EOOWS (European workshop on Object Orientation and Web Services) brought together the academic and the industrial perspective on Web Services. Specific results presented by the workshop participants and the broad experience of the invited speakers provided the base for a lively discussion on the challenges and potentials of service-oriented computing in relation to object-oriented technologies and methodologies. This report summarises the activities and main threads of discussion within the workshop, as well as the conclusions reached by the participants.
