SOSE 2011: Preliminary CALL FOR PAPERS

The 6th IEEE International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering
December 12-14, 2011, Irvine, CA, USA


Collocated with SOCA, KSEM, RTSOAA and KASTLES

Important Dates: Submission: July 20, 2011
Notification:  Aug. 20, 2011
Camera Ready Copy: Sept. 23, 2011
Symposium:  Dec. 12 -14, 2011

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society;
- Arizona State University

- University of Leeds


Starting from 2005, SOSE is one of the pioneering symposia
devoted to the research in engineering service-oriented systems.
It has addressed issues in various aspects of engineering SOA-based systems
architecture and computing paradigm to the development and quality
validation problems
and solutions. Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as the
elements for developing computer-based systems. It has been applied to
various areas
and promotes fundamental changes to system architecture.
SOC changes the way software
systems are being analyzed, architected, designed, implemented, tested,
delivered, consumed, maintained, and evolved, SOSE symposia focuses on the
SOC from
the perspectives of software engineering and system engineering.
Recently, cloud computing
 further expands the scope of SOC to include new subjects such as Platform
as a Service (PaaS),
Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and
Testing as a Service (TaaS).

Continuing the tradition of the last five SOSE Symposia, the 6th SOSE
provides a forum
for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights,
achievements and visions in the engineering of service systems.
Particularly, SOSE 2011
invites original submissions in all the areas of the system engineering,
software engineering
methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software

A. Regular Research Papers. The topics include, but are not limited to, the

B. Applications and Industry Experiences
Papers report case studies,
empirical research and practical experiences in service engineering are
The topics include but not limited to the following.

- Enterprise architecture and solution frameworks
- Platforms and tools for system and software engineering
- Application composition based on services

C. Review of the State-Of-The-Art of the Research on Service Engineering and

Emergent Subjects

In addition to regular research papers sessions, this year
the symposium will invite tutorial papers which review the current advance
in service engineering and related emergent subjects.

These papers should summarize the recent research advance in service
from different perspectives, identify the open issues and future needs and
in the field. In addition, SOSE 2011 also welcome timely problem discussion
that focus on new issues, needs and challenges in emergent subjects.
The topics include, but not limited to, the following:
- Modeling, simulation and static analysis of service-oriented  systems,
- Testing, verification, validation and quality assurance in the development
service oriented systems

- Governance and policies in service oriented software development

- Engineering techniques and tools to support the publishing, discovery and
composition of services

- Architectural and detail designs of services and code generation of
service software

- Techniques and tool support the deployment and execution of services

- Measurements and metrics of QoS in SOA-based application systems
Paper Submission:

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers
as well as industrial practice papers and position papers.
Simultaneous submissions to other publication venues are not permitted.
