The Main Conference

The Conference provides a forum for the presentation of mature research
results that fit the general theme "Objects, Components, Architectures,
Services and Applications for a Networked World". Special emphasis will
be given to the practical applicability and evaluation of reported
results. Research papers will be fully reviewed. In addition to the
technical program, the conference will include keynote talks by
internationally well-known experts and panel discussions.

This years NODe will cover five main topics:

    - Object-oriented technologies and concepts
    - Component-based approaches and Software Product Lines
    - Agent technology , Database Systems, Exchange Formats,
      Middleware and the Web
    - Knowledge Management for the Internet
    - Application and Challenges in E-Business and E-Government

Besides research papers, we strongly encourage submissions from industry
and public sector epresentatives engaged in E-Government projects.
Our special interest is in state-of-the-art applications under
industrial conditions and finished or on-going case studies. A full
review of these papers will be the rule. However, we also offer
industrial and public-sector participants the opportunity to indicate
that they want to present/publish without going through the full review
process. In this case, the NODe-PC will apply an application-oriented
quality and interest check to ensure high standards and provide an
opportunity to present/publish in specially marked sessions/sections of
the proceedings.

Conference languages are both German and English. However, we strongly
encourage submissions and talks in English to allow our international
guests to attend the presentations.

Since NODe is dedicated to the exchange of research ideas it will host
an exciting variety of high-level workshops. These workshops provide a
forum for highly focused meetings, dealing with the specific topics
and interests of the participants. Papers should be submitted directly
to the workshop of your choice. All submissions will be fully reviewed
by specialized workshop PCs. Accepted workshop-papers will be presented
in special tracks of the NODe main conference and will be published in
the official conference proceedings and on CD. Outstanding workshop
papers will be included in an extra best of proceedings that will be
published with a major publishing company.


The conference will offer a full day of tutorials from renowned experts
in the fields. Tutorials will take place on the special tutorial day
(Monday, Sep. 22).

Young Researcher Workshop

NODe will continue to offer young researchers a forum to present to and
discuss their ideas with a highly interested audience and well-known


All papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be
published by a well-known publishing company (probably by Springer in
LNCS) and on a conference CD.

Conference History and Guiding Principles

Ever-evolving and increasingly powerful information and communication
technologies have substantially changed the nature of global
relationships, sources of competitive advantage and opportunities for
economic and social development. The Internet, portable
computers/devices and wireless communication technologies have turned
the globe into an interconnected network of individuals, firms,
organizations, and governments communicating and interacting with each
other through a variety of channels.

Net.ObjectDays (NODe) is one of the main international conferences that
focus on object-oriented and internet-based technologies, concepts,
services, and applications. It is the integrative successor of the well
known JavaDays, STJA, and JIT conferences and is organized in this
format for the fourth time. It puts strong emphasis on the active
exchange of concepts and technologies between academia and industry.
Continuing in this tradition, this year's NODe will offer the
opportunity to meet and work with leaders from research and industry.

NODe 2003 especially focuses on topics such as object-oriented
(distributed) technologies, concepts and systems, component-based
approaches and software product lines, agent-related technologies,
knowledge management for the Internet, advanced database systems and
the Web, quality, security, and reliability issues for all kinds of
E-Business, specifically for E-Government and B2B E-Commerce, including
both the engineering and use of web-based applications. As systems ought
to be engineered well to be able to cope with the influx of the
above-mentioned technologies in a positive way, the integrative factor
of software architectures and component-driven technologies (especially
their demands with regards to structures (patterns and architectures)
and processes (enhanced life-cycles and workflows)) form additional
focuses of NODe 2003. However, as in the years before, NODe will be open
to questions and aspects of object-oriented and Internet-based
technology in general and invites submissions related to a wide variety
of topics in these areas.
