I am not normally one to be promoting stuff, but since Ken and I are  
on the PC of this one ...

***Apologies for multiple postings***

==== SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 13 June 2008 ====

Modeling, Design, and Analysis for Service-oriented Architectures  
Workshop; 3rd edition

co-located with the with the 12th Enterprise Computing Conference  
(EDOC 2008)

17 September 2008, M��nchen , Germany


A new paradigm ��� service-orientation ��� is currently  
emerging for distributed computing
and e-business processing; it has evolved from object-oriented and  
computing to enable building agile networks of collaborating business  
distributed within and across organizational boundaries. This new  
paradigm utilizes
services (autonomous platform-independent computational elements that  
can be described,
published, discovered and accessed over the Internet using standard  
protocols) as
fundamental elements for developing applications/solutions; services  
will be important
for customers and not the specific software or hardware component that  
is used to implement
the services. In this context, services become the next level of  
abstraction in the process
of creating systems that would enable automation of e-businesses. This  
paradigm shift is
changing the way the computer software is developed and used  
(designed, architected,
delivered, consumed, and analysed), and this way of reorganizing  
software applications
and infrastructure into a set of interacting services is usually  
referred to as
Service-oriented Architecture s (SOA).

In recent years, various forms of service-oriented architectures have  
appeared; amongst
them, Web services, Grid services, Semantic Web Services, and e- 
Services are the most
important. Although they share some of the principles of service- 
oriented architectures,
they differ in many other aspects, which is an undesirable situation  
in the context of
service-oriented architectures. Since standard protocols are a basic  
principle of SOA,
this undesirable situation is partly due also to the fact that there  
are currently no
mature methodologies and techniques to support analysis for service- 
oriented architectures.
Moreover, all these forms of service-oriented architectures have  
developed different conceptual
models, resulting in different methodologies for modelling and  
designing service-oriented

In this context, this workshop aims to tackle the research problems  
(as well as practical
experiences) around methods, concepts, models, languages and  
technology that enable computing
in service-oriented environments. Of particular interest are the  
architectural, technical,
and developmental foundations of service-oriented architectures, and  
showing how they combine
synergistically to enable distributed computing on the scale required  
by today's Internet-connected

The focus of the workshop is broader than, but includes, the OMG MDA  
(Model Driven Architecture)
approach for service oriented architectures. MDA was for the first  
international workshop,
mda4soa'06, used as short for Modeling, Design and Analysis.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry  
practitioners (e.g. leading
modelers, architects, system vendors, open-source projects,  
developers, and end-users)
addressing many of these issues (including recent developments in  
tools and techniques, and
real-world implementations of service-oriented distributed  
applications), and promote and
foster a greater understanding of how service-oriented architectures  
can assist business
to business and enterprise application integration, thus helping  
people develop and manage
business processes more efficiently and effectively.


The following indicates the general focus of the workshop. However,  
contributions are welcome as well.

     *  case studies for service-oriented architectures and systems
     * analysis methodologies for service-oriented architectures and  
     * languages and methods for service-oriented architectures
     * specification of service-oriented architecture
     * MDA (OMG Model Driven Architecture) for service-oriented  
     * DSL (Domain Specific Languages) for service-oriented  
     * modeling and simulation of service-oriented architectures
     * verification and validation of service-oriented architectures
     * evaluation of service-oriented architectures
     * analysis and design of mobile service-oriented architectures
     * patterns in modelling, design, and analysis for service- 
oriented architectures
     * guidelines for developing service-oriented applications
     * techniques for integrating service-oriented architectures
     * semantic aspects and ontologies for service-oriented  
     * formal models for service-oriented architectures; reasoning  
with service-oriented architectures
     * quality of services (QoS) analysis and modelling in service- 
oriented architectures
     * services level agreements (SLAs) modelling and negotiation in  
service-oriented architectures
     * analysis and modelling of security, privacy, and trust in  
service-oriented architectures
     * policy-based service-oriented architectures
     * methods for migrating legacy systems to service-oriented  
     * discovery, composition, execution, monitoring, and mediation in  
service-oriented architectures
     * adaptability and recovery strategies in service-oriented  
     * models for governance in service-oriented architectures
     * specifications and models for service-oriented architectures:  
Web services, Grid services, Semantic Web Services, and e-Services
     * standards for modeling, specification, design and analysis of  
service-oriented architectures
     * tools, environments and factories for modelling, design and  
analysis of service-oriented architectures


The program will occupy a full day, and will include presentations of
papers selected from the full papers category (see 'submissions' below).

Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission must
attend the workshop. The EDOC 2008 conference formalities are applied
for fees and respective organizational aspects. Submission of a paper
is not required for attendance at the workshop. However, in the event
that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would like to participate,
those who have submitted a paper (in any category) will be given
priority for registration.


The workshop invites different types of contributions:

     * Papers
     * Demos
     * Posters / Position papers

Papers:The papers should not exceed 8 pages and should have the
IEEE layout.

Demos: Detailed description plus sufficient number of screenshots or
a video of the demo are required. For paper-based submissions,
please follow the IEEE layout. Please note that at the workshop itself
no technical support is provided except possibly Internet connection
and power (to be confirmed).

Posters/Position papers: The posters/position papers should not
exceed 4 pages and should have the IEEE layout.

All contributions will be peer reviewed by a program committee that
will incorporate well recognized experts in the area of service-oriented

All submissions should be formatted in the IEEE layout, and should
be submitted in electronic format using the link:

All accepted full papers and all position papers of attendees will be
published in the proceedings of the workshop. Workshop proceedings
will be published with IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available
at the workshop.


     * Paper submission deadline: 13 June 2008
     * Paper acceptance notification: 18 July 2008
     * Camera ready of papers: 28 July 2008
     * Workshops day: 17 September 2008
