In addition, this volume features three papers from the ECOWS 08 business track. WEWST focuses on research contributions advancing the state of the art in Web Services technologies. The main goal of the WEWST workshop is to serve as a forum for providing early exposure and much needed feedback to grow and establish original and emerging ideas within the Web Services community.
