Call For Papers

The “European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing” (ESOCC) is the premier conference on the advances in the state of the art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC has evolved from the ECOWS (European Conference on Web Services) conference series, after the Steering Committee decided to renew and broaden its scope, and to start a new conference series on advanced topics of service-oriented and cloud computing. The first edition of the new series, ESSOC 2012, was successfully held in Bertinoro, Italy, and will be continued by ESOCC 2013 in Malaga, Spain. The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of SOC and Cloud Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. ESOCC 2013 will include invited talks, presentations of selected research papers and an industrial track with the participation of top researchers from industry. ESOCC 2013 will also include a PhD symposium and a series of satellite workshops.

Background

The continued success of service-oriented distributed applications has shown that tightly coupled software systems may be useful for niche markets, whereas loosely coupled software systems have proven to be more flexible, adaptive and often more appropriate for practical applications. Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system to interact with other system components − including legacy systems − that have been developed independently somewhere in a heterogeneous universe of services. Thus, service-oriented applications can evolve more easily during their lifespan and adapt better to changing or even unpredictable environments. In such scenarios, cloud computing enables a new execution paradigm for distributed software application where resources can be shared, optimally realized as well as utilised and exchanged between heterogeneous execution platforms and the cloud, so as to achieve fast response times and to ensure immersive and non-interrupted user experience.

Services today are developed independently, deployed as well as freely composed, and they can be implemented in a variety of technologies – a fact which is of particular importance from a business perspective. Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling mobility as well as device, platform and/or service independence by offering centralized sharing of resources. It promotes interoperability, portability and security standards, and raises a completely new set of security issues. On the implementation side, essential agreement has been reached on integration technologies and consensus has emerged in today's middleware market. Customers use web technologies extensively; however, service developers, providers, and integrators need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective and secure development and use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-oriented applications in the cloud.

Topics of interest

ESOCC 2013 seeks original, high quality papers related to all aspects of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, which constitute the main technology available to date for implementing service-oriented architectures and cloud computing. Topics of interest to the Research and Industry Tracks include, but are not limited to:

Business Process Management and Web Services.
Cloud Services Management and Composition using Web Services.
Dynamic and Adaptive Web Services.
Economics Models and Web Services.
Enterprise Architecture and Web Services.
Emerging Trends of Service Composition and Mashups.
Experience reports of novel applications of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing in Health, Commerce, Finance, Telecom, Scientific Computing and other domains.
Service modelling, service-oriented analysis and design.
Formal Methods for Web Services.
Frameworks for Building Web Service-Based Applications.
Architectural Models for Cloud Computing.
Identity and Access Management using Web Services.
Mobile Web Services.
Model-Driven Web Service Engineering.
Next Generation Web Services Middleware and Service Repositories.
Service quality and service interface design guidelines.
RESTful for Clouds and Web Services.
Self-Organizing Service Oriented Architectures.
Semantic Web Services.
Service Level Agreements for Web services.
Service-Oriented Business Collaboration.
SOA Governance and Web Services.
Social Web Services.
Web Services for Grids and Clouds.
Web Services in Service-Oriented Environments.

ESOCC 2013 solicits both new research papers (in the main track) as well as reports on practical experiences from industry (industry track). However, papers on existing products or product marketing information are not within the scope of the ESOCC 2013 Industry Track.

PhD Symposium

The ESOCC 2013 PhD Symposium is an international forum for PhD students working in any of the areas addressed by the ESOCC conference. The main aim of the Symposium is to give PhD students an opportunity to present their research activity and perspectives, to critically discuss them with other PhD students and with established researchers in the area, and to get fruitful feedback and advices on their research activity. PhD students working in any area addressed by the ESOCC conference can submit a short report providing a clear statement of the problem they intend to address, motivating the interest and novelty of the underlying research challenges, demonstrating the ideas by examples, and describing the proposed research plan and expected results. Reports should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines. The papers should be authored by the PhD student and indicate the name of her/his supervisor. Submissions must be sent by email to the symposium chair Wolf Zimmermann (wolf.zimmermann@informatik.uni-halle.de).

Submission guidelines

Original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be submitted via EasyChair.
