Call For Papers

***The 11th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2013)***

***Call for PhD Symposium Papers***


The ICSOC PhD Symposium 2013 is an international forum for PhD
students working in all the areas addressed by the ICSOC conference
( The goals of the ICSOC PhD Symposium are:

- To bring together PhD students and established researchers in the
field of service oriented computing.

- To enable PhD students to interact with other PhD students and to
stimulate an exchange of ideas, suggestions, and experiences among

- To give PhD students the opportunity to present, share and discuss their
research in a constructive and critical atmosphere.

- To provide students with fruitful feedback and advice on their research
approach and thesis.

We particularly encourage students that are still developing their research
methodology or are somewhere in the middle of their research program to submit
to this symposium.
Only active PhD students are eligible to submit, and topics are restricted to
their doctoral work within the scope of the ICSOC conference.

This year, as part of the symposium programme,each author of an accepted paper
will be paired with a senior member of the field as a mentor.
Each pair will have a breakfast or a lunch together during the conference,
to discuss the research topics and possible alternative approaches and solutions.

The symposium in Berlin, Germany, will be the 9th PhD Symposium of the
series held in conjunction with the ICSOC conferences in
Shanghai, China (2012),
Paphos, Cyprus (2011),
San Francisco, USA (2010),
Stockholm, Sweden (2009),
Sydney, Australia (2008),
Vienna, Austria (2007),
Chicago, USA (2006), and
Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2005).


Submitted papers should give a clear description of the PhD work being conducted by the
author of the paper. In particular, papers must:

- Provide a clear problem statement.

- Outline the research challenges that drive the proposed work.

- Describe the proposed solution, its expected impact, the expected research plan,
and -if available- preliminary results.

- Discuss the progress beyond the state of the art of the envisioned research outcome
compared to current literature and approaches (cite key papers).

Each paper must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format" and must be at most 6
pages in length (strictly enforced). Submissions must be
single-author, and the name of the supervisor(s) must be clearly
marked ("supervised by ...") under the authors name.

events, to be published by Springer as part of the Service Science


Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the PhD
Symposium Program Committee.
The main evaluation criteria are:
relevance to service-oriented computing, potential for impact, quality
of proposed research. The selection of papers will be based on these

In order to stimulate the discussion during the symposium, students
accepted for participation will be asked to write their own reviews of
two/three other accepted papers.

The symposium will operate in a workshop format, giving PhD students
the opportunity to showcase their research and to discuss possible alternative
