SOCA 2009
SOCA'09With the ever-increasing complexity in today's computing systems and their complex interactions with the physical environments, service-oriented computing (SOC) is considered as a key technology to combat the complexity for developing robust and high quality applications. The extensive research and development in the past few years have pushed the SOC technology into business process, high performance computing, web-based services, embedded systems, and many other important areas. With more and more services moved into the "cloud" and ubiquitous end devices that interface with physical environments becoming prevalent, it is time that we reexamine the directions of SOC research and identify new research opportunities and challenges to advance the technology.

SOCA'09 provides an international forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and latest research results on all aspects of service-oriented computing. All accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings of SOCA 2009 and be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. 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.
