Workshop Background and Goals:

"A Web service is a software application identified by a URI,
whose interfaces and bindings are capable of being defined,
described, and discovered as XML artifacts. A Web service
supports direct interactions with other software agents using
XML based messages exchanged via internet-based protocols" [W3C].

Web Services is basically supported by four technologies XML,
SOAP, WSDL and UDDI. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is
utilized to normalize the exchange of business data among
trading partners by providing an excellent means for data
encoding and data formatting. Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
defines a simple way to package information and send it across
system boundaries. Web Services Description Language (WSDL) is
an XML language for describing Web Services, enabling one to
separate the description of the abstract functionality offered
by a service from concrete details of a service description.
Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) enables
businesses to quickly, easily, and dynamically find and transact
with one another. These standards are backed by the major players
in the industries such as IBM, Microsoft, BEA, Sun and Oracle.
However, only this set of technologies is not sufficient to develop
real applications based on the Web. Development of real-life
applications relies heavily on the system model and architectures
through which this set of technologies are efficiently implemented.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers,
engineers and practitioners interested in Web Services to discuss
how to develop real applications on the Web.

This workshop covers the fields of modeling, architectures and
infrastructures for Web Services.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Web Services Modeling

- The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and Web Services

- Web Services and Semantic Description

- Ontologies for Web Services

- Web Services Architecture

- Frameworks for Building Web Service Applications

- Composite Web Service Creation and Enabling Infrastructures

- Web Service Discovery

- Solution and Resource Management for Web Services

- Dynamic Invocation Mechanisms for Web Services

- Quality of Service for Web Services

- SOAP and UDDI Enhancements

- Case Studies for Web Services

- E-Commerce Applications Using Web Services

- Workflow and Web Services

- Transaction and Web Services

- Web Services Interoperability

Format of the Workshop:

The workshop will consist of oral presentations. The proceedings of
the workshop will be published in the form of a book by ICEIS.

Submission of Papers:

Perspective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the areas
listed above. All papers must be written in English, and the length
of the paper should not exceed 4000 words or 8 pages. Instructions for
