Modeling, Design, and Analysis for Service-oriented Architectures Workshop
(mda4soa'06)
http://events.deri.at/mda4soa2006/

co-located with the 2006 IEEE International Conferences on
Services Computing (SCC 2006) and Web Services (ICWS 2006)

September 18, 2006, Chicago, Illinois, USA
--------------------------------------------------------

GENERAL OVERVIEW

A new paradigm – service-orientation – is currently emerging for distributed
computing and e-business processing; it has evolved from object-oriented
and component-based computing to enable building agile networks of
collaborating business applications distributed within and across
organizational boundaries. This new paradigm utilizes services (autonomous
platform-independent computational elements that can be described,
published,
discovered and accessed over the Internet using standard protocols) as
fundamental elements for developing applications/solutions; services will be
important for customers and not the specific software or hardware component
that is used to implement the services. In this context, services become the
next level of abstraction in the process of creating systems that would
enable
automation of e-businesses. This paradigm shift is changing the way the
computer software is developed and used (designed, architected, delivered,
consumed, and analysed), and this way of reorganizing software applications
and infrastructure into a set of interacting services is usually referred to
as
Service-oriented Architectures (SOA).

In recent years, various forms of service-oriented architectures have
appeared;
amongst them, Web services, Grid services, Semantic Web Services, and
e-Services are the most important. Although they share some of the
principles
of service-oriented architectures, they differ in many other aspects, which
is an
undesirable situation in the context of service-oriented architectures.
Since
standard protocols are a basic principle of SOA, this undesirable situation
is
partly due also to the fact that there are currently no mature methodologies
and techniques to support analysis for service-oriented architectures.
Moreover,
all these forms of service-oriented architectures have developed different 
conceptual
models, resulting in different methodologies for modelling and designing
service-oriented architectures.

In this context, this workshop aims to tackle the research problems (as well
as
practical experiences) around methods, concepts, models, languages and
technology that enable computing in service-oriented environments. Of
particular
interest are the architectural, technical, and developmental foundations of
service-oriented architectures, and showing how they combine synergistically
to enable distributed computing on the scale required by today’s
Internet-connected
enterprise.

This proposed workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry
practitioners (e.g. leading modelers, architects, system vendors,
open-source
projects, developers, and end-users) addressing many of these issues
(including
recent developments in tools and techniques, and real-world implementations
of
service-oriented distributed applications), and promote and foster a greater
understanding of how service-oriented architectures can assist business to
business and enterprise application integration, thus helping people develop
and manage business processes more efficiently and effectively.

   * tool for modelling, designing, and analysing service-oriented
architectures


WORKSHOP FORMAT AND ATTENDANCE

The program will occupy a full day, and will include presentations of
papers selected from the full papers category (see 'submissions' below).

Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission must
attend the workshop. The ICWS/SCC 2006 conference formalities are applied
for fees and respective organizational aspects. Submission of a paper
is not required for attendance at the workshop. However, in the event
that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would like to participate,
those who have submitted a paper (in any category) will be given
priority for registration.


SUBMISSIONS

The workshop invites different types of contributions:

   * Papers
   * Demos
   * Posters / Position papers

Papers:The papers should not exceed 8 pages and should have the
IEEE layout.

Demos: Detailed description plus sufficient number of screenshots or
a video of the demo are required. For paper-based submissions,
please follow the IEEE layout. Please note that at the workshop itself
no technical support is provided except possibly Internet connection
and power (to be confirmed).

Posters/Position papers: The posters/position papers should not
exceed 4 pages and should have the IEEE layout.

All contributions will be peer reviewed by a program committee that
will incorporate well recognized experts in the area of service-oriented
architectures.

All submissions should be formatted in the IEEE layout, and should
be submitted in electronic format using the link:
http://www.easychair.org/mda4soa2006/.

All accepted full papers and all position papers of attendees will be
published in the proceedings of the workshop. Workshop proceedings
will be published with IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available
at the workshop.
