ABOUT ICWS 2006
The 2006 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2006) will be part of the IEEE Computer Society Congress on Software Technology and Engineering Practice (CoSTEP) to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of IEEE Computer Society!
ICWS has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances
in the state of the art and practice of Web Services, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Web Services.
ICWS 2006 is sponsored by
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee
on Services Computing and will be co-located with the
2006 IEEE International Conference on Services
Computing (SCC 2006) and the 30th Annual International Computer Software and Applications Conference
Web services are Internet-based application components published using standard
interface description languages and universally available via uniform
As in the fourth consecutive year, the program of ICWS 2006 will continue to feature
research papers with a wide range of topics, focusing on various aspects
of IT services. Some of the topics include Web services specifications
and enhancements, Web services discovery and integration, Web services security,
Web Services standards and formalizations, Web services modeling, Web services-oriented Software Engineering,
Web services-oriented software testing, Web services-based
applications and solutions, Web services realizations, and semantics in Web services.
As the most prestigious academic conference in the field of Web services,
the First International Conference on Web Services (
ICWS 2003 ) was held at the Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas , Nevada
, June 23 - 26, 2003, attracting hundreds of participants from 25 countries.
2004 was held at Westin Horton Plaza in San Diego , California , July 6-9, 2004. ICWS 2004 attracted about 250 registered
participants from 22 countries and regions.
The joint ICWS 2005 and
SCC 2005 has attracted more than 300 registered
participants. ICWS 2003, ICWS 2004, and ICWS 2005 have proven to be excellent catalysts for research and collaboration,
and we fully expect that this coming ICWS 2006 conference will continue this trend.
The long-term goal of ICWS is to build up a reputable and respectable conference
for the international community. It is very clear that the ICWS belongs
Since Web services is an information technology (IT), ICWS 2006 will continue to put its focus on all aspects of Web services from Computer Science perspective; while SCC 2006 will concentrate on Business Services and the bridging technologies
such as Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and
Management, and Grid and Utility Computing.
