Following the success of the previous three workshops, ISTI-CNR is pleased to host the 4th European Young Researchers Workshop on Service-Oriented Computing (YR-SOC) in Pisa from 17 to 19 June 2009.

This edition sees the introduction of a number of tutorials, thus making the workshop a 3-day event. This workshop series is designed to bring together PhD students, junior researchers working in the industry and those who completed their doctoral studies within the past few years. Attendance to the workshop is open to all. The aim of the workshop is to build a reputable and respectable forum for junior 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. Two types of submissions are sought: Papers in the range of 5-15 pages and posters in the form of 2-5 page abstracts. The workshop's preproceedings with the accepted papers and poster abstracts will be available at the workshop.
