The International Conference on Web Services - Europe 2003 
(ICWS-Europe'03) is an international conference focusing on Web Services 
research and development and will be held in Germany in Oct, 2003. 
ICWS-Europe'03 is an extended event of the 2003 International Conference 
on Web Services (ICWS'03) in Europe. It will be held concurrently with 
Net.ObjectDays'2003 (http://www.netobjectdays.org/node03/en/index.html) 
in Germany. ICWS provides a forum for researchers and industry 
practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the 
state of the art and practice of Web Services, as well as to identify 
the emerging research topics and define the future of Web Services 
computing. The first ICWS'03 will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 23 
- 26, 2003.

After some time of early experience Web Services are moving themselves 
from a new highly fragmented technology to a piece of nowadays 
infrastructures which promise to address various current challenges. 
These include classical integration and data access challenges in a 
heterogeneous environment. Web Services provide an open and 
technology-agnostic interface, and furthermore propel new usage 
paradigms in distributed computing infrastructures like Grid services 
based OGSA (Open Grid Services Architecture).

Successful adoption of Web Service technology relies on the definition 
of interoperable architectural building blocks which can be integrated 
in existing software architectures, like J2EE or CORBA heritage. 
Interoperability will surely prove itself as the critical success factor 
of the Web Service proliferation. In order to accomplish these 
interoperability various standardization bodies such as the W3C, UN or 
OASIS founded activities to create specifications and products 
implementing these building blocks.

In the coming months, more and more early adopters will gain experience 
in deploying web services in their enterprises. Enterprises might try to 
extend the reach to external partners and lead to business to business 
exploring web services based integration. Web services metering, 
monitoring such as SLA (service level agreement) and choreography or web 
services flow management within enterprise and across enterprise will 
gain more attention.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

     * Web Services based and Traditional Integration Architectures
     * Web services metering
     * Web Services and Semantic Web
     * Location-based Web Services Applications and Pervasive Services
     * Ontology for Web Services
     * Grid-based Services
     * Emerging Standards
     * Case Studies of Web Services Solutions
     * Interoperability --- Experiences and Desiderata
     * Web Services and E-Commerce
     * Web Services for Business Process Integration and Management
     * Federated Web Services Discovery
     * Web Services Choreography and Composition
     * Web services performance and modeling

Full papers must not exceed 15 pages (see http://www.netobjectdays.org 
Menu For Authors). All papers should be in Adobe portable document 
format (PDF) or PostScript format. The paper should have a cover page, 
which includes a 200-word abstract, a list of keywords, and author's 
e-mail address. Authors should submit a full paper via electronic 
submission to mario@jeckle.de or zhanglj@us.ibm.com. All papers accepted 
for ICWS-Europe'03 are peer-reviewed and will be published in a special 
proceedings "Web Services Computing" by Springer Verlag, Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science (LNCS).
