Many conferences have been regularly organized worldwide each year. The organizing process consists of sequences of major activities involving several distant participants. The characteristic of the conference management process, therefore, suits the solution of distributed system. To enhance loose coupling, the cooperative activities could be implemented as services. However, the orchestration of these service operations is not conducted. This paper presents an approach to developing the conference management system using service oriented architecture fused with the notion of business process modeling. The innovation of Workflow Services, which is the integration of web services implemented by Windows Workflow Communication Foundation and workflows developed by Windows Workflow Foundation, is selected for the system implementation. The method reflects the added values of interoperability and reusability of the implemented system.
