10th European Conference On Service-Oriented And Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2023)
October 24-26, 2023, Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus
AIM AND SCOPE
Nowadays, Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing are the primary approaches to build
large-scale distributed systems and deliver software services to end users. Cloud-native
software is pervading the delivery of enterprise applications, as they are composed of
(micro)services that can be independently developed and deployed by exploiting multiple
heterogeneous technologies. Resulting applications are polyglot service compositions that can
then be shipped in serverful or serverless platforms (e.g., using virtualization technologies).
These characteristics make Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing the natural answers for
fulfilling the industry’s need for flexibly scalable and maintainable enterprise applications, to
be delivered through state-of-the-art methodologies, like DevOps. To further support this,
researchers and practitioners need to create methods, tools and techniques to support
cost-effective and secure development as well as use of dependable devices, platforms,
services and service-oriented applications in the Cloud, now also considering the Cloud-IoT
computing continuum to exploit widespread adoption of smart connected things and the
increasing growth of their computing capabilities.
The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier
conference on advances in the state-of-the-art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing
and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC aims to facilitate the exchange between researchers
and practitioners in the areas of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing, as well as
to explore the new trends in those areas and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
ESOCC 2023 seeks original, high-quality contributions related to all aspects of Service-Oriented
and Cloud computing. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to: • Applications for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, e.g., big data, commerce, energy,
finance, health, scientific computing, smart cities • Blockchains for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Business aspects of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, e.g., business models,
brokerage, marketplaces, costs, pricing • Business processes, e.g., service-based workflow deployment and management • Cloud interoperability, service and Cloud standards, • Cloud-IoT computing continuum, e.g., edge computing, fog computing, mobility computing,
next generation services/IoT • Cloud-native architectures and paradigms, e.g., microservices and DevOps • Cloud service models, e.g., IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, DBaaS, FaaS, etc. • Deployment, composition, and management of applications in Service-Oriented and Cloud
Computing • Foundations and formal methods for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Enablers for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, e.g., service discovery, orchestration,
matchmaking, monitoring, and analytics • Model-Driven Engineering for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Multi-Cloud, cross-Cloud, and federated Cloud solutions • Requirements engineering, design, development, and testing of applications in
Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Semantic services and service mining • Service and Cloud middlewares and platforms • Software/service adaptation and evolution in Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Storage, computation and network Clouds • Sustainability and energy issues in Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing • Quality aspects (e.g., governance, privacy, security, and trust) of Service-Oriented and Cloud
Computing • Quality of Service (QoS) and Service-Level Agreement (SLA) for Service-Oriented and Cloud
Computing • Social aspects of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, e.g., crowdsourcing services, social
and crowd-based Clouds • Virtualization for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, e.g., serverless, container-based
TYPES OF SUBMISSIONS
ESOCC 2023 invites submissions of the following kinds: • Regular Research Papers (15 pages including references, for the technical and special tracks) • PhD Symposium (12 pages including references) • Projects and Industry Reports (Projects and Industry Reports (1 to 6 pages including
references, describing an ongoing EU or national project, or providing industrial perspectives
on innovative applications, technologies, or methods in ESOCC’s scope)
We only accept original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The papers must be
formatted according to the proceedings guidelines of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series (http://www.springer.com/lncs).
They must be submitted to the EasyChair site at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2023 by selecting the right track.
Accepted papers from all tracks will be published in the main conference proceedings by
Springer in the LNCS series. For publication to happen, at least one author of each accepted
paper is expected to register and present the work at the conference.
A journal special issue is planned, and authors of selected accepted papers will be invited to
submit extended versions of their articles.
SPECIAL TRACK PROPOSALS
ESOCC 2023 will host Special Tracks as part of its program. Special Tracks provide a space
where ESOCC participants can discuss, e.g., topics relevant to Service-Oriented and Cloud
Computing even if not explicitly mentioned in ESOCC’s topics of interest, early-stage research ideas
and/or results, or demonstrate industry-ready tools and research prototypes. Special Tracks
may be driven by research interests, needs from specific application domains, or aim at bringing
together practitioners and researchers from the area of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing.
Proposals for special tracks should indicate the title of the Special Track, its aims and scope
(150-300 words), the Special Track chair(s), and the tentative members of the track’s PC.
Please email your proposals as a PDF file to the PC chairs of ESOCC 2023, Florian Rademacher
(florian.rademacher at fh-dortmund.de) and Jacopo Soldani (jacopo.soldani at unipi.it). Special
Tracks will be selected for ESOCC 2023 using a lightweight review process.
Chairs of accepted Special Tracks can devise a Call for Papers for their track, which will be
published on ESOCC 2023 website, together with the provided information on the track (title,
aims and scope, PC). The Call for Papers for their track will then be disseminated alongside
that of ESOCC, and submissions will be handled through the EasyChair of ESOCC, which will
include a special track link. Papers accepted for Special Tracks will be included in the main
conference proceedings of ESOCC 2023, published by Springer in the LNCS series. Special
Track chairs, presenters, and participants will be required to register through the ESOCC 2023
