CFP: The First International Workshop on Dependable Service-Oriented 
Computing (DSOC)

In conjunction with 10th IEEE International Conference on Computer and 
Information Technology (CIT 2010)

Bradford, UK, 29 June - 01 July, 2010

Supported by IEEE Computer Society

Scope:

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is concerned with the structure of 
service provision and consumption and the infrastructure to support the 
interactions. The architecture is made of service suppliers and 
consumers, with suppliers advertising through registries or brokers for 
consumers to discover. The use of SOA has been motivated by many 
industries changing focus from product delivery to service-based 
delivery. The focus on service delivery has also been apparent in 
software, where networking has become faster, more reliable and more 
available through reduced cost. The approach to SOA in software enables 
business process integration that characterises business functions as 
services, and integrates dynamically across departments and organisations.

Loose coupling is one of the key architectural principles of SOA, and 
this enables services to maintain a relationship that minimises 
dependencies and only requires maintaining an awareness of each other. 
Loose coupling is an approach where integration interfaces are developed 
with minimal assumptions between the sending/receiving parties, thus 
reducing the risk that a change in one service will force a change in 
another service. The loose coupling of SOA enables service 
implementations to be inter-changed and modified. However, service 
composition and integration is dependent on service interface 
definitions and requires management of workflow definitions to minimise 
impact on composite services. In the SOA, fast paced changes could be 
caused by evolution of services (e.g. adding or removing functions from 
services), evolution of service providers, evolution of networks and 
evolution of user’s requirements. Changes in these cases could affect 
the dependability of service composition and integration. A composite 
service could be lost if one of the bound services offering the 
requested functions is removed by the service provider, or one of the 
requested functions that was previously available is removed or replaced 
by a different function.

There are strong needs for improving dependability of service-oriented 
computing to make service-oriented systems more reliable, secure and 
robust for service provision and delivery. The First International 
Workshop on Dependable Service-Oriented Computing aims at collating 
efforts and main achievements that contribute to research and 
development of service-oriented systems. This workshop will address new 
issues in design and development of dependable service-oriented systems 
as well as new challenges in modelling and simulation of novel 
service-oriented architecture. The relevant topics include, but not 
limited to:

     * Dependable distributed systems
     * Security in Service-Oriented Computing
     * Trust evolution in large-scale systems
     * Dependable Cloud Computing
     * Dependable P2P Computing
     * Service Composition and Integration
     * Real-time systems
     * Service-Oriented P2P systems
     * Dependable Grid Services
     * Evolutionary Service-Oriented Architecture
     * Industrial Case Study


Paper Submission:

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work that has 
neither appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other conferences 
and journals.  The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 
pages for overlength charges (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings 
Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced), including figures and 
references, using 10 fonts, and number each page. All papers will be 
peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. The 
accepted papers will be published together with those of other workshops 
by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

     * Submission will be handled through EasyChair. Please find the 
submission link http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsoc10.

Distinguished selected papers accepted and presented in the workshop, 
after further extensions, will be published in conference’s special 
issues of the following prestigious SCI-indexed journals:

     * The Journal of Supercomputing - Springer
     * Journal of Computer and System Sciences - Elsevier
