Bertrand Meyer - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) and Eiffel Software, Switzerland
Wednesday 17.12.2003 17:30--18:30 Cantine Ferrari

Title: Contracts and concurrency for Web services
Abstract: Web services offer the an attractive prospect of turning the World-Wide Web into the computing and service platform of the future. In spite of all the excitement around this notion, little is known about the appropriate techniques for programming Web service applications; the usual issues of concurrency and, more generally, software engineering still arise, only magnified by the scale of the resources involved. This talk analyzes some of the principal problems of Web service programming and presents elements of a concerted solution, based on Web standards (WSDL, SOAP), Design by Contract as present in Eiffel, and the SCOOP concurrency mechanism.
Biography: Bertrand Meyer is Professor of Software Engineering at ETH Zürich, founder of Eiffel Software, and adjunct professor at Monash University. His books include "Object-Oriented Software Construction", "Reusable Software", "Introduction to the Theory of Programming Languages" and "Eiffel: The Language".

Frank Leymann - IBM Software Group, Germany
Thursday 18.12.2003 9:30--10:30

Title: Jump Onto The Bus: A Guided Tour To The WS-* Landscape
Web Services: Distributed Applications without Limits
Abstract: We will take a look at the plethora of proposed standards for Web service technology. By adopting the guiding principle that providing a platform for loosely coupled distributed applications is the ultimate goal we show how (most of) these standars fit together.
Biography: Dr. Leymann is an IBM Distinguished Engineer and a member of the IBM Academy of Technology. He is the chief architect of IBM's workflow technology, and a member of the IBM Application Integration Middleware (AIM) Architecture Board that sets the overall direction of IBM's middleware. He has worked on database systems, database tools, and transaction processing. Dr. Leymann has published many papers in various journals and conference proceedings, filed a multitude of patents, and is the coauthor of textbooks on repositories and workflow systems. He served on program committees and organization committees for many international conferences and is editor of the journal of the database management system special interest group of the German computer society Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI).
