|The 2005 European Young
Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing (SOC) is a first
attempt to bring together PhD students, young researchers working in the industry and those who completed their
doctoral studies within the past few years. Attendance at the workshop
is open to all. The aim of the workshop is to build a reputable and
respectable forum for young researchers with inputs
from industry practitioners. The core objectives are to exchange information
regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of SOC,
as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the
future trends in this domain. It is also planned to have 4 invited
speakers to share their expert opinions on various aspects of SOC
|YR-SOC presentations will
be selected according to originality, significance, and general interest.
Selections will be on the basis of submitted 2-page abstracts. A booklet
with the abstracts of the accepted presentations will be available
at the workshop. After the workshop, the author(s) of each presentation
will be invited to submit a full 10-15 page paper on the same topic.
They will also be asked to write (anonymous) reviews of papers submitted
by other authors on related topics; further reviewing, and the final
selection of papers, will be carried out by the organisers. The volume
of selected papers from the workshop will be published as a technical
report (a suitable publisher will be found) by the end of August
2005. Authors will retain copyright, and are also encouraged to disseminate
the results reported at YR-SOC by subsequent publication elsewhere.
The workshop is partly funded by EPSRC.
Submissions to the Poster and Demo Sessions are also invited
