        EuroWeb 2002: 2nd European World Wide Web Conference
        The Web and the GRID: from e-science to e-business

                         17-18 December 2002
                   St Anne's College, Oxford, UK


    Conference Chair: Prof. Michael Wilson, W3C UK and Ireland Office
    Programme Chair: Dr. Brian Matthews, CLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

The conference theme is intended to prompt debate on convergence of
developments pioneered for e-science on the GRID and web services
in order to provide business applications. The communities who identify with
the web, the GRID, Web Services, Grid Services and Semantic Web should
not be isolated from each other, but need to come together to unify
their approaches to meet the real needs of information, data and
knowledge technology users.

EuroWeb 2002 will be a major international forum at which research on
GRIDs and Web Services is presented. EuroWeb 2002 follows on from the
success of the EuroWeb 2001, which was held in Pisa in December, 2001
on the topic of the web in public administration.


The conference seeks original contributions on, but not limited to,
the following topics:

    * Agents
    * Applications of Web Services
    * Applications of GRID services
    * Authentication and Authorisation Services
    * Beyond SOAP: Web Services Invocation Framework
    * Bootstrapping, growth and economic models
    * Case Studies
    * Computational Economy
    * Database technologies
    * Data/Information/Knowledge integration, mediation and storage
    * Digital libraries, publishing, and e-Books
    * Distributed file sharing
    * Distributed computation
    * e-business and large-scale knowledge management

Society Electronic Workshops in Computing (eWiC). The British
Computer Society guarentee that the electronic publication will be
freely available on the web for at least 10 years, and accessible as a
resource registered with an ISBN number.


Papers are sought in two categories: 

1). research papers: should describe original research, a
survey/overview of areas of research, or tool, system and application
descriptions relevant to the theme of the conference.  When printed in 
the prescibed format, research papers should not exceed 10 pages.

2). position papers: should consist of brief statements of the authors'
position w.r.t. some aspect of the theme of the conference, or describe work
in progress of sufficient maturity to warrent attention. When printed in
