IC'2002 Section on Web Services and Service-Oriented Architectures
The 2002 International Conference on Internet Computing (IC'2002)
June 24-27, 2002, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Call for papers:
Service-oriented architectures (SOA) are a new paradigm for software
development in which agents may dynamically discover and use Internet
services. Internet services are nothing more than components that can be
accessed through the Internet to deliver particular tasks. Examples of
Internet services include online shopping carts, weather information, stock
quotes, and printing.

SOA enhance the traditional software development process, since programmers
can built applications based on Internet services, even if these services
are not yet available or not they are not known by developers. The idea is
that services are described through a service description language,
dynamically discovered by applications that need to use them, and invoked
through the communication protocol defined in its interface.

This flexible architecture has already shown its usefulness. One example is
the automation of the B2B buying process, where buyers can dynamically
discover sellers and perform the buying process without human interaction.
However, there are still many issues that should be addressed in the design
and implementation of service-based applications, including:
- Middleware support for SOA and Web services;
- Extensions and limitations of application protocols (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI);
- Security & trust;
- Service performance and availability;
- Applications of SOA and Web services.

Research papers and industrial reports on the above issues (or on any issue
related to SOA and Web services) are welcome. The review process will be
based on the quality of the submitted papers and their relevance to the

Papers should have up to 7 single sided pages with font size of 10 to 12,
including figures and references. Papers should be submitted by e-mail to
the organizer in MS-WORD, or PDF. The first page of the draft paper should
include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address, e-mail
address, telephone number, and fax number for each author. Accepted papers
will be part of the conference proceedings. The length of the Camera-Ready
papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must
not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication

Important dates:
Submission deadline: March 15, 2002
Notification of acceptance: March 20, 2002
Camera-ready: April 22, 2002

      The International Multiconferences in Computer Science
      is a major annual international research event.
      The last Multiconferences attracted over 1400 computer
      science researchers.  It is anticipated that The 2002
      International Multiconferences will attract about 2000
      participants.  The 2002 event will be composed of 14
      (planned) international conferences - attendees will have
      full access to all 14 conferences' sessions and tracks.


      The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA
      Press (ISBN) in hardcopy.  The proceedings will be available
      at the conference.  Some accepted papers will also be
      considered for journal publication (soon after the
      conference).  (In addition to the hardcopy, it is also
      planned to publish the papers on a CD.)
      All conference proceedings published by CSREA Press are
      considered for inclusion in major database indexes that are
      designed to provide easy access to the current literature of
      the sciences (database examples: ISI Thomson Scientific,
      IEE INSPEC, ...).


      A number of university faculty members and their staff
      in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference
      Division, Las Vegas ), will be organizing the conferences.
      The conferences will be sponsored by World Academy of
      Sciences and co-sponsored by Computer Science Research,
      Education, & Applications Press (CSREA: USA Federal
      EIN # 58-2171953) together with research centers,
      international associations, international research groups,
      and developers of high-performance machines and systems.
      The complete list of sponsors and co-sponsors will be
      available at a later time.
      (Previous conferences' sponsors included: CSREA,
      the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the
      Environment - DOE, The International Association for
      Mathematics and Computers in Simulation, The International
      Technology Institute (ITI), The Java High Performance
      Computing research group, World Scientific and Engineering
      Society, Sundance Digital Signal Processing Inc., the
      Computer Vision Research and Applications Tech., The Korea
      Information Processing Society (KIPS), Information Processing
      Society of Japan (SIGMPS/IPSJ), ...)
