Call For Papers

11th IEEE International Symposium on Service-Oriented System
Engineering (SOSE 2017)

Theme: Intelligent and Analytic Services

Starting from 2005, the International Symposium on Service-Oriented
System Engineering (SOSE) is one of the pioneering symposia devoted to
the research and development in engineering service-oriented systems,
from the architecture and computing paradigm to the system development
and management. Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as
the fundamental elements in developing and operating computer-based
systems. It has been successfully applied to various application
domains and promotes fundamental changes to system architecture,
especially changing the way software systems to be analyzed,
architected, designed, implemented, verified, evaluated, delivered,
consumed, maintained, and evolved.

The innovations of SOC also offer many interesting avenues of research
for scientific and industrial communities. Recent advances in service
oriented computing and cloud computing, including computational power,
storage, and networking, and infrastructure innovations, are providing
exciting opportunities to make significant progress in understanding
and addressing complex real-world challenges. Such challenges
typically require a system-level approach that models a complex system
at different levels of abstraction, helps to develop sound
architectures for addressing separate system requirements and
concerns, and integrates diverse sources of knowledge on the system's
components and their interactions.

The 11th International Symposium on Service-Oriented System
Engineering (SOSE 2017) provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners to present and exchange latest observations, insights,
achievements, and visions in the Service-Oriented System Engineering.
Particularly, SOSE 2017 invites original submissions in all the
aspects of the system engineering and software engineering methods,
techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software
