Service-oriented computing is considered today as a key technology for
the development of robust and high quality intelligent distributed and
embedded applications. Extensive research and development in the past
few years has pushed SOA technology into state-of-the-art application
areas such as context-aware, cloud-connected, mobile enterprise systems.
However, many of the critical components on building reliable, robust,
and user-centric sensor-based SOA systems are still open for research.
Hence, it is timely to reexamine SOA research opportunities and identify
new research challenges for next generation SOA.

One of the future SOA applications is Machine-to-Machine (M2M) systems
that are built on top of a network of services, each of which is
autonomous and collaborates with each other to form coherent and
context-aware service. It has been suggested that M2M will spark the
next ICT revolution based on the 15-year gold rule of the ICT technology
after PC's and Internet. The services in M2M have diverse
characteristics and dynamic requirements. Many of the service components
are deployed on resource limited embedded systems and are performance
sensitive; others are deployed on cloud servers providing highly
parallel services. Two distinct sources for the increasing complexity
are intelligent services in heterogeneous devices, and the constantly
evolving environment. Hence, the dynamic flexibility of SOA may be used
to compose and invoke services in M2M to adapt to the changing sensor
resources, but also to the dynamic user needs and physical environment.

The 2012 IEEE International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing and
Applications (SOCA 2012) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, with a theme of
"M2M SOA". The conference includes three days of parallel tracks
program, special-topic workshops/tutorials, and panel discussion. We
invite submissions of high quality papers describing fully developed
results or ongoing work on the topics such as:

- Service-oriented architecture, engineering, and applications
- M2M service system management
- Intelligent service composition, management and maintenance
- Configurable and reconfigurable service middleware
- Large-scale real-time cyber-physical systems
- Dependable and trustworthy services
- Streaming and real-time data analytics
- Mobile service engineering and applications
- Security and privacy for intelligent service applications
- Context-aware connected embedded computing
- Service composition with multi-dimensional QoS
- Service networks for smart home, smart transportation, and smart
- Sustainability issues on large-scale M2M applications

Proposal for workshops on focused emerging topics are also solicited.
The papers in the workshops will be published in the SOCA proceedings
that will be included in the IEEE Digital Library.
