PDSCbook 2010 : Performance and Dependability in Service Computing: Concepts, Techniques and Research Directions
Call For Papers
** Call for Book Chapter Proposals **
PERFORMANCE AND DEPENDABILITY IN SERVICE COMPUTING:
CONCEPTS, TECHNIQUES AND RESEARCH DIRECTIONS
To be published by IGI Global
Book web site: http://www.icmc.usp.br/~pdsc/
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE (Abstract): March 1, 2010 (extended deadline)
OBJECTIVE OF THE BOOK AND TARGET AUDIENCE
The book is a research-oriented introduction to the main
challenges related to performance and dependability in
service computing and to directions for future investigation.
It is intended for specialists from both academy and industry
interested in performance and dependability issues in
the context of service computing.
The book is intended for an audience of researchers and
engineers who are interested in distributed computing, databases,
and e-Business (primary application areas of service-oriented computing)
and graduate students who wish to learn and spot the opportunities for
their studies in this emerging research and development area.
The book will also be of general interest to anyone using the
service paradigms for software development, particularly in developing
high performance and dependable applications.
The book content will be organized in three main parts: foundations,
engineering and deployment. The first part will address research issues
concerning conceptual and methodological aspects of service computing.
The second part will focus on advances in service computing technology
and implementation including monitoring and testing aspects.
The third part will be devoted to the deployment of service computing as a platform.
Recommended topics for chapters include, but are not limited to, the list below.
- Models, methodologies, and tools for performance evaluation of service-oriented
- System and service dependability
- Security and privacy issues and concerns
- Integration of dependability and security concepts
- QoS and SLA in service-oriented computing
- Real-time issues in service-oriented computing
- System engineering issues (including energy aspects) in service-oriented computing
- Self-adaptive service-oriented architectures
- Performance and dependability issues for pervasive service-oriented computing
- Implementation and deployment technologies
- Real-world experiences
- Criticism on current models and technologies
