Call for Papers: PROMASC 2013
The Second Track on Provisioning and Management of Service Oriented 
Architecture and Cloud Computing

Conference Track @ the 22nd WETICE Conference (www.wetice.org)
June 17-20, 2013, Hammamet, Tunisia

Paper Submission: February 1, 2013
Decision Notification: March 15, 2013
Camera-Ready Submission : May 1, 2013
Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the 
International Journal of Cloud Computing

As the paradigm service-oriented architecture gains more prominence in 
the development of collaborative 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 collaborative 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, collaboration, planning, 
scheduling, monitoring and analysis.

This Track 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 
facilitate stimulating discussions on the different challenges and 
requirements 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):

* Collaborative technologies for QoS Management of SOA and Cloud 
* Service Virtualization for SOA
* Collaborative Management of Virtualized Cloud Resources
* Monitoring of Cloud Services
* Reconfiguration and recovery of Cloud Services
* Modeling and Specification of collaborative Cloud services
* Service Level Agreement (SLA) Negotiation, Automation and 
Orchestration for Cloud Computing
* Cloud Federation
* Availability and Reliability of Collaborative Cloud
* Cloud and SOA Security and Privacy

We encourage contributions of short papers or practical experiences (max 
3 pages) and full papers (max 6 pages), including all references and 
figures, with high quality research contributions and experimental 
results. Papers should be written in English according to the IEEE 
guidelines (single spaced, two columns, 10pt, Times font) 
Authors must upload electronically their papers as PDF file using the 
PROMASC'2013 submission system hosted by Easy Chair.
