The IEEE International Conference on Service Oriented Computing & Applications (SOCA 2011) provides an international forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and latest research results on all aspects of service-oriented computing. Papers from industry in services science are also welcome, as SOCA'11 will have a dedicated industry track. The program of SOCA 2011 will consist of invited talks, technical paper presentations, tutorials, industry sessions, workshops, and panel discussions. SOCA is an annual conference of the IEEE Technical Committee on Business Informatics and Systems (TCBIS).
SOCA 2011 will take place December 12-14, 2011 at the Campus of University of California, Irvine. It will be collocated with the 2011 International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management (KSEM) and The 6th IEEE International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (SOSE). Furthermore, two workshops will part of this joint conference: the Fourth IEEE International Workshop on Real-Time Service-Oriented Architecture and Applications (RTSOAA 2011) and the International Workshop on Knowledge and Service Technology for Life, Environment, and Sustainability (KASTLES 2011).
All accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings of SOCA 2011 and be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. The best papers from the proceedings will be selected for publication in the Springer Journal on Service-Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA) as well as special issues in international journals to be announced.
Authors interested in participating in SOCA 2011 are invited to submit their original papers (limited to 8 IEEE style pages) until 4th September 2011. Further details on the submission process are available in the sections on Paper Submission and Important Dates.
