The advances in modern technology and the constantly evolving requirements implied by dynamic business and operational environments impose new challenges for engineering and provisioning Web Services and Service-Based Applications.

Those services and applications have to become drastically more flexible: they should be able to operate and evolve in highly dynamic environments and to adequately identify and react to various changes in these environments. In such a setting, adaptation becomes a key capability of Web Services and Service-based Applications as it enables these services and applications to continuously change themselves in order to satisfy new requirements and demands dictated by the environment. The adaptability relies on the presence of monitoring mechanisms and facilities to identify, detect, and even predict critical events and situations that occur in the environment.

A variety of approaches and techniques addressing different forms of monitoring and adaptation have been proposed to date. Still, for delivering robust, dependable, and highly adaptable Web Services and Service-based Applications the definition of more holistic approaches is crucial. This requires the integration of the efforts of researchers from various disciplines and research areas. More specifically, this requires the integration across the different layers of a Service-based Application, including the business layer, the service layer, and the infrastructure layer. In addition, different competences, such as requirements engineering, design, quality assurance, realization, and management need to be brought together to devise those holistic approaches.

Workshop Scope

MONA+ 2010 aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines with various research backgrounds. The main objective for MONA+ is to discuss highly relevant and pressing research challenges and solutions on monitoring and adaptation of Web Services and Service-based Applications.

MONA+ 2010 will be the third workshop in a series of successful workshops:

  • MONA+ 2008: collocated with ServiceWave 2008 attracted over 20 participants;
  • MONA+ 2009: collocated with ICSOC/ServiceWave 2009 attracted over 50 participants and has received 25 paper submissions, of which 14 have been accepted.


Topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Monitoring and adaptation mechanisms, frameworks, and architectures
  • Monitoring and adaptation within/across business, service, and infrastructure layers
  • Self-adaptation and human-in-the-loop adaptation
  • Context-aware monitoring and adaptation
  • Design principles, patterns, techniques and methods for monitoring and adaptation
  • Predictive monitoring and pro-active adaptation
  • Verification of adaptation and of adaptable Web Services and Service-based Applications

Important Dates

Paper Submissions:  (Extended) September 30, 2010

Notifications: November 5, 2010

CRC Submissions: November 15, 2010

Early Registration: November 15, 2010
