The final selection of workshops has been made. Five tracks, with three workshops each, are organised around the following topics:

Business Models and Architectures Track

Track coordinator : Asit Dan (

The Business Models and Architectures track focuses on the overall modern enterprise. The ability to react quickly to ongoing changes in the marketplace or customer requirements is one of the biggest challenges facing every business. To react, business may need to change their business models and processes, their IT infrastructure, the topology or distribution of the organization and business units, form alliances with partners or co-producers, outsource missing capabilities, con-tract services, or even acquire and merge with other businesses. Business models and architectures help plan the optimal changes. The speed in which such architectures can be made fully operational is what differentiates winners from losers.

The three workshops in this track address different, yet complementing, facets of the problem. TEAR is aligning the Enterprise Architecture with its business models: adapting the IT infrastructure and changing applications so that they optimally support the new business needs. GLOBALIZATION (SG-PAW) is looking at enacting the new business processes by encapsulating organizational work as services that can be combined in new ways and optimize its end-to-end operations across geographical, organizational, and cultural boundaries. Finally, SOC-LOG is focusing on addressing the challenges of a specific application domain, namely, logistic through developing SOC based solutions and examining aspects of Knowledge Management while bringing together researchers from different, though overlapping areas (logistics/supply chain management and service-oriented computing/ systems).

The 4th Workshop on Trends in Enterprise Architecture Research (TEAR 2009)

1st International Workshop on SOA, Globalization, People, & Work (SG-PAW 2009)

SOC-LOG: 1st International Workshop on Service Oriented Computing in Logistics

Service Quality and Service Level Agreements Track

Track coordinator: Farouk Toumani (

The dynamic nature of the business and operational environments where service-based applications live poses new challenges to the engineering and provisioning of such applications. The "Service Quality and Service Level Agreements" track focuses on one of the most significant of these challenges: how to guarantee of the quality characteristics of SBAs.

The track will approach this challenge from two complementary perspectives. First, it will investigate how the exploitation of service contracts and service level agreements to define the exact conditions under which services are provided and the quality characteristics are guaranteed. Second, it will investigate solutions supporting a timely and effective identification and reaction to the changes in the business and operational environments.

This track includes two workshops that correspond to the two perspectives.

NFPSLAM-SOC aims to tackle the research problems around models, concepts, languages and methodologies that enable the specifications of
non-functional properties and Service Level Agreements in the context of Service Oriented Computing, with a special focus on transparent,
multi-level, and holistic NFP and SLA management into service oriented systems.

MONA+ is looking instead at the problems related to the monitoring and adaptation mechanisms and strategies, with a special focus on the relations and interdependencies between the network layer and the service layer.

2nd International Workshop on Service Monitoring, Adaptation and Beyond (MONA+)

Non Functional Properties and Service Level Agreements Management in Service Oriented Computing Workshop (NFPSLAM-SOC'09)

Service Engineering Track

Track coordinator : Frederic Gittler (

Fifth International Workshop on Engineering Service-Oriented Applications (WESOA'09)

International Workshop on User-generated Services

Application Track – Business Experiences

Industrial Experience for Service-Oriented Computing (Monday morning)

The aim of this workshop is to identify the most promising research directions that can have an impact on the service industry for the purpose of aligning academic and industrial research agendas. The evaluation of different proposed approaches and benchmarks and complete case studies is needed to be able to assess which are the most promising research directions that can have an impact on the industrial development of this field.

Common Capabilities for Service Oriented Infrastructures and Cloud Computing (Monday afternoon)

This is a full session workshop that brings together delegates from leading commercial, public and research organizations around the world to share experiences of commercial applications of Service Oriented Infrastructures based on the fusion of Web Services and Grid Computing paradigms as a foundation for Service Oriented IT in the 21st century. Presented by the BEinGRID project.

Business Opportunities and Challenges for Grid and Cloud Computing (Tuesday morning)

This workshop provides a consultancy oriented view of business opportunities and challenges for grid and cloud computing.  It focuses on the latest market trends and the challenges that market players face when developing new solutions to emerging business opportunities. Special attention is paid to the business models, product strategies, service commercialization, and legal safeguards.  Presented by the BEinGRID project.

Application Track – Technologies for Services 

Identity Management in Service Oriented Architectures (Monday afternoon)

This workshop focuses on the intersection and complementary work related to the identity management in dynamic and reconfigurable service architectures and infrastructures.  Presented by the projects MASTER, PrimeLife and TAS3.  These projects are complementary and given their state of the art, they are likely to provide the reusable results as well as few key elements of a strategy towards embedding Security and Trust in service infrastructures.

 Event-Driven Business Process Management (Tuesday morning)

This workshop presents the challenges in realizing Event-Driven BPM and describe a conceptual reference model and a reference architecture for it. This workshop will also address the integration of Complex Events, the current and future movement on edBPM-related standards (including hands-on examples and first prototypes), and the challenges of dynamically starting, stopping, terminating or changing Internet services driven by events.
