Call For Papers

European Symposium on Serverless Computing and Applications (ESSCA 2018)
Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland, December 21, 2018

In conjunction with:
11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing
(UCC 2018) & 5th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data
Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT 2018)

ESSCA brings together scientific progress with industrial requirements
for future serverless development practices and application
architectures. A full-day event for learning and demonstrating the
latest in tech and research on cloud functions!

For the Scientific Track of the event, we welcome original, decent
technical and scientific contributions of any form related to cloud
functions, Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), serverless computing and
applications, as well as related technologies (microservices, cloud
platforms, composition, ecosystems). All papers submitted to ESSCA will
be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers in single-blind mode.

We particularly welcome elaborations on the following topics:
* Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) concepts and programming paradigms
* FaaS execution and orchestration environments
* Stateful service bindings and data management in lambdas
* Concepts for serverless microservice design and implementation
* Mixed-technology integration (gateways, containers etc.)
* User-facing applications built with serverless architectures
* Experimental and analytical serverless service comparisons
* Patterns for building and composing cloud functions
* Open source tools for development/deployment/execution of functions
* Economic considerations of pay-per-invocation pricing
* Wider ecosystem including cloud function languages and marketplaces

-- Submission process:

Submission site:

Submission deadline: September 1, 2018 (AOE)
Acceptance notification: September 15, 2018
Registration: November 1, 2018
Symposium: December 21, 2018
Post-symposium camera-ready version: December 31, 2018

Proceedings of ESSCA will be submitted to for online
publication and rapid dissemination after the symposium. The
proceedings will contain all camera-ready papers, as well as abstracts
on industry talks, tutorials, discussion rounds and other relevant

-- Submission guidelines:

We solicit high-quality technical papers in double-column format. Please
use the template at 'cfp/essca-example.tex' as indicated on the event
website. Papers are either 5 pages long for regular presentations or 8
pages for in-depth technical presentations. Due to the novelty of the
topic, we welcome position and vision papers with up to 5 pages as well.

-- Journal special issue:

Authors of the highest-rated technical papers will be invited to submit
a revised and extended version of their work to a special issue in a
leading cloud computing journal. Details will be posted soon at the
event website.
