SOA Industry Summit

Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style that seeks to create a set of business-aligned IT services that collectively support an organization’s business processes and goals. As a cross discipline, this alignment of business and IT addresses how to enable IT technology to help people perform business services more efficiently and effectively.

This 6th industry summit on SOA is intended to bridge the gap between Services Computing and Business models that are supported by them, with an emerging suite of ground-breaking technologies that includes cloud computing, SOA, business process modeling, integration and management, grid/utility/autonomic and cloud computing, enterprise service bus and Web 2.0. The relative placement of these emerging technologies, standards and concepts need to be clarified for the pragmatic needs of the industry.


The SOAIS event is focused on industry practitioners who work on real-world systems, applying the SOA principles, standards, technologies, tools, protocols, solutions and management. These practitioners had exhibited the ability to combine multiple technologies, standards and initiatives within the SOA world in order to create a viable and pragmatic solution that has successfully been demonstrated to solve problems.  In addition to best practices or, in the case of an emerging discipline, adequate practices that have proven successful are needed.  In addition warning examples of how not to apply projects are also welcome because they provide a venue and context for avoiding common pitfalls in the combination of SOA resources that are often confusing to practitioners in the field.

In consideration of the value of the time of such practitioners in writing a full-length paper, particularly for the people in the industry sectors, SOAIS 2009 is proposing a new format for paper submission. In place of the requirements of 8-page long research papers, we encourage the professionals and practitioners in the industry sectors to submit a 2-page abstract consisting of experience reports.

It is recommended that a presentation document is attached with the abstract. Experience reports are expected to provide and describe new insights gained in the context of case studies or the application of SOA in practice.

These papers will be evaluated on their relevance and significance to industries and the clarity of expression. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be included in the IEEE digital library and Engineering Index (EI) database.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum. Please note that the same paper should NOT be submitted to ICWS 2011, SCC 2011, CLOUD 2011, and other tracks of SERVICES 2011 simultaneously. Such duplicate submissions will be rejected from all conferences without review.

Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 2 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and required to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, and review process can be found at At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper

Only the accepted and presented papers will appear in the CD-ROM version and online version of the proceedings of the IEEE 2011 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2011) , which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected best papers published in the SERVICES 2011 will be invited for potential publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM),  and IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC).
