Summary: This chapter focuses on services networks. We review the important aspects of services (flow patterns, semantic issues, Quality of Service (QoS) and user preferences), as well as service composition techniques, network metrics and models. The Concept-Service (CS) network matrix is introduced. The CS network dynamics and optimization based service composition are the original contributions of this chapter based on our years of research on this topic.
