6th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC'08)
Sydney, Australia, December 1-5, 2008


Abstract submission: June 1, 2008 11:59pm, PST
Paper submission: June 8, 2008 11:59pm, PST

Service oriented computing is an emerging cross-disciplinary paradigm
for distributed computing that is changing the way software applications
are designed, architected, delivered and consumed.

ICSOC’08 builds on the success of previous conferences in this series,
establishing bridges between established and new service research and
applications communities and fostering cross-community scientific
excellence. Our goal is to bring together ideas and technologies from
many different fields in an evolutionary manner, to address research
challenges such as service composition, discovery, integration,
monitoring and management of services, service quality and security,
methodologies for supporting service development, governance in their
evolution, as well as their overall life-cycle management. This year, we
are focusing on building bridges with the business community because of
its ongoing contribution to the emerging field of Services Science.

ICSOC’08 seeks original papers in the field of service oriented
computing, from theoretical and foundational results to empirical
evaluations as well as practical and industrial experiences, with the
emphasis on results that contribute to solving the many still open
research problems that are of significant importance to the field of
service oriented applications. Topics include but are not limited to the

- Services Foundations
- Business Service Modelling
- Integrating Systems of Systems using Services
- Service Engineering
- Service Assembly
- Service Management
- SOA Runtime
- Quality of Service
- Service Applications (Grid, E-science, Government, etc.)
- Business and Economical Aspects of Services

Prospective authors must submit an abstract prior to submitting their
full paper – this abstract will be used in matching reviewers with
papers. Research papers should describe innovative and significant
original research relevant to ICSOC as described above. Papers submitted
for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be
under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of

All papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNCS
camera-ready format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the
conference web site. Research papers are not to exceed 15 pages,
including all references and figures. All submissions should include
title, authors, and full contact information. Detailed instructions for
authors are available on the LNCS website:


Submissions should indicate the scientific area that best fits the
content of the paper. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of
originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality
of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. The program
committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions
to accept for presentation at the conference.

All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC’08 proceedings (pending
request), published by Springer Verlag as a part of its Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series
At least one author of the paper is expected to present the results at
the ICSOC’08 conference. Selected papers will be invited for a special
section of STTT (Int. Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer).
