2004 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2004)
==============================================================
Theme: Convergence of Web Services, Grid Computing, e-Business and Autonomic
Computing
July 6-9, 2004, San Diego, California, USA
http://conferences.computer.org/icws/2004/

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Community for Services
Computing (TCSC)

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  (e.g.,
workflow technology)

ICWS 2004 Industrial Program - Call For Extended Abstracts
----------------------------------------------------------

The industrial track of ICWS 2004 will be the forum for high quality
presentations on innovative commercial and industrial software for all
facets of web services.  These include significant applications leveraging
web services, standards for web services, business-to-business applications,
application integration, business process integration and management,
content management, composite web services, multimedia communication, and
benchmarking.  Submissions that do not relate to marketplace trends,
industry standards, commercial software (or industrial-strength prototypes)
are discouraged.  You are welcome to send email with any questions you might
have as you prepare your submission to either of the industrial program
co-chairs: 

   Roger Barga (barga@microsoft.com) or Sinisa Zimek (sinisa.zimek@sap.com)


Authors should submit an extended abstract (5 pages maximum) with the same
formatting rules as research papers.  Unlike research track, minimal or no
reviews of submissions will be provided to authors during notification.
Acceptance criteria will be innovativeness of software and the potential of
impact.  Please send industrial program submissions by e-mail to the
following industrial program co-chair: 

   Sinisa Zimek (sinisa.zimek@sap.com)

to arrive by 5 p.m. US Pacific Standard Time on February 2nd, 2004.
Submissions that exceed the 5 page limit or arrive after the February 2nd
deadline may be rejected without further consideration.

allocated for the tutorial is 4 hours.

The length of tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages including the
short biographies of tutorial presenters. They should be submitted to the
tutorial program chair by email to J. Leon Zhao at lzhao@bpa.arizona.edu on
or before Friday, March 5, 2004.  If you need to submit materials in
hardcopy, please send to:
