September 9-10, Boston, Massachusetts

Integrate 2003 aims to teach attendees about corporate asset strategies,
measuring the ROI of IT integration projects and working with system
integration problems as budgets diminish. IT executives, managers and
decision makers are all invited to attend. Integrate 2003 will be held
September 9-10, in Boston.

Sun's chief technical officer, Greg Papadopoulos, will provide the
event's main keynote with the presentation, "The Theory of Networked
Everything." This topic will examine popular tendencies in network
computing architecture and technology, with a focus on the important
changes occurring in software development and deployment models as a
result of dramatic network growth.

The conference will also hold a forum that will look into the wide area
of integration technology and how that technology must constantly
undergo change. The current technologies -- such as enterprise
architecture, Web Services and grid computing -- will be a focus, as
well as potential future technologies.

Other highlights scheduled to take place at the conference include:

- How to integrate the applications currently in use with others that
are needed, on-time and on-budget

- Focus on the integration technologies your enterprise needs: Web
Services, XML/SOAP, C#/.Net, Java[TM] technology, UML,
componentware, distributed objects and CORBA

- Two tracks of technical presentations on design and development
techniques in enterprise and Internet computing, and the
world-class applications they produce
