P E S O S 2 0 1 0 -- The Second International Workshop on
Principles of Engineering Service-Oriented Systems

Cape Town, South Africa, May 1-2 (tentative), 2010

In Conjunction with the 32nd ACM/IEEE International Conference
on Software Engineering (ICSE 2010)

Submission: January 11, 2010
Notification: February 20, 2010


Service-oriented systems represent a new class of software systems, in
which software is being used and integrated as temporary services rather
than being 'physically' integrated and owned permanently by the software
user. Those services are loosely-coupled, autonomous software entities
owned by third parties and representing different functionality, which
can be combined to support dynamic business processes. Thereby, service-
oriented systems provide a more flexible approach to software develop-
ment, provisioning and maintenance, allowing addressing the dynamics of
a system's environment and continuously evolving requirements.

Service-oriented systems have attracted great interest from industry and
research communities worldwide. Service integrators, developers, and
providers are collaborating to address the various challenges in the

PESOS 2010 is intended to provide a forum for presenting and discussing
a wide range of topics related to service-oriented systems. The aim of
PESOS is to bring together researchers from academia and industry, as
well as practitioners working in the areas of software engineering and
service-oriented systems to discuss research challenges, recent develop-
ments, novel applications, as well as methods, techniques, experiences,
and tools to support the engineering and use of service-oriented systems.

The workshop seeks contributions that address theoretical foundations,
practical techniques, empirical studies, experience, and lessons learned
related to service-oriented systems.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: January 11, 2010
Notification of acceptance: February 20, 2010
Camera-ready copy: March 3, 2010
PESOS 2010 in Cape Town: May 1-2, 2010 (tentative)


PESOS 2010 will place special emphasis on understanding user-centric
aspects, i.e., all the aspects related to the participation of human
actors during the specification, design, implementation, verification,
validation, deployment, and operation of service-oriented systems.
This includes contributions that discuss what activities can be auto-
mated (e.g., replacing human intervention) and for which activities
user interaction and involvement will remain key.

The workshop seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the
following topics:

* Service-oriented software system life-cycle
* Specification of service-oriented systems
* Requirements for service-oriented systems
* Design and architecture of service-oriented systems
* Verification, validation, and testing of services and
service-oriented systems
* Evolution and maintenance of service-oriented systems
* Adaptation of service-oriented systems
* Service description, discovery, and composition
* Service semantics and interoperability
* Service deployment, binding, and monitoring
* Resource organization and management in service-oriented systems
* Service-oriented business process integration and management
* Service personalization and context-aware provisioning
* Service dependability, survivability, and reliability
* Trust, security, and privacy in service-oriented systems
* Quality of service
* Service visualization and re-factorization


All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality,
technical quality and relevance to the workshop theme. Besides research
papers, experience papers and practical reports on industrial case
studies are particularly welcome.

Papers must be no longer than seven pages and follow the ICSE 2010 paper
format. Directions on how to submit will be provided on the PESOS website.

The submission process for the workshop will be managed using EasyChair.

The workshop proceedings will be published together with the ICSE
proceedings on the ACM digital library. Authors of accepted papers must
register for the workshop.
