Ernesto Damiani
University of Milan

Brief Biography

Ernesto Damiani is currently a professor at the University of Milan and the director of the University of Milan’s PhD program in computer science. He has held visiting positions at a number of international institutions, including George Mason University in Virginia, LaTrobe University in Melbourne, Australia, and the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. He has also done extensive research on advanced network infrastructure and protocols, taking part in the design and deployment of secure high-performance networking environments, both as chief scientist and in management positions. His areas of interest include business process representation, Web services security, processing of semi and unstructured information (e.g., XML), and semantics-aware content engineering for multimedia. Also, he is interested in models and platforms supporting open source development. He is the chair of the IEEE Conference on Digital Ecosystems (IEEE-DEST), the IFIP Working Conference on Open Source Systems, and the IFIP 2.6 WG on Data Semantics. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transaction on Service Oriented Computing and a member of various editorial boards, including the Journal of System Architecture. He has published several books and about 200 papers and international patents. His work has appeared, among others, in the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, the ACM Transactions on Information and System Security, and TFS, as well as in the ACM Transactions on Information Systems and the ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology. He has served and is serving in all capacities on many congress, conference, and workshop committees. He is a senior member of the IEEE. In 2008 he was nominated ACM distinguished scientist and he receive the Chester Hall Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transaction on Consumer Electronics.

The design and deployment of inter-organizational collaborative business process need to take into account risks posed by the process actorsí dysfunctional behavior.
Estimating such risks is of paramount importance at the operational and/or organizational level.
This talk will present a general methodology for analyzing risks connected to dysfunctional behavior of business process partners, and design risk-aware deployment of security countermeasures.

Keynote Lecture 2 Foresight & Research Priorities for Service Oriented Computing
Mike P. Papazoglou
Tilburg University
The Netherlands

Brief Biography

Michael P. Papazoglou is a Professor at Tilburg University where he is the Director of the European Research Institute in Service Science and the Scientific Director of the European Network of Excellence in Software Services and Systems (S-Cube). He is also an honorary professor at the University of Trento in Italy, and professorial fellow at the Universities Lyon 1 (France), Univ. of New South Wales (Australia) and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid (Spain). Prior to this he was full Professor and head of School of Information Systems at the Queensland Univ. of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane Australia (1991-1996).
Papazoglou is well known for developing fundamental concepts and techniques in Web services. His research interests lie in the areas of service oriented computing, Web services, large scale data sharing, business processes, and federated and distributed information systems.
He made pioneering contributions in these areas. He is one of the most cited researchers and internationally recognized for his research contributions in the area of service oriented computing with well over 2,000 references for his work. He has published 5 books and 5 monographs/edited books. He has also edited 11 major international conference proceedings, and well over 150 journal and conference papers.
Most of his papers appeared in very selective and reputable conferences and journals. He is frequently invited to give keynote talks and tutorials on service oriented computing in international conferences. He is a golden core member and a distinguished visitor of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Science section.


Service-Oriented Computing is a new computing paradigm that utilizes services as the basic constructs to support the development of rapid, low-cost and easy composition of distributed applications even in heterogeneous environments. The promise of Service-Oriented Computing is a world of cooperating services where application components are assembled with little effort into a network of services that can be loosely coupled to create flexible dynamic business processes and agile applications that may span organizations and computing platforms. The subject of Service Oriented Computing is vast and enormously complex, spanning many concepts and technologies that find their origins in diverse disciplines that are woven together in an intricate manner. In addition, there is a need to merge technology with an understanding of business processes and organizational structures, a combination of recognizing an enterprise's pain points and the potential solutions that can be applied to correct them. The material in research spans an immense and diverse spectrum of literature, in origin and in character.
As a result research activities are very fragmented. This necessitates that a broader vision and perspective be established—one that permeates and transforms the fundamental requirements of complex applications that require the use of the Service-Oriented Computing paradigm.

This talk provides a Service Oriented Computing Roadmap and places on-going research activities and projects in the broader context of this roadmap. This research roadmap launches four pivotal, inherently related, research themes to Service Oriented Computing: service foundations, service composition, service management and monitoring and service-oriented engineering.
