Call for Papers

Erfurt, Germany, September 27-30, 2004

The ECOWS'04 conference will be held in conjunction with the 5th 
International Conference Net.ObjectDays 2004 (NODE'04) and the 
International Conference on Grid Services Engineering and Management 
(GSEM'04) in Erfurt, Germany, September 27-30, 2004.

The 2004 European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS'04) is the a 
international conference focusing on Web Services. ECOWS'04 is a forum 
for researchers and industry practitioner to exchange information 
regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of Web Services, 
as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future 
directions of Web Services computing. ECOWS'04 has special interest in 
papers that contribute to the convergence of Web Services, Grid 
Computing, e-Business and Autonomic Computing, or those that apply 
techniques from one area to another. The conference is a sister event of 
the International Conference on Web Services 2004 held in San Diego and 
the sucessor of the International Conference on Web Services Europe 2003.

Web Services are network-based application components with 
services-oriented architecture using standard interface description 
languages and uniform communication protocols. Typical industry solution 
areas of Web Services are business-to-business integration, business 
process integration and management, content management, e-sourcing, 
composite Web Services creation, design collaboration for computer 
engineering, multimedia communication, digital TV, and interactive Web 
Solutions. Currently, Grid computing has also started to leverage Web 
Services to define standard interfaces for Business Grid services and 
generic reusable Grid resources.

As the first academic conference in the field of Web Services, the 2003 
First International Conference on Web Services (ICWS'03) and the 
International Conference on Web Services Europe 2003 have proved to be 
an excellent catalyst for research and collaboration, and we fully 
expect that this ICWS 2004 conference will continue this trend.

The program of ICWS-Europe'04 will continue to feature a variety of 
papers, focusing on topics ranging from Web Services and Dynamic 
Business Process Composition, Web Services and Process Management, Web 
Services Discovery, Web Services Security, Web Services Based 
Applications for e-Commerce, Web Services based Grid Computing, Web 
Services Standards and Technologies, Web Services Solutions, Web 
Services Industrial, and other emerging technologies or solutions.
