Ten years of service research from a computer science perspectiveIt has been more than 10 years since a strong research stream on services started from the field of computer science. The main trigger was without a doubt the introduction of the Web Service Description Language (WSDL), a specification to represent a piece of software functionally which could be remotely invoked. Nonetheless, this was only the “tipping point”. The generalized interest on this new development was followed by interesting topics of research on the application of semantics to enhance the description of services, the composition of services into processes, the analysis of the quality of services, the complexity of processes supporting services, and the development of comprehensive service description languages. This seminar will provide an overview of the main research topics around services and will glimpse at a new research field on the analysis of service networks.

Previously he worked for several major companies such as SAP Research (Germany) on the Internet of Services, the Boeing Company in Seattle (USA) on Enterprise Application Integration and CCG/Zentrum für Graphische Datenverarbeitung on Computer Supported Cooperative Work. Dr. Cardoso has a PhD from the University of Georgia (USA). From the scientific side, he has publish more than 125 scientific publications and has been part of more than 120 program committees and organization bodies, mainly on the fields of services, semantic web, and business process management. He is currently interested on service networks on the web, their (re)construction, analysis, and visualization using semantic web, linked data, and Linked USDL approaches.
