KSM09 - 1st Workshop on Knowledge Services & Mashups

In line with the trend towards modular service-oriented architectures, we can observe that knowledge management solutions increasingly move from one-for-all solutions towards more modular approaches. However, these developments are often merely a decomposition into software components without taking into account the user of such systems. But the notion of service goes beyond components; it usually assumes that the granularity of functionality as well as packaging is motivated by usage patterns (e.g., business processes) and not purely technical (software engineering) considerations. This requires rethinking offer and demand (by knowledge workers) of such services, which includes a more sound understanding of knowledge work and new conceptual foundations for its support in order to identify basic knowledge services and their interplay or orchestration.
Furthermore, in the context of Web 2.0, the notion of mashups has emerged as an integration paradigm which is lightweight and easy such that end-users themselves can combine different services (like aggregating and filtering feeds of content, calendar information etc.), and applications and services can easily participate and offer those feeds. This is related to developments towards personal learning environments (PLE).

The workshop aims at bringing these strands of development of service-oriented approaches to supporting knowledge management and learning together to go one step further beyond the enthusiasm about knowledge management 2.0, which is essentially about social software for knowledge management. The scope of the workshop ranges from theoretical and conceptual foundations (which might come from various disciplines), methodical contributions on knowledge service & mashup engineering and contextualization/personalization up to technical prototype development and gathering experiences from evaluations.
