------------------------------------------------------Call for
 The Second Workshop on Provisioning and Management of Service Oriented
         Architecture and Cloud Computing (PROMASC'2011)

                 == December 5th, 2011, Paphos-Cyprus ==

                   In conjunction with the ICSOC'2011 Conference

As the paradigm service-oriented architecture gains more prominence in the
development of applications, the way of management of these applications
is becoming a critical feature in order to provide a better quality of
service. Cloud Computing is a technology that provides on-demand access to
massively scalable resources in the field of Service Computing. The
technical foundations of Cloud Computing include service-oriented
architecture (SOA) and virtualizations of hardware and software. It has
emerged as a new paradigm for deploying, managing and offering services
through a shared infrastructure.
Provisioning of SOA and Cloud presents a new set of emerging issues and
challenges that are expected to be identified and resolved by the research
community. It includes issues of the proposed approaches at several levels:
modeling, composition, coordination, planning, scheduling, configuration,
monitoring and analysis. This workshop intends to provide an effective
forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange innovative
ideas and state-of-the-art research, share experiences and lessons learned
from academic research projects as well as real world projects.

Our goal is to bring together researchers and practitioners to stimulate
discussions on the features of provisioning and management of SOA and
Cloud. We are soliciting contributions from both academia and industrials
on the following topics (the list is not exhaustive):
  * QoS Management of SOA and Cloud Computing
  * Provisioning of SOA Virtualization
  * Management of Resources Virtualization
  * Monitoring of Cloud Services
  * Reconfiguration and recovery of Cloud Services
  * Service Level Agreement (SLA) Negotiation, Automation and
    Orchestration for Cloud Computing
  * Provisioning and Scalability on the Cloud
  * Policy Driven Management of SOA and Cloud Computing
  * Availability and Reliability
  * Assurance and Certification of SOA
  * Service Security and Privacy

We encourage contributions of short papers or practical experiences
(max 8 pages) and full papers (max 15 pages), including all references and
figures, with high quality research contributions and experimental results.
Papers should be written in English according to the Springer LNCS format.
Authors must upload electronically their papers as PDF file using the
PROMASC'2011 submission system hosted by Easy Chair.

All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC 2011 post-proceedings published
by Springer-Verlag under the Services Science series.
