   The Nineth International Conference on Service Oriented Computing

                   Coral Beach Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus

                           December 5-8, 2011


                        *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***


Since 2003, The International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing
(ICSOC) has been the main forum for academics and industry researchers
and developers to report and share groundbreaking works in
service-oriented computing. ICSOC aims at fostering cross-community
scientific excellence and collaboration by the gathering of experts
from various disciplines, such as business process management,
distributed systems, computer networks, ubiquitous computing, grid
computing, service science, management science, and software

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 co-create 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 2011 aims at examining the research
opportunities that are offered by the possible blend of
service-oriented computing with cloud computing. In cloud computing,
software platforms, applications and data reside in providersí servers
called clouds. By making clouds ubiquitously available, a more rapid
and low cost access to a shared pool of virtualized and configurable
computing resources is offered to enterprises that would like to
diversify their application computation and data storage strategies.
Service-oriented and cloud computing is this time the main theme for
ICSOC 2011. Questions like how does service-oriented computing support
the transition to cloud-based solutions, and how does it support
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and
Software as a Service (SaaS) models are highlighted for researchers to
be discussed during the conference.

ICSOC 2011 will bring together scientists, engineers, and practitioners
from multiple disciplines to focus on service-oriented, cloud-based
innovative for the 21st century enterprises. The conference will feature
research and industry presentations, keynote presentations, workshops,
demonstrations, tutorials, and a PhD track. Please refer to
www.icsoc.org for calls for workshops, demonstrations, and tutorials.

The conference solicits outstanding original research and practice
papers on all aspects of service-oriented, cloud-based computing. 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 exposition.


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
available at icsoc.org.


All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC 2011 proceedings published
by Springer-Verlag under the Services Science series. Selected papers
will be considered for possible publication in the International Journal
of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS).
