CALL FOR PAPERS: PhD Student Symposium at the 3rd International Conference
on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2005)
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
December 12, 2005

Themes and Objectives:
In the last few years a paradigm shift in distributed computing could be
witnessed. Service-Oriented Computing has paved the way to changes in the
design, architecture, delivery, and use of software applications. Services
are defined as autonomous platform-independent software elements which can
be used to collaborate as distributed entities especially across
organizational boundaries. They can be described, published, discovered,
orchestrated, and programmed using standard protocols.

A promising way to realize the idea of Service-Oriented Computing are Web
Services. These services are designed for the implementation of business
processes within a distributed computing environment and are based on a
set of evolving standards.

To facilitate the involvement of PhD students in this growing research
area the PhD Student Workshop will offer the opportunity to present
current PhD work. The aim is not to have straight presentations, but to
grant enough time to discuss central issues of each thesis for the benefit
of the student.

Topics of Interest:
The topics of the PhD Student Workshop are similar to the ones of the main
conference. This means the submissions should be related to Web Services
and Service-Oriented Computing. Therefore, the topics of interest include
the following, but are not limited to them.

Service Information Modeling
Service Description
Service Dependency Modeling
SLA Modeling
Service Configuration
Service Composition
Service Discovery
Service Deployment
Service Monitoring and Management
Service Performance
Service Scheduling
Service Fault Management
SLA Management
Services Framework
Service Lifecycle Management
Service Oriented Architectures
Quality of Service
Services and Workflow/Business Processes
Service Semantics
Applying Service-Oriented Architectures
Theoretical Application of Services
Services in Grid Environments
Services for Peer-to-Peer Applications
Security and Privacy Issues with respect to Services

Each submission needs to have a student as the sole author. The page limit
is six pages in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science format from Springer
Verlag which is also the format of the main conference
(www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). The proceedings of the workshop
will be published as IBM research report. Each submission should point out
the main issue of the corresponding thesis. In addition, a motivation for
the research in the selected area and a review of related work
(approaches, standards, etc) are required. The latter one needs to reveal
deficits of the state-of-the-art that require further investigation. The
steps to be taken to address the issues of the thesis in future work
should be outlined. The content of the submission needs be original and
not under review elsewhere.

Each submission is reviewed by at least two members of the technical
program committee according to innovativeness and contribution, relevance
to the call for papers, technical content, paper organization and
presentation, as well as reference to related work.

Submissions (PDF-format) and inquiries about the workshop should be sent
by e-mail to hanemann@lrz.de
