Call for Research, Industry, and PhD Symposium Papers
-----------------------------------------------------------------

The 8th European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS 2010)
December 1-3, 2010
Ayia Napa, Cyprus


The European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS) 
is the premier conference for both researchers 
and practitioners to exchange the latest advances 
in the state of the art and practices of Web 
services. The main objectives of this conference 
are to facilitate the exchange between 
researchers and practitioners and to foster 
future collaborations in Europe and beyond.

The ECOWS 2010 conference will include invited 
speakers, presentations of contributed research 
papers and an industrial track with the 
participation of top researchers in industry. 
ECOWS 2010 will also include a PhD symposium and 
satellite workshops.


Background
-------------

The success encountered by the Web has shown that 
tightly coupled software systems are only good 
for niche markets, whereas loosely coupled 
software systems can be more flexible, more 
adaptive and often more appropriate in practice. 
Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system 
to interact with other systems, possibly legacy 
systems that share very little with it. Web 
services are at the crossing of distributed 
computing and loosely coupled systems. When 
applications are developed with service-oriented 
architectures, they can evolve more easily during 
their lifespan and adapt better to changing or 
even unpredictable environments. When properly 
implemented, services can be discovered and 
invoked dynamically using non-proprietary 
mechanisms, while each service can still be 
implemented in a black-box manner. This is 
important from a business perspective since each 
service can be implemented using any technology, 
independently of the others. What matters is that 
everybody agrees on the integration technology, 
and there is a consensus about this in today's 
middleware market: Customers want to use Web 
technologies. Despite these promises, however, 
service integrators, developers, and providers 
need to create methods, tools and techniques to 
support cost-effective development and use of 
dependable services and service-oriented 
applications. dame


Topics of interest
---------------------

The ECOWS 2010 program committee seeks original, 
high quality papers related to all aspects of Web 
Services, which constitute the main technology 
available to date for implementing 
service-oriented architectures and computing.

Topics of interest to the Research Track include, 
but are not limited to, the following:

     * Business Process Management and Web Services

product descriptions or product marketing 
information are not within the scope of the 
ECOWS'2010 Industrial Track.


PhD Symposium
------------------

The ECOWS 2010 PhD Symposium is an international 
forum for PhD students working in any of the 
areas addressed by the ECOWS conference. The main 
aim of the Symposium is to give PhD students an 
opportunity to present their research activity 
and perspectives, to critically discuss them with 
other PhD students and with established 
researchers in the area, and to get fruitful 
feedback and advices on their research activity.





Submission Guidelines
-------------------------

Original papers, not submitted for publication 
elsewhere, can be submitted via EasyChair

Research papers:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecows2010.

Industry-Track papers:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecowsit10

Submissions should be formatted according to the 
IEEE proceedings guidelines, and they should not 
be exceed 8 pages. The conference proceedings are
