This will be great event for learning how SOA supports composability.
For the event home page :
" This exciting two-day event will explore the advantages of applying Service-Oriented Architecture techniques for assembling and tuning applications developed on different platforms and managed by different owners. You'll learn how others are addressing challenges, share your own viewpoints, compare notes, make connections, and explore why open standards are critical to success.
This year's event opens with keynote addresses from Peter Carbone, Vice President—Service Oriented Architecture at Nortel and Douglas Shoupp, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP; and will close with an interactive panel where industry vendors and practitioners come together to discuss SOA within vertical industries.

I am presenting "lightweight" composability using Mashup.
There are two different types of enterprise IT projects in Web 2.0 and SOA : systematic , long term projects which gives conservative reliability, whereas opportunistic, short term projects (or “situational applications”) using "lightweight" compositin of services are for competitive agility. Mashups fit into the later one.
Please attend the presentation with lotz of questions. I promise to make it as interactive as possible.
