1st International Workshop on Service-Oriented Blockchain Application Engineering (SOBAE) in conjunction with ICSOC 2020

Call For Papers


There is an increasing interest in service-oriented computing to adopt blockchain to provide trustless, decentralization of services. Recent examples such as decentralized access control for IoT devices or decentralized identity management show that blockchain can be effectively utilized in the context of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). However, in these early days of adoption, there is still a lack of understanding about how the functional and non-functional properties of blockchains could impact the overall system when combined with the service-oriented paradigm. The design of blockchain provides unique properties to the services built on top of the blockchain, like data integrity and immutability. However, blockchain also instigates uncertainties, like probabilistic immutability of Proof-of-Work blockchains, or transaction being discarded due to low transaction fees. These properties and uncertainties of the blockchain environment need to be understood deeply and handled adequately to build reliable and scalable services on top of blockchains.

This workshop aims to bring the interest of researchers, practitioners, and industries to the issues, new directions, and challenges for blockchain application engineering, especially in the context of SOA. We call for papers that explore the themes around the design and engineering issues of using blockchains in the context of service-oriented paradigm.

We seek original and high-quality submissions on, but not limited to, one or more of the following topics:

Blockchain in SOA
IoT/edge computing and blockchain
Blockchain-enabled trusted SOA
Quality of service in blockchain-based SOA
Service-oriented blockchain applications
Blockchain design/development/deployment as a service
SOA and microservices design patterns for blockchains
Decentralized application engineering
Design patterns and reference architectures for blockchain-based applications
Design notations/tools/analysis for blockchain applications
Smart contract development and testing
Programming languages for service composition and integration
