Extended “Programmatic Web Interfaces” Submission Deadline

October 28th, 2011  |  Published in call for papers, HTTP, REST, services, web  |  Bookmark on

A number of folks planning to submit to our call for papers for “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications” requested an extension on the submission deadline, so we’ve decided to do just that, extending the deadline by a week from Nov. 1 to Nov. 8. We’re already expecting a pretty good number of submissions, and hopefully the extra week will allow for more submissions and submissions of extra high quality. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

CfP: Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications

Tomas Vitvar, Cesare Pautasso, and I are co-editing an IEEE Internet Computing special issue on “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications.” See the full call for papers for details, but if you’re working on or have developed an app-to-app interface for your web application that you think is exemplary, please consider submitting an article about it. Submissions are due Nov. 1, but by Oct. 15 please email us a brief description of what you plan to submit.

WS-REST 2011 Call For Papers

January 7th, 2011  |  Published in call for papers, conferences  |  Bookmark on

The Second International Workshop on RESTful Design (WS-REST 2011) aims to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of research on the emerging resource-oriented style of Web service design.

For further details please read the full call for papers.

Last year’s workshop was a great success with about 30 submissions, which is quite good for a brand new workshop. I was on the program committee last year as well and helped review some very high quality papers. I look forward to reviewing more top-notch submissions this year.

Call for Papers

The First International Workshop on RESTful Design (WS-REST 2010) aims to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of research on the emerging resource-oriented style of Web service design.


Over the past few years, several discussions between advocates of the two major architectural styles for designing and implementing Web services (the RPC/ESB-oriented approach and the resource-oriented approach) have been mainly held outside of the research and academic community, within dedicated mailing lists, forums and practitioner communities. The RESTful approach to Web services has also received a significant amount of attention from industry as indicated by the numerous technical books being published on the topic.

This first edition of WS-REST, co-located with the WWW2010 conference, aims at providing an academic forum for discussing current emerging research topics centered around the application of REST, as well as advanced application scenarios for building large scale distributed systems.

In addition to presentations on novel applications of RESTful Web services technologies, the workshop program will also include discussions on the limits of the applicability of the REST architectural style, as well as recent advances in research that aim at tackling new problems that may require to extend the basic REST architectural style. The organizers are seeking novel and original, high quality paper submissions on research contributions focusing on the following topics:

  • Applications of the REST architectural style to novel domains
  • Design Patterns and Anti-Patterns for RESTful services
  • RESTful service composition
  • Inverted REST (REST for push events)
  • Integration of Pub/Sub with REST
  • Performance and QoS Evaluations of RESTful services
  • REST compliant transaction models
  • Mashups
  • Frameworks and toolkits for RESTful service implementations
  • Frameworks and toolkits for RESTful service consumption
  • Modeling RESTful services
  • Resource Design and Granularity
  • Evolution of RESTful services
  • Versioning and Extension of REST APIs
  • HTTP extensions and replacements
  • REST compliant protocols beyond HTTP
  • Multi-Protocol REST (REST architectures across protocols)

All workshop papers are peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published as part of the ACM Digital Library. Two kinds of contributions are sought: short position papers (not to exceed 4 pages in ACM style format) describing particular challenges or experiences relevant to the scope of the workshop, and full research papers (not to exceed 8 pages in the ACM style format) describing novel solutions to relevant problems. Technology demonstrations are particularly welcome, and we encourage authors to focus on “lessons learned” rather than describing an implementation.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submit at the WS-REST 2010 EasyChair installation.
