2nd Workshop on Mashups, Enterprise Mashups and Lightweight Composition on the Web (MEM 2009)
held in conjunction with
18th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2009)
Quick adoption of mashup and lightweight composition technologies is one of landmarks of contemporary World Wide Web evolution. The MEM 2009 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.
The major part of innovation related to mashups and lightweight composition is now happening in 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 Internet environments underlining the requirement for flexibility, performance and privacy preservation, and in business intranet 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.
