Call for demonstrations

ICSOC 2008 is the sixth in a conference series that provides one of the most prestigious forums for researchers and practitioners in all aspects of service-oriented computing. ICSOC 2008 builds on the success of previous events in this series and aims to foster cross-community scientific excellence by establishing bridges between the technical and the business communities in the emerging field of Services Science.

Submissions are invited for system demonstrations to be included in the ICSOC 2008 Demonstration Program. This program is intended to showcase innovative implementation approaches, technologies and tools related to service-oriented computing. The program will provide an opportunity to discuss emerging technologies with key researchers and practitioners in the field.

All demonstration submissions should include a title, a short description of the system, a summary of its novel characteristics and the functions and features to be demonstrated. Authors must include in their submissions a link to a short video of the demonstration (screencam with voice over of approximately 6 minutes). Submissions must be in English, must not exceed two pages, and must be in LNCS Format (see for details).

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 conference proceedings to be published by Springer Verlag.

Submissions are to be sent as email attachments (PDF format) to the Demo co-chairs at demo [at] icsoc [dot] org.
