Call For Papers

The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier conference on the advances in the state of the art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC has evolved from the ECOWS (European Conference on Web Services) conference series, after the Steering Committee decided to renew and broaden its scope, and to start a new conference series on advanced topics of service-oriented and cloud computing.

The first edition of the new series, ESOCC 2012, was successfully held in Bertinoro, Italy, the second edition, ESOCC 2013, was held in Malaga, Spain, the third edition, ESOCC 2014 was held in Manchester, UK and will be continued by ESOCC 2015 in Taormina (Messina), Italy.

The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of SOC and Cloud Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. ESOCC 2015 will include invited talks, presentations of selected research papers, industrial, business model (BM) and work in progress (WIP) tracks papers with the participation of top researchers from academia and industry. ESOCC 2015 will also include a PhD Symposium and a series of satellite workshops.


The continued success of service-oriented distributed applications has shown that tightly coupled software systems may be useful for niche markets, whereas loosely coupled software systems have proven to be more flexible, adaptive and often more appropriate for practical applications.

Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system to interact with other system components (including legacy systems) that have been developed independently somewhere in a heterogeneous universe of services. Thus, service-oriented applications can evolve more easily during their lifespan and adapt better to changing or even unpredictable environments. In such scenarios, cloud computing enables a new execution paradigm for distributed software application where resources can be shared, optimally realized as well as utilized and exchanged between heterogeneous execution platforms and the cloud, so as to achieve fast response times and to ensure immersive and non-interrupted user experience.

Services today are developed independently, deployed as well as freely composed, and they can be implemented in a variety of technologies a fact which is of particular importance from a business perspective.

Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling mobility as well as device, platform and/or service independence by offering centralized sharing of resources. It promotes interoperability, portability and security standards, and raises a completely new set of security issues. On the implementation side, essential agreement has been reached on integration technologies and consensus has emerged in today’s middleware market. Customers use web technologies extensively; however, service developers, providers, and integrators need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective and secure development and use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-oriented applications in the cloud.

ESOCC 2015 solicits both new research papers (in the main track and BM), papers on early research initiatives in WIP, as well as reports on practical experiences from industry (industry track). However, papers on existing products or product marketing information are not within the scope of the ESOCC 2015 Industry Track.


Original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be submitted using this link: for:

Research papers
Industry-Track papers
Business Model Track papers
Work In Progress (WIP) Track papers
