Automated Service Composition is one of the ``grand challenges'' in the area of Service-Oriented Computing. Mike Papazoglou was not only one of the first researchers who identified the importance of the problem, but was also one of the first proposers of formulating it as an AI planning problem. Unfortunately, classical planning algorithms were not sufficient and a number of extensions were needed, e.g., to support extended (rich) goal languages to capture the user intentions, to plan under uncertainty caused by the non-deterministic nature of services; issues that where formulated (and, partially addressed) by Mike, being one of his key contributions to the service community.
