Call For Papers

Practitioners are very likely to beg, borrow and steal from software
engineering in-the-small to benefit the case of software engineering
for the ultra-large-scale, as it is the case of the cloud. Though the
fundamentals of engineering software in both paradigms exhibit
resemblance, software engineering for the cloud require novel
approaches, which address the interplay between technical,
economics-driven considerations and shifts software engineering
towards a utility-based engineering for software-, infrastructure-,
data storage and/or platform- as services.

The goal of this workshop is to address these gaps by strengthening
the cross-fertilization of advances from software engineering,
services and cloud computing. The workshop will explore, debate and
increase our understanding to the following: (i) how recent advances
in software engineering (with an emphasis on software architectures,
architecting dependable systems, self-adaptive software architectures,
economics-driven software engineering, risk management, security
software engineering, green software engineering and testing) can
(not) relate to the case of cloud; (ii) what are the most recent
innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the field
that appraise the paradigm-shift in engineering software systems as
cloud services or in support of cloud infrastructures; (iii) what are the open
research directions for software engineering FOR the cloud?; (iv) how
the paradigm will shape the future of engineering software IN the
cloud, i.e. benefiting from the cloud infrastructure, virtualisation
and economics of scale.

The workshop thus aims to bridge the gap between software engineering,
services, business and cloud computing communities by specifically
addressing the challenges for software engineering FOR and IN the

List of topics
* Requirements engineering in and for the cloud;

scalability, real-time and dependability in cloud architectures;
* Service-level management for the cloud;
* Services engineering for the cloud;
* Model-driven engineering for the cloud;
* Environments and tools support for the cloud;
* Testing for the cloud;
* Maintenance and evolution for the cloud;
* Risk management in the cloud;
* Engineering sustainability in cloud architectures;
* Economics-driven engineering for the cloud;

Important dates
Paper Submission March 14, 2011 (Extended)
Decision Notification March 21, 2011
Camera-Ready Submission & Pre-registration April 8, 2011

Submission Information:
Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short
papers (about 4 pages) as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines
( All papers should be
in PDF and submitted via the submission system at First time users need to
register with the system first. All the accepted papers by the
workshops will be included in the Proceedings of the Seventh IEEE 2011
World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2011) which will be published by
IEEE Computer Society.

Papers will be reviewed by three program committee members and will be
selected depending on their originality, quality and relevance to the
workshop. Each accepted paper will have to be presented in person by
(one of) the author(s). To foster lively and productive discussions,
each author will be encouraged to present open questions to the forum
and one or two main statements for discussion at the workshop
brainstorming session. We aim to arrange for a special thematic
journal issue, featuring the best papers presented in the workshop for
this year. We also plan to have a book on the theme.
