***Sky Captain and the Service Oriented Architecture Reference Model of 
Presentation & Discussion, by Duane Nickull    (06)

Abstract:    (07)

This presentation is divided into two distinct parts, the latter 
building of the first. Session one is designed to promote a discussion 
around what Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) really is. Many people 
are talking about SOA and most define it by relating it to a concrete 
implementation such as web services. The session justifies a new 
approach chartered by the OASIS SOA Reference Model Technical Committee 
to define SOA abstract of any specific implementation. If SOA is 
architecture, as the name implies, it must be definable as architecture 
and distinct from other architectural models. A look at some of the 
basic concepts and common elements of all SOA's and a preliminary 
attempt to distill out those elements into a SOA reference model will 
likely be a stimulating topic. Ontologist's point of view will be 
appreciated.    (08)

The second topic addresses the world of tomorrow. There is a lot of talk 
about what SOA can enable and what ontological work may enable. The 
second session invokes thoughts of a world where both concepts are 
ubiquitous and looks at what is possible by adding in other concepts 
such as Event - Causality programming, the Blackboard AI pattern over a 
distributed SOA infrastructure and how mechanical intelligence could be 
bestowed upon applications that someday may acquire true cognitive 
capabilities.    (09)
