The WESOA series of workshops addresses challenges that arise from
unique characteristics of service-oriented applications by focusing on
principles, methodologies and tools that support the entire
service-oriented software development lifecycle.

Topics of interest include software service development lifecycle
methodologies, service-oriented enterprise architectures, service
engineering for cloud computing environments, models, languages and
methods for service-oriented analysis and design, and related topics.

WESOA 2015 continues a successful series of ICSOC workshops. Over the
past decade, WESOA has demonstrated its relevance by attracting a large
number of contributors and participants from academia as well as
industry, and producing high-quality papers that were published by
Springer LNCS series.


Service-oriented applications play an important role in many areas like
enterprise computing, cloud computing and the Web. While there is an
agreement about the main principles for designing and developing such
applications, methodologies and tools that support the development of
service-oriented applications are still a subject of intensive research.

It is recognized that traditional software engineering approaches
require extensions in the context of service-oriented computing and that
there is a need for engineering methods to support the development of
software services. In this area, close collaboration between the
research community and industry practitioners is essential to develop
comprehensive engineering methodologies and tools that support the
entire lifecycle of service-oriented applications.

WESOA complements ICSOC by focusing on core software engineering issues
in the context of service-oriented systems, keeping pace with emerging
application areas of service computing such mobile, social, cloud
computing, smart environments and IoT.


WESOA encourages a transdisciplinary perspective and welcomes papers on
topics that include, but are not limited to the following:

- Software service development lifecycle methodologies and processes
- Service design and service design metrics
- Distributed and collaborative software service development
- Service-oriented reference models and frameworks
- Architectural styles and standards for software service systems
- Concepts, technologies and best practices of Microservice architectures
- Management and governance of service engineering projects
- Models, languages and methods for service-oriented analysis and design
- Costing, valuation and quality metrics of software service design
- Requirements-engineering for software service systems
- Service-oriented business process modelling
- Validation, verification and testing of software service systems
- Service assembly, composition and aggregation models and languages
- Model-driven SOA and service systems development
- Reverse engineering of software service systems
- Tool support for software service engineering
- Engineering of software services for the cloud
- Service engineering for context-awareness and mobile devices
- Service engineering in smart environments and IoT
- Engineering service-oriented applications in social network contexts
- Engineering of data intensive service-oriented systems
- Case studies and best practices of service-oriented development
