technologies. Our goal is to capture both the state of the art when it comes to Web APIs and service architecture, but to also provide a forum that identifies some of the most pressing issues in that space, and can help solving them.
