Call For Papers

The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on
Software Engineering for Adaptive Software Systems
SEASS 2008
Theme: Empowering Web Services with Adaptability

In conjunction with IEEE International Conference on
Web Services (ICWS2008) September 23-26 2008, Beijing China

Call for Papers:

Web services have been driving service-oriented architecture (SOA), promising not only a new paradigm for B2B collaboration, but also more opportunities for the creation of value-added services and new business models. While SOA presents a harmonious and exciting picture for enterprise applications, a variety of classical and emerging challenges arise when deploying and operating an SOA in dynamic environments. These include how to rapidly and accurately discover and bind to the "right" service; how to automatically negotiate an SLA among a group of collaborative services; how to check/resolve policy conflicts between these services; how to monitor and audit these service behaviours and QoS at runtime; how to handle exceptions of long-running transactions across loosely coupling services, and so on. All of these challenges share a similar requirement for Web services: building adaptability in Web services so that they can adapt to accommodate heterogeneity of interface and QoS, resolve conflicts and handle faults in a dynamic environment at runtime.
Following the success of SEASS-2007, SEASS-2008 will bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners to present and discuss adaptability-related research and experiences especially within SOA and web services domains. The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

- Software architecture support for enhancing SOA adaptability, including
- Standards and protocols proposals or extension for dynamic collaborations among services
- Requirement analysis for adaptation in SOA
- Negotiation protocols for SLA and dynamic service binding
- Policy definition, confliction checking and resolving and enforcement at runtime
- Testing, configuration and deployment for adaptive service management
- Patterns, best practices and experience reports in adaptation development for a class of web service applications
- Adaptive service development process
- Adaptive service engineering

Submission Guidelines:

- Full research papers (up to 8 pages) are invited for this workshop. Short papers (up to 6 pages) on industry applications/experiences and work-on-progress are also welcome. All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members.

- The manuscripts are required to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template (
