This talk consists of 4 parts: First, I provide an introduction to Service-oriented Computing (SOC), its principles and foundational concepts. Secondly, I will introduce Web services as a popular implementation technology for SOC. In the third part, we will discuss the open research issues in this field. In part 4, I will focus on future mixed systems consisting of human services and software services.
Part 1: Introduction to Service-oriented Computing
Part 2: Web services
Part 3: Research Roadmap for Service-oriented Computing
Part 4: Services in Mixed Systems – Models, Methods, and Algorithms
