The Eighth International Conference on Service Oriented Computing

December 7-10, 2010, San Francisco, California

Call for Demos

ICSOC is a prime forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry alike to present and discuss groundbreaking works in service-oriented computing. Beyond scientific excellence and technical depth of service technology, the conference puts major emphasis on application- and business-oriented aspects. A specific focus is on the emerging discipline of service science that aims for an interdisciplinary foundation to rationalize and integrate aspects of service systems from various perspectives.

The ICSOC Demonstration Track is targeting practical contributions, showcasing innovative implementation approaches, technologies and tools. Submissions are invited for system demonstrations to be included in the ICSOC 2010 Demonstration Program. The program will provide an opportunity to discuss emerging technologies with key researchers and practitioners in the field.


The ICSOC 2010 Demo Track welcomes practical contributions that address challenges of service-oriented computing in general or in the context of specific domains by means of innovative software technologies, tools and applications especially encouraging a multidisciplinary perspective. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

- Modeling Business Services and Service Value Networks
- Business Process Interaction and Choreographies
- Business Intelligence and Analytics
- Flexible Service Composition and Mashups
- Service Integration and Orchestration
- Service Engineering Tools and Methodology
- Service Design Methods and Tools
- Service Change Management Systems
- Service Operations and Management
- Service Applications and Implementations
- Service-oriented Architecture Showcases
- Quality of Service Design and Management
- Service Security, Privacy, and Trust
- Service Vocabularies and Ontology
- Cloud Computing Services and Engineering
- Grid and Scientific Computing Services
- Pervasive and Mobile Services
- Embedded and Real-time Services
- Service Technology Testbeds and Living Labs


Demonstration submissions have to include a two page description of the contribution including title, system overview, summary of novel characteristics as well as functions/features to be demonstrated. Descriptions are to be written in English and must not exceed 2 pages following LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Additionally, authors should provide a link to a short online video or screen cast not exceeding 6 minutes in length (hard limit) of their demonstration. The video is recommended, not mandatory. Submissions have to be uploaded to EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icsoc2010demos

All submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, practical value, presentation and relevance to the main conference themes. Accepted submissions will be included in the ICSOC 2010 conference proceedings to be published by Springer. At least one author is expected to register for and showcase the demonstration at the ICSOC 2010 conference in San Francisco.
