Just wanted to let people know about the 6th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2008) which will be held in Sydney Australia 1-5 December 2008.
This has been described as the "top-tier academic conference in the area of service-oriented computing, an area of ICT focused on enabling that different businesses can collaborate and achieve common business goals despite the fact that their software systems might be distributed over the Internet, run on different platforms, and implemented in different programming languages".
ICSOC 2008 in Sydney offers a diverse program with presentations of peer-reviewed papers, 4 keynotes from leading researchers and industry experts, demo sessions, 5 workshops, a PhD student symposium, and several tutorials by world-renowned experts.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the recent advances in service oriented computing and the benefits that they offer to businesses. It's also a good excuse to come to Sydney, which is pretty nice this time of year.
You can still get 'early bird' registration rates until 31 October 2008, and there's more info about the conference at http://www.icsoc.org/.
