Call For Papers

The workshop on Intelligent Service Clouds follows the increasing interest in big data, cloud, analytics services and rich combinations with human driven services. We use the term intelligent service clouds as a broad category of (1) cloud deployed, defined, operated or enabled services or ecosystems which may (2) leverage the power of automated and human-centric services, (3) in order to enable creation of insights or value, (4) potentially operating with big data. Here intelligent may refer to many possible capabilities - e.g., the ability to generate insights; or the ability to enable new types or styles of collaborations within or between enterprises; or the ability of services to adapt to changing environments, etc. The goal of the workshop is to provide a platform for exploring this exciting landscape and new challenges in the context of intelligent service clouds. It aims at bringing together researchers from various communities interested in the challenges.


Expected papers deal with methods, models, techniques, case studies and practical experiences related to intelligent service clouds. Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- At the solution side approaches that address specific technical intelligent service-oriented cloud solutions for socio-technical systems e.g.
analytics: mining, visualization;
privacy and security / trust, privacy and security management in cross-organizational interactions;
trust mechanisms;
collaboration mechanisms;
data model to support Cloud analytics;
cloud analytics architecture;
quality of analytics services;
cloud service composition;
mixed private/public cloud environments for analytics services;
system reliability;
migration to cloud;
analysis of cloud workloads;
API challenges
service models of Cloud analytics

- At the problem side: case studies in which intelligent service-oriented cloud computing technologies are applied
socio-technical systems/processes like smart logistics, smart manufacturing, or
analysis of social media data
analysis of social relationships among participants in business processes and its implications for businesses
analytics service in emerging domains

- Models, methods, formalisms, and languages that focus on control and coordination of
cloud services involving cross-enterprise collaboration among business services,
socially-enhanced services and human-provided services in different domains
integration of human and automated services

- Ecosystems for service-oriented cloud computing, their secure, dependable and sustainable engineering, maintenance and dissolution.
- Big data in service clouds with data mining for knowledge extraction and information logistics with dynamic mashups.
- Techniques for aligning service clouds operational level to business strategy and high-level goals of an enterprise.
- Extending SOA-formalisms, encapsulations, and constructs to facilitate the definition, dispatch, and orchestration of human cloud services
- IT, middleware, systems, tools, and framework that support smart service clouds
- Human centric approaches to operations and optimization of smart service clouds, such as gamification, collaboration, and crowd-sourcing methods and techniques and their applications

Submission Instructions

The workshop solicits original research and practice papers on the above topics. Submitted papers will be evaluated according to their rigor, significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.

Full papers are not to exceed 12 LNCS pages including all references and figures. Short papers, up to 6 LNCS pages, can present new ideas and preliminary results. All papers must be prepared in the Springer LNCS format and be submitted electronically in PDF.

The postproceedings of the workshops will be published by Springer in a joint LNCS volume with the other ICSOC workshops.

Submission deadline: EXTENDED Sep 5, 2014
Decision: September 21, 2014
Camera Ready Paper: September 30, 2014
