The 11th International SOA Web Services Edge 2007 East Conference & Expo, to be held June 25-26, 2007 in New York City, announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of Web services and service-oriented architecture.
According to industry analyst firm Gartner Group, by 2008 more than 60 percent of enterprises will use SOA as the guiding principle when creating mission-critical applications and processes. "Businesses that ignore the potential of SOA will find themselves outpaced by rivals who improve their agility and transform themselves into new kinds of enterprises," says Gartner analyst Yafim Natis.
Call for Papers Deadline: January 31, 2007
Topics will include:
Ideal candidates are i-Technology experts who have first-hand experience in the development or implementation of Web services, .NET, MX, or Java applications, XML-based technologies, and service-oriented architectures in general. .NET and Java developers involved in building, deploying, or maintaining Web services and IT/IS management involved in IT integration and related issues are also welcome.
If you have something substantive, challenging, and original to offer, you are encouraged to submit a proposal. In the proposal, please highlight previous speaking engagements including classroom or course work. Please provide at least three references with respect to speaking ability, as well as contact information that will allow us to reach you to evaluate presentation skills. Past speakers do not need to provide references.
