We acknowledge the efforts of all those who have made this event a big success.
The NextGen Web is here, are you prepared?
Web 2.0, a phrase coined by O'Reilly Media in 2004, refers to a perceived or proposed second generation of Web-based services—such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies—that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users. It refers to the transition of websites from isolated information silos to sources of content and functionality, thus becoming computing platforms serving web applications to end-users.
Some of the distinguishing features of Web 2.0 are:
- The Web as a platform
- Data as the driving force
- Harnessing collective intelligence to ceate content like Wikipedia, blogging, online bookmarks.
- Innovation in assembly of systems and sites composed by pulling together features from distributed, independent developers
- Lightweight business models enabled by content and service syndication
- The end of the software adoption cycle ("the perpetual beta")
Towards the Next Generation Web, CSE, IITB brings forth Aayaam, a technical symposium on SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) and Semantic Web. The Web as we have known it has been undergoing tremendous ferment over the last few years. The lack of a functional view of the web has spawned web services and the lack of meaning lead to the emergence of the Semantic Web.
The evolution of these technologies allow sharing of computational power and has enabled development of modular, integrated, complex but user friendly web. We bring together experts across the country from industry and academia working in the field of SOA and semantic web to provide an integrated view of their experiences and research.
Aayaam is the 8th in the series of workshops held at Computer Science & Engineering Department, IITB. Aayaam this year examines the evolution of Next Generation Web. Since 1999, CSE has been orgainizing this workshop as SecNet, a leading event for professionals in the software industry and academia focussing on Network Security. Previous workshops have had participants from IBM, Microsoft, Indian Navy, National Stock Exchange(NSE), TCS, Patni Computers, VSSC(Vikram Sarabhai Space Center), RedHat India, and various academic institutions across the country.
