The International Workshop on "Web Services - Modeling and Testing" is organised within the framework of the Telcert European Project. Goal of the project, as stated in the project website, is to ...
"make breakthroughs in the tools and test systems that assure interoperability. These underpin conformance and certification programs and can provide confidence that the ingredients of a learning or system will work together by design. This in turn reduces the need for expensive and time consuming adaptation and re-engineering, and stimulates market growth"
Web Services are today the default choice for solving the various issues related to the organization and implementation of software distribution, in many different domains including e-learning. Obviously ensuring interoperability of Web Services plays a major role for the real take up of this technology. In this context main objective of the workshop is to put together researchers and practitioners working on system modeling according to the Service Oriented paradigm and on verifying implementation conformance, in particular using testing techniques.
