Call For Papers
13th Symposium and Summer School On Service-Oriented Computing,
June 17 – June 23, 2019 in Crete, Greece
SummerSoC is a well-established summer school and symposium focusing on service-oriented computing. The area of service-oriented computing is interpreted quite broadly, i.e. areas of interest for SummerSoC include cloud computing, microservice architecture, service orchestrations, service meshes, blockchains, Internet of Things, theoretical foundations of these subjects, and applications in/of all these areas, especially applications dealing with big/smart data and data sciences. Also, cross-domain subjects like eScience, digital humanities, or quantum computing are considered.
At SummerSoC, renowned researchers and leading industry practitioners give tutorials and invited talks on current topics from the areas above. PhD students present posters of their ongoing work and give plenary presentations of their theses. The agenda ensures that enough time is allocated for a lot of discussions. Participants come from both, academia as well as industry, and from all over the world.
SummerSoC is also a forum for presenting and discussing research from the areas above. Interested researchers submit papers that are peer-reviewed. In addition to novel research work, we also ask for application and experience papers as well as overview papers (these submissions have to be marked accordingly). Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend SummerSoC 2019, present their paper in the plenum as well as in the poster session.
Accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the IBM Technical Report series. Best papers will be published in a Special Issue of the Springer Journal ‘Software-Intensive Cyber-Physical Systems (SICS)’, 2019. Additionally, the extended abstracts of the accepted posters will be published in the IBM Technical Report.
We invite submissions on the following topics:
Developing services for the cloud
Moving existing services to the cloud
Methods and tools for developing “cloud native” services
DevOps paradigm for services
Microservices, Function as a Service, and Serverless
Cloud federations and interoperability among clouds
Cloud & IoT
Automatic provisioning and management
Transaction models, consistency models, and coordination models
Advanced types of applications
Decentralized applications (blockchains,…)
Use of Quantum Computers
Big/smart Data and Data Science
Computational Models for Big Data
Software Systems to Support Big Data Computing
Cloud/Grid/Stream Computing for Big Data
Big Data in Motion and Big Data at Rest

Applications of services
eHealth, e.g. Connected Health
Smart energy/smart grids/smart cities
eScience & Digital Humanities
SummerSoC will also grant the “SummerSoC Young Researcher Award” to the best paper in one of the areas above. A potential awardee must be (i) first author of a paper accepted for SummerSoC 2019, and (ii) PhD student. The award is associated with 500€ for the awardee, sponsored by the renowned ICSOC conference series.

The 13th Symposium and Summer School in Service-Oriented Computing is directed by leading experts, faculty at well-known universities, and industrial R&D leaders in the field of Service-Oriented Computing (SOC). All of them have been involved in previous efforts to establish Services Science as a fundamental paradigm for computing and software architecture.
