                 Issues and Perspectives
         http://sisinflab.poliba.it/smr06/

                 Co-located with VLDB 2006

Matchmaking is basically the process of discovering, based on a givenrequest, promising partners for some kind of purpose. It is a processcommon to several scenarios in the Internet era, spanning from e-commerce to web-services, to grid computing, to human resource management, to actual dating services, to Peer-to-Peer computing. Both requests and partner descriptions are usually, but not always, given some kind of structure.

Obviously, main issues emerge when the search is not limited to
identity matches but, as in real life, when the objective is finding
partners suitable at least to some extent, or -- when a single partner
cannot fulfill the request
-- find a pool of cooperating partners able to accomplish it.
As this process may lead to various possible matches, the notion of
ranking becomes central, to provide a list of potential partners
ordered according to some criteria.

--- TOPICS ---

Aims of the workshop are:
- Gather researchers from different communities and from both academia
and industry to debate and find common ground on matchmaking issues.
- Present open and emerging issues, and possible solutions to
matchmaking problems, which we summarize in the next section.
- Propose shared and acceptable methods to evaluate effectiveness of
approaches to matchmaking.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

         - approximate matchmaking
         - hybrid resource retrieval
         - web services discovery and composition
         - hybrid resource retrieval
         - approximate reasoning for resource retrieval
         - non-monotonic reasoning for resource retrieval
         - resource annotation for matchmaking
         - Efficient storage of semantic-based annotations for
 matchmaking and retrieval
         - Semantic matchmaking and retrieval applications for:
                 * P2P and B2C E-marketplaces
                 * Semantic Grid
                 * Mobile commerce
                 * Workflow composition
                 * Business processes
                 * Dating systems
                 * Competencies management
                 * Multimedia



--- SUBMISSION ---

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions (not
published or under consideration in other journals or conferences) on
the topics of the workshop. All submissions must be in English.
Submissions must clearly identify the nature of the paper as research,
experience, or position. All submitted papers will be carefully
evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and
clarity of expression by three members of the Program Committee.

It is planned (without confirmation yet) to publish post workshop
proceedings in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series. Informal proceedings will be handed out at the workshop
site.

Authors should submit their papers in PDF format through the conference
management system that can be accessed at
http://www.easychair.org/SMR06/.

Submissions must not exceed 15 pages for full length papers and 6 pages
for research-in-progress proposals and must be formatted using the
camera-ready templates of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Author instructions can be found at
