Organizations need adaptive business processes and flexibility in function formation to implement dynamic business strategies for on-demand businesses. Flexible system collaboration and seamless system integration are the key concerns when implementing distributed information systems. With the availability of open standards, to overcome cross-platform barriers, and facilities to support service construction, SOA and Web services are being adopted by industries to make business services perform more efficiently and effectively. They contribute to the shaping of the processes of business modeling, solution creation, service delivery, and software architecture design, development and deployment. However, the applications and methods of SOA have not been fully exploited.

SOAIC-2006 is an international forum for researchers and practitioners from different areas of computer science and information systems to exchange information and their experiences on the enabling technologies and best practices for Service Oriented Computing, and to identify the emerging research topics.

Service-Oriented Application, Integration and Collaboration (SOAIC2006) will be held together with The IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE2006) on Oct 26, 2006, in Shanghai, China. It is to continue on from the success of SOAIC2005 which had 20 accepted papers presented, out of 100 submissions from around the world.

SOAIC2006 has the mission of "Service-Oriented, Application-centric, Integration-focused, collaboration enforced". It aims to bridge the gap between business and information technology using service-oriented paradigms and approaches.

The major topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

• Service-Oriented Architecture, Semantics and Web Services Technologies

• Service-Oriented Multi-Agent

• Grid Services

• Dynamic and Intelligent Service Composition and Process Modeling

• Web Services Modeling

• Service-Oriented Application Design, Development and Deployment

• Service-oriented Business Process Modeling, Transformation and Integration

• Service-Oriented Business Planning, Integration and Practices

• QoS of Web Services and Business Performance Management Services

• Efficiency, Trust and Security with SOA Applications
