Web services are playing a pivotal role both in business, service computing
and social networking services, and cloud computing. This is also the case
in the traditional FREG (foods, resources, energy and goods) services,
because almost
 all traditional services are replaced fully or partially by web services.
Demand-driven web services (DDWS) as a tri-paradigm, a computing paradigm,
a service paradigm, and a management paradigm, is becoming important for
web services,
service computing, cloud computing, and social networking computing.
However, many fundamental issues in developing DDWS remain open. For
example, what is the demand theory of web services? What is a demand-driven
architecture of web
services? How should real world demands be classified? How should web
services be classified? How can an ontology of web services be developed?
This book will address these issues by exploring the cutting-edge theory,
and methodologies of demand driven web services based on the novel
classification of demands and web services emphasizing cloud services,
mobile services, social networking services and e-business services from a
perspective of
computing, service and management. This book also provides applications of
the proposed theory, technologies and methodologies to successful
demand-driven web services in the real world. The proposed approaches will
facilitate research
 and development of web services, e-business, service computing, mobile
computing, cloud computing, and social computing.

Aims and Scope

This book aims at a broad audience of researchers and practitioners, and
provides the reader with an updated understanding of demand-driven web
services, cloud services, mobile services, and social networking services
by attracting
high quality manuscripts from academic researchers, policy makers and
practitioners in this area. Papers of all theoretical and technological
approaches and applications are welcome.

Submissions that cross multiple disciplines such as service, business,
management, industry, information systems, and intelligent systems to
develop theory and provide technologies and applications that could move
theory and practice
 forward in demand-driven web services, cloud services, mobile services,
e-business services, and social networking services are especially

Topics of contributions include, but are not limited to, the following

Part I.  Theory of demand-driven web services

* Topics: fundamental concepts, models, architectures, frameworks, schemes
theories for planning, designing, building, operating or evaluating,
demand-driven web services.

Part II. Technologies for demand-driven web services
* Topics: AI-based technologies as such: rule-based systems,
systems, machine learning techniques,  multi-agent systems techniques,
neural networks systems, fuzzy logic systems, cased-based reasoning
systems, genetic algorithms techniques, data mining algorithms, intelligent
agents, user intelligent interfaces;  and emergent AI-based technologies,
Web technologies,
 service technologies, social networking technologies, decision making
technologies, DSS technologies are welcome

Part III. Applications for demand-driven web services
* Topics: case studies and applications in using technologies and
fundamental theory in Part I, II in the representative service domains such
as: e-business services, mobile services, social networking services, cloud
financial services, legal services, healthcare services, logistics
services, educational services, e- FREG services, and military services
taking into account demands from government, organization, enterprise,
community, individual,
customer, and citizen.

Part IV. Trends and Challenges on demand-driven web services
* Topics: emergent AI-based technologies, technologies of Big data, social
networking services, integrations of these technologies, and the
implications, challenges for demand-driven web services.
       Part V. Emerging demands and emerging demand-driven web services.
* Topics:  Emerging demands, emerging technologies including human
computation and big data management, methodologies for demand-driven web

Submission Procedure

Please submit a brief summary, consisting of about 150 words, of the
proposed chapter clearly identifying the main objectives of your
contribution by May 8, 2013. Authors of the accepted proposals will be
notified and provided with
detailed guidelines. Full chapters are to be submitted by June 30, 2013.

All submissions through emails should be electronically sent to the book
editors Dr Zhaohao Sun. email: z.sun at ballarat.edu.au, and Prof. John
Yearwood at jly at ballarat.edu.au

Submission Format and Evaluation

Every book chapter submission should consist of 8,000-12,000 words, and be
structured into sections including Abstract, Introduction, background (or
related work), main sections, future research directions, conclusion,
Every book chapter must be submitted in Microsoft® Word, and be typewritten
in English in APA style based on “manage source” function.

Every book chapter submission is original. Only ORIGINAL articles will be
accepted for publication by IGI-Global. Upon acceptance of your article,
you will be required to sign a warranty that your article is original and
has NOT been
submitted for publication or published elsewhere.

Each chapter will be evaluated by at least two academic peers on related
themes in a blind mode. Conditioned chapters will have an additional
opportunity for being improved and evaluated. In the second evaluation, a
editorial decision among: accepted or rejected will be reported. All of the
accepted chapters must be submitted according to the Editorial publishing
format rules timely. Instructions for authors can be downloaded at:

Important Dates

* May  8, 2013:  Submission of Abstract of the proposed chapter to the
* June 30, 2013:  submission deadline of first version of full chapters.
* August 15, 2013: notification deadline of editorial results (definitively
accepted chapter, conditioned chapter, or definitively rejected chapter).
* Early 2014: the book is scheduled for release.
