Background and Goals

"A Web service is a software application identified by a URI, whose interfaces and bindings are capable of being defined, described, and discovered as XML artifacts. A Web service supports direct interactions with other software agents using XML based messages exchanged via internet-based protocols" [W3C].

Technologies such as eXtensible Markup Language (XML), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) support Web Services. XML is utilized to normalize the exchange of business data among trading partners by providing an excellent means for encoding and formatting.  SOAP defines a simple way to package information and send it across system boundaries. WSDL is an XML language for describing Web Services, enabling one to separate the description of the abstract functionality offered by a service from concrete details of a service description. UDDI enables businesses to quickly, easily, and dynamically find and transact with one another. Major industries such as IBM, Microsoft, BEA, Sun, Oracle etc use these standards. Development of real-life applications relies heavily on the system model and architectures through which this set of technologies are efficiently implemented. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in Web Services to discuss how to develop real-life applications on the Web.

This workshop covers the areas of modeling, architectures and infrastructures for Web Services.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

- Web Services Modeling

- The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and Web Services

- Web Services and Semantic Description

- Ontologies for Web Services

- Web Services Architecture

- Frameworks for Building Web Service Applications

- Composite Web Service Creation and Enabling Infrastructures

- Web Service Discovery

- Solution and Resource Management for Web Services

- Dynamic Invocation Mechanisms for Web Services

- Quality of Service for Web Services

- SOAP and UDDI Enhancements

- Case Studies for Web Services

- E-Commerce Applications Using Web Services

- Workflow and Web Services

- Transaction and Web Services

- Web Services Interoperability
