Service-Oriented Computing exploits services as the fundamental elements of computer-based systems.
It has been applied to various areas and promotes fundamental changes to the way software systems are being analyzed,
architected, designed, implemented, tested, evaluated, delivered, consumed, maintained and evolved. Consequently,
a new paradigm of software and system engineering discipline, i.e., Service-Oriented Engineering, has emerged and
advanced rapidly in the past decade. Among many remarkable milestones in the development of this new paradigm are
the wide adoption of the Microservices architectural style supported by Docker and other container-based virtualization
techniques in the design of cloud native applications in the industry, and the DevOps movement in the organization of
development processes supported by automated tools for continuous testing, continuous integration, and continuous delivery.
Recent advances in Service-Oriented Computing (SOC), in particular Internet-of-Things, Industry 4.0, Edge and Fog computing,
mobile and cloud computing combined with Big Data analytics, robotics, blockchain and decentralized ledger applications,
and application of artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques, etc., have provided exciting opportunities to
make significant progress in understanding and solving complex real-world challenges. Such challenges typically require
a system-level approach that models a complex system at different levels of abstraction, helps to develop sound architectures
for addressing separate system requirements and concerns, and integrates diverse sources of knowledge in the system’s
components and their interactions. Therefore, the revolution of the software and system engineering paradigm brought by
service-orientation is still unfolding, with each new technology development bringing new challenges and opportunities.

Starting from 2005, SOSE is a pioneering IEEE sponsored international conference devoted to the research in engineering
service-oriented systems. It covers all aspects of Service-Oriented Engineering from architectures, techniques, tools
and languages to methodologies. Continuing the tradition of the last fifteen editions of SOSE Symposia, the 16th SOSE
intends to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights, achievements and
visions in Service-Oriented System Engineering. SOSE 2022 invites original submissions in all the areas of the system
engineering and software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software services.

Types of Papers

Regular Research Papers

Research papers must be written in English and be no more than 10 pages in length, report on new research
not published elsewhere. The topics of research papers may of any topic or related theme as listed above.

Work in Progress and Vision papers

As the field covered by SOSE develops rapidly it is always useful to provide authors with an opportunity to
present early ideas to the community and obtain feedback and guidance on direction.
SOSE 2022 also encourages vision papers which discuss future and emerging issues, including emerging paradigms,
technologies, and applications. To enable this dimension, we are inviting work in progress paper submissions not
exceeding 5 pages in length and cognate with any of the topics mentioned above. The title in the submission for
review should be prefaced with “WIP” to aid reviewers.

Industry Practice / Case Study Papers

SOSE 2022 encourages papers reporting on industrial practice, case studies, empirical research and practical
experiences in service engineering. Industry papers and case studies should be between 6-10 pages in length.
The topics should relate to the set of topics of the research papers in order to initiate discussions among
practitioners and academics.
