Keynote speakers

Gustavo Alonso

Gustavo Alonso is professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). Gustavo Alonso holds degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from the Madrid Technical University (1989) and in computer science (M.S. 1992, Ph.D. 1994) from the University of California at Santa Barbara. After graduating, he was a visiting scientist in the IBM Almaden Research Laboratory in San Jose, California. Currently, Gustavo Alonso leads the Information and Communication Systems Research Group. The research interests of the group include Web Services, grid and cluster computing, databases, workflow management, scientific applications of database and workflow technology (for geographic, astronomical, and biochemical data), pervasive computing and dynamic aspect oriented programming. Gustavo Alonso is co-author of a recently published book on Web Services (Springer Verlag, Berlin 2004, ISBN 3-540-44008-9) and has participated in numerous conferences, panels and projects related to the topic.

Frank Leymann

Frank Leymann is a full professor of computer science and director of the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests include service oriented computing, workflow- and business process management, transaction processing, and architecture patterns.
Before taking over as a professor, Frank worked for two decades for IBM Software Group building database and middleware products. During that time, he built tools that support conceptual and physical database design for DB2; built performance prediction and monitoring tools for an object database system; co-architected a repository system; built both, a universal relation system as well as a complex object database system on top of DB2; and was co-architect of the MQSeries family. In parallel to that, Frank has worked continuously since the late 1980s on workflow technology and has become the father of IBM's workflow product set.
He was appointed IBM Distinguished Engineer in 2000 and elected member of the IBM Academy of Technology in 1994. As member of the IBM Software Group Architecture Board he contributed to the architecture and strategy of IBM's entire middleware stack as well as IBM's On Demand Computing strategy. From 2000 on, Frank works as co-architect of the Web Service stack. He is co-author of many Web Service specifications, including WSFL, WS-Addressing, WS-Metadata Exchange, WS-Business Agreement, and the WS-Resource Framework set of specifications; together with Satish Thatte, he was the driving force behind BPEL4WS.
Frank published many papers in journals and proceedings, co-authored three text books, and holds a multitude of patents especially in the area of workflow management and transaction processing. He served on program committees and organization committees of many international conferences, and he is editor-in-chief or associated editor of a couple of journals.

Conference program

Day 1, Tuesday September 6, 2005

9:00 - 9:30 Opening
9:30 - 10:30 Keynote talk: Gustavo Alonso
Title: Turning Processes into Mature Programming Tools
Abstract: Business processes and workflows are gaining relevance as development tools in a wide variety of applications (Service Oriented Architectures, Enterprise Application integration, Grid Computing, etc.). Some of the most important limitations of business processes have been resolved by the advent of technologies like Web services and containers (J2EE, .NET) which greatly simplify both the design of the undelying system and the deployment of processes. Yet, there are still a number of old problems and several new ones that still prevent the widespread adoption of business processes as an accepted development paradigm. These include the management of data (one of the major weaknesses of business processes), dealing with new data formats (streams, RSS feeds, standardized XML forms), exception handling, debugging, and the complete software life cycle of processes. In general, these problems have the same root: the failure to see processes as a programming paradigm with all that this implies (semantics, programming constructs, compilers, efficient execution, data types, etc.). In this talk, I would describe how some of the recent technological developments have influenced business process management and discuss what still needs to be done to turn processes into a useful programming paradigm.

Title: Flow Technology as Commodity
Abstract: We will briefly review the origin, evolution and direction of Web services and the role flow technology plays in that stack. The concept of "utility computing" and its relation to flow technology is discussed. Conlusions about future thinking about IT are drawn. Selective areas from flow technology that need more attention to meet users' expectations are sketched.
