IEEE Int'l Conf. Service-Oriented Computing and Applications 12–14 December 2011 University of California, Irvine

With the ever-increasing complexity of computing systems, service-oriented computing (SOC) is considered a key technology for the development of robust and high-quality distributed applications. Extensive research and development in the past few years has pushed SOC technology into numerous application areas including business processes, high-performance computing, Web-based services, and embedded systems. With more and more services being moved into the cloud, and the increasing prevalence of ubiquitous end devices that interface with the physical world, this presents an opportune moment to reexamine the directions of SOC research and identify new research opportunities and challenges.

SOCA is an annual conference of the IEEE Technical Committee on Business Informatics and Systems. SOCA 2011 provides an international forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and latest research results on all aspects of SOC. The program will consist of invited talks, technical paper presentations, tutorials, industry sessions, workshops, and panel discussions.

Call for Papers

13th Int'l Symp. World of Wireless, Mobile, and Multimedia Networks 25–28 June 2012 San Francisco, CA

The evolution of wireless networking technologies and their key role in future Internet scenarios offer an increasing wealth of opportunities for distributing multimedia content over wireless networks, enabling dissemination of professional content to mobile users as well as sharing user-generated content between them. In the future, users will be able to retrieve, publish, and manage information, communicate with other users or devices, access and author services, and create and exploit context awareness. With this context in mind, potential paper topics for this conference include but are not limited to energy-efficient protocols and power management; mobile social networking; participatory and urban sensing; location mechanisms and services; and wireless security, dependability, reliability, and survivability. The submission deadline is 2 December 2011. For a list of additional topics and submission instructions visit
