The advent of powerful mobile devices, mobile computing platforms and interfaces are rapidly ushering the next computing revolution. The recent surge in the growth and adoption of the RESTful services paradigm for delivering applications as services on the Web have challenged and changed conventional approaches to software design and delivery. Combined with the evolution of Semantic Web techniques and principles, the areas of Mobile Computing and RESTful services can take us closer toward realizing the Web as a ubiquitous platform for data, information, knowledge and application exchange. While the possibilities are endless and are exciting, one needs to address certain basic issues before the grand vision can be realized. Some of these include:

  • Efficient ways to distribute data processing between service providers and users, especially data integration in case of mashups,
  • Semantic annotation of data and data formats that can be used in bandwidth constrained environments such as mobile environments,
  • Need to identify techniques to model and describe various execution environments, their capabilities and constraints and
  • The role of semantic web in taking the foundations of social computing and other emerging Web 2.0 paradigms into ubiquitous environments.
