Subject: OASIS Symposium | Call for Participation Opens

OASIS Symposium: Composability within Service Oriented Architectures
28 April - 1 May 2008
Santa Clara, California  USA

Call for Participation:  Deadline for submission is 17 December 2007

At the core of Service Oriented Architectures currently deployed in
businesses and governments is the ability to compose or coordinate various
pieces of applications - legacy and novel - that may be developed on
different platforms and languages, provide different interfaces, and be
managed by different owners.

We use the term "composability" to denote this quality.

This symposium addresses the various technical and business facets of
composability in SOA.  This symposium will be an opportunity for both
researchers and business practitioners to state their challenges, best
practices and experiences.  It will also be a forum where technology
architects provide a fair assessment of the current status of
composability standards and implementations, including opportunities for
improvement and potential obstacles.

OASIS invites proposals for talks, panel sessions and tutorials with a
clear  focus on answering technical or business questions on composability
within Service Oriented Architectures.  Potential topics include, but are
not limited to:

•  Orchestration and choreography of services: making composite
applications work
•  Use Cases, lessons learned and best practices for a successful SOA
deployment of composability technologies
•  Use of semantic technologies to enhance SOA composability
•  The standards for SOA relating to composability: how do various
standards support composability, how do they compose with each other
•  Composition of service components using Service Component Architecture
•  Management and governance of distributed composite applications,
including policy management as well as the control of service interfaces
and  implementations
•  Client-side composability through Web 2.0 style mash-ups using AJAX,
JSON  and related technologies
•  The dynamic aspect of composite applications: change management,
discovery, upgrades, migrations and transitions
•  Organizational aspects of designing composite applications: multi-owner
systems, transitioning from smokestack solutions to reusable service
•  Coordination and mediation enablers: Enterprise Service Bus, rule-based
engines, service directories, etc.
•  Testing of composite applications, including the challenges of testing
across business boundaries
•  The security and identity management aspects of composability:
discovery of service failure semantics, fine grained versus coarse grained
policy propagation and enforcement, the role of identity in composability,
ensuring end to end security, privacy, and accountability within a
security realm or across security realms
•  Transactions and compensations within composite applications including
ACID transactions and long running activities across business boundaries
•  Management of composite applications – monitoring and control across
distributed heterogeneous services
•  Business, military, or government specific challenges and solutions for
SOA and composability
