What are the issues?
The interconnection of computing entities and the increasing interplay
of hardware, software and middleware is making computers transcend far
beyond the classical notion of 'systems' to the wider ranging 'services'
oriented computing. The issues of design, composition, availability,
responsiveness, analysis, security and many others are basic challenges to
be thought out for provision of services and the service providing
Who should attend?
The objective of this Symposium is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from different "service" related areas within both industry
and academia. We specially encourage original papers addressing problems of
service availability at all layers, including experience on:
- Service Implementations: What services are under development and how
do these services address availability requirements? How can service
development profit from standards, such as those specified by the SA Forum
- Service Deployment and Operation: What are critical issues in the
roll-out of services and what is important for the uninterrupted
deployment of service updates?
- (Telco) Infrastructure Providers including IT Manufacturers: what is
the state of the art in dependability infrastructure and what standards
are available for use? What products are on the market or under
development to fulfil those standards?
