Original announcement:

In the last years the “TeKoMed”-Workshops have been a great opportunity to get in touch with develop
To preserve the opportunity of exchange about recently finished, currently ongoing and future research and development around the field of embedded web services but also to foster discussion within the community, we want to continue the workshop series. The idea remains the same, however location and name will change.ers, scientists and industry in the fields of the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS), information technology in medical applications and related areas of interest. However, the TeKoMed project was successfully concluded and consequently no similar event will be organized by the former project partners.

The first WS4D-workshop will take place on November, 29th very likely take place on November, 29th and – depending on the feedback – November, 30th (see below) .

As a rough agenda, we plan the following sessions:

3. Future work / projects (aka What is next?)

Depending on the amount of feedback and submissions, the workshop is supposed to last one or two days. Everybody is invited to give insight into their work in a short (or long) presentation to raise discussion and scientific exchange.

Please let us know if you plan to join the workshop and if you plan to give a short (or long) presentation by November, 8th. Also, please feel free to forward this invitation to whoever you consider might be interested.

How to get there

By car

Assuming, that you are using a satnav, come exactly here:

At that point, you will face a barrier. Call Guido or Sebastian, so they can open the barrier for you. Park your car somewhere and watch for signs guiding you to the workshop.

By public transportation from Rostock

Depending on where you stay, get on a tram to Holbeinplatz (lines 1, 4 or 5) or Hauptbahnhof (lines 4, 5 or 6).

From one of those tram stations, find the next train station (always easy to find) and catch S1 or S2 bound for Warnemünde.

Get off at “Warnemünde Werft”.

Pass the pedestrians’ tunnel to the other side of the tracks.

Follow these directions (google maps is quite a bit out-of-date here): http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=212683518257885974193.0004ce6129a4bdf36c49f
