*** Aims, Scope and Topics
In our society which has already turned to a service providing society, the technical aspects as well as the human, social and economic aspects must be considered together. This has already resulted in considerable research on these aspects that are related to disciplines like Information Systems, Software Engineering and Service Science, as for example, how empirical research should be conducted, what are the conditions for "valid" knowledge, and which the scope of theories in these fields are. These are elements that are of interest from perspectives as diverse as philosophy, engineering and technology. For example, the material and temporal entities that are dealt with in the field are a matter of ontology, and the conditions for credibility of statements and research methods are a matter of epistemology. Hence the relationship and influences between software, information systems and service science will be studied from an ontological view point, but with a broad perspective under which researchers with different background can meet and truly multi-disciplinary issues can arise.
As in the previous Editions the main goal of this event is to allow challenging and promising cross-fertilization over multidisciplinary research areas to be tackled and investigated by all the participants. The design of systems in which parts have complex interactions, more and more the understanding of theoretical, epistemological and conceptual frameworks coming from the human and social sciences.
Topics therefore include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Ontology and formal ontology representations of Software Engineering,
Systems Engineering, Service Engineering and Information Systems.
- Studies and essays about metrics, indicators and general issues regarding research on Software, Services and Systems Engineering.
- Conceptualizations, bodies of knowledge or schemas for software
engineering, service engineering and information systems.
- Applications that deal with representations of concepts and relations of
- Social, psychological and organizational issues about the disciplines.
- Epistemological and philosophical aspect of software and service development.
- Architectural patterns and ontologies for the design of high-quality
- UML and other modelling frameworks for services.
- Ontologies in requirements engineering, intensional and goal modelling in
the context of services
- Ontology driven development of service software.
- Natural language verbalization of service ontologies.
- Social, technical and economic impacts on IS and service sciences.
- Ontologies and models for the Quality of service.
- Customer satisfaction.
- Ontologies and process models.
- Ontologies and models to improve the service efficiency
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Internet of Services and Things
Accepted papers will be published in the online CEUR-WS Workshop proceedings. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a journal.
