ECOWS 2010 - The 8th IEEE European Conference on Web Services

Call for Research Papers

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 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 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 list:

Research Paper Submission Guidelines

Original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be submitted at EasyChair Research Papers. Submissions should be formatted according to the IEEE proceedings guidelines and they should not be exceed 8 pages. The conference proceedings are expected to be published by IEEE as in previous years.
