PhD Student Symposium at
3rd International Conference on
Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2005)
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
December 12, 2005

Themes and Objectives

In the last few years a paradigm shift in distributed computing could
be witnessed. Service-Oriented Computing has paved the way to changes
in the design, architecture, delivery, and use of software
applications. Services are defined as autonomous platform-independent
software elements which can be used to collaborate as distributed
entities especially across organizational boundaries. They can be
described, published, discovered, orchestrated, and programmed using
standard protocols.

A promising way to realize the idea of Service-Oriented Computing are
Web Services. These services are designed for the implementation of
business processes within a distributed computing environment and are
based on a set of evolving standards.

To facilitate the involvement of PhD students in this growing research
area the PhD Student Workshop will offer the opportunity to present
current PhD work. The aim is not to have straight presentations, but
to grant enough time to discuss central issues of each thesis for the
benefit of the student.

Topics of Interest

The topics of the PhD Student Workshop are similar to the ones of the
main conference. This means the submissions should be related to Web
Services and Service-Oriented Computing. Therefore, the topics of
interest include the following, but are not limited to them.

    * Service Information Modeling
          o Service Description
          o Service Dependency Modeling
          o SLA Modeling 
    * Service Configuration
          o Service Composition
          o Service Discovery
          o Service Deployment 
    * Service Monitoring and Management
          o Service Performance
          o Service Scheduling
          o Service Fault Management
          o SLA Management 
    * Services Framework
          o Service Lifecycle Management
          o Service Oriented Architectures
          o Quality of Service
          o Services and Workflow/Business Processes
          o Service Semantics 
    * Applying Service-Oriented Architectures
          o Theoretical Application of Services
          o Services in Grid Environments
          o Services for Peer-to-Peer Applications
          o Security and Privacy Issues with respect to Services 


Each submission needs to have a student as the sole author. The page
limit is six pages in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science format
from Springer Verlag which is also the format of the main conference
(www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). The proceedings of the
workshop will be published as IBM research report. Each submission
should point out the main issue of the corresponding thesis. In
addition, a motivation for the research in the selected area and a
review of related work (approaches, standards, etc) are required. The
latter one needs to reveal deficits of the state-of-the-art that
require further investigation. The steps to be taken to address the
issues of the thesis in future work should be outlined. The content of
the submission needs be original and not under review elsewhere.

Each submission is reviewed by at least two members of the technical
program committee according to innovativeness and contribution,
relevance to the call for papers, technical content, paper
organization and presentation, as well as reference to related work.

Submissions (PDF-format) and inquiries about the workshop should be
sent by e-mail to hanemann@lrz.de
