The First UK Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing
******************************************************************

21-22 April 2005,
Software Technology Research Laboratory <www.cse.dmu.ac.uk/STRL>
De Montfort University <www.dmu.ac.uk>
Leicester, UK.

The 2005 UK Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing 
(SOC) is a first attempt in UK to bring together PhD students and those 
who completed their doctoral studies within the past few years, in the 
British Isles. Attendance at the workshop is open to all. The aim of the 
workshop is to build a reputable and respectable forum for young 
researchers in UK with inputs from industry practitioners.  The core 
objectives are to exchange information regarding advancements in the 
state of the art and practice of SOC, as well as to identify the 
emerging research topics and define the future trends in this domain. It 
is also planned to have 4 invited speakers to share their expert 
opinions on various aspects of SOC.

 YR-SOC presentations will be selected according to originality,   
significance, and general interest. Selections will be on the basis of 
submitted 2-page abstracts. A booklet with the abstracts of the accepted 
presentations will be available at the workshop. After the workshop, the 
author(s) of each presentation will be invited to submit a full 10-15 
page paper on the same topic. They will also be asked to write 
(anonymous) reviews of papers submitted by other authors on related 
topics; further reviewing, and the final selection of papers, will be 
carried out by the organisers.  The volume of selected papers from the 
workshop will be published as a technical report by the end of August' 
2005. Authors will retain copyright, and are also encouraged to 
disseminate the results reported at YR-SOC by subsequent publication 
elsewhere. The workshop is partly funded by EPSRC.

SCOPE: The word ''service'' here encompasses web services, semantic web 
services and e-services. Topics of interest include, but are not limited 
to, the following:

- Mathematical foundations of SOC
- Data management issues in SOC
- Frameworks for building SOC applications
- Composite SOC creation and enabling infrastructures (e.g.,
workflow technology)
- SOC composition, orchestration, and choreography
- SOC modelling & design
- Semantic Web, ontologies, and SOC
- Dynamic invocation mechanisms for SOC
- Contractual issues between provider and consumer of SOC
- Version management in SOC
- Customization of SOC
- SOC architecture
- SOC negotiation & agreement
- SOC discovery & selection
- UDDI and SOAP enhancements
- SOC and process management
- Trust, security & privacy in SOC
- Scalability and performance of SOC
- SOC standards and technologies
- Automatic computing for SOC infrastructure
- Wireless web, mobility, and SOC
- SOC based Grid Computing and peer to peer computing
- SOC based applications for e-commerce
- Quality of service for SOC
- Multimedia applications using SOC
- Economics and pricing models of utility computing and SOC
- Resource management of SOC
- Solution management for SOC
- Adoption of SOC by organizations
- Case studies on SOC based applications
- Analysis, testing, and verification of Services

Location and Organization

 Leicester is centrally located, the largest city in the East Midlands 
and the tenth largest in the country. Leicester's history goes back to 
the Iron Age. Its importance was first recognised by the Romans and 
later by the Danes, who used it as a strategic stronghold to control the 
Midlands. Since then it has developed into a major commercial and 
manufacturing centre, known better for the diversity of its trade than 
for its dependence on a single industry.
 
The workshop will be held at STRL, De Montfort University. DMU is a 
dynamic organisation, formed from a diverse range of specialist 
institutions. Its long history of excellent teaching, learning and 
research is founded in the technical and trade education of the late 
19th Century. Accommodation may be available in newly built halls of 
residence and also in a small selection of good quality hotels. A full 
social programme drawing on the culture of the area will complement the 
scientific event.
