SSOKU09 aims to gather over 200 experts in the fields of Software & Services and SOKU, including high level researchers, top industrial and political representatives from the European Commission and from national authorities. It will provide a forum to discuss the future of Grids & Software and Service oriented Architectures as well as to evaluate the findings presented in the results of the ECSS White Paper on Software and Service Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering and of the Challengers' Research Agenda and Roadmap on Grids.

European SMEs participation is particularly encouraged and attendance from European and International projects and initiatives, universities, media, commercial, research or governmental organisations are most welcome.

The event features a mix of plenary and parallel sessions.
