October 15, 2008 : Camera-Ready Papers and Registration
November 24-26, 2008 : Conference


Barely more than ten years after the birth of the World Wide Web, the Global
Information Infrastructure is daily reality. In spite of the many applications
in all domains of our societies: e-business, e-commerce, e-learning, e-science,
and e-government, for instance, and in spite of the tremendous advances by
engineers and scientists, the seamless integration of information and services
remains a major challenge. The current shared vision for the future is one of
semantically-rich information and service oriented architecture for global
information systems. This vision is at the convergence of progress in technologies
such as XML, Web services, RDF, OWL, of multimedia, multimodal, and multilingual
information retrieval, and of distributed, mobile and ubiquitous computing.

The goal of iiWAS'2008 is to provide an international forum for scientists,
engineers, and managers in academia, industry, and government to address
recent research results and to present and discuss their ideas, theories,
technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences
on all theoretical and practical issues arising in information and service


Conference program will include invited talks, peer reviewed technical
program, demos, short papers, posters, tutorials, panels, workshops and
invited sessions on the same or related topics, industrial presentations,
exhibitions around but not limited to the following topics:
