Aims + Topis of Interest

The Industry Program Board of the Federated Conferences Event
is specifically soliciting reports on relevant case studies, intended
to cover industry practice related to the subjects treated by these
conferences, which straddle the intersection of distributed computing,
databases, cooperative systems as their respective technologies and
methodologies  become applied in the context of the internet and semantic

Selected case study reports will be presented in a separate Industry
Program targeted at audiences interested in practical experience, best
practices and corporate strategy related to all aspects of distributed
internet- and intranet-based computing. These attendees will have a
uniquely easy opportunity to access presentations in the scientific
program as well as the keynote talks of all three conferences.

The federated conferences aspire to be the prime defining event in
combining distributed computing's infrastructure, tools and applications
in organizations.

Submission format and subject
All case study reports or vision papers must be electronically submitted,
via the conference website:
We envisage these will typically be 2-3 pages long, but should anyway be
limited to 6 pages, and must be relevant to the conferences' subjects, and
describe past, ongoing, or planned work in sufficient detail and context
to allow discussion with a wider audience (no brochure material!).
Submissions should follow Springer Verlag format, which can be found at:

Submission Deadline
All submissions must be received by August 16, 2003 midnight Pacific
Time. This is a firm deadline. To be able to submit a text, a prior
abstract must be filed on the above site(this filing will issue a login
and password for your final submission)

Selection process
The Industry Program Board will inspect proposed contributions
for their relevance and general interest to the intended audience.
The availability of program slots is however limited. The resulting
selection will be communicated to submitters by email by September
1 or 2 depending on time zone.

Case Study Publication and Presentation
Selected case study and vision paper authors will be required
to register for the conference and guarantee presentation of
their submission for wide discussion (single Industry Program
track, parallel only with the scientific program). Presented
reports will be printed and distributed at the event.
Negotiations are under way with an electronic journal publisher
to publish a selection of "best papers" (as decided by the Irvine
attendees) for wider distribution. Presenters will be responsible
for production and distribution of their own presentation material
(e.g. copies of PowerPoint slides) should they choose to do this.
