http://www.w3.org/ -- 21 February 2006 -- W3C invites the public to a 
Web Services Seminar entitled "Using Web services: from infrastructure 
to semantics" on 6 March 2006 at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, France.

Focusing on semantic enhancements to Web services applications, this 
free event provides concrete examples of business challenges and how 
they have been resolved through the use of Web Services. W3C Member 
organizations including Amadeus, Canon, France Telecom, and Nokia, are 
to demonstrate solutions already implemented in enterprise environments.

Web Services Are Changing the Way IT Problems Are Approached and Resolved

Web services provide a standard means for software applications running 
on a variety of platforms and frameworks to interoperate. W3C's Web 
Services Activity is designing the infrastructure, defining the 
architecture and creating the core technologies for Web services:

   - A messaging framework with SOAP 1.2, WS-Addressing 1.0 and SOAP 
Message Transmission Optimization (MTOM )
   - Description of services through Web Services Description Language 
2.0 and Web Services Choreography Description Language
   - Addressing larger architectural topics and issues

W3C tested and standardized the essential components of the Web services 
model, ensuring a stable foundation for applications development. Now as 
industry desires more elaborate description capabilities, new work at 
W3C uses semantics on top of these core technologies.

Use Cases and Applications Experience Serve as Starting Point for 
Integrating Semantics

The Web Services and Semantics Seminar demonstrates uses of Web services 
in real world scenarios and promises a look at the use of semantics. 
Presentations on Web services applications are currently planned from 
industry leaders, developers and customers, and from W3C technical 
staff. The event is free to all, including members of the press, but 
requires registration. For your convenience, an online registration form 
is available and is linked from the Seminar home page.

About the Web Services and Semantics (WS2) project

The Web Services and Semantics (WS2) Project (IST-FP6-004308) is a 
specific support action in IST's FP6 framework, running for 2 years, 
from July 2004 to June 2006, in order to promote Web services and work 
on integration of semantics.The goals of the project are to increase the 
awareness of the European community around Web services and Web services 
standards as well as their participation in their development, and to 
start the integration of semantics in Web services. .The WS2 project, 
led by the W3C European host, ERCIM, is supporting the work of outreach 
and technical work for Web Services and Semantic Web Services. The WS2 
project is supported by funding under the Sixth Research Framework 
Programme of the European Union.
