USM 2000 - Last Announcement and Call for Papers
3rd IFIP/GI International Conference on Trends towards a Universal Service Market
USM 2000 is the third event in a series of international IFIP conferences on Trends in Distributed Systems. It continues TreDS'96, held in Aachen, Germany and TrEC'98 with special focus on Electronic Commerce in Hamburg, Germany.
The technological progress in the internet and telecommunication domains as well as deregulation efforts of the telecommunication markets currently under way in many countries enable an integration of data and telecommunication. Distributed platforms get adapted to the needs of telecommunication networks. This leads to a global distributed system with millions of objects, running on top of middleware platforms and interacting with each other to provide services. USM 2000 brings together researchers, service vendors and users in the field of universal service markets. USM 2000 takes place in Munich, Germany, the city of the famous Oktoberfest, which will start two days after the conference on September 16, 2000.
The USM 2000 considers services of a universal market in relation to middleware, distributed applications and management. Areas of special interest include:
