Call For Papers

The Fourth IEEE International Workshop on
Real-Time Service-Oriented Architecture and Applications (RTSOAA 2011)

In conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on
Service-Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA 2011)

and other related workshops: KSEM 2011, SOSE 2011, KASTLES 2011.
December 12th--14th 2011, University of California, Irvine, CA.

Theme of the Workshop: Real-Time Cloud Computing and Virtualization
Constantly changing information and an ever-increasing number of
interacting end-users make responsiveness and timeliness guarantees
critical requirements of modern service-oriented systems and
commercial applications. Real-time service-oriented architectures and
applications (RTSOAA) evolve the traditional service-oriented
computing to satisfy this demand. As these services get increasingly
deployed in virtual environments offered by Cloud providers, it is
necessary to introduce new mechanisms to ensure that both the
timeliness requirements and goals of the application and middleware
layers are respected at the underlying platform.

Key needed skills and experiences not only include those ones that can
be found in the service-oriented computing systems community, but also
the ones usually belonging to the domain of design, modeling, analysis
and development of real-time systems, which are crucial for dealing
with Quality of Service and timeliness guarantees. This workshop is
intended to provide an effective forum for researchers and industry
practitioners to exchange research outcomes, issues, ideas,
experiences, and lessons learned from the related academic and
industrial research fields.

The theme of RTSOAA 2011 is Real-Time Cloud Computing and
Virtualization. The impact of the Cloud as a platform for responsive-
and timeliness constrained service-oriented applications is to be
analyzed. Relevant research topics include:

(1) scientific and engineering approaches to meet timing constraints
in virtualized infrastructures (IaaS) and platforms (PaaS), and
optimally select cloud-enabled services satisfying those constraints;

(2) technical and managerial issues of real-time cloud computing
services: modeling, infrastructure composition, coordination, planning
and scheduling, choreography, deployment, configuration,
collaboration, monitoring and control, and governance;

(3) real-time cloud computing platforms and infrastructures for
supporting specific application domains such as Healthcare, Green Data
Centers, Large-Scale Analytics, Smart Cities, Workload Optimization

Scope of the Workshop
Research on real-time service-oriented architectures and applications
(RTSOAA) covers multiple heterogeneous and complementary subjects such
as: real-time systems, service-oriented architectures, performance
modeling, analysis and tuning of virtualized service-based systems,
software engineering, decision technology, etc. RTSOAA 2011 welcomes

Paper Submission Information
RTSOAA welcomes the submission of full papers, short papers and
position papers containing new, unpublished original research results.
Full papers should present mainly accomplished results in the research
areas identified above, along with a technical comparison with related
work in the literature. They should have a length between 6 and 8
pages (see below for formatting instructions). Short papers usually
focus on preliminary results, ideas and designs on narrowly-focused
research or experimental studies. They should have a length between 4
and 6 pages. Depending on the reviewers recommendations, a full paper
might be accepted as short paper only. In such a case, its length must
be reduced to no more than 6 pages for the final proceedings.

Finally, position papers should highlight what is (planned to be) the
authors position or ideas for dealing with a specific challenging
problem. Position papers are limited to 2 pages and will not appear in
the official proceedings. However, their submission is highly
encouraged in order to trigger fruitful discussions that may be useful
for planning and driving future research directions.

Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author. Note
that, in order to have the paper published in the proceedings, at
least one of the authors of each accepted full or short paper must
register by paying the full registration fee as a participant to the

The best papers from the proceedings will be invited for submission to
the special issue of a prestigious journal that will be organized
specifically around the RTSOAA themes.


The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for the
IEEE conference proceedings. Manuscripts will be limited to 8 pages
for full papers, 6 pages for short papers and 2 pages for position
papers. Page counting includes all figures, tables, and references.
The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE conference
proceedings guidelines (i.e., 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format (see All papers
will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. All accepted
full and short papers will be published in the electronic conference
proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and
