8th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC) 2010

December 7 - 10 2010, San Francisco, California, USA


The conference

Since 2003, ICSOC has been the prime forum for academics and industry 
researchers and developers to report and share groundbreaking works in service 
oriented computing. ICSOC has fostered cross-community scientific excellence 
by the gathering of experts from various disciplines, such as business process 
management, distributed systems, computer networks, wireless & mobile 
computing, grid computing, networking, service science, management science, 
and software engineering.

Service innovation is key to the future of business. Even in traditionally 
manufacturing-driven industries, such as IT, the importance of service has 
surpassed most other corporate competences.  The Internet and Web-based 
services create ever more opportunities for service innovation.  Service 
science is an interdisciplinary approach to the study, design, and 
implementation of service systems - the specific arrangements of people, 
organizations, technologies, and information that cocreate value. Service 
systems are often IT-enabled and knowledge-intensive, and can span different 
real or virtual organizations. In this multidisciplinary context, researchers 
and practitioners in management, social sciences, and computer sciences are 
all working together to promote and facilitate service innovation.    

While keeping its roots in scientific excellence and technical depth of 
service technology, ICSOC 2010 aims to combine the general technical issues 
with application and business-oriented aspects of service design, following 
the recent emergence of service science as an interdisciplinary foundation to 
rationalize and integrate various aspects of service systems.

ICSOC 2010 will bring together scientists, engineers, and practitioners from 
multiple disciplines to focus on service innovation--enabled by computational 
and information technology and by complex interactions among systems.

The conference will feature research and industry presentations, keynote 
presentations, demonstrations, tutorials, workshops and a PhD track.

ICSOC 2010 seeks outstanding, original contributions, including solid 
theoretical and empirical evaluations as well as practical and industrial 
experiences -- with emphases on results that solve open research problems 
and make a significant impact to the emerging field of service science.  
Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Theoretical and Technical Service Foundations 
* Business Service Modeling and Business Process Modeling 
* Interacting Business Processes
* Process Choreographies
* Flexible Composition of Services
* Service Integration and Orchestration 
* Service Composition and Engineering 
* Service Operations and Management 
* Service-oriented Architecture 
* Quality of Service 
* Service Applications and Implementations 
* Service Design Methods
* Service change management
* Designing Outsourcing Interactions
* Service Vocabularies and Ontologies
* SOA Runtime
* Testbeds for service concepts and yechnologies 
* Grid and Cloud Services
* Business Intelligence and Analytics
* Pervasive and Mobile Services
* Embedded and Real-time Services
* Service Security, Privacy, and Trust  


The conference solicits outstanding original research and practice papers on 
all aspects of service-oriented computing and service science. Papers should 
clearly demonstrate the research or practical contribution, the relevance to 
the field and the relation to prior work. Submitted papers will be evaluated 
according to their rigor, significance,originality, technical quality, and 


Prospective authors must submit abstracts prior to submitting full papers. 
Full papers are not to exceed 15 pages including all references and figures. 
All papers must be prepared in the Springer LNCS format and be submitted 
electronically (in PDF) via the conference Web site. 


All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC 2010 proceedings published by 
Springer-Verlag under the Services Science series. Selected papers will be 
considered for possible publication in ACM Transactions on the Web (TWeb) and 
a special issue of the International Journal on Cooperative Information 
Systems (IJCIS).
