VLDB-TES'2005 is the sixth workshop in a successful series of annual workshops on technologies for E-Services, which have been held in conjunction with the International Conference on Very Large Data Bases.


The next generation of applications will be developed in form of services that are offered over a network, either a company's intranet or the Internet. Service-based architectures depend on an infrastructure that allows service providers to describe and advertise their services and service consumers to discover and select the services that best fulfill their requirements. Frameworks and messaging protocols for e-services in stationary and mobile environments are being developed and standardized, metadata and ontologies are being defined, and mechanisms are under development for service composition, delivery, monitoring, and payment. End-to-end security and quality of service guarantees will be essential for the acceptance of e-services. As e-services become pervasive, e-service management will play a central role.


The workshop's objective is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present new developments and experience reports. The goal of the TES workshop is to identify the technical issues, models and infrastructures that enable enterprises to provide e-services to other businesses and individual customers. Therefore, we will include industry sessions on various key application areas to be presented by distinguished invited speakers.




We invite researchers, industry practitioners, and users who are exploring foundations, developing systems and applications, and using E-Service and Web Service systems to share their ideas, results, and experiences. We invite submissions related (but not limited to) to one or more of the following topics:
