Call For Papers

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. During the past edition of ECOWS (European Conference on Web Services) conference, the Steering Committee decided to renew and broaden its scope, and to start a new conference series on the topics of service-oriented and cloud computing. The first edition of the new series, ESSOC 2012, will be held in Bertinoro from 19th to 21st of September, 2012. The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. The ESOCC 2012 conference will include invited speakers, presentations of contributed research papers and an industrial track with the participation of top researchers from industry. ESOCC 2012 will also include a PhD symposium and satellite workshops.


The success encountered by the Web has shown that tightly coupled software systems are only good for niche markets, whereas loosely coupled software systems can be more flexible, more adaptive and often more appropriate in practice. Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system to interact with other systems, possibly legacy systems that share very little with it. When applications are developed with service-oriented architectures, they can evolve more easily during their lifespan and adapt better to changing or even unpredictable environments. On the other hand, cloud computing enables a new application execution paradigm where resources can be optimally utilised and exchanged between heterogeneous execution platforms and the cloud, so as to achieve fast response times and ensure immersive and non-interrupted user experience. Services today are developed and deployed in a black-box manner, which is of particular importance from a business perspective since services are implemented in a variety of technologies. Similarly, cloud computing tries to enable the mobility and the device and platform independence by promoting interoperability, portability and security standards. Essential is agreement on integration technology and consensus has emerged in today's middleware market: Customers want to use Web technologies. However, service integrators, developers, and providers need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective development and use of dependable services and service-oriented applications in the cloud.

Topics of interest

The ESOCC 2012 program committee 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, the following:
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

It should be noted that papers on existing product descriptions or product marketing information are not within the scope of the ESOCC 2012 Industrial Track.

PhD Symposium

The ESOCC 2012 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 indicate the name of her/his supervisor. Submissions must be sent by email to the symposium chair Wolf Zimmermann ( ).
