Call For Papers

Along with the stronger capability of computing devices and the
cheaper and faster communication networks, computing will be embedded
in all types of physical resources, and applications with big societal
impact and economic benefit will be created in time and across space.
The tight conjoining of, and coordination between, computational (or
cyber) and physical resources for achieving this kind of applications
are the objectives of cyber physical systems. Generally, cyber
physical systems feature a tight integration between computation,
communication, and control in their operation and interactions with
the task environment in which they are deployed. The concept of
capability, that is the semantics of an action or specific
functionality, is therefore a cornerstone in modern cyber physical
society, especially those service or process aware. Dedicated
techniques for capability management and engineering can be applied
and reused in a large number of areas such as SOA, BPM, Clo
ud Computing and Internet of Things and will certainly boost several
related research efforts in these areas.

While the cyber physical society describes the future environment of
collaboration, nowadays, service oriented architecture (SOA) and
business process management (BPM) are coined to specify how the
computational resources can coordinate and collaborate, and (wireless)
sensor networks (SNs) provide means to sensing the physical resources
and interconnecting physical and cyber resources. Leveraging existing
techniques (SOA, BPM, and SNs, for instance) for achieving the vision
of cyber physical society is promising. The core scientific problems
include the scalability, heterogeneity, integration, security, and the
dynamics of the underlying infrastructures. The data management, as
well as the semantic interoperability, in the cyber physical society
is also posing a great challenge. Many key techniques for service and
process engineering involve capability-based engineering at first.
However, despite the importance of this concept, it has not been
treated as a first-class citizen and has always been hidden behind other encompassing concepts such as
the notions of service and business process. Capability management and
engineering techniques need to deal with several research problems
that arise in different contexts. These problems include, among
others, capability complexity, different levels of abstraction and
granularity, and capability configurability and dynamicity. This track
aims at shedding the light on the importance of capability engineering
as well as at bringing together researchers and practitioners working
in capability engineering to achieve the vision of cyber physical
society by means of current techniques.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scopes:

* Capability Engineering in Cyber physical systems
* Capability description, modeling, matching and composition
* Capability catalogues/repositories: organisation, navigation and visualisation
* Non Functional properties of capabilities in cyber physical society
* Heterogeneous resources integration for SOA/BPM/SNs in
Capability-based cyber physical society
* Semantic interoperability for SOA/BPM/SNs in Capability-based cyber
physical society
* Semantic web for the Collaboration in Capability-based cyber physical society
* Semantic data management in the sensor networks/cyber physical society
* Service oriented computing in Capability-based cyber physical society
* Business process management in Capability-based cyber physical society
* Sensor networks in Capability-based cyber physical society
* Capability-based application classification and indexing
* SOA, BPM and SNs for Capability-based pervasive systems
* Ontologies and vocabularies for domain-specific capabilities
* Capability-based cloud computing management

Submission Guidelines

Papers should be submitted in the English Language, in the PDF format
and in conformance with IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines format.
Instructions for authors are available at:
Two types of papers can be submitted:
Regular papers, with a size, from 6 pages, describing mature and complete work.
Short papers, with a size from 3 pages, describing a work in progress
that is soon going to reach a mature stage. Papers have to present
original research contributions and must not have been submitted
All papers will be evaluated through a rigorous peer-review process,
based on originality, scope (relevance to the workshop), and technical
Authors must upload their paper as PDF file using the EasyChair
submission system: The review
process will be a double-blinded peer-review.

Proceedings and Special Journal Issue

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of "Wertice 2014",
published by IEEE. Selected papers will be considered for extension
and publication in a special issue of a journal.

Important Dates

- Paper submission deadline : February 28, 2014
- Notification of acceptance: March 26, 2014
- WETICE-2013 Conference: June 23-25, 2014
