2007-02-06 : AAYAAM 2007: The annual technical symposium organized by the students of CSE Dept., is announced . AAYAAM was previously known as SecNet. Aayaam 2007 will be held from 16th-18th March, 2007. It will be a workshop on the NextGen Web; the theme being Service Oriented Architecture and Web Services. Visit AAYAAM-07 for details.

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.

Focus Areas

  • Service Oriented Architecture(SOA)
  • Web-service standards and Protocols
  • Semantic Web and Ontologies(OWL)
  • Performance, Resource sharing and load balancing
  • Technologies: Web 2.0, SAAS, Mash-Ups
  • Protocols: SOAP REST
  • Convergence of SOA and Sementic Web
  • Security issues in SOA
