Next Web Programming Models

ABSTRACT
--------

The next generation web group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center is 
exploring the architectural elements that will make up the distributed 
computing platform of the future.  In this I will give a short outline of 
our work in the Next Generation Application platform which proposes a 
unified programming model across both client and server.  I will then 
focus on delivery of the end user experience on the client and talk about 
some of the technologies that will alter the way we interact with 
computers.  I will complete the talk by discussing some of the challenges 
that still need to be addressed in order to realize the vision presented 
during the talk.
