BSN'06 - SoS4CO'06

2nd International Workshop on Business Service Networks
2nd International Workshop on Service oriented Solutions for Cooperative
June 26, 2006, San Francisco, California, USA

in conjunction with IEEE Joint Conference on E-Commerce Technology
(CEC-06) and
on Enterprise Computing, E-Commerce and E-Services (EEE-06)


Business Services Networks (BSN's) are business networks, that is, a group of
cooperative organizations either within an enterprise or between different
enterprises, which are based on services. In that context, a service
represents a set of encapsulated IT components implementing specific business
functions. The service interface is self-describing in order to publish,
discover and dynamically bind services using an underlying Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA), most often implemented using Web Services standards.
However, this flexibility with regard to loose-coupling and the
interoperability between cooperative organizations is being
applied in current projects, especially in industrial projects.

This workshop concentrates on all facets of BSN's and the architecture of
service-oriented solutions supporting inter-enterprise collaboration,
throughout the entire collaboration life-cycle. This includes the
consideration of business strategies for the establishment of a BSN with
cooperative organizations from different SOA environments and maturity, as
well as the design of such cooperation and collaboration starting with the
requirements until the final instantiation of the collaboration by
discovering, composing, deploying, and invoking services. Based on the
composed BSN, the cooperation and collaboration brings new research
from the perspectives of business (e.g. provisioning) and technical
(e.g. transactions), e.g. monitoring and auditing in a network of

We invite papers addressing business and technical issues of BSN's from
various perspectives, including development strategies of new BSNs,
design of BSNs, as well as management and execution. We encourage
contributions from both academia and industry. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to, the following:

BSN Strategy
*        Business models
*        Integration alliances and interoperability
*        Value added for BSN vendors and adopters
*        Mobile operators, grid services, and utility computing

BSN Design
*        Service-Oriented solutions
*        Requirements engineering for BSN
*        Ontologies, document structures, messaging formats, etc.
*        Match-making of choreographies of different cooperative
*        Match-making of semantic service descriptions
*        Negotiating of inter-organizational business processes and workflows
*        Service discovery on advanced registry concepts beyond UDDI
*        Quality of Service (QoS) and Cost of Service (CoS) negotiation
*        Role of Model-Driven Architectures (MDA) for BSN

BSN Management & Execution
*        SOA-Enablement of software vendors
*        Service Level Agreements (SLA)
*        International provisioning and adoption barriers
*        Pricing and marketing on BSN demand software
*        Monitoring and enforcement of Quality of Service (QoS)
*        Distributed stateless and stateful transactions
*        Role of security, privacy and trust in BSN
*        Auditing of service evolution


Authors are invited to submit original and significant research contributions
in the aforementioned areas. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the
members of the international program committee. We accept papers in DOC, PDF,
and PS format. Submit papers via http://elab.njit.edu/bsnsos4co/submit. It is
planned to select the best papers for a journal special issue. Further
details will be announced soon.
