Hasso-Plattner-Institut at the University of Potsdam, Germany.


The symposium on "Future Trends in Service-oriented Computing" (FutureSOC) 2008 is held for the third time at the Hasso Plattner Institute. FutureSOC highlights the recent work of some Research School members and outlines new trends in the area of Service-oriented Computing.

As the HPI Research School is an interdisciplinary undertaking of the HPI research groups, FutureSOC covers a wide range of topics concering SOC, like service description, discovery and composition, service deployment, platform configuration and capacity planning, monitoring, service middleware, service-oriented architectures, service management, information as a service, software as a service, service development and maintenance, novel business models for SOAs, economical implications of Web Services and SOAs, service science, mobile and peer-to-peer services, data services, quality of service, exception handling, or service reliability and security.

Excellent speakers, leaders in their respective field of research, are invited to talk about their latest projects and resulting outcomes.
