Call for Papers: 4th International Workshop on
Service Orientation in Computing and Logistics (SOC-LOG 2016)

In conjunction with the 19th International Conference
on Business Information Systems (BIS 2016)

July 6-8, 2016, Leipzig, Germany

Workshop Theme
Service orientation has become a prevalent paradigm for engineering
and managing new forms of smart, highly integrative, usage-based
business ecosystems. Its significance is being increasingly recognized
by research communities that study new approaches for establishing
smart service offerings in different domains. Logistics is a service
domain that has a particularly high potential of benefiting from
service orientation and service-based systems. The objective of
logistics is to service individual firms, supply chains and entire
industries with flexible means for realizing flows of goods from the
point of origin to the point of destination. Logistics relies
essentially on the ability to: (1) share resources of different
organizations, (2) provide complex services based on configurations
of elementary services, (3) coordinate service delivery across
organizations, and (4) maintain an agreed quality of service. These
requirements match closely to the key characteristics of service-based
systems. While recent advances in the engineering and management of
such systems have been made, still many questions regarding the design
of the models and methods to be used as well as their efficacy and
usefulness remain to be answered.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners
from different, though overlapping areas: services computing, information
systems, and logistics/supply chain management. The objective is to to
discuss the state of the art, on-going projects and open research
questions at the intersection of services computing and logistics/supply
chain management. The workshop intends to provide a forum for discussing
research approaches that will (1) enhance the understanding of the problem
domain, (2) provide ideas to solving important problems either in the
domain or the models and methods, or (3) evaluate models and methods of
services computing by reporting their use through, e.g., case study,
experimentation, simulation. The workshop is not restricted to particular
research methods and we will consider both conceptual, theoretical
and empirical research, as well as novel applications.

Topics of Interest
In particular, we are inviting papers on the following topics:
1) Logistics services representation
- Servitization of logistics systems
- Modularization of services
- Logistics service models
- Reference models for logistics services
- Semantic models for logistics services
- Repositories and dictionaries for logistics services
2) Logistics services description
- Syntactical description of logistics services
- Semantic description of logistics services
- Logistics ontologies / ontologies for logistics services
- QoS attributes of logistics services
- Contextual and mobility aspects of logistics services
3) Coordination of logistics services
- Discovery of logistics services
- Composition of logistics services
- Orchestration and choreography of logistics services
- Market-based coordination of logistics services, i.e., auctions, exchanges
- Data-driven logistics service coordination
4) Management of logistics services
- Logistics service lifecycle management
- Logistics service governance, risk and compliance
- Logistics service portfolio management
- Logistics service level management
- Logistics service privacy and security management
- Domain-specific SLA models and semantic annotation of SLAs
- SLA negotiation protocols for logistics services
- Accounting, pricing, monitoring of logistics services
- Integrating logistics services into service management infrastructures
5) Delivery of logistics services
- Logistics service runtime management and monitoring
- Verification of logistics services
- Simulation and optimization of logistics services
- Transactional safeguarding of logistics services
- Service-oriented architectures for the setup and enactment
- Technologies for service deliveries

Paper Submission and Publication
Authors are invited to submit original research papers, as
- Full papers (up to 12 pages including references) or
- Work-in-progress papers (up to 6 pages including references)
on the listed or related topics.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format according to the Springer LNBIP
template. All submissions must be blinded and will be peer-reviewed
by at least three members of the program committee.

Please submit papers via our electronic submission system which is
available at

At least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the
conference for the paper to be included in proceedings.

Revised papers presented at the workshop will be published in BIS 2016
post-workshop proceedings, as a volume in Springer’s Lecture Notes in
Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. To achieve the highest
quality, revised papers will go through a second review round.
