I'm moderating a user panel at XML & Web Services 2004 conference in London next week. This is shaping up to be an excellent event, under new management this year by the folks from Information Age/Infoconomy. There are some great speakers Bob Sutor from IBM, BEA's new CTO Mark Carges, Graham Glass from webMethods and not only Gordon van Huizen but also Dave Chappell from Sonic, plus notables from HP, IONA, SAP, SeeBeyond, Tibco, Vordel and others. Two users Kevin Poulter from British American Tobacco and Stephan Madlung from Lufthansa will be presenting their experiences as early adopters of SOA, and they will join me for the panel on Thursday afternoon along with Martin Yates from Deutsche Bank and Yonadav Yuval from General Motors.
I'm aiming to be there for most of the two days, so I look forward to meeting anyone who's coming along and free to chat.
To welcome this new event, Loosely Coupled has resurrected its events calendar, which had been dormant for a year or so. It's now being updated on a regular basis. Readers are welcome to help us make it as comprehensive as possible: if you know of any SOA or BPM conferences and tradeshows that aren't listed, please feel free to submit them for inclusion.
