Call for Papers

ECOWS 2007: The 5th European Conference on Web Services
November 26-28,2007 in Halle (Saale), Germany

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 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 adopt service-oriented architectures, they
can evolve during their lifespan more easily and better adapt to
changing or 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 customers no longer need to
"choose their side."  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 the use of dependable services and
service-oriented applications.

Topics of Interest:

The ECOWS 2007 program committee seeks high quality papers related to
all aspects of Web Services, which constitute the current main
technology available for implementing service-oriented architectures and
computing. Topics of interest to the Research Track include, but are not
limited to, the following:

     * Life-Cycle of Web Services Implementations
     * Dynamic Web Services
     * Semantic Web Services
     * Economics and Web Services
     * Quality Requirements for Web Services
     * Web Services for Grids
     * Web Services in a Service-Oriented Environment
     * Web Services and Mobility
     * Frameworks for Building Web Service-Based Applications
     * Formal Methods for Web Services

Research Paper Submission Guidelines:

We solicit papers with a maximum of 10 pages, containing new material.
Submissions must be in English, must be original, and must not have been
submitted for publication elsewhere. There will be an award for the best
paper and best student paper. Submissions should be made through the

As in the previous years, we plan to publish the ECOWS 2007 Proceedings
with IEEE Computer Society Press. Technical papers must be conform to
the IEEE paper guidelines. Submit your paper in PDF or Postscript format
via the electronic submission system which will be made available via
the ECOWS 2007 web site.
