These papers and other high quality papers from SOCA 2010 will be invited to extend and submit to special issues of 'Service Oriented Computing and Applications Journal' (Springer) and 'International Journal of Computer Systems Science and Engineering' (CRL).
With the ever-increasing complexity of computing systems, and their increasingly complex interactions with the physical environment, service-oriented computing (SOC) is considered today as a key technology for the development of robust and high quality distributed applications. Extensive research and development in the past few years has pushed SOC technology into numerous application areas including business processes, high-performance computing, web-based services, embedded systems, and many others. With more and more services being moved into the 'cloud', and the increasing prevalence of ubiquitous end devices that interface with physical world, it is timely to reexamine the directions of SOC research and identify new research opportunities and challenges. For example, with the maturity of virtualization techniques and infrastructure, the wider adoption of 'clouds' becomes more prominent, while research on the applications of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS remains active. Furthermore, ubiquitous devices, context-aware systems, and sensor networks are increasingly being used in areas such as transportation, healthcare and disaster control; and this fact is making cyber-physical systems a challenging area for the SOC research community. Moreover, in recent years, services for mobile internet devices such as iPhone, Android Phone (like Motorola Droid and Google Phone), and Amazon Kindle DX are emerging and becoming accepted by consumers. It is also predicted that the market for mobile services will grow sharply.
SOCA'10 provides an international forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and latest research results on all aspects of service-oriented computing. Papers from industry in services science are also welcome, as SOCA'10 will have a special session on business services and technology. A Best Paper Award will be presented to the best paper selected from the accepted full papers.
All accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings of SOCA 2010 and be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. The best papers from the proceedings will be selected for publication in the Springer Journal on Service-Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA) as well as special issues in international journals to be announced.
