October 22-23 the SOA Symposium 2009 will be hosted in the World Trade Center – Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Besides the Second Annual International SOA Symposium, the International Cloud Symposium will be launched at the same time, as a bonus co-located conference. There will be over 80 speakers including recognized thought leaders, such as Thomas Erl, Grady Booch, Anne Thomas Manes, Joe McKendrick, David Chappell, Dirk Krafzig, Jim Webber, Nicolai Josuttis, Paul Brown, Mark Little, Clemens Utschig, and Torsten Winterberg.The theme of the symposium – Next Generation SOA – is explained by Thomas Erl in SOA Magazine of April 2009 :
Next Generation SOA represents how the evolution of service-oriented computing has reached a point where we have not just mature technology platforms and sophisticated modern service technology innovations at our disposal, but also proven practices, patterns, principles, and a clear vision of the target state represented by service-oriented computing.
During the symposium the latest title – Next Generation SOA: A Real-World Guide to Modern Service-Oriented Computing – in The Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series will be launched.
SOA Manifesto announcement
This event is chosen by leading SOA experts as the location at which the SOA Manifesto will be finalized and, for the first time, announced. The SOA Manifesto is:
A formal declaration of the principles, intentions and ambitions of service-orientation and the service-oriented architectural model.
This announcement will be video recorded and the video file, along with the first draft of the SOA Manifesto, will be published on this site. The final manifesto may be entitled the “Next Generation SOA Manifesto”. Which perfectly fits the theme of the SOA Symposium.
