Business Services Networks (BSN's) are IT infrastructure 
intermediaries where Web Services can be securely published, reused, 
and invoked based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) standards. 
They allow vendors to sell their software as a service and offer 
business users a secure network to compose complex business processes. 
With proper permissions, users can automate several Business Process 
Management (BPM) functions such as: (1) analyze their requirements 
and match them to network resources, (2) model their business 
processes in a complete architecture, (3) define key operational 
conditions for processes, (4) execute their processes on the grid, 
and (5) monitor and manage processes in real-time. In addition, BSN's 
extend the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) of each network participant 
by providing reliable Business to Business (B2B) transaction 
management and Service Level Agreements (SLA). They also offer 
exceptional profit opportunities to vendors based on Utility 
Computing, On Demand, or Pay-Per-Use business models. They 
effectively represent a new form of e-marketplace where IT resources 
and business services are the commodities exchanged.


We invite papers that address both business and technical issues of 
BSN's from various perspectives, including BSN operators, software 
vendors, business adopters, developers, and end-users. We encourage 
contributions from both academia and industry. Topics of interest 
include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. BSN Operators:
a. Business Models and Architectures
b. Spin-Offs from Outsourcing Providers
c. Mobile Operators and Grid Services
d. Industry-Specific B2B Integration Alliances
e. Inter-BSN Alliances and Interoperability

2. Software Vendors:
a. Market Value for Software Vendors
b. SOA-Enablement of Software Vendors
c. Pricing and Marketing On Demand Software
d. Service Level Agreements (SLA)
e. Software Vendors from Developing Countries

3. Business Adopters:
a. Comparing IT Sourcing Models (BSN, ASP, etc.)
b. International Provisioning and Adoption Barriers
c. Real-Time Transaction Monitoring
d. Quality of Service (QoS)
e. Accounting Systems for Utility Computing

4. Developers:
a. Process Oriented and Model Driven Architectures (UML, BPMN, MDA, 
b. Synthesizing Process, Data, and Component Models (MOF, BPSM, etc.)
c. Process Specifications and Execution (WS-CDL, BPEL4WS, etc.) 
d. Composite Processes with Messages, Documents, and Services
e. ebSOA, Business Patterns, and Universal Business Language (UBL)

5. End-Users:
a. Service and Process Oriented Application Development Methods
b. Intelligent Automated Process Discovery and Composition
c. Semantic Web, Ontology Applications, and Domain Specialization
d. User Specialization and Automated Coordination
e. Security, Privacy, and Trust

Keynote Speaker:

To be announced.

Paper Submission:

Please, limit your paper to 8 pages, following the IEEE Computer 
Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines: 

We only accept paper submissions in PDF format through our review 
system: http://elab.njit.edu/bsn.

The submission of an abstract is handled by the same system. This is 
optional and authors are free to submit either or both an abstract 
and their full paper anytime until January 24, 2005.

While our system is a "double-blind" review process, we are happy to 
confirm that we also accept papers that are formatted for a "one-
side-blind" review. In that case, while authors are asked to remove 
all author information in the paper and PDF file, it may be possible 
that their work and references clearly reveal the author's identity. 
We want to reassure authors of "one-side-blind" papers that their 
work is equally welcomed to the workshop. Our reviewers will be asked 
to reveal any potential conflict of interest, and in that case they 
will be assigned other papers. As well, all reviewers will be asked 
to review both types of papers equally without any discrimination.

For any other questions regarding this workshop or its submission and 
review processes, please feel free to contact workshop chairs
