Following the success of the previous workshops, in 2005 and 2007, Imperial College London is pleased to host the 3rd European Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing. This 2-day workshop is designed to bring together PhD students, young researchers working in the industry and those who completed their doctoral studies within the past few years. Attendance at the workshop is open to all. The aim of the workshop is to build a reputable and respectable forum for young researchers with inputs from industry practitioners. The core objectives are to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of SOC, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future trends in this domain.

YR-SOC presentations will be selected according to originality, significance, and general interest. Selections will be on the basis of submitted 6-page concise papers. The workshop proceedings with the accepted papers will be available at the workshop. After the workshop, the author(s) of each presentation will be invited to submit a full 10-15 page paper on the same topic. They will also be asked to write (anonymous) reviews of papers submitted by other authors on related topics; further reviewing, and the final selection of papers, will be carried out by the organisers. Contributions of a high quality will be published in the proceedings (a suitable publisher will be found).
