Call For Papers

ECOWS 2009: The 7th European Conference on Web Services

November 9-11, 2009, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

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 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 2009 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
* Web Services and Business Process Management
* 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 2009 Proceedings
with IEEE Computer Society Press. Technical papers must be conform to the
IEEE paper guidelines which will be made available at the ECOWS 2009 web
page. Submit your paper in PDF or Postscript format via the electronic
submission system which will be made available via the ECOWS 2009 web site.
