        INTRODUCTION
        The 2005 European Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented
        Computing (SOC) is a first attempt to bring together PhD
        students, young researchers working in the industry 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 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

        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.
