IEEE SOSE 2015 Call for Papers

Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as the fundamental elements for developing computer-based systems, and represents a paradigm shift away from traditional distributed systems. Service-oriented systems are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, large-scale, and complex. Such systems are often distributed across large numbers of resources in different geographical locations running on heterogeneous infrastructure, with a large and increasing number of diverse users demanding new techniques for data management and processing.

With SOC coming of age, conceptually well-founded and, at the same time, practical approaches supporting the whole range of engineering service-oriented systems, i.e., models, architectures, infrastructures, design, implementation, deployment, testing, delivery, consumption, maintenance, evaluation and evolution, are still missing in almost all non-basic areas. Hence, the main themes of the 2015 symposium try to put a new focus on these important aspects of SOC:

Continuing the tradition of the last eight SOSE Symposia, the 9th SOSE will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights, achievements and visions in Service-Oriented System Engineering. Particularly, SOSE 2015 invites original submissions in all areas of process and system engineering, as well as software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for process- and service-oriented systems and software services.

A. Regular Research Papers

Research papers should be no more than 10 pages in length. All papers should be prepared using the IEEE format, please see this page. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three TPC members. Authors must submit their manuscripts using the EasyChair conference system using this link.

B. Industry Practice / Case Study papers

SOSE 2015 encourages papers report industry practice, case studies, empirical research and practical experiences in service engineering are invited. Industry papers and case studies should be between 6-10 pages in length. The topics include, but not limited to the following:

C. Survey and Emerging Subjects Tutorial Papers

In addition to regular research paper and industry practice/case study paper sessions, SOSE 2015 will also invite some tutorial papers, which review the state-of-the-art of the research on services engineering as well as the related emerging paradigms and technologies. These papers should summarize the recent research advance in service engineering from different perspectives, identify the open issues and future trends and challenges in the field. SOSE 2015 also encourages discussion papers which target at the visions on future related issues, including the emerging paradigms, technologies and applications. Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length.
The topics include, but not limited to, the following:
