                         CALL FOR PAPERS

              European Conference on Service-Oriented 
		   and Cloud Computing (ESOCC'13)

                Malaga, Spain, 11-13 September, 2013
                 supported by IFIP WG 2.14/6.12/8.10



The “European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing” 
(ESOCC) is the premier conference on the advances in the state of the 
art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing in 
Europe. ESOCC has evolved from the ECOWS (European Conference on Web 
Services) conference series, after the Steering Committee decided to 
renew and broaden its scope, and to start a new conference series on 
advanced topics of service-oriented and cloud computing. The first 
edition of the new series, ESSOC 2012, was successfully held in 
Bertinoro, Italy, and will be continued by ESOCC 2013 in Malaga, Spain. 
The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange 
between researchers and practitioners in the areas of SOC and Cloud 
Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. 
ESOCC 2013 will include invited talks, presentations of selected 
research papers and an industrial track with the participation of top 
researchers from industry. ESOCC 2013 will also include a PhD 
symposium and a series of satellite workshops. 


The continued success of service-oriented distributed applications has 
shown that tightly coupled software systems may be useful for niche 
markets, whereas loosely coupled software systems have proven to be more 
flexible, adaptive and often more appropriate for practical applications. 
Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system to interact with other
system components − including legacy systems − that have been developed 
independently somewhere in a heterogeneous universe of services. Thus,
service-oriented applications can evolve more easily during their 
lifespan and adapt better to changing or even unpredictable environments. 
In such scenarios, cloud computing enables a new execution paradigm for 
distributed software application where resources can be shared, optimally 
realized as well as utilised and exchanged between heterogeneous execution
platforms and the cloud, so as to achieve fast response times and to 
ensure immersive and non-interrupted user experience.

Services today are developed independently, deployed as well as freely 
composed, and they can be implemented in a variety of technologies – a 
fact which is of particular importance from a business perspective. 
Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling mobility as well as device, 
platform and/or service independence by offering centralized sharing of 
resources. It promotes interoperability, portability and security
and raises a completely new set of security issues. On the implementation 
side, essential agreement has been reached on integration technologies and
consensus has emerged in today's middleware market. Customers use web 
technologies extensively; however, service developers, providers, and 
integrators need to create methods, tools and techniques to support 
cost-effective and secure development and use of dependable devices, 
platforms, services and service-oriented applications in the cloud. 


ESOCC 2013 seeks original, high quality papers related to all aspects 
of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing, which constitute the main 
technology available to date for implementing service-oriented 
architectures and cloud computing. Topics of interest to the Research 
and Industry Tracks include, but are not limited to: 

  * Business Process Management and Web Services. 
  * Cloud Services Management and Composition using Web Services. 
  * Dynamic and Adaptive Web Services. 
  * Economics Models and Web Services. 
  * Enterprise Architecture and Web Services. 
  * Emerging Trends of Service Composition and Mashups. 
  * Experience reports of novel applications of Service-Oriented and 
    Cloud Computing in Health, Commerce, Finance, Telecom, Scientific   
    Computing and other domains. 
  * Service modelling, service-oriented analysis and design. 
  * Formal Methods for Web Services. 
  * Frameworks for Building Web Service-Based Applications. 
  * Architectural Models for Cloud Computing. 
  * Identity and Access Management using Web Services.

  * Next Generation Web Services Middleware and Service Repositories. 
  * Service quality and service interface design guidelines. 
  * RESTful for Clouds and Web Services. 
  * Self-Organizing Service Oriented and Cloud Architectures. 
  * Semantic Web Services. 
  * Service Level Agreements for Web services. 
  * Service-Oriented Business Collaboration. 
  * SOA Governance and Web Services. 
  * Web Services for Grids and Clouds.

ESOCC 2013 solicits both new research papers (in the main track) as well
as reports on practical experiences from industry (industry track).
However, papers on existing products or product marketing information 
are not within the scope of the ESOCC 2013 Industry Track.


ESOCC 2013 Workshops provide an opportunity for participants to discuss 
specific topics in the Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing related
domains. Workshop proposals must consist of the following items: 
  * name and acronym of the workshop,
  * motivation: short (up to 1 page) scientific justification of the
    proposed topic and scope, its significance and relevance to ESOCC, 
    and the particular benefits of the workshop to the service-oriented 
    and cloud computing communities,
  * name, affiliation, and short (up to 10 lines) bio of the workshop 
  * contact organizer, 
  * desired length of the workshop (half day or full day), 
  * estimate of the audience size, 
  * proposed format and agenda (e.g., demo sessions, tutorials, etc.), 
  * potential invited speakers,
  * any specific requirement the workshop may have,
  * procedures for selecting papers and participants, 
  * plans for dissemination, if any (e.g., special issues of journals), 
  * preliminary call for papers and link to the workshop website (if
  * information about previous editions (if applicable).

Proposals are due by March 3rd, 2013 by email to
workshops.esocc2013 at lcc.uma.es. 
Organizers will be notified by March 17, 2013. All accepted workshops will
be asked to provide a webpage, call for papers, and list of invited

ESOCC 2013 Workshops will be held on September 11, 2013. Workshop

The ESOCC 2013 PhD Symposium is an international forum for PhD students
working in any of the areas addressed by the ESOCC conference. The 
main aim of the Symposium is to give PhD students an opportunity to 
present their research activity and perspectives, to critically 
discuss them with other PhD students and with established researchers 
in the area, and to get fruitful feedback and advices on their research 
activity. PhD students working in any area addressed by the ESOCC 
conference can submit a short report providing a clear statement of the
problem they intend to address, motivating the interest and novelty of 
the underlying research challenges, demonstrating the ideas by examples,
and describing the proposed research plan and expected results. Reports 
should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to the LNCS proceedings 
guidelines. The papers should be authored by the PhD student and should 
indicate the name of her/his supervisor. Submissions must be sent by 
email to the symposium chair Wolf Zimmermann 
(wolf.zimmermann at informatik.uni-halle.de). 


Original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be 
submitted via EasyChair.
