5th International Workshop on
Principles of Engineering Service-Oriented Systems (PESOS 2013)

in conjunction with ICSE 2013
San Francisco, CA, USA, May 26, 2013


**Call for Papers**


Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and service-oriented systems,
which are built using the SOA paradigm, are now in the stage of
widespread adoption, at least according to Gartner’s Hype Cycle of
Emerging Technologies. Due to the fact that some of the standards for
service integration have stabilized, and driven by IT cost savings,
organizations are starting to incorporate external software services
into their systems, some of which are hosted in the cloud. From a
provider perspective, many commercial companies such as Oracle, SAP,
Intuit, and Netflix either have cloud-based offerings of their
products or run their business completely in the cloud.

The special theme of the 5th edition of the PESOS workshop is "Service
Engineering for the Cloud." Cloud Computing is shaping the way that
organizations acquire and use systems --- software-as-a-service (SaaS)
model --- and how they develop and deploy systems ---
platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)
models. Even though cloud platforms and infrastructures are typically
designed to scale on demand, the question is whether this automatic
elasticity translates to all services deployed on them.


PESOS 2013 seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the
following topics related to software engineering for services in the

- Service engineering for elasticity, scalability, monitorability, and
other attributes expected of cloud services
- Methods and tools for design-time software engineering support for
desired runtime behavior
- Management of service-oriented systems in the cloud
- Adaptation and evolution of service-oriented systems
- Service personalization and context-aware provisioning
- Service dependability, survivability, reliability and resilience
- Trust, security, and privacy in service-oriented systems
- Verification and Validation of service-oriented systems
- Quality of service (QoS) and Service-level Agreements (SLAs)
- System migration to service-oriented systems in the cloud
- Service delivery models for mobile users
- Service-oriented systems supporting cloud-based provisioning
- Case studies and industry experiences

In addition, PESOS 2013 will continue "The Quest for Case Studies."
Started at PESOS 2012 as a special session, we are now making it an
essential part of the workshop as the forum for researchers and
practitioners sharing this vision and willing to contribute with their
effort and experience. The goal is to create the reference set of case
studies for the research community in service-oriented systems, hosted
on a publicly available repository: <http://www.s-cube-network.eu/use-cases>

*Paper Submission and Publication*

The submission and review process will be done using EasyChair
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pesos2013). Submissions must follow
the IEEE formatting guidelines. All accepted papers will be published
in the conference electronic proceedings and in both ACM Digital
Library and IEEE Digital Library.

All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality,
technical quality and relevance to the workshop theme. The page limit
for regular papers is 10 pages and 2 pages for case study
descriptions. In addition, accepted case study submissions must commit
to place all case study artifacts in the public repository.
