      The 4th International Conference of Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC'06)
      follows on the success of three previous editions in Amsterdam (2005), New
      York City (2004), and Trento (2003). Today ICSOC is recognized as the main
      conference for service oriented computing research and covers the entire
      spectrum from theoretical and foundational results to empirical
      evaluations as well as practical and industrial experiences.

      ICSOC'06 seeks original papers in the field of service oriented computing,
      from theoretical and foundational results to empirical evaluations as well
      as practical and industrial experiences, with an emphasis on contributions
      to solve the many still open research problems that are of significant
      impact to the field of service oriented applications. Topics include but
      are not limited to the following:

      * Business Service Modeling: Methods and tools for capturing business
      and requirements, Decomposition into business services, Business
      processes, Business policies, Modeling, analysis, and simulation,
      Specification of functional and non-functional quality requirements;

      * Service Assembly: Development and Discovery: Model-driven development,
      Service composition architectures, Service registries, Service discovery
      mechanisms, Semantic matching, Methods and tools for service
      Governance, Verification and validation, Deployment strategies;

      * Service Management: Instrumentation and service related data
      end-to-end Measurement, Analysis, Modeling and Capacity planning,
      Definition of deployment topology, Infrastructure configuration,
      Problem determination for SOAs, ITIL processes, Change management in
      live systems.

      * SOA Runtime: Service Bus for mediation, transformation and routing,
      Runtime registry, Integration of legacy applications, Information
      services for data access and data integration, Scalability, Topology
      and Optimization, Service oriented middleware, Policy-based
      configuration & Workload management

      * Quality of Service: Reliable Service-Oriented Computing, Security and
      Privacy in Service-Oriented Computing, SLA and Policy specification,
      QoS Negotiation, Autonomic management of service levels, Empirical
      Studies and Benchmarking of QoS, Performance and Dependability
      in SOA;

      * Grid Services: Services and architecture for management of
      resources, Data and Compute intensive applications, Execution and
      allocation services for job scheduling, Protocols for coordination
      multiple resource managers, Business value based allocation, Innovative
      Strategies for Creation and Management of Virtual Enterprises and
      Organizations, Prototype systems and Toolkits.

      There will be two independent tracks for Research and Industrial papers,
      each managed by a different program committee and with a different set of
      evaluation criteria. The authors must clearly indicate the track to which
      the paper is being submitted.

      * Research Papers: The conference is soliciting original research papers
      all aspects of web services and service-oriented computing. The
      submissions should contain results which advance the state of the art in
      service-oriented systems, either through theoretical analysis or
      experimental analysis. They should clearly establish the research
      contribution, the relevance to service-oriented computing and the
      to prior research. Submitted papers will be judged according to their
      scientific merit and evaluated on significance, originality, technical
      quality, and presentation.

      * Industrial and Application Papers: ICSOC'06 places a strong emphasis on
      its industrial program and encourages submissions covering the
      of service-oriented computing in practice, including papers describing
      innovative service-based implementations, novel applications of service
      oriented technology, and major improvements to the state-of-practice.
      Actual case studies from practitioners emphasizing applications, service
      technology, system deployment, organizational ramifications, or business
      impact are especially welcomed. Industrial and application papers should
      give sufficient details on the application domain, on the service
      techniques that have been used, on the issues surrounding actual
      implementations and applications, and on the lessons learned in
      service oriented applications. The papers submitted to this track can
      range from a few page extended abstract to a full paper. The track will
      also include a small number of invited visionary papers.

      All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF and in Springer/LNCS
      format. Research and industrial papers are not to exceed 12 pages.
      Abstracts for research and application papers - not exceeding 200 words -
      need to be submitted one week prior to the paper submission deadline. All
      submissions should include title, authors, full contact information, and
      Submissions should indicate at least two main topics and the scientific
      area (or areas) that best fit the paper. For selected papers, authors will
      be given the opportunity to submit a one-page reply, within one week, to
      answer to the reviewers' concerns. This is done in the effort to improve
      the paper selection process and make sure that papers are not rejected
      based on some misunderstanding or erroneous interpretation by the
      reviewers that is easy to correct in preparing the final version. All
      accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC'06 archival proceedings,
      published by Springer.
