Service-oriented computing become a well-accepted computing paradigm for large-scale, distributed systems. It changes the way software applications are designed, provided and utilised. The fundamental element is that of service: services are autonomous, platform-independent computing elements that can be managed using the middleware facilities of service-oriented computing environments. The promise of service-oriented computing is a world of cooperating services where application components are assembled with little effort into a network of services that can be loosely coupled to create flexible dynamic business processes and agile applications that may span organizations and computing platforms. For several years, the roadmaps on the field have indicated a stable set of grand challenges on the field:

  • service foundations, including the ESBs, end-to-end security solutions, and advanced service discovery solutions;
  • service composition; involving awareness of business needs or QoS, autonomic composition, and improved management of business processes;
  • service and collaboration management; and
  • service engineering, including service oriented software engineering methodologies.

In this series of seminars, the set of presentations will be grouped to sets as follows:

  • first set going through the basic architecture model, concepts and approaches (suitable for newcommers to the field);
  • second set addressing typical technological solutions; and
  • third set narrowing down to more modern, topical challenges (suitable for thesis workers and seekers of advanced material).

In 2011, the technological approaches are likely to focus on multiagent tehchnologies. The advanced topics are likely to include declarative business process management, alternative trust management approaches and frameworks on nonfunctional properties (QoS included) management.
