The WESOACS series of workshops addresses challenges that arise from
unique characteristics of service-oriented applications by focusing on
principles, methodologies and tools that support the entire
service-oriented software development and cloud services lifecycle.

Topics of interest include software service development lifecycle
methodologies, service-oriented enterprise architectures, service
engineering for cloud computing environments, models, languages and
methods for service-oriented analysis and design, agile processes,
microservices, agile processes, microservices, continuous delivery,
container and cloud technologies, and related topics.

WESOACS 2017 continues a successful series of ICSOC workshops. Over the
past decade, WESOA has demonstrated its relevance by attracting a large
number of contributors and participants from academia as well as
industry, and producing high-quality papers that were published by
Springer LNCS series.


Service-oriented applications play an important role in many areas like
enterprise computing, cloud computing and the web. While there is an
agreement about the main principles for designing and developing such
applications, methodologies and tools that support the development of
service-oriented applications are still a subject of intensive research.

It is recognized that traditional software engineering approaches
require extensions in the context of service-oriented computing and that
there is a need for engineering methods to support the development of
software services (incl. microservices). In this area, close collaboration
between the research community and industry practitioners is essential to
develop comprehensive engineering methodologies and tools that support the
entire lifecycle of service-oriented applications.

WESOA complements ICSOC by focusing on core software engineering issues
in the context of service-oriented systems, keeping pace with emerging
application areas of service computing such mobile, social, cloud
computing, smart environments and IoT.


WESOACS encourages a transdisciplinary perspective and welcomes papers on
topics that include, but are not limited to the following:

- Software service development lifecycle methodologies and processes
- Distributed and collaborative software service development
- Service-oriented reference models and frameworks
- Architectural styles and standards for software service and cloud systems
- Management and governance of service engineering and DevOps projects
- Models, languages and methods for service-oriented analysis and design
- Requirements engineering and business process modelling for software service systems
- Validation, verification and testing of software service systems
- Engineering of software services for the cloud
- Service engineering for context-awareness and mobile devices
- Engineering service-oriented applications in social network contexts
- Engineering of reactive and event-driven service systems
- Reliability of cloud-based services
- Architectures and frameworks for microservices
- Engineering services for the Internet of Things and Big Data
- Case studies and best practices of service-oriented development
- DevOps: Methodologies, techniques, tools and case studies
- Container Technologies
- Services Synthesis and Integration
- Automation of Processes and Tasks (Testing, Reconfiguration, Deployment, Resource Management)
- Cloud Resource Management
- Continuous Delivery and Process Improvement


Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished research
papers. Papers should be written in English strictly following Springer
LNCS style for all text, references, appendices, and figures.
Please, submit papers via the WESOA conference management tool
( in PDF format.
For formatting instructions and templates see the Springer Web

The following types of submissions are accepted:
