CALL FOR PAPERS

ICSOC04
2nd International Conference on
Service Oriented Computing

New York City, NY, USA
November 15-19, 2004

http://www.icsoc.org/

Co-sponsored by ACM SIGWEB and ACM SIGSOFT (approval pending)


Service Oriented Computing (SOC) is the new emerging paradigm for
distributed computing and e-business processing that is changing the
way software applications are designed, architected, delivered and
consumed. Services are autonomous platform-independent computational
elements that can be described, published, discovered, orchestrated
and programmed using standard protocols for the purpose of building
agile networks of collaborating business applications distributed
within and across organizational boundaries.

Combined with recent developments in the area of distributed systems,
workflow management systems, business protocols and languages,
services can provide the automated support needed for e-business
integration both at the data and business logic level. They also
provide a sound support framework for developing complex business
transaction sequences and business collaboration applications.

Adopting the service oriented computing paradigm has the potential to
bring about reduced programming complexity and costs, lower
maintenance costs, faster time-to-market, new revenue streams and
improved operational efficiency.

However, before the service oriented computing paradigm becomes
reality, there is a number of challenging issues that need to be
addressed including among other things service modeling and design
methodologies, architectural approaches, service development,
deployment and composition, programming and evolution of services and
their supporting technologies and infrastructure.

This conference aims to bring together researchers and developers from
diverse areas of computing and developers to explore and address these
challenging research issues in order to develop a common research
agenda and vision for service oriented computing.

PAPER SUBMISSION

One of the goals of the conference is to bring the academic and
industrial research communities closer. To this end the conference
solicits two kinds of submissions, research and industrial papers, and
places emphasis on the SOC industrial program.

Research Papers

The conference is soliciting only original high quality research
papers on all aspects of service-oriented computing. Submitted papers
will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and
exposition. They should clearly establish the research contribution,
its relevance to service-oriented computing and its relation to prior
research.

Industrial & Applications Papers

The conference also encourages high quality submissions covering the
application of SOC in practice, including papers describing innovative
service-based implementations, novel applications of service-oriented
technology, and major improvements to the state-of-practice. Actual
case studies from practitioners emphasizing applications, service
technology, system deployment, organizational ramifications, or
business impact are especially welcomed.

Because industry-based authors typically create their submissions on
their own time in addition to their normal responsibilities, the
conference has different evaluation criteria for industrial and
applications papers to ease the burden for such authors. Specifically,
such submissions are expected to focus on details and issues
surrounding actual implementations and applications, and they need not
be as detailed regarding prior art as academic papers are expected to
be. Papers submitted to the Industrial Track are also expected to be
shorter than academic papers. Industrial Track submissions that do not
relate to commercial software and standards, or industrial prototypes
in actual use, are not encouraged. Because of these different
evaluation criteria, authors must clearly indicate that their
submissions are intended for the industrial track. Submissions that do
not specifically indicate that they are intended for the Industrial
Track will be submitted to the regular track.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Research papers are not to exceed 5000 words and should be submitted
in PDF. Industrial papers are not to exceed 3000 words and should
likewise be submitted in PDF. Paper abstracts not exceeding 150 words
need to be submitted one week prior to the paper submission
deadline. Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one
of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper.

Tutorials

The SOC conference solicits the submission of high quality tutorial
proposals on any of the conference topics. Tutorial proposals should
not exceed five pages, and should include enough material to describe
what is being covered and at which level of depth. Proposals should
also indicate the required background knowledge of the intended
audience, the tutorial length (1.5 hours or 3 hours), as well as the
name, contact information, and short bios of the speakers.  A one page
abstract of the tutorial must also be included, to be incorporated
into the conference proceedings.  Proposals should be submitted
electronically to fabio.casati@hp.com no later than June 18,
2004. Tutorial notes will be made available to SOC participants

Conference Proceedings

The ICSOC'04 proceedings will be published by ACM Press.
