Alternate Tracks

  • Web Services

  • With expanding acceptance among software vendors and increasing adoption in the marketplace, Web services are posed to become the basis for the next generation of distributed systems. Already moving beyond its SOAP, WSDL and UDDI origins, new specifications have been proposed to incorporate security, transactions, orchestration and choreography, grid computing capabilities, business documents and processes, etc, some of which are already undergoing standardization. At the same time new Web services solutions for enterprise application integration, business to business e-commerce and e-science are being deployed in production environments.

    Beyond the marketing hype and the flurry of new proposals, Web services respond to important architectural changes in the way information technology is delivered and managed. Universal interoperability among vendors, the delivery of software as a service, and automated, just-in-time application integration inside and across organizational boundaries are some key ideas that underlie the Web services vision of distributed computing.

    The WWW2004 Web Services track is aimed at researchers, developers, architects, and users of Web services who are dealing with next-generation Web Services systems. We invite them to share their experiences, results, and contributions of any kind, which may help better understand the promise and reality of Web service computing.

    Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Security, transactions, and manageability
    • Registries and discovery
    • Service intermediaries and routing
    • Orchestration, choreography, composition of services
    • Evolution and adoption of core Web services standards: SOAP, WSDL, UDDI
    • Application of semantics to Web services
    • Web Services application case studies
