ICSOC 2019 : The 17th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing
Conference Series : International Conference on Service Oriented Computing
Call For Papers
Call for Research/Industry Papers
ICSOC, the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, is the premier international forum for academics, industry researchers, developers, and practitioners to report and share groundbreaking work in service-oriented computing. ICSOC fosters cross-community scientific excellence by gathering experts from various disciplines, such as business-process management, distributed systems, computer networks, wireless and mobile computing, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, networking, scientific workflows, services science, data science, management science, and software engineering.
ICSOC provides a high-quality forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further our knowledge and understanding of the various aspects (e.g. application and system aspects) related to Service Computing applied to new application areas and gain insights into a variety of computing, networked, and cyber-physical systems ranging from mobile devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications to large-scale cloud computing systems and the smart grid.
ICSOC 2019 , the 17th event in this series, will take place in Toulouse, France from October 28 to October 31, 2019. Following on the ICSOC tradition, it will feature visionary keynote presentations, research and industry presentations, workshops, tool demonstrations, tutorials, and a Ph.D. track.

The conference solicits outstanding original research and practice papers on all aspects of service-oriented computing. Papers should clearly demonstrate the research or practical contribution, the relevance to the field, and the relationship to prior work. Submitted papers will be evaluated according to their rigor, significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.
Papers should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS Formatting Guidelines. Submissions must be in English and not exceed 15 pages including all references and figures. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF to the Conference Submission System.
For each accepted paper, at least one author must attend the conference and present the paper. The deadline for identifying and registering this individual author will be at the time when the camera-ready version is submitted.
Best Paper Award
The Best Paper Award, sponsored by Springer, will be given to the paper that the Program Committee judges to be the best in quality, execution, and impact among all the accepted papers in the conference.
