Call For Papers

The 6th IEEE International Workshop of Software Engineering for Adaptive Service-oriented Systems (SEASS'12)

Workshop Theme: Engineering Adaptive Service Oriented Solutions for Domain Specific Systems

One day between June 24-29 2012, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, within IEEE SERVICES 2012


Service computing has become the principle of building Internet-based programmable applications. The feature of services using standard interface descriptions makes services universally available via uniform communication protocol. Disparate applications and systems can be integrated as services. This significantly promotes service computing widely adopted by variety of domains such as health cares, government services, and scientific systems.
The complexity and scale of composite service oriented systems is increasing rapidly and often involve not only a large number of parties but also intensive data sets communicated between services. The computing and data intensity of services leads to increasing adoption of cloud platforms as the infrastructure to deploy services. For example, service oriented architecture has been applied to compose scientific workflows running on extremely large datasets on cloud platforms. The In the cloud environment, a service can elastically scale up and down its demands on computing resources and pay for its meter-based usage. In such an environment, services are becoming commodities. Meeting users' expectation on reliability, availability and fast service responsiveness is key to gain the values of services. Adaptation is an enabling mechanism to achieve this goal. For example, detecting and even predict abnormal behaviours at runtime can certainly help to prevent degrading quality of services.

These impose challenges for adaptive service systems at their design, development and deployment stage. In the previous series of this workshop, the papers have broadly addressed the issues from the aspects of individual adaptive software architectures, adaptive service level agreement and versioning, development and testing processes for adaptive systems.

In the 6th edition of this workshop we aim to deeply identify the future research challenges in engineering adaptation into ever evolving service systems in different domains. The aim of SEASS 2012 is to encourage academic researchers and industry practitioners to present and discuss all adaptability-related research and experiences in a very broad spectrum of service oriented computing. Special interests are on papers addressing adaptive solutions to bridge service oriented computing and domain specific systems.

Selected top papers will be invited to a special issue of International Journal of Systems and Service-Oriented Engineering (IJSSOE).
