 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, the second edition, ESOCC
 2013, was held in Malaga, Spain, and will be continued by ESOCC 2014 in
Manchester, UK. 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
2014 will include invited talks,
 presentations of selected research papers and an industrial track with the
participation of top researchers from
 industry. ESOCC 2014 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
utilized 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 standards, 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 2014 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 Modeling, 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
 .  Mobile Web Services
 .  Model-Driven Web Service Engineering
 .  Next Generation Web Services Middle-ware 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
 .  Service Computing and Web Services
 .  Service Marketplaces
 .  Service-oriented Software Engineering
 .  Service System Design
 .  Service Value Networks
 .  Web Services in Service-Oriented Environments
 .  Service System Engineering
 .  Web Services Life-Cycles
 .  Web Services Security and Privacy
 .  Big Data Management
 .  Crowd-sourcing Business Services
 .  Cloud Interoperability and Federation
 .  Emerging Trends in Storage, Computation and Network Clouds
 .  Cloud Computing Business Services
 .  Service Science
 .  Smart Services

 ESOCC 2014 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 2014 Industry Track.


 ESOCC 2014 Workshops provide an opportunity for participants to discuss
specific topics in the Service-Oriented and
 Cloud Computing related domains. ESOCC 2013 PhD Symposium is an
international forum for PhD students working
 in any of the topics of the ESOCC conference.


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