The Second International Workshop On

Real-Time Service-Oriented Architecture and Applications (RTSOAA 2009)

In Conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC 2009, Seattle, Washington, July 20-24, 2009 of the Workshop

As the paradigm service-oriented computing gains more prominence in the development of systems and commercial applications, the capability of guaranteeing service timeliness is becoming a critical feature that elevates an enterprise to the next level. A real-time business can provide a better quality of service comparing with its peers) by shortening the latencies of data, analysis, decision and execution. As such, real time service-oriented architecture and application (RTSOAA) evolve the traditional service-oriented computing approach to the next level of excellence.

RTSOAA presents a new set of emerging issues and challenges that are expected to be identified, resolved by the service-oriented computing community. These include (1) Scientific and engineering approaches to meet timing constraints and to select services and resources for optimizing the trade-offs between cost and efficiency. (2) Technical and managerial issues for RTSOAA: modeling, infrastructure composition, coordination, planning and scheduling, choreography, deployment, configuration, monitoring and control, and governance. (3) RTSOAA platforms and infrastructure for supporting large-scale application domains such as Healthcare, Cyber-Physical Systems, Green Computing, and Cloud Computing.

This workshop is intended to provide an effective forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange innovative ideas and state-of-the-art research, share experiences and lessons learned from academic research projects as well as real world projects, and discuss issues, challenges, needs, and solutions in Real-Time Service-Oriented Architecture and Applications.

Paper Submission Information

Papers must be submitted electronically via the RTSOAA 2009 Submission Page The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for the IEEE conference proceedings. Manuscripts will be limited to 6 pages including all figures, tables, and references. The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines (i.e., 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format (see

All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. All accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index(Elsevier's Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library.
