This book contains the Proceedings of an International Conference (IS&N95) addressing the technologies required for the effective engineering of telecommunications service software, a discipline which is called Service Engineering. In the increasingly competitive environment developing for telecommunications services, new services will need to be conceptualized, and created rapidly and cost-effectively in response to user requirements. To meet this challenge, service engineering has now emerged as a new engineering discipline. As such it is strongly related to software engineering, adapting the appropriate best practices from that discipline. In particular, Object-Orientation and Open Distributed Processing, are being adopted to meet the needs of the new telecommunications services market place. Many of the papers in the book reference the results of a group of RACE projects which have been undertaking research and development in the area of Intelligence in Services and Networks (IS&N).
