The 4th International Conference of Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC'06)
follows on the success of three previous editions in Amsterdam (2005), New
York City (2004), and Trento (2003). Today ICSOC is recognized as the main
conference for service oriented computing research and covers the entire
spectrum from theoretical and foundational results to empirical
evaluations as well as practical and industrial experiences.

ICSOC'06 seeks original papers in the field of service oriented computing,
from theoretical and foundational results to empirical evaluations as well
as practical and industrial experiences, with an emphasis on contributions
to solve the many still open research problems that are of significant
impact to the field of service oriented applications. Topics include but
are not limited to the following:

* Business Service Modeling: Methods and tools for capturing business
  goals and requirements, Decomposition into business services, Business
  processes, Business policies, Modeling, analysis, and simulation,
  Specification of functional and non-functional quality requirements;

* Service Assembly: Development and Discovery: Model-driven development,
  Service composition architectures, Service registries, Service discovery
  mechanisms, Semantic matching, Methods and tools for service development,
  Governance, Verification and validation, Deployment strategies;

* Service Management: Instrumentation and service related data aggregation,
  end-to-end Measurement, Analysis, Modeling and Capacity planning,
  Definition of deployment topology, Infrastructure configuration,
  Problem determination for SOAs, ITIL processes, Change management in
  live systems.

* SOA Runtime: Service Bus for mediation, transformation and routing,
  Runtime registry, Integration of legacy applications, Information
  services for data access and data integration, Scalability, Topology
  and Optimization, Service oriented middleware, Policy-based
  configuration & Workload management

* Quality of Service: Reliable Service-Oriented Computing, Security and
  Privacy in Service-Oriented Computing, SLA and Policy specification,
  QoS Negotiation, Autonomic management of service levels, Empirical
  Studies and Benchmarking of QoS, Performance and Dependability
  prediction in SOA;

* Grid Services: Services and architecture for management of
  infrastructural resources, Data and Compute intensive applications,
  Execution and resource allocation services for job scheduling,
  Protocols for coordination across multiple resource managers,
  Business value based allocation, Innovative Strategies for Creation
  and Management of Virtual Enterprises and Organizations, Prototype
  systems and Toolkits.

There will be two independent tracks for Research and Industrial papers,
each managed by a different program committee and with a different set of
evaluation criteria. The authors must clearly indicate the track to which
the paper is being submitted.

* Research Papers: The conference is soliciting original research papers
  on all aspects of web services and service-oriented computing. The
  submissions should contain results which advance the state of the art in
  service-oriented systems, either through theoretical analysis or
  experimental analysis. They should clearly establish the research
  contribution, the relevance to service-oriented computing and the relation
  to prior research. Submitted papers will be judged according to their
  scientific merit and evaluated on significance, originality, technical
  quality, and presentation.

* Industrial and Application Papers: ICSOC'06 places a strong emphasis on
  its industrial program and encourages submissions covering the application
  of service-oriented computing in practice, including papers describing
  innovative service-based implementations, novel applications of service
  oriented technology, and major improvements to the state-of-practice.
  Actual case studies from practitioners emphasizing applications, service
  technology, system deployment, organizational ramifications, or business
  impact are especially welcomed. Industrial and application papers should
  give sufficient details on the application domain, on the service oriented
  techniques that have been used, on the issues surrounding actual
  implementations and applications, and on the lessons learned in developing
  service oriented applications. The papers submitted to this track can
  range from a few page extended abstract to a full paper. The track will
  also include a small number of invited visionary papers.

All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF and in Springer/LNCS
format. Research and industrial papers are not to exceed 12 pages.
Abstracts for research and application papers - not exceeding 200 words -
need to be submitted one week prior to the paper submission deadline. All
submissions should include title, authors, full contact information, and

Submissions should indicate at least two main topics and the scientific
area (or areas) that best fit the paper. For selected papers, authors will
be given the opportunity to submit a one-page reply, within one week, to
answer to the reviewers' concerns.  This is done in the effort to improve
the paper selection process and make sure that papers are not rejected
based on some misunderstanding or erroneous interpretation by the
reviewers that is easy to correct in preparing the final version. All
accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC'06 archival proceedings,
published by Springer.
