                              CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd Workshop on Mashups, Enterprise Mashups and Lightweight Composition on
                            the Web (MEM 2010)

                         held in conjunction with

          19th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2010)

                             Raleigh, NC, USA
                             April 26th, 2010



          Submission deadline: February 1st, 2010, 12 p.m. GMT+1


Quick adoption of mashup and lightweight composition technologies is one of
the landmarks of contemporary World Wide Web evolution. The MEM 2010
workshop will adopt a multi-aspect perspective on these technologies to
enable a complex understanding of their adoption, research and business
challenges and prospects. Firstly, it will cover basic infrastructures and
standards enabling scalable, secure and flexible deployment and enactment
of mashup and lightweight composition technologies. Secondly, it will focus
on user interfaces and interaction paradigms that make different approaches
to user-driven content and functionalities composition available to
non-expert users and collaborating crowds. Thirdly, it will take a look
into remarkable cases of mashups that combine existing services and
information sources with intelligent information processing algorithms and
user collaboration to provide value-added services. Finally, the workshop
will cover topics related to business aspects of mashup and lightweight
composition technologies (enterprise mashups).

The major part of innovation related to mashups and lightweight composition
is now happening in open on-line Web sites intended for wide audience from
all over the world. However, these technologies have prospects of becoming
major evolution factor for contemporary enterprises by bridging the gap
between business and IT. Thus, the workshop will focus both on usage of
mashup solutions in open environments underlining the requirement for
flexibility, performance and privacy preservation, and in business
environments stressing the need for security and control measures to be
incorporated in mashup and composition solutions.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for discussing research
topics underlying the concepts of lightweight composition, mashups, and
enterprise mashups. By bringing together representatives of academia and
industry, the workshop is also an important venue for identifying new
research problems and disseminating results of the research. By affiliating
with a renowned international conference, the workshop provides a
possibility to interact with researchers from other areas of the domain of
Information Systems.


The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to the following:
* Mashup and lightweight composition infrastructures
    * Security of widgets, gadgets, and related technologies
    * Security of enterprise information in mashups
    * Standards and protocols for lightweight composition
    * Scalability of mashup solutions
    * Methodologies of mashup development and maintenance
