Manny Lehman to Receive the 2003 Stevens Award

September 1, 2003 

                Manny Lehman to Receive the 2003 Stevens Award

Amsterdam, The Netherlands -- Professor Meir M (Manny) Lehman of Middlesex University 
(London, England) has been named the recipient of the 9th international Stevens Award 
and will give the 2003 Stevens Lecture on Software Development Methods. 

His lecture, titled "Software Evolution - Cause or Effect?", will be given on 
Wednesday afternoon, September 24, 2003 at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts 
and Sciences in Amsterdam, Netherlands, hosted by the International Conference on 
Software Maintenance (ICSM). 

"Manny Lehman discovered that the development and evolution of software is governed 
by laws, a discovery that he and generations of researchers have validated and 
extended. For more than half the total lifetime of computer software, he has 
championed the idea that software, though a creation of mankind, must be understood 
as a natural phenomenon. He has inspired researchers, illuminated the nature of 
computing, and profoundly influenced the ways that software is both understood and 
created." according to Nicholas Zvegintzov, Chief Technical Officer of the Software 
Management Network (USA). 

The Chair of the Stevens selection committee, Elliot Chikofsky of Engineering 
Management and Integration (USA), explains, "Throughout his career, Professor Lehman 
has led our understanding of how software evolves and what lessons we can learn from 
the process, not just from the result. His recognition and communication of 
underlying principles has influenced, taught, and inspired many waves of 
practitioners and researchers in software maintenance, development tools, and 
process improvement."

Extending the deadline of WeB 2003 to September 10

Due to a typhoon in Taiwan, the web server for WeB 2003 went down
yesterday, the paper due date.  In addition, we received several requests
for a few days of extension.  In consideration of both factors, we are
extending the Workshop for e-Business 2003 ( deadline to
Wednesday, Septermber 10.

WeB 2003 is the Second Workshop on e-Business, a pre-ICIS workshop
sponsored by AIS SIGeBIZ and a number of universities.  The workshop will
be held in December 13-14, 2003, Seattle, U.S.A.  The theme of the
workshop is "Web Services: A New Paradigm of e-Business", but the workshop
seeks a broad coverage of topics - technical and managerial articles
related to e-businesses are encouraged.  Papers may develop e-business
theory, study e-business systems design, present empirical examination of
hypothesis, or present a visionary prospectus.

High-quality papers from the workshop will be invited to submit to the
sepcial issues of "Information Systems and e-Business" and "International
Journal of e-Business".

The following events are being planned for the workshop:

1) Professor Andy Whinston will be the open keynote speaker.  He will give
his far-reaching insight on the state of research in e-Business.

2) Dr. Joseph Williams, Chief Technology Strategist of Sun Microsystems
and a world renown speaker in web services, has agreed to give a keynote
presentation at the workshop.

3) Mr. Kerry McGowne, Director of the Platform Strategy of Microsoft, has
agreed to give a keynote speech at the workshop.

WQW: Submission Deadline Sep. 15th

1st Web Services Quality Workshop (WQW'2003), Rome, December 13th

In conjunction with 4th International Conference on Web Information 
Systems Engineering Conference (WISE'2003)

Web Services is an emerging technology driven by the will to securely 
expose business logic beyond the firewall. Through Web services 
companies can encapsulate existing business processes, publish them as 
services, and let other companies access these services. However, from 
a customer point of view, there may be hundreds of similar Web Services
 to choose from making it difficult to make a decision. This necessity 
is being covered by specialist directories and Web Service brokerages 
becoming available. These brokerages give you additional information 
about your Web Service or Web Service provider to enabling you to make 
an informed decision. This information will need to include quality 
criteria that assess the quality of the service, the readiness of the 
WS provider, the degree of engagement of the provider or the latency 
of the service just to mention a few. This workshop aims at promoting 
all the areas related to the quality of the web services by giving to 
the researchers of the area the opportunity of sharing their works and 
a place for discussion.

Submissions are invited, but not limited, to the following topics: 
definition, automation and validation of web service quality metrics, 
web services modelling, UDDI enhancements, instrumentation of Web 
services for QoS,  agent-based Web service architecture as a means of 
providing QoS attributes, QoS models, computation of web processes QoS 
based on web services QoS, semantic description of web services QoS
