SOSE 2014 : 8th International Symposium on Service Oriented System Engineering
Conference Series : Service Oriented Software Engineering
Call For Papers
From its founding in 2005, IEEE SOSE has become established as one of the leading international symposiums devoted to state-of-the-art research (both academic and industrial) into the engineering of service-oriented systems such as Cloud Computing and Web Services, with over 200 members of academia and industry attending our 2013 event.
Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as the fundamental elements for developing computer-based systems, and represents a paradigm shift away from traditional distributed systems architecture, design, implementation, testing, evaluation, delivery, consumption, maintenance and evolution.
In recent years, service-oriented systems - and the data they generate and process - are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, large-scale, and complex. Systems are often distributed across large numbers of resources in different geographical locations running on heterogeneous infrastructure, with a large and increasing number of diverse users, and with requirements for generating, storing, processing, and understanding "big data" that demand new data management and processing tools.
The theme of the symposium is System Engineering for Large-Scale Computing and Analytics.
Continuing the tradition of the last seven SOSE Symposia, the 8th SOSE will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights, achievements and visions in Service-Oriented System Engineering. Particularly, SOSE 2014 invites original submissions in all areas of system engineering, as well as software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software services.

C. Survey and Emerging Subjects Tutorial Papers
In addition to regular research paper and industry practice/case study paper sessions, SOSE 2013 will also invite some tutorial papers, which review the state-of-the-art of the research on services engineering as well as the related emerging paradigms and technologies. These papers should summarize the recent research advance in service engineering from different perspectives, identify the open issues and future trends and challenges in the field. SOSE 2013 also encourages discussion papers which target at the visions on future related issues, including the emerging paradigms, technologies and applications.
