Final Call for Abstracts
YR-SOC, 2005
The First UK Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing

21-22 April 2005,
Leicester, UK.

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 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.
2-page abstracts, posters and demos may be submitted by emailing them to
Monika Solanki (monika@dmu.ac.uk) or Barry Norton
(barry@dcs.shef.ac.uk). 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.

- 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

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.
