INTRODUCTION
The 2005 European Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented 
Computing (SOC) is a first attempt to bring together PhD students and 
those who completed their doctoral studies within the past few years. 
Attendance at the workshop is open to all. The aim of the workshop is to 
build a reputable and respectable forum for young researchers 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 (a suitable publisher 
will be found) 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.
 
Submissions to the Poster and Demo Sessions are also invited

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:

- 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

Paper Submission

2-page abstracts, posters and demos may be submitted by emailing them to 
Monika Solanki, Barry Norton. In the same email, please mention a 
(tentative) one liner theme or title of your research/thesis and the 
current stage of your research (e.g. 2nd year). If you have completed 
your doctoral thesis, please mention the year of completion.

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.
