The 2nd International Ubiquitous Web Systems and Intelligences Workshop (UWSI) was held in May 2006 in Glasgow, Scotland. The workshop was co-located with the 2006 International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications.
From amongst the accepted papers in the workshop, eight authors were invited to submit their extended versions for a special issue of the International Journal of Web and Grid Services v2(3) 2006. Submitted papers were then reviewed by at least two reviewers and based on the reviews, four papers were accepted in the special issue.
The theme of this special issue is ‘Intelligence in Web Services’. The papers discuss the use of agents and other mechanisms, such as context-awareness policy and case-based reasoning, for providing more intelligent web services and their applications.
