Following the success of the first workshop in 2005, the University of 
Leicester is pleased to host the 2nd European Young Researchers 
Workshop on Service Oriented Computing (co-organised with De Montfort 
University). This 2-day workshop is designed 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. 

Keynote Speakers:

- Mark Little (JBoss, UK)

- Steve Ross-Talbot (Pi4tech, UK)

- Martin Wirsing (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany)


Service oriented computing is more than just ideas related to those 
services: in particular it is a chance of bringing together the 
business/user domain and the services domain. The word 'service' 
encompasses web services, semantic web services, grid services and 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:  
- Mathematical foundations of SOC
- Data management issues in SOC
- Frameworks for building SOC applications
- Composite SOC creation and enabling infrastructures 
(e.g., workflow technology)
- SOC composition, orchestration, and choreography
- SOC modelling & design
- Semantic Web, ontologies, and SOC
- Agents 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
- Context aware services
- Business modelling for services 


Submission Information:

YR-SOC presentations will be selected according to originality, 
significance, and general interest. Selections will be on the basis 
of submitted 6-page concise papers. The workshop proceedings with
