    ICWS 2004 Call for Papers 
    ---------------------------------------------------------- 
    
    ICWS is a forum for researchers and industry practitioner to
exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art research
and practice of Web Services, to identify emerging research topics, and
to define the future directions of Web Services computing. ICWS 2004 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 industry application
areas that are of interest 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) was held
at the Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 23 - 26, 2003,
attracting hundreds of participants from 25 countries (USA, India,
France, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, Canada, UK,
Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea,
Thailand, Finland, Austria, New Zealand, Poland, and Turkey). ICWS'03
has proven to be an excellent catalyst for research and collaboration.
With the growing interests of Web Services in both business and
scientific information management practice, we fully expect that ICWS
2004 will continue this success. The program of ICWS'04 will feature a
variety of papers on fundamentals, infrastructure, technology support,
and business management for Web Services. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to, the following: 
    - Mathematical foundations of Web Services 
    - Data Management Issues in Web Services 
    - Frameworks for building Web Service applications 
    - Composite Web Service creation and enabling infrastructures
